Cars often don’t see motorcycles or their riders, especially on the fast paced freeways of the Inland Empire area. Unlike Los Angeles, where the two wheeled motorcycles can more likely eject their rider in low speed crashes, Riverside, for example, is a much less crowded and populous area. As such, there is less to slow passenger cars and big trucks down, and they fly along at speeds in excess of 65 MPH quite often.
The speed poses a different risk to riders than other types of transportation. The rider only has seconds to react and sometimes cannot. Often these incidents happen when a car driver is making a left hand turn, causing a biker into a head first crash with the side of the car– tossing the rider into the air. Close calls happen every day and are not normally the rider’s fault. Even the safety equipment like pads and helmets are not always enough.
While rider experience can help avoid these accidents, most of these crashes happen within 5 months of owning a newer bike– even if the rider has plenty of experience. These difficult crashes do not involve seatbelts or airbags and can cause a series of injuries, including ruptured discs, road rash, brain injuries, or even death. Due to our knowledge of the tort laws, our attorneys will guide you every step of the way.
There is a higher chance of accidents in the greater LA area, which includes the Inland Empire, as well as Orange County. As shown by statistics. The California Vehicle Code provides for the rules of the road but drivers that ignore them can cause accidents. This could be a situation where a rebut-able presumption of negligence (aka negligence per se) and ultimate liability.
In many cases, car drivers could be liable for a mischance traffic accident, even if they were operating the car at or below the posted speed limits or obeying other traffic laws.
Even in these cases, the “safe” speed is not just the posted speed. Due to roadway defects, fog, or sun issues, drivers should be operating at lower speeds. These conditions cause the need for more caution, including pulling over to the curb until safe. If safety is not shown, then there could be an accident, especially involving an motorcycle.
