MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS: What are some common "blind spots" when it comes to a motorcycle accident that you see in your San Diego California injury law practice?

I have seen numerous "blind spot factual patterns" that have contributed to a California motorcycle accident over the years in my San Diego motorcycle injury law practice. Most often, a motorcycle, bicycle or scooter is going straight and a car makes a right or left turn straight into the bike due to inattention. In a recent statistic, about half (50%) of all car vs. motorcycle or bicycle collisions, the view of the motorcycle or bicycle is obstructed by glare (light reflection from sun) or a door roof pillar in the car or by blind spots in the car driver’s field of view. Thus, a blind spot can be created by a glare or bright reflection.  Blind spots can be a real problem especially in busy neighborhoods or streets.  Other common accidents include u-turns, rear-end accidents, intersection accidents, and lane-change accidents.
