In most of the country, the New Year means colder weather. Not necessarily so in Southern California, where the weather is still allowing motorcyclists to hit the streets. That is why all motorcyclists need to remember motorcycle safety and beware of the dangers that can lead to a Southern California motorcycle accident.

The most dangerous situation for motorcyclists is when other cars and vehicles are making left-hand turns. As a matter of fact, these types of collisions account for nearly 42% of all accidents where a motorcycle and car collide.

To help prevent becoming seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you should be aware of the most common situations that lead to cars hitting motorcycles during left-hand turns. They often occur when the motorcyclist is:
 
  • Traveling straight through the intersection, as a car is making a left-hand turn
  • When passing a car
  • When the motorcycle is attempting to overtake a car

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, especially resulting from a car making a left-hand turn, you should speak to an experienced Riverside motorcycle accident attorney. Though, the vehicle making the left-hand turn is normally found at fault, proving it and negotiating with the insurance company can be difficult. An experienced attorney can help you build and win your case.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should contact one of our experienced Riverside motorcycle accident attorneys at Steinberg Injury Lawyers at (800) 989-6385.
