California has more than 800,000 registered motorcycles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in motorcycle related accidents in 2015.

Motorcyclists are more susceptible to serious injury in an accident because of the lack of protection a motorcycle affords. The serious nature of motorcycle injuries can range from broken bones to spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. These types of losses can often be long term and permanent in nature and require medical treatment long after a case is over. The National Traffic Highway Safety Administration statistics show that motorcyclists are more than 30 times more likely to die in a collision than an occupant of a car.

The cause of motorcycle accidents can vary greatly, from speeding drivers, unsafe lane changes, drunk drivers, unsafe roads, and more. In fact, more and more motorcycle accidents are happening where the vehicle colliding with the motorcycle did not even know that a motorcyclist was close to them.
