LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the weather warm and the skies clear, spring in Southern California is the perfect season to get out on the open road. So it should come as no surprise that many Californians choose to do their traveling by motorcycle, where you can feel the wind in your hair and the sun at your back. As fun as motorcycle driving can be, though, anyone familiar with crash and injury statistics can tell you that motorcycle accidents are all too common, and their effects can be severe. That's why it is important to have an expert motorcycle accident lawyer like Cameron Y. Brock in your corner.
As the chief attorney at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc., Cameron Y. Brock has proven himself to be the ideal personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles for individuals who have suffered in motorcycle collisions. There are plenty of personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles, one of the largest metropolitan centers in the world, to choose from. However, Cameron Y. Brock is a motorcycle driver himself, and can claim the title of the personal injury attorney in Los Angeles whose firm maintains a 98% success rate over the course of over 5,000 personal injury cases. For those suffering from injuries sustained in a motorcycle-related accident, these facts provide much-needed solace at a time that is almost always filled with anxiety.
In recent years, growth in motorcycle sales and registrations in the U.S. has been accompanied by an increase in accidents, property losses, injuries and fatalities due to crashes. From 1997 to 2007, annual motorcyclist fatalities increased from 2,116 to 5,154, representing a staggering 144% increase, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Meanwhile, injuries for motorcyclists increased from 53,000 to 103,000, representing a 94% increase. While they frequently suffer the greatest injuries, in many cases, the drivers themselves are not at fault for an accident or collision.
