Motorcycle accidents can happen for various reasons and it is important to understand them.
Since the riders don’t have the same level of protection as a car driver has, they are more susceptible to incur severe injuries during a motorcycle crash.
Here is a list of common causes of motorcycle accidents:
Because motorcycles have a low profile compared to bigger vehicles like cars and trucks, they can be harder for drivers to see. If a driver isn’t paying attention to the vehicles surrounding them or is distracted, a motorcycle collision is more likely to happen.
Dangerous Road Conditions
Road hazards like potholes, gravel, uneven roads, and severe weather conditions like icy roads, snow, and heavy rain, can all be dangerous for motorcycle riders and cars.
Unsafe Lane Changes
When drivers make an unsafe lane change or don’t use the correct signal at the proper time before making a lane change, they increase the risk of collision with a motorcycle driver.
In California, motorcycle drivers are allowed to pass between cars - this is called lane splitting. This can also cause a motorcycle accident.
Driving above the speed limit can lead to high-impact motorcycle accidents. Because the impact of the collision is so strong, these types of accidents can lead to severe injury or death.
This happens when a driver doesn’t yield to a motorcycle before making a left turn. It is important that both car and motorcycle drivers are careful in these situations.
After a painful motorcycle accident, you might feel discouraged or too anxious to file a claim.
Moreover, having to pay expensive medical bills and recover from the accident can already be stressful enough.
At LA Attorneys, we want to relieve some of this stress and help you get the appropriate compensation to cover your damages.
We will fight fearlessly for your rights and help you negotiate and win a beneficial settlement.
After a detailed assessment of the accident, your skilled motorcycle accident lawyers will help you gather all the important documents to support your case.
Your lawyer will proactively engage with the other parties such as the insurance company.
We strongly recommend that you don’t engage in negotiations with insurance companies before speaking to your lawyer. He/she will be able to prepare you for negotiations and participate in them to advocate for your rights.
Once you build a strong case, your lawyer will help you file a motorcycle accident claim.
The state of California follows at-fault negligence laws . This means that the driver of the vehicle must be deemed at-fault for the motorcycle accident in order for you to file a claim and seek compensation.
Moreover, California also follows comparative negligence laws. In other words, the amount of compensation you can obtain will be reduced according to the percentage of your contribution to the accident.
For example, if you claimed $10,000 in damages, and the insurance company evaluates that you were 20% at fault, your compensation will be reduced to $18,000.
You can claim two types of compensation in a motorcycle accident:
Economic damages: This refers to compensation that will help you pay for the expenses that resulted from the motorcycle accident.
Economic compensation can cover your past and future medical bills, and/or the loss of ability to perform your job and earn a living wage.
Non-economic damages: This type of compensation covers emotional distress, physical impairment, disfigurement, and other non pecuniary damage that resulted from the motorcycle accident.
Non-economic damages can be harder to defend, but our skilled and reliable attorneys will put their expertise at work to advocate for your compensation.
At LA Attorneys , our motorcycle accident experts will thoroughly investigate the accident, gather all the necessary evidence, and build a strong defense case with you. With in-depth knowledge of motorcycle accident claims and with our expertise in negotiation, we will help you obtain the maximum settlement.
