Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in accidents due to their small profile. A number of these collisions take place when one driver makes an unsafe lane change. 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.” Victims of motorcycle accidents will typically have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
