Motorcycle Head on Collisions
Motorcycle riders are often left in the unfortunate position of exposure to risks and elements that passenger car and commercial vehicle operators rarely face. The fact of the matter is, riders are taking their lives into their hands, percentage-wise, that is much greater than the dangers faced by the occupants of protected vehicles.
The trade-off for the rider is a feeling of liberty and excitement that goes unmatched by virtually any other four-wheeled conveyance. Besides immediately getting to the life-saving ER, a wounded rider must also have a lawyer on call. Being thrown from a bike requires planning ahead. Once in a coma, for example, it is left to the family.
This web page is designed to help a rider understand the real dangers of being hit head-on, and the necessity of knowing who to call as part of future planning in case of a catastrophic riding incident occurring later on down the road.

- Getting Legal Help After a Motorcycle Head-on-Crash
The deadly threat of a motorcycle head-on catastrophe is a real possibility for all riders of LA roads. The immediate aftermath of a wreck like this, typically sees a rider facing lengthy hospital stays, and a long road of physical therapy, possibly job re-training, or worse, a trip to the funeral parlor.
This is true irrespective of how fast the rider was traveling. Even a snails pace head-on crash sees the rider confronting another enclosed vehicle that is also traveling in the opposite direction, directly into cyclist.
- Recent Trends in Fatal Motorcycle Crashes.
"In 2005 there were 4,553 motorcycle rider fatalities, of which 2,021 (44%) were from single-vehicle crashes, and 2,532 (56%) were from multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes. Of the 2,532 deaths from multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes, 2,260 (89%) were from two-vehicle motorcycle crashes. More than 85% of the 2,260 motorcycle riders killed in two-vehicle crashes were in accidents involving passenger vehicles. Among the fatalities in two-vehicle crashes involving motorcycles and passenger vehicles, 98% of the fatalities were motorcycle riders, and only 2% of the deaths were passenger vehicle occupants."
In fact, as discussed, a large swatch of these cases involve loss of life, and serious brain injuries, if the rider even can make it out alive. Survivors left dealing with the grief, and financial strain of the loss of the breadwinner must hire a veteran advocate. In fact, they need a personal injury lawyer who can carry the day both inside and outside of the courtroom.
