Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles

Experienced Representation Following Serious Injuries

Motorcycle riders experience both joys and threats not met by most other motorists. They are able to enjoy the freedom that a bike brings, but they are also exposed to a variety of dangers that car and truck drivers rarely worry about.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 80 percent of motorcycle accidents cause injuries or death. In 2017, approximately 5,100 motorcycle crashes resulted in fatalities and more than 89,000 resulted in injuries according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Severe head and brain trauma is the leading cause of fatal motorcycle accidents and serious injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered this type of crash in Southern California and don’t believe it was your fault, you might want to consult with a motorcycle accident attorney in Los Angeles.

What Should I Do After A Motorcycle Accident in Los Angeles?

Do:

  • Collect evidence & info. Get photos of the accident and injuries (mobile phone photos are fine). Get names and insurance info from all drivers involved. Obtain contact info from any witnesses.
  • Call your insurance company. Reporting the accident to your insurance agent is extremely important to your case.
  • Get legal help. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal options.
  • Obtain medical care. If you or a loved one was hurt, make sure to get proper medical treatment right away.

Do not:

  • Panic. Being in an accident is a horrible experience, but help is available. Take a deep breath and focus on completing the DO items.
  • Talk openly at the scene. Be careful about what you say. It is possible to damage your case by making a statement like, “I’m fine” or “I’m OK.”
  • Talk to neighbors about the case. Insurance investigators are trained to look for discrepancies in a story. Their job is to deny or minimize your claim.
  • Leave an accident scene. Unless there is a medical emergency, collect information if you are able, and wait for police to arrive.

Where Do Motorcycle Accident Injuries Occur Most Frequently?

Accidents involving motorcycles frequently happen:

  • On freeways. Tens of thousands of cycles are on our interstates at any given time.
  • Making lane changes. California law allows motorcycles to move between lanes in heavy traffic. But other vehicles often refuse to yield right of way. Cycles get caught between vehicles and serious injuries occur.
  • At intersections. Making a left-hand turn in Los Angeles is an adventure night or day. Either the turning vehicle or the oncoming vehicle may be at fault. After you are injured during one of these perilous moments, you need to hire astute, experienced representation.

In 2019, being hit by an Uber driver or colliding with a Lyft vehicle is increasingly likely due to rideshare cars’ prevalence on the road.

Don’t be ground down by a prejudicial legal system. Los Angeles motorcycle cycle accident lawyer Scott J. Corwin protects the rights of injured cyclists throughout the Southern California. Designated as a member of The National Trial Lawyers Association, Scott Corwin seeks maximum compensation for injuries and wrongful deaths on the highway.

How Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?

Many motorcycle injuries can be chalked up to inattention and distraction. Common causes include:

  • Drivers who are speeding or driving recklessly
  • Distracted driving involving the use of a phone or mobile device (like texting or using mobile apps), looking for an address, grooming, eating, or adjusting music
  • Motorists not obeying stop signs, yield signs, or traffic signals
  • Intoxication and impairment involving alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs

In some situations, the party at fault is not an individual driver. The liable party may be a municipality that failed to keep a street or road safe. Or it may be the manufacturer of a motorcycle part that failed at a pivotal moment.

Seeking Full Compensation for Motorcycle Injuries

During a motorcycle accident, the rider’s body is susceptible to many types of serious injuries:

  • Amputation injuries: Amputation can involve the loss of an arm, leg, hand, or digit during the accident itself or as a necessary surgical operation as a result of the injury.
  • Head and brain injuries: Impact to the head can result in traumatic brain injury (TBI), concussion, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other serious problems.
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: This category can include spinal compression fractures, broken vertebra, paraplegia or quadriplegia, neck injuries, cervical and lumbar herniations, disc injuries, nerve damage, whiplash injuries, and more.
  • Burn injuries: Collision-related explosions and fires can easily result in life-changing burns on body parts.
  • Broken bones: Bone fractures may be categorized as simple, complex, comminuted, or avulsion. Common types of breaks affect arms, hands, legs, feet, ribs, and other areas.
  • Soft tissue injuries: A motorcycle accident can cause significant injury to internal organs and body structures. These injuries may not be visible at first.
  • Abrasions and lacerations: Cuts, scrapes, and lacerations can occur from contact with glass, roads, and other objects and surfaces.
