Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Although we are motorcycle accident lawyers, we are, first and foremost, motorcycle riders. If you or a loved one are injured in a motorcycle accident in Bakersfield (or anywhere else) we are here to help you. But we mean it when we say that we hope you never need us. To keep our clients and readers informed and to promote motorcycle safety awareness, we publish information on motorcycle laws and motorcycle safety
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle accident fatalities in California have increased in recent years. The NHTSA claims that this increase is due more motorcycles on the road, bigger engines, older riders, unlicensed riders, and riding while intoxicated, among other things. As motorcycle accident lawyers and motorcyclists who travel highways and roads in California nearly every day, we think the NHTSA ignored the biggest reason for motorcycle accidents: careless drivers. In many cases, the police officer investigating the accident simply assumes that the motorcyclist was at fault, without any basis, because of anti-motorcycle bias.
Bakersfield has a rich history with motorcycles and is home to a great many bikers. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting (and in many cases, representing) many riders and club members from Bakersfield. We are constantly updating this site to provide our readers and clients with the most up-to-date information on all motorcycle-related things in Bakersfield and Kern County. If you have any questions or would like to contribute information for our site, please contact us.
