California’s scenic roads have attracted motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the world. The state itself is home to many motorcycle clubs. While California is inviting to motorcyclists, it is not necessarily safe. Many riders are hurt and killed in California through a variety of causes. Riders are often blamed for these accidents, and there is a perception that they are risk-takers and rule-breakers. Marysville motorcycle accident victims have to deal with these perception in court, and they need all the help they can get. Penney and Associates is ready to help.
The risk factors in a Marysville motorcycle accident
Despite the common belief that motorcyclists are responsible for their own accidents, we know that this is not always the case. In fact, other vehicles, and unpredictable road conditions are often the major factors. A common accident with other vehicles is lane changing, without signals, and without ‘seeing’ a motorcyclist even after they collide. And then there is the growing concern with drug and alcohol-impaired car drivers, truckers trying to stay awake after hours and hours on long shipping routes.
The greatest threat to a rider is the sheer lack of protection found on a motorcycle. Even with protective clothes and gear, it’s simply doesn’t compare to what a car or a truck have. All it takes is a second of carelessness, and these significantly larger vehicles can become a deadly wall for a motorcycle.
