Are California motorcycle accidents more expensive than car crashes?
For the most part, motorcycle crashes result in higher medical expenses and other costs than car accidents. The reason for this is that motorcyclists tend to suffer more serious injuries than motorists, because they have little protection in an accident. They are therefore vulnerable to catastrophic injuries that can take weeks, even months to recover from.
A motorcycle accident will frequently lead to multiple injuries, such as head trauma and back injuries. Many times, these injuries are permanent.
