Motorbike Accident attorneySamer Habbas and other Long Beach motorcycle accident lawyers are alarmed at the steady rise in California motorcycle accidents year after year. They can’t prevent negligent drivers from failing to observe motorcyclist’s rights of way, but they can raise awareness about the causes of these accidents and the toll they take on victims and their families. To that end, here are some things that you should know:

The single-largest cause of California motorcycle accidents is motorist’s failure to see motorcycles in traffic.

The most common type of motorcycle accident is when an automobile strikes a rider while making a left turn into the path of the oncoming rider who was proceeding straight.

Motorcycle accidents are most likely to occur in intersections with another vehicle violating a motorcyclist’s right of way and usually disobeying a traffic signal.

Motorcycle riders can reduce their chances of being involved in an accident significantly by increasing their visibility to automobile drivers by wearing brightly colored yellow, orange, or red jackets.

Of motorcycle riders hurt in accidents, 92% taught themselves how to ride or learned from friends or family. More than half of these accident victims have less than five months’ experience riding the bike they were on when the accident occurred. Riders with dirt bike experience are much less likely to be involved in a motorcycle accident.

Around three in four motorcycle accidents involve the bike colliding with another vehicle, most likely a passenger vehicle.

Alcohol is a factor in almost half of all fatal motorcycle accidents.

Motorcyclists have little to protect them in an accident and often suffer very serious and even fatal injuries.
