Have you been involved in a motorcycle accident? If you have, chances are you have been injured as a result. Injuries due to motorcycle accidents can sometimes be life threatening, and other times injuries can be so severe that they become lifetime changes that you have to adapt to. Unfortunately, someone else's negligence can contribute to some of the most disastrous times of our lives. In these situations, costs can become astronomical and out of the realm of feasibility for most people to overcome. Fortunately, there are solutions and ways around this. The best thing you can do is contact a Long Beach motorcycle accident lawyer. They will be able to help you with more than just telling you you have a case. They will be your advocate and a strong member of your team as you tavel down the often harsh, difficult road of recovery. Let's take a look at some of the latest information about motorcycle accidents.

Teams of researchers from universities and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are going out to the scenes of motorcycle crashes nationwide that various police agencies are actively investigating. Their goal is to gather the latest data. Each analysis plans to comprise a detailed examination of the motorbike and all its components. They plan to interview the rider if he survived the crash, and check out the various rider and passenger impact points. Interviews will be with riders who crashed as well as bikers who run the same route who avoided collisions. Assessment of health accounts are included and a lot more. Each accident study will require study of 300 incidents and is anticipated to take until the year 2013 to complete.

Other experiments underway include studying whether safety training actually saves lives, or whether just gaining skill through practice plays a more significant role in avoiding a incidents. Researchers are also examining directions bikers look as they ride, and if visual scanning abilities can be honed.

An investigative assembly is checking at dissimilar groups of enthusiasts such as cruisers, sport bikers, touring drivers and others to decide if any particular group have habits universal to the initial group putting them at additional danger of incidents than the others. Lastly, study by the MSF will use digital video and data devices to confirm rider performance in an effort to see what riders do to evade crashes and what they do incorrectly when they smash up.

It's a new year filled with new laws, especially in regards to motorcycle safety. California is unique in that this state has a completely different set of rules than the rest of the country.

Among the new legislation that has gone into effect:

A new, required motorcycle safety course has been instituted for under-21 motorcycle permit applicants. This new law requires any individual under the age of 21 to fully attend and complete a state regulated motorcycle safety course. This must be completed and certified  before the person is issued a permit with which they can practice driving a motorcycle. It further requires the permit must be held for a full six months before the person can be issued a California class M motorcycle driver license. Currently over 6,000 drivers who are 19 years and younger are licensed to ride a motorcycle in California.

There are a series of new oversights regarding the flood of online traffic violator schools. Prior to this new law the DMV only licensed "brick and mortar" classroom traffic violator schools. This new law will bring court-approved courses, such as online and home study traffic schools into the DMV Traffic Violator School licensing program and implements a number of preferences included in a DMV study of traffic violator school issues. This law will have a 3-year implementation process.

New Laws to be aware of. Remember, there are new traffic laws that will affect you. Text directly from the State of California Site.

  • Organ Donation (SB 1395/Alquist) Starting July 1, the language on the DMV's application offers the driver license applicant the option to register as a prospective organ donor in the organ donor program or to defer that decision to a later time. This change will now include in the organ donor registration field of the application check boxes indicating (A) Yes, add my name to the donor registry or (B) I do not wish to register at this time, thus ensuring that the applicant’s failure to check the box is not simply an oversight.
  • Local Traffic Ordinances (SB 949/Oropeza) On July 1, in an effort of ensuring that traffic convictions are recorded by the Department of Motor Vehicles, local authorities may not enact or enforce a local ordinance on any matter covered by the California Vehicle Code.
  • Driving Under the Influence (AB 1601/Hill) Effective in January 1, 2012, this bill authorizes a court to order a 10-year revocation of the driver license of a person convicted of a third or subsequent DUI violation, with possible reinstatement after five years if specified conditions are met.
