If you live in the Bakersfield area, then you know just how well it lends itself to riding a motorcycle. The Southern California sun beats down on you and your group as you ride. The roads are open and full of possibilities. You are even just fifty miles down the road from Sequoia National Park and other great landmarks. Southern California also has, however, some of the highest rates of incidents between motorcycles and other vehicles in the United States, however. Most of these incidents are due to negligence as well, meaning that they can happen to anyone.
According to the Department of Transportation, there are over 7,000 motorcycle accidents in Southern California annually, and with more motorists on the road each year, that number is likely to rise. This equates to about 11,000 people that were injured from these crashes. If you are familiar with motorcycles at all, you know that these accidents can be debilitating. In fact, of those approximately 11,000 injuries, almost 500 of them were killed in their accident. So what should you do if you or a loved one are involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence? You should call a Bakersfield motorcycle/bicycle accident lawyer.
