Frequency of Motorcycle Accidents in the Bay Area
According to statistics, close to a million motorcycles exist in California. Approximately 12,000 motorcycle injuries occur every year in California resulting in nearly 500 fatalities. Motorcyclists residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, especially residents who are under 34 years of age, are also subject to incurring injuries caused by negligence.
Motorcycle and Automobile Accidents are not the Same
A person involved in a motorcycle accident has a much greater chance of experiencing a fatality than an individual involved in a car accident. People involved in serious motorcycle accidents only have a 20 percent chance of survival. But individuals involved in car crashes have an 80 percent chance. Victims of motorcycle accidents frequently suffer from road rash, a common name for serious skin abrasions requiring intensive care. Motorcycle injuries may also cause loss of limbs and other fractures that may not typically occur in car accidents.
Other Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
A motorcyclist involved in an accident with a motor vehicle may incur a traumatic brain injury (TBI) causing a permanent mental or physical disability. A person suffering from a TBI can experience serious cognitive problems involving short-term memory loss. Additionally, an automobile driver can cause a motorcyclist to incur severe injuries to the spinal cord resulting in complete paralysis.
Most Motorcycle Injuries are Caused by Negligent Vehicle Drivers
According to the reputable Hurt Report, most motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers of motor vehicles. Motorcyclists are rarely at fault. From violating a motorcyclist’s right-of-way to not seeing a biker, a good percentage of motorcycle injuries are caused by negligence. Additionally, motorcycle accidents frequently take place in busy intersections. The cause is often negligence on the part of the person driving a car, van, truck or SUV. Negligence does not necessarily mean that a driver intentionally injured the motorcyclist. When you meet with our motorcycle accident attorney, you will learn whether your accident was caused by an act of negligence.
