Cypress Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Cypress motorcycle accident lawyers

There are many Cypress motorcycle accidents in every year in California, and because motorcycles provide very little protection for riders, it is common for riders to suffer serious injuries that affect their quality of life.

Riders have it in their best interest to educate themselves on motorcycle accident statistics as a reminder of how dangerous riding a motorcycle can be.Caution should be exercised at all times. Unfortunately, even the most careful riders can be involved in an accident when the other driver involved is negligent or reckless.

Anyone injured in a motorcycle accident would be well advised to speak with an experienced Cypress personal injury attorney who will protect your legal rights and best interests.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

A review of motorcycle accidents locally, county-wide, statewide and nationwide is a good way to understand how many accidents happen and how potentially dangerous riding a motorcycle can be.

Below are bike crash statictics reported by the SWITRS and CDC:

  • 14 injuries were reported as a result of Cypress motorcycle accidents in a single year
  • 17 fatalities and 735 injuries took place in Orange County
  • 389 fatalities and 10,134 injuries reported as a result of motorcycle accidents in the state of California
  • Motorcycle riders between the ages of 20 and 24 had the greatest chance of suffering an injury followed by riders between the ages of 25 and 29
  • 30 percent of all motorcycle accident injuries involved leg or foot trauma and approximately
  • 22 percent of motorcycle injuries involve damage to the head or neck

Ways to Prevent Cypress Motorcycle Accidents

There are a number of safety measures motorcyclists can take to avoid being in an accident or suffering a serious injury in a collision. All Orange County motorcyclists would be well advised to wear a DOT-approved helmet and to wear appropriate riding gear such as leather jackets, long pants, boots and gloves. Helmets should have face shields to help prevent facial injuries.

To help avoid being involved in a collision, all riders should keep a safe distance between themselves and other vehicles on the roadway. Even though lane splitting is technically legal in the state of California, riders should only split lanes when it is safe to do so. Pulling up alongside cars that are about to turn or change lanes is not a good idea and caution should be used whenever motorcyclists are entering traffic from a private drive or at an intersection.

Riders should adapt their speed to reflect the flow of traffic and the conditions on the roadway. Slower speeds are necessary on wet surfaces and on roadways that have gravel or potholes. Last but not least, riders should not consume alcohol under any circumstances before operating a motorcycle.
