Trust An Attorney Who Will Fight For You
While most people ride their motorcycle as a carefree past time, it is important to be safe. Unfortunately, accidents sometimes happen and the results can be catastrophic. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, it is critical to talk to an attorney who understands California’s complex personal injury laws. The Law Offices of Robert Wallenstein has been fighting for the rights of injured clients for over 30 years.
Lane Splitting, While Legal, Can Cause Accidents
Lane splitting is when a motorcycle drives between rows of stopped or moving vehicles, and it can happen on highways or roads. Some states have outlawed it – but California has not. While it is perfectly legal for you to do this, other drivers are often not aware of motorcyclists doing so. This, among other things, can cause serious accidents. Common types of injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful death
State law requires all motorcyclists in California to wear a helmet. You must also have an M-1 driver’s license endorsement, which indicates that you have completed a skills test or passed a training course. These safety precautions can ensure that riders are ready to enjoy the freedom of the road. Sadly, we cannot control those around us.
