[07-20-2020] San Bernardino, CA - One Man Injured After a Motorcycle Crash in VictorvilleAccording to the initial reports from local authorities, the accident occurred at around 1:08 p.m. at the intersection of San Miguel Drive and Jeraldo Drive. An SUV was attempting to make a U-turn at the intersection when it crashed into a red and white street bike for unclear reasons.

Motorcycle Crash Investigation is Underway

Local authorities are now attempting to determine the cause of the accident through the official investigation.

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, motorcycle riders are 16 times more at risk of injury and 35 times more at risk of facing fatal crashes in comparison to a passenger of a private vehicle. This is because motorcycle riders are less protected from the road’s dangers than a private car passenger. Motorcycle riders are also at risk of sustaining fatal injuries that could lead to paralysis and death.

All riders are required by law (in most states) to wear a helmet and are encouraged to dress appropriately during their motorcycles. It is proven that helmets are 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths. Distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws are just some of the common factors why motorcycle accidents occur.

When facing cases like this, it’s vital to have an experienced San Bernardino personal injury attorney specializing in motorcycle accidents to conducts an independent investigation. Attorneys can utilize their resources to re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain phone and texting records of the liable party.
