California is one of the U.S. states with the highest number of motorcycles. Motorcycles offer a flexible travel method that may help avoid being stuck in heavy traffic. However, this mode of transport has its set of issues, particularly in the event of a traffic collision.
Motorcyclists are vulnerable to other cars while riding. In the event of an accident, a motorcyclist can potentially suffer serious injuries that can lead to disability, disfigurement, or even death. Motorcycle accident injuries are often serious or life-threatening due to the imbalance in size and weight of a motorcycle versus a typical car, SUV, or large truck. The smaller vehicle, the motorcycle, typically acquires more damage, and the rider is virtually unprotected. Even with a safety helmet and protective gear, motorcyclists could sustain severe injuries.
