Left-turn accidents are what motorcyclists fear most

One of the scariest occurrences that motorcyclists hope will never happen to them is for a motorist to make a left turn out in front of them. When this occurs, it often results in fatal consequences. There are proactive measures that motorcyclists can take to avoid these types of crashes, though.

Those with uninsured motorist coverage can pay medical bills

California law requires that all motorists maintain auto liability insurance. Despite this, many do not maintain this necessary coverage. This is why many motorists take out added uninsured (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage.

Motorists' eyes often lead them to crash into motorcycles, bikes

Oftentimes, when a driver strikes a motorcyclist, one of the first comments that the motorist will make when questioned by police about what occurred is that they didn't see the biker before crashing into them. If you're wondering how this could be possible, then there are some valid explanations.

Youtube star "grateful to be here" after Motorcycle Accident

Ethan Dolan from the popular YouTube channel, Dolan Twins, was involved in a motorcycle accident. While Ethan has explained that he is "completely fine," he was hospitalized over the weekend of August 4. Following the accident, Ethan tweeted, "Not riding again, don't worry I'm very much over it." The Dolan Twins have 6.1 million subscribers and Ethan has more than 7 million followers on Instagram. In a photo his brother tweeted out, Ethan appeared to have minor bruising and large cut on his left hand.

Motorcycle helmets may only prevent certain types of injuries

As a child, you probably remember your parents telling you to put a helmet on before you took off on your bike. They likely told you that in hopes that it would protect you from a brain or head injury if you were involved in a crash. If it was important enough for you to wear it to go biking on city streets, then it's just as important for a motorcyclist to wear one when driving at tiptop speeds on California's freeways.

George Clooney Okay After Motorcycle Injury In Italy

Academy Award winner, George Clooney was released from Olbia Hospital in Italy following a motorcycle injury that launched him from his bike. In the collision, Clooney crashed through a windshield and cracked his helmet. While the paramedics did perform first aid for non-life threatening injuries, Clooney was taken to the local hospital for further evaluation. Clooney had a previous motorcycle accident in 2007 in which he suffered a broken rib while his girlfriend at the time, Sarah Larson, broke her foot. 

Certain motorcycle helmet features can save your life

In some jurisdictions, motorcyclists may not be required to wear helmets when they take to the road. While many states and municipalities may not require the use of a helmet, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) suggests that bikers who wear one may just be able to save their lives if they're involved in a crash.

The man who caused a serious Norwalk motorcycle crash is named

The 55-year-old Norwalk man, who is suspected of having caused a hit-and-run motorcycle crash just before 6 a.m., on Tuesday, May 29, has been identified. The incident, which occurred nearby the intersection of Pioneer Boulevard and the 5 Freeway in Norwalk, left the struck motorcyclists with undisclosed critical injuries.

What are ways that you can avoid an interstate crash?

Although most of us might think that divided highways are perhaps the most crash prone areas, they're not. Despite having heavy congestion and motorists driving at high speeds while constantly changing lanes to pass slower drivers, they tend to be the one place where the least number of crashes occur. 

What features do some of the safest motorcycle helmets have?

Most everyone has heard about motorcycle helmets being capable of saving lives. Many may assume that just any helmet you can buy at the store will do. Not all are created equal though. Instead, only those that are listed as meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 218 are deemed to be safe enough to truly protect you from harm.
