You love the sense of freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle or bicycle. You love that it is you and the open road, without the frame of a car holding you back. You love how your bike leans around corners and the air rushing past you. You also take your responsibility seriously with the right helmet and safety gear.
Nonetheless, more than 3,000 motorcyclists are injured every year in southern California. When these people are injured, it is usually a result of someone else’s negligence or incompetence. When you are involved in an accident, you need the experience of the Eastvale motorcycle accident lawyers at El Dabe Law.
Causes Of Eastvale Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle or bicycle is more hazardous than driving a car. You are at higher risk of road conditions as well as being ignored by other drivers on the road. Most motorcycle or bicycle accidents can be categorized into these areas:
Unsafe Road Conditions: Cars do not have to worry about the road conditions as much as motorcycles and bicycles. What is a little pothole or a small puddle to a normal car can be catastrophic to a motorcycle? Municipalities have a responsibility to keep road conditions safe for all motorists. When they fail to do so, they need to compensate the rider and their family for the damages they suffer.
Driver Negligence: There are more motorists opting for the freedom brought with biking and motorcycling. Nonetheless, many motorists are still oblivious to their presence on the roadways. When a driver is overly aggressive, fails to check their blind spots, or fails to yield, it can cause serious injury. These drivers need to be reminded that there are consequences for their negligence and you need an experienced attorney to seek the right damages.
Equipment Failure: Equipment failure on a car can be dangerous, but on a motorcycle, it can be deadly. Unfortunately, everything mechanical is subject to periodic failures, but the sheer number of automotive recalls is evidence that manufacturers are taking shortcuts on engineering and materials that can cost people their lives. If you are injured due to your motorcycle failing the company responsible for that failure needs to make restitution for your damages.
