San Diego Motorcycle Intersection Accident Attorneys
Hurt in a Motorcycle Crash at an Intersection?
There are many methods of transportation available to adults, but none seem to embody the freedom and excitement that a motorcycle provides. But riding a motorcycle is not without its risks. Motorcyclists, particularly those who have been involved in a collision, recognize the unique hazards a rider may face and the severe devastation a motorcycle accident can cause when it occurs. Motorcycle accidents can certainly happen any place and at any time, but a motorcyclist is particularly vulnerable at an intersection.
Challenges You May Face after a San Diego Intersection Motorcycle Accident
An injured motorcyclist will likely face a number of challenges following a collision, and one of the most significant is recovery from physical injuries. A motorcycle accident may leave a person with a variety of serious injuries, such as bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, disfigurement, and brain injury, and the recovery from such injuries can be painful and lengthy. The financial stress one may have to handle is another serious post-accident obstacle as injuries will require medical care and treatment to heal, which can be costly, in addition to the costs of repairing damage to your property.
While these obstacles, along with any others, may seem overwhelming, compensation from the at-fault party can be of great help and can ensure you do not suffer financial repercussions as a result of the crash.

Motorcycle Crash Statistics
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), of the 1,639 fatal motorcycle accidents on non-interstate roads in 2005, 51 percent were intersection accidents. Intersection accidents are very common, but when a motorcycle is involved, the results can be extraordinarily devastating as a rider has virtually no protection from a larger motor vehicle in the event of a collision.
Despite the devastating repercussions after an intersection accident, motorcycle riders are not without recourse. Motorcyclists injured in an intersection accident can get assistance on the road to recovery from a knowledgeable San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer with the Jurewitz Law Group.
Causes of Intersection Accidents
An intersection can be a very dangerous place for a motorcyclist, and this may largely be due to other drivers not seeing the motorcycle, which may make a rider an unsuspecting target. A significant number of motorcycle intersection accidents occur because of a vehicle turning left in front of a motorcycle, which can be caused by another driver's failure to see the small motor vehicle. In addition, a motorcycle intersection accident can happen for a number of other reasons, including a driver running a red light, failing to obey a stop sign, and a failing to yield. As the negligence of another motorist is out of the control of a motorcyclist, riders should be extra cautious at intersections and keep a watchful eye out for surrounding traffic.
