Motorcycle Accidents in West Covina

In 2016, deadly collisions involving motorcyclists throughout the state of California accounted for at least 15.1% of traffic-related fatalities. Like anywhere else in the state, motorcycle accidents in West Covina and all other areas around Los Angeles County often end with serious injuries or death. Motorcyclists are at an elevated risk because of their vulnerability, especially when a distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise inattentive party is involved. Within the Los Angeles area alone, motorcyclists are involved in approximately 3% of accidents, however, they account for around 15% of crash-related fatalities.

Abrupt motorcycle accidents routinely leave victims and their families with the immensely high costs of recovery. The expenses that follow not only the initial hospitalization of a victim but the continued medical care on top of lost income as well, can be terribly overwhelming. In many cases, injuries are severe enough to ensure that a victim has to go through many years of physical therapy and other costly treatments in order to feel as normal as possible.

In no way should the victim of another person’s actions be unfairly forced to cover the cost of their recovery. Negligent motorists show no regard for the wellbeing of others on the road, and there is no reason that such parties should escape culpability. Obtaining an aggressive and compassionate motorcycle accident attorney to go after the party or parties liable for your injuries is of the utmost significance.
