Car Vs. Motorcycle: Cars Usually To Blame

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Motorcycle Accident

If you ever get the chance (if you haven’t already), ride a motorcycle. Either drive one or ride with someone. Riding on a motorcycle is a beautiful and thrilling experience. When riding on a motorcycle you get the whole view of the world. Your view isn’t cut by windows or does. You get to see everything and feel everything. If the sun is out you feel the warmth. If it starts to rain then you better get to an overpass quickly or else you will get drenched. If you are a lover of nature then you will love the feel of a motorcycle. However glorious it feels to ride, there are always people who are ready to ruin the experience: cars.

Our Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg has represented the victims of motorcycle accidents for over 30 years. With each client, we are in awe of their perseverance and willingness to fight for life. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a collision than car passengers. The increased risk comes from the same reasons people love riding a motorcycle. There is no protection for motorcyclists outside their riding gear. If you are in a car and get rear-ended, your whole car protects you. When your tire is rear-ended, you are thrown from your bike.

Cars Are Mostly To Blame

Almost two-thirds of all accidents are caused by some other vehicle that ignored the motorcyclist’s right of way. Cars have a way of obstructing motorcyclists. Those who drive cars are only looking for other cars. They are not actively looking for motorcyclists. This is an issue because many accidents are avoidable had the driver been more aware of their surroundings. Such is the case when a car driver decided to do a U-turn in the middle of the road. While attempting to make a U-turn the SUV collided with a motorcyclist. The motorcyclist was then thrown from his bike resulting in his death.

After the accident, both lanes of traffic were closed for five hours for an investigation to take place. Thankfully the owner of the SUV stayed because sometimes people engage in a hit-and-run. If the SUV was simply following the rules of the road, this death could have been avoided. Yet decisions like this are made every day. It doesn’t take much for motorcyclists to fall and get hurt. Those who drive cars need to take the time to look for motorcyclists. It is truly a death situation.

What To Do

If you or someone you love is an avid motorcycle rider then let’s hope they ride cautiously and defensively. However, accidents are accidents. They happen and they can lead to fatal injuries. Our attorneys in Los Angeles at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg are ready to work for you if you do end up with an injury from a vehicle accident.
