Los Angeles approves settlement with motorcycle crash victim

Motorcycling in California comes with many advantages, like the ability to experience the Golden State in all its splendor and occasionally split lanes on a crowded freeway. There are also plenty of risks, and many of them are the same as the advantages. Most motorcycle accidents are just that, but many accidents may have been caused by more than just bad luck.

From lane-splitting on the freeway to hugging curves on the Pacific Coast Highway, motorcycling carries its risks in California. Bikes are harder to see than conventional vehicles, and they offer almost no protection to riders in the case of a collision. Experienced bikers know how to protect themselves, but sometimes that is not enough.

Motorcycles are one of the most exciting vehicles one could drive in California, but they are also one of the most hazardous. The lack of protection afforded to riders, as well as the difficulty in seeing a vehicle with a small profile, are dangers enough. But the damage and injury done by drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol are equally more dangerous to bikers.

Knowing common motorcycle accidents may help prevent them

Anyone who buys a motorcycle has a love for the road that is unique and often more intense than other drivers. Bikes can be more fun, maneuverable and fast, but that advantages come with risks. Riders may be more likely to suffer serve injury or death than occupants of a car in a collision.
