Riding a motorcycle is more difficult than driving a car because of the fact that you are only on two wheels and have nothing to protect you in case of an accident. Riding a motorcycle becomes even more difficult when you have to deal with adverse conditions, such as heavy rain.
Back in 2007 a San Bernardino woman sued the County of San Bernardino when she was injured in a motorcycle accident and sustained major head and neck injuries - after heavy rains.
Bad weather may have led to her motorcycle accident. She blamed the accident on dangerous road conditions. At the time of the accident heavy rains had washed out part of the road, leaving a dangerous trench. The crash occurred before road crews were able to make repairs.
A fact to remember: When it is raining, you have much less traction when you are riding on roadways that are covered with water. Reports indicate that you have only two tires to make contact with the road and your motorcycle weighs much less than an average automobile, giving you less pressure on the tires to make contact with the road.
An accident involving a motorcycle usually results in a severe injury and sometimes death. If you have suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you seek medical attention and the legal advice of an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will explain the process, what you are facing and your next steps in moving forward.
