MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Serving Injury Victims Across Orange County Including Riverside, Santa Ana and Anaheim, California

Motorcycles are prevalent throughout California and due to our year round temperate climate motorcyclists routinely explore the beaches of San Diego, up Pacific Coast Highway onto the majestic cliffs and parks of Northern California. Nonetheless, with so many motorcyclists on our roads, there are numerous hazards including adverse weather conditions, distracted motorists, speeding motorists and careless drivers. Motor vehicles travel quickly, weigh thousands of pounds and upon impact with a motorcycle the results could be fatal. Common injuries for motorcycle riders include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Broken bones
  • Road Rash
  • Disfigurement
  • Neck and Spinal Cord Injuries

CALIFORNIA LANE SPLITTING LAWS

In California, it is legal for motorcycle riders to go in between and share a lane with vehicles. This is referred to as lane splitting and California remains the only state in the nation that allows such. Many view lane splitting within our congested freeways and roads as extremely dangerous. Often, careless drivers who do not see motorcycles can cause major accidents and severely injury the motorcyclist. However, studies have shown that lane splitting is indeed safe if done responsibly and will actually reduce congestion on our roads.

CALIFORNIA MOTORCYCLE HELMET LAWS

California helmet laws are codified under California Vehicle Code Section 27803(a), which states “a driver and any passenger shall wear a safety helmet meeting requirements established pursuant to Section 27802 when riding on a motorcycle, motor-driven cycle, or motorized bicycle.” California helmet laws help reduce brain related injuries and head injuries caused by common motorcycle accidents.
