Due to their smaller size and fewer safety features, motorcyclists involved in a crash are often at greater risk for severe injury than their counterparts in passenger vehicles. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the carelessness of someone driving a car, truck, or SUV, veteran Oceanside attorney Zev Rubinstein can fight for the compensation you deserve.
Lack of attention to the road and surrounding vehicles can lead to devastating consequences for anybody involved in a collision. However, in many cases motorcycle accidents and the serious injuries that accompany them can be avoided if drivers in passenger vehicles would remember to use appropriate caution by sharing the road.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents stem from the reckless driving of other motorists, such as:
- Following too closely or otherwise not leaving enough space between their vehicle and a motorcycle
- Failing to pay adequate attention when turning left or changing lanes
- Not checking blind spots or misreading mirrors (motorcycles can appear farther away than they actually are when looking in the side-view)
- Blinding the rider at night by using high beams
If the driver of a passenger vehicle committed these or other careless acts and caused an accident, you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
