Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
All drivers must take measures in order to avoid hitting motorcyclists. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in accidents because they have a smaller profile. Many accidents happen because drivers are speeding. According to California Vehicle Code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.” Any person that is injured in a motorcycle accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
