Vroom And Doom: Risks And Tips For Motorcyclists

California is home to more than 1.2 million licensed motorcyclists and many more car and truck drivers. With so many motorists on the road, it is important for everyone to drive safely. Motorcycle users must be especially cautious because of their increased exposure to injury and the dangers other drivers present, such as when a car turns in front of a motorcyclist.

Unfortunately, accidents are common and the number of victims killed or injured in motorcycle-involved collisions has been rising for the past 10 years in California. According to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic-records system, 586 motorcyclists were killed and another 13,252 were injured in motorcycle crashes throughout the state in 2008.

Motorcyclists in the Bay Area can take the following steps to enjoy a safer ride:

  • Complete a motorcycle rider-training course.
  • Never ride without a certified motorcycle helmet and eye protection.
  • Wear protective boots, gloves and other protective clothing.
  • Wear bright, visible colors on the upper body.
  • Be especially alert at intersections and driveways.
  • Use the headlights day and night.
  • Maintain a safe speed and distance from cars or hazards on the road.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by another driver while riding a motorcycle, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to hold the responsible party accountable.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye & Fitting on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!

I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry

Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.
