Pasadena Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Have You Been Seriously Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle riding is very popular in California. Though they cost less to fuel and maintain than automobiles, motorcycles pose a much higher safety risk. Recent statistics by the National Transportation Safety Board state that in a one year period there were about 5,300 deaths resulting from motorcycle accidents in this country.
Even if a helmet is worn, motorcyclists have very little protection when they ride, and the injuries sustained are very often serious, even catastrophic.
