Motorcycle accidents often cause devastating injuries. One common type of motorcycle accident involves other vehicles’ blind spots – when a motorcyclist rides in these areas, it is very difficult for the driver to see the bike and its rider.
Drivers and motorcyclists alike must effectively check their blind spots to reduce the risk of blind spot accidents.
If you have been injured in a blind spot motorcycle accident or any other type of motorcycle crash, our Sacramento motorcycle accident attorneys are here to help you – request a free, no obligation consultation today and learn more about your legal rights.
A blind spot is an area around a vehicle that the driver cannot see in his or her mirrors. Because a driver has no direct line of sight into this area, he or she is unable to detect hazards within it, such as a motorcyclist.
Since you cannot see what is in these zones by checking mirrors, you need to know the additional steps required to make sure blind spot areas are clear before making traffic maneuvers.
Both motorists and motorcyclists should actively work to avoid blind spot accidents by taking certain actions whenever on the road.
