As a matter of fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that in 2006 there were as many as 65,000 skateboard injuries to children under the age of fifteen. Many of those injuries involved accidents with motorized vehicles.
Fortunately, there are many safety tips that skateboarders can adopt to help keep them safe in the event they are involved in a Southern California car accident. For instance, all skateboarders should make sure they wear a protective helmet. A collision with a car can result in a serious head injury, since a skateboarder is in danger of having their head collide with the pavement. A protective helmet can help protect them from a serious head injury.
Also, all skateboarders should be cautious of the riding surface they are skating on. Many skateboard accidents are a result of uneven pavement and rocks. A sudden fall can result in a skateboarder entering the roadway and possibly being struck by a car.
