At Nadrich & Cohen LLP, we are passionate about motorcycles, and about motorcycle safety, so when the State of California unveils a new campaign to improve biker safety, we take notice. One such campaign was recently announced by the California Highway Patrol. The CHP is launching a year-long educational campaign in the hopes of reducing the number of collisions involving motorcycles.
The streets can be dangerous, and one Bakersfield motorcyclist recently learned it the hard way. Bakersfield Now is reporting that Daniel Joseph Ryel, 19, suffered major injuries when his Suzuki motorcycle was hit by an oncoming motorist near the corner of Fairfax Road and Avondale Drive in Bakersfield.
Because of their smaller size, motorcyclists are more vulnerable to injuries or death stemming from a collision with another motor vehicle. Wearing the proper safety gear can potentially help you to avoid a serious or life-threatening injury if you're involved in a motorcycle accident.
When a motorcycle accident occurs, it's important that you know what to do if you've been injured because of someone else's negligence. Following these steps after a motorcycle accident in Sacramento can ensure that your rights are protected.
Riding a motorcycle is an extremely popular past time but it can also be extremely dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 25 times more likely to be killed in an accident versus other motorists. If you frequently driver along California's roadways, it's important that you be aware of motorcyclists in order to avoid a potentially fatal collision.
