Fighting For Motorcycle Accident Victims in Southern California

Southern California has the perfect climate for motorcyclists, and it is a year-round activity for many Orange County residents. Sadly, many drivers on the freeways and streets fail to pay enough attention when changing lanes or performing other maneuvers, which causes serious motorcycle accidents. As motorcycle riders are almost completely unprotected, the injuries that result from these accidents are often serious and even fatal.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Common causes may include:

  • Driver Negligence: Many motorcycle accidents stem from the negligence of other drivers on the road. This can include distracted driving, failure to yield, or disregarding traffic signals.
  • Lane Splitting Incidents: Given the nature of California traffic, lane splitting is a common practice among motorcyclists. However, accidents can occur when other drivers are unaware or fail to yield to motorcycles navigating between lanes.
  • Hazardous Road Conditions: Poorly maintained roads, construction zones, and adverse weather conditions can significantly contribute to motorcycle accidents. Identifying these external factors is crucial in building a compelling case.
  • Defective Motorcycle Parts: In some instances, motorcycle accidents can be attributed to defective parts or manufacturing errors. Holding manufacturers accountable for these flaws is a complex process that requires legal expertise.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

When dealing with serious injuries, rightfully, most individuals and families are concerned with the health and recovery of the injured person. However, the legal aspects of the accident are very important. The claim made on your behalf can ensure that the injured person has the best medical care both now and in the future. Motorcycle accidents are often physically devastating, and there may be a need for long-term medical care or reconstructive surgery. At The Law Offices of Joseph M. Tosti, an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer can evaluate your case and help you determine what types of claims can be made.

In motorcycle accidents, there are often serious injuries, including the following:

  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis (quadriplegia and paraplegia)
  • Serious soft tissue injuries — bruising, abrasions
  • Diminished cognizant abilities
  • Knee, elbow, shoulder, or hand injuries

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

After a motorcycle accident, victims could be qualified for various types of damages to compensate for the physical, emotional, and financial toll they endure. These potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Motorcycle accidents often lead to very severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Compensation can cover hospital bills, surgeries, rehabilitation, medication, and other necessary medical expenses related to your accident.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: If your injuries stop you from working, you could be entitled to compensation for lost earnings. Additionally, if your earning capacity is permanently impacted, we pursue damages for future income loss, ensuring financial stability.
  • Pain and Suffering: The emotional and physical toll of a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. Compensation for pain and suffering strives to address the intangible hardships you endure, such as emotional distress, anxiety, and loss of enjoyment of your life.
  • Property Damage: Recovering damages for property damage is crucial to restoring your life to its pre-accident state. This includes compensation for motorcycle repair or replacement and any other personal property damaged in the accident.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: In the tragic occasion of a fatal motorcycle accident, we help families pursue wrongful death damages. This may include funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and financial support for dependents left behind.
