Compensation shouldn't be a California dream after a bike crash

California and motorcycles go together like peanut butter and jelly, or prehistoric mammals and tar pits. There's spectacular terrain, scenic interstates, and excellent weather everywhere you look. What's not to love if you're a bike enthusiast?

Well, there are always the millions of motorists in cars and trucks clogging up the highways. Between 2004 and 2013, the number of licensed drivers in the state increased by almost 8 percent, although the population only went up by 4.3 percent during that same time. Thanks in part to the high volume of traffic the report of a fatal or injury collision occurs in California every three minutes and 17 seconds. 

Dodgers Metro Bus Makes Return On Opening Day

With the return of spring brings Baseball back into the hearts of fans nationwide. In Los Angeles, this means, "it's time for Dodger Baseball," as Vin Scully used to say. While the Dodgers may have started in New York, Los Angeles has been their home since 1958. Unfortunately, given the location and limited accessibility of Chavez Ravine, traffic to and from Dodger Stadium has traditionally been a nightmare for patrons of the great American past time. The lack of parking and public transit has limited pedestrian access and caused massive traffic jams in the minutes before opening pitch.

Are you familiar with how to bike safely at night?

Most people ride their bicycles during the daylight hours. There are also times, such as in the winter, when you may find yourself on your bike after the sun has set.

When the darkness sets in, it's important to change your approach. Doing so will improve your safety, helping you reduce the risk of an accident. Here are several tips to follow:

New Helmet To Keep Your Chill Ride Even Cooler

If you have been looking for a helmet that will not act as a portable sauna while riding, you may be in luck with this new development. Steve Feher, Los Angeles based inventor and entrepreneur, has worked on the breathability and flow of air dynamics ever since his first patent drawings at the age of the 11. The newly developed motorcycle helmet has two fans to provide air conditioning for the rider at the cost of an additional 4 ounces to the helmet weight. While this may seem more of a luxury than a safety improvement, the heat and discomfort of a sweaty helmet may be distracting for riders over the course of a long ride. Feher, a motorcycle enthusiast and rider himself stated, "It's more comfortable to ride with the air-conditioned helmet than it is to ride with no helmet at all." While this may be as bold a statement that can be made for a helmet, Feher stands by his new helmet design. 

Were you involved in a drunk driving accident?

Even if you are completely sober when operating a motor vehicle, you need to remember this: Other drivers could be drunk.

For this reason, there is always the chance that you could be involved in a drunk driving accident. Just the same as any other type of collision, the end result could be serious injuries as well as damage to your vehicle.

The consequences of a head-on motorcycle collision

Motorcycle accidents typically result in the injury of the individual who was on the bike, even in a low-speed impact. No matter the type of collision or severity of the impact between the motorcycle and a large vehicle, the bike will always receive the worst of the impact, potentially resulting in serious or fatal injuries for the biker and passengers.

There are multiple factors that make motorcycle accidents so dangerous, but the risk and danger of these kinds of incidents increase exponentially in a head-on collision. This type of accident often leads to death or debilitating injuries. If you were hurt in a head-on motorcycle accident in California or you lost a loved one, you do not have to face the aftermath alone.

Veterans Ride to Sturgis to Offer Relief for US Vets

While some may see motorcycles as simply another mode of transportation, many see the open road in a new a light when behind the handles of a bike. Indian Motorcycle, famed as America's first motorcycle company, and Champion Trikes and Sidecars will supply motorcycles and sidecars for veterans to enjoy the countryside as they exit Los Angeles and travel the open roads in a journey of bonding and comradery. The third annual "Veterans Ride to Sturgis" will take off on July 28 and last 9 days, giving veterans an opportunity to relax and use the ride as therapy.

Rough roads after losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident

The driver of a motor vehicle may run over items on a California road and not even realize it. For an instant, the driver may wonder what caused the car to bump, but as long as nothing changes with the smooth running of the vehicle, he or she may not give it another thought.

Motorcycle operators don’t have that luxury. Running over something in the road may mean disaster. If you recently lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you understand how devastating it can be for family and friends.

What type of surgery is used to treat a hip fracture?

If you suffer a hip fracture, such as in a bicycle accident, it's important to receive immediate medical attention. This is a serious injury that will not heal on its own, so you need to consult with an experienced medical professional.

Generally speaking, a hip fracture calls for some type of surgery. While this may not be something you want to go through, it's the best way to put yourself on the path to making a full recovery.

Symptoms of a broken foot or ankle

As a motorcyclist, you know that any slip-up on the road can seriously impact your life. For example, if you're involved in an accident with another vehicle, you could suffer a variety of injuries.

A broken foot or ankle is extremely common in any type of motorcycle accident. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that you don't have any protection between this part of your body and the road (and other vehicle).
