What Makes Motorcycle Accidents Different

Pursuing Compensation For A Variety Of Injuries

Our firm can represent clients who suffer from motorcycle accident injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Road rash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Fatal injuries

These injuries often require people to undergo extensive medical treatment, surgeries and physical therapy. In addition, injured people are often unable to return to their previous field of work. Wage loss, mounting medical bills and future medical bills can seem overwhelming. These factors are included in the settlement demand, ensuring that the needs of our injured clients are met well after the case has been settled.

Under California law, if you've been injured in a motorcycle collision that was caused by another person's negligence, you may be entitled to recover damages that include:

  • Medical costs
  • Property loss
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Despite the similarities with other types of traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents are worthy of particular consideration for several reasons.

The injuries incurred by motorcyclists are usually much more severe than those of car accident victims.

What Makes Motorcycle Accidents Different

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published a press release in September 2007 that says "Deaths from motorcycle crashes have more than doubled in the past 10 years — from 2,116 in 1997 to 4,810 in 2006 — an alarming trend." Another 88,000 people were injured in motorcycle crashes in 2006.

The reality is that motorcyclists are often injured by negligent car drivers. In most cases, the other vehicle violated the motorcyclist's right of way and caused the accident. In fact, motorcycle riders are approximately 25 times more likely to be killed in a road accident and are five times more likely to be injured than a person riding in a passenger vehicle.
