Motorcycle Accident Information for Los Angeles Clients
Motorcycles are an enjoyable, economical, and practical method of transportation. Riders also enjoy freedoms unique to motorcycles — the open air, wide-open visual access to the surrounding environment, and greater maneuverability, just to name a few. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents result in thousands of senseless injuries and deaths every year. Even the most experienced riders are at the mercy of other motorists, and motorcycle accident victims often experience the most severe types of injuries as compared to other motor vehicle accidents. Sadly, motorcycle riders are five times more like to be injured, and 26 times more likely to die, in an accident compared to drivers or passengers of other motor vehicles.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, or if you have lost a family member in a fatal motorcycle accident, please call our Los Angeles firm at (310) 683-2300 today.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in California
- Lack of Visibility: Motorcycles are, of course, smaller than other motor vehicles. Because of this, motorcyclists are smaller visual targets and more likely to be missed by other drivers. Many drivers have difficultly anticipating, seeing and avoiding motorcyclists on the road. This leads to additional danger at intersections, where 70 percent of vehicle versus motorcycle accidents happen.
- Driver Inexperience or Negligence: The problems of limited visibility compound when other drivers are inexperienced or ignorant about how to share the road safely with motorcyclists. In two-thirds of motorcycle accidents involving other motor vehicles, the driver of the vehicle violated the motorcyclist’s right of way.
If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, we can help.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accident victims may be entitled to compensation for various damages. These can include recovery of medical expenses and the cost to repair or replace the bike. Additionally, victims may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering as well as past and future lost wages due to the accident.
Motorcycle accident attorney Scott J. Corwin has been representing injured motorcyclists since 1992. He has represented more than 3,000 injured victims. Mr. Corwin has recovered more than $125 million for his clients.
