Thousands of automobile-related accidents occur in Los Angeles ever year. Automobiles are the main mode of transportation for the citizens of this city, thereby increasing the odds of automobile-related accidents. Negligence is often the cause of automobile accidents. Drivers who drive while inebriated, or while talking on the phone or texting, have caused thousands of accidents, resulting in injuries to be both the negligent driver and the victim in the other car. But careful and precise drivers can also cause automobile accidents. While responsible drivers are always on the lookout for other automobiles, there is less of a chance that the driver will be looking out for a motorcyclist. If that responsible driver strikes down a motorcycle and its operator, that driver is negligent and has just caused a traffic accident.
Motorcycle accidents are prevalent on the road because they are smaller vehicles, and therefore harder to spot by drivers. Most drivers are trained to look out for larger vehicles such as automobiles and trucks. Motorcycles are smaller than both automobiles and trucks and can fit in tighter spaces, allowing them to be extra mobile with more freedom on the road. This extra mobility also increases the chances of potentially allowing an automobile to cause a collision with the motorcyclist. Motorcycle riders are 5 times more likely to become injured in an automobile accident, and 26 times more likely to die from his or her sustained injuries. Even the most careful driver has a potential of acting negligently when they are unaware of motorcyclists on the road.
The injuries that motorcycle riders sustain can be more serious and life-threatening than riders in a regular automobile. A motorcycle rider on his or her vehicle is more exposed than a car or truck driver, and when a collision occurs, the injuries are expected to be infinitely more severe. Head and brain trauma may result, as well as brutal
spinal chord injuries and serious cuts and lacerations. In this instance, the motorcycle rider has an opportunity to contact a
