Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles are far smaller than cars and are therefore more likely to be overlooked. A number of crashes occur when vehicles are changing lanes and fail to notice a motorcyclist approaching from behind. According to California Vehicle Code 22107, “No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course or move right or left upon a roadway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety and then only after the giving of an appropriate signal in the manner provided in this chapter in the event any other vehicle may be affected by the movement.”
Any person that is injured in a motorcycle accident may have the ability to recover damages through a bodily injury claim. It’s important to make sure that victim’s seek out eyewitnesses and that they seek medical treatment following an accident. A car accident attorney can help guide you through what steps need to be taken following an accident.
