Motorcycle Accident Lawyers - Santa Ana
Santa Ana weather is beautiful year round making it an ideal city to own and ride a motorcycle. Unfortunately bikers are at a much bigger risk for a collision with another vehicle as they sometimes go unnoticed by motorists.
According to the 2010 census, Santa Ana has a population of 324,528, making it the largest city in Orange County, California. The city is part of the second largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and the 4th-most densely populated city in the United States. With such a large number of citizens driving in a relatively small space it is no wonder that the number of motorcycle accidents continues to warrant concern.
Santa Ana Motorcycle Accidents and Statistics
According to the 2009 California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 46 people were injured due to Santa Ana motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, many of these injuries were severe because riders have so little protection when they are involved in a collision. Drivers complain that motorcycle riders are harder to see, but the obvious problem is that drivers tend to not pay enough attention to motorcyclists and it leads to devastating results.
In June of 2011, a man suffered life-threatening injuries when the driver of a Toyota Highlander collided with his motorcycle at the intersection of Maple and First Street in Santa Ana. The motorcycle victim was immediately transported to the nearest hospital where he received emergency care that kept him alive. This is not the first motorcycle accident at this intersection and some locals claim that the landscape makes it difficult to see in every direction.
In August of 2011, a man riding his Harley-Davidson was struck by a white Honda Accord. The motorcycle collision occurred on North Bristol Street, near Memory Lane, and the rider was immediately transported to a local hospital for emergency treatment. The driver who struck the motorcyclist was exiting his apartment complex when the collision occurred.
