Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Not Just an Accident,
It is a Major Disruption in Your Life.
Motorcycle Accident Cases
A bike or motorcycle accident in Los Angeles can be extremely devastating, particularly when the crash leaves the biker or cyclist with permanent disabilities or wrongful death. Bikers and cyclists have little protection when colliding with a car or truck, even when wearing and using all the standard safety protocols.
It’s not only negligent drivers who pose a risk to bikers or cyclists, weather and road hazards like cracks, deformations, potholes also create a risk.
How to Increase Safety on a Motorcycle
California requires a driver or passenger of a motorcycle to wear a
motorcycle helmet while riding on a motorcycle and failure to wear one
may negatively affect your case. The best protection is provided by motorcycle helmets that meet the requirements of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 218. Look for the DOT symbol on the outside back of the helmet to see if your helmet meets the requirements.
Additionally, before your drive, always wear proper safety gear, including a high-quality jacket made from leather or denim and gloves that are abrasion-resistant. It is also recommended that you check for any issues with the following:
- Oil or gas leaks
- Fluid levels
- Signal indicators
- Hand and foot brakes
- Tire pressure and tire tread depth
A growing number of bikers and cyclists have installed a personal video camera on themselves or their helmet to use the video as evidence against the negligent driver, which has been helpful to prove fault.
