Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Bakersfield
The state of California rates in the top 15 when it comes to fatal motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accident-related deaths in the state made up more than 15% of all crash fatalities in 2016. In that very same year, almost 600 motorcyclists were killed, denoting an 11% rise from 2015, which saw just short of 500.

In worst-case scenarios, families lose an important source of income along with losing their loved one, which can impose even further financial burdening upon them.
