HUNTINGTON BEACH MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Defending Riders Injured in California Highway Collisions
For many riders, motorcycles are more than just a mode of transportation: They represent a way of life. Unfortunately, this hobby is not without its risks. According to data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), more than 2,100 riders are killed every year, and motorcyclists are 16 times more likely to be killed per mile traveled than drivers and passengers of conventional vehicles.
Motorcyclists have an unfair reputation for recklessness, but this is not necessarily warranted. The statistics tell a different story. Studies show that most motorcycle accidents involving conventional passenger vehicles are the fault of drivers, not riders. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident in Orange County, take action to protect your rights. You could be entitled to compensation for injuries suffered and losses sustained in the collision.
Motorcycle Helmet Safety
It's important to know the facts so you can protect yourself:
- In motorcycle accidents, head injuries are the primary cause of death and catastrophic injury. It is extremely important to wear a helmet that has been approved by federal safety regulations.
- Research studies have demonstrated that, when it comes to preventing fatal injuries, helmets are 29% effective.
- Helmets are 67% effective in preventing traumatic brain injury.
