Every single day there are millions of motorcycle drivers that travel on roads in California. Unfortunately, some of these individuals are injured at no fault of their own. Motorcycle vs car or truck accidents can be very severe because there is not a metal frame to protect the body of a motorcycle driver. In fact, some of the most tragic car accident cases are ones in which a motorcyclist is thrown off his bike and has no protected when impact occurs.

Motorcycle Accident Head On Collisions
Some of the most dangerous types of vehicular accidents are motorcycle accident head on collisions. In June 2016, a Harley Davidson motorcyclist was killed after being struck head on by a truck. When a motorcycle hits any type of obstruction head on the rider has very little to protect him or her from impact.
Another major concern with motorcycle head on collisions is the lack of an airbag. Airbag technology has saved millions of lives in cars, trucks vans and SUVs. Unfortunately, this type of technology is not available in motorcycles, especially sport bikes. There are some sport bikes that don’t have a windshield. When riding on a sport bike or motorcycle on the interstates in Southern California it is very important to use caution. Many drivers are unaware of motorcycles because they are much smaller and faster than vehicles. This means a motorcycle can go in and out of a blind spot in a split second.

This is extremely dangerous for all involved. Too often we hear of deaths caused by a drunk driver.
When a motorcycle gets into an accident with a vehicle the injuries are often serious. If a motorcycle or vehicle is being operated by a drunk driver or a driver under the influence the chances of serious injury or death are escalated.
