Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Driver’s have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and take steps to avoid accidents. Unfortunately, a number of motorcyclists are seriously injured every year. According to the California Vehicle Code 21801, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety.” Victims of motorcycle accidents have the ability to recover damages by filing a personal injury claim.
