The dangers of owning a motorcycle are well-documented. Motorcycles do not offer bikers significant protection, especially when compared to other vehicles on the road, and are often overlooked by drivers. When a motorcycle does go down, bikers are 5 times as likely to be injured than drivers. Motorcyclists are also an eye-popping 2,500% more likely to suffer fatal injuries in an accident.

The circumstances of every motorcycle wreck is different, but every biker involved in a crash is at high risk for serious injuries. Without seat belts, air bags, or two-ton metal shell, it’s very easy for riders to be thrown from their bikes at high speeds. Serious injuries associated with motorcycle accidents in San Diego include:
These serious injuries can cause permanent problems, affecting all aspects of a crash victim’s life. Injuries can prevent motorcycle accident victims from working, resulting in lost wages and future employment problems. A reduction in qualify of life could also occur because of difficulty participating in favored activities.
When other vehicles on the road do not treat motorcyclists as a full-sized vehicle, accidents happen. Bikers know that many cars on the road flat out ignore their needs. Cars will frequently follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes, or make lane changes without checking their blind spots. All of these behaviors can lead to crashes.
A scarier reason that can lead to motorcycle crashes in San Diego is driver aggression. Normal motorcyclist behavior, including the legal practice of lane splitting or using the carpool lane, can trigger a rage in some drivers. Angry drivers may challenge motorcyclists, which can lead to devastating crashes.
