As a Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer and avid biking enthusiast this is a sober reminder of the perils bikers face on our roads today. Motorcycle riders are vulnerable to suffering injuries during a collision due to the lack of safeguards available. This fact holds true even in low speed collisions where a rider can suffer serious injuries when thrown from the bike. If you or a loved one endure a motorcycle accident injury, it is best to consult with a qualified personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal options.
