Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Drivers have a responsibility to keep a watchful eye out for motorcyclists. A number of accidents occur when drivers are distracted or when when they are speeding. Lane changes and left-turns can be deadly for motorcyclists. Cars tend to have large blind spots that motorcyclists can get obscured in. Drivers making left turns cause a number of collisions as well.
According to the California Vehicle Code, the driver of a vehicle intending to make a left turn shall yield the right of way to all oncoming vehicles that are close enough so as to pose a hazard. A victim of a motorcycle accident or their family may have the ability to file a claim for damages. You can have your claim investigated by a motorcycle accident attorney.
