California Motorcycle Accident Lawyers; Hollywood often depicts motorcycle accidents as dramatic high speed collisions. However, in real life, many tragic CA motorcycle accidents occur at low speeds. Unlike drivers of cars, trucks, and SUVS, motorcyclists have very little physical protection against injury in a California motorcycle accident. When forced to stop or swerve suddenly to avoid an accident, it can be difficult for experienced motorcyclists to maintain control of their bike, and unfortunately, even at low speeds, CA motorcyclists can be ejected from their motorcycle. Serious injuries can occur when a biker hits the pavement, another vehicle, or other object, and tragic outcomes to low speed California motorcycle accidents include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, or even death.
A recent serious LA motorcycle accident involved a celebrity biker traveling at only 35 miles per hour. Canadian producer, Daniel Lanois, suffered severe injuries in a Los Angeles motorcycle accident in early June. According to CTV News in Canada, the motorcycle accident occurred when Lanois swerved to avoid hitting another driver who suddenly turned in front of him. As a result, his motorcycle hit a static box on the sidewalk. Lanois spent several weeks in the intensive-care unit of a Los Angeles hospital for his injuries, which included multiple broken bones and internal bleeding.
