Oxnard Motorcycle Crash - Helping Injured Victims

A driver and passenger were critically injured after a motorcycle accident on November 13th in Oxnard. The VC Star reports that the crash occurred in Oxnard on Highway 101 after the driver, who was carrying a passenger, hit a curb. The driver was severely injured and the passenger was ejected from the vehicle and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

These types of accidents put drivers and their passengers at greater risk while on the road. We cannot overemphasize the importance of being an alert driver. A motorcycle crash can often lead to much worse than injury – it can lead to death. Motorcyclists don’t have the protection of a hefty metal frame surrounding them. It doesn’t take long for accidents to occur; one second can change your life forever, especially if you are riding a motorcycle.

Motorcycle riders tend to suffer more serious injuries including head injuries, disfigurement, fractures, spinal cord injuries, and road rash. These types of injuries can affect a person’s life greatly, which is why it is crucial to be alert and stay safe at all times. It can be difficult to practice safe driving when most motorcycle accidents are caused by someone else’s mistakes. Motorcycles are difficult for some drivers to spot. Even though advanced automobile technology has implemented blind-spot sensors to alert drivers when someone is near their car, motorcycles pass by vehicles so fast that it can often be too late for drivers or advanced sensors to recognize them.

Make sure to leave ample space for motorcycles whether you are on an open highway or stuck in rush hour traffic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 4,500 motorcyclists were killed in traffic crashes. The numbers are dreadful and so are the bills that follow. How can you be expected to pay for medical bills and deal with the daily pain and suffering resulting from the accident? This is where Crane Flores, LLP comes in.
