Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and to take action in order to prevent anyone from being seriously injured or killed. A number of accidents occur when drivers make unsafe lane changes and cause motorcyclists to lose control. It is legal in California for motorcyclists to split the lane on the freeway. Drivers should try to be aware of what’s going on and take appropriate measures to switch lanes only when it’s safe. Victims of motorcycle accidents have the ability to file a personal injury claim in order to recover damages.
