Motorcyclists face extra dangers on the road when compared to the drivers of other vehicles. Smaller in size and without much protection, bikers are sometimes overlooked, leading to collisions. When motorcyclists are involved in a crash, they are five times more likely to be injured than the drivers of other vehicles. Worse, bikers are 26 times more likely to be killed in a crash.

Every accident is different, but when a bike goes down, the motorcyclist is at risk for serious, life-changing injuries. Motorcycles do not have many safety features that drivers take for granted, such as seat belts, air bags, and two tons of metal. Bikers can easily be thrown from their rides in crashes. Some serious injuries associated with San Jose motorcycle accidents include:
Catastrophic injuries can lead to permanent health problems, affecting victims’ quality of life. They can lead to missed time at work, lost wages, and problems finding employment. The injuries may make it nearly impossible to enjoy activities or do simple tasks around the home. All of these life changes are compensatory.
The vast majority of cars and trucks on the road follow the rules of the road properly. These drivers travel at safe speeds, check their blind spots, use their blinkers, etc. Unfortunately, it only takes one vehicle to make an unsafe lane change, to follow to closely, or to merge blindly before tragedy strikes.
Aggressive driving and road rage can also lead to a motorcycle crash. Lane splitting is legal in California, but some drivers are either unaware of the law or disagree with it. These drivers may make aggressive moves into the path of motorcyclists, putting everyone at risk of injury.
