Lancaster Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle enthusiasts take every opportunity they can to go for a joyride on their bikes, and some rely on their motorcycles as their main form of transportation. It's easier to park motorcycles, they use less gas, and they make it easy to navigate the traffic in Lancaster and throughout the Antelope Valley. Yet, bikers risk accidents and injuries every time they go for a ride because they do not have the same protection they would if they were riding in a passenger vehicle.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), dozens of severe motorcycle crashes leading to injury or fatality occur in Lancaster each year, with close to 4,000 severe motorcycle crashes throughout the county. If you have sustained injuries in a Lancaster motorcycle accident, California law permits you to sue the party who caused the accident for damages related to the motorcycle accident and your injuries. An experienced Lancaster motorcycle accident lawyer can help you through the claims process and advocate for you to receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Time Limits in Lancaster Motorcycle Accident Claims

Each state has time limits, referred to as statutes of limitations, for victims of negligence to take legal action against someone who harms them. In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including motorcycle accident claims, is two years. Motorcycle accident victims have two years from the date of their accident to bring a lawsuit against the motorist or other party responsible for the accident and your injuries.

If you miss the statute of limitations deadline for your Lancaster motorcycle accident claim, it’s doubtful a court will hear your case. Some situations might warrant an exception, but this is only in rare circumstances. For example, if the party you are suing left the state to avoid getting sued, but returns later, the court might pause the statute of limitations time clock. Your Lancaster motorcycle accident attorney can review your case to make sure you meet all deadlines and don’t miss the chance to recover damages for your motorcycle accident injuries.

Common Injuries in Lancaster Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accident victims face severe and sometimes fatal injuries because of the open nature of riding. Many who suffer injuries must spend weeks or months healing, and they sometimes never fully recover from their motorcycle accident injuries. Examples of common types of injuries in motorcycle accidents include:

Road Rash

Road rash is a general term that refers to the wounds and lacerations a biker experiences when their body slides across the ground after a crash ejects them from their bike. Proper riding gear can lessen road rash injuries, but those who don’t wear protection face life-threatening wounds that might get infected.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are common occurrences in motorcycle crashes, even when bikers and their passengers wear helmets. The state’s mandatory helmet law helps prevent brain injuries and reduce their severity. However, bikers who suffer a traumatic brain injury can still face chronic issues because of permanent brain damage during a motorcycle crash.

Back and Spine Injuries

Back and spinal cord injuries are among the most dangerous injuries bikers face in Lancaster motorcycle accidents. Back injuries can lead to chronic, lifelong pain, and spinal cord injuries often lead to paralysis in some or all of the body.

Chest Injuries

Chest injuries most often occur when a motorcycle crash is a head-on collision. The impact of the accident thrusts the front of the motorcycle into the biker’s chest, damaging vital organs, including the lungs, chest cavity wall, the heart, and more.

Amputations

Amputations in motorcycle accidents are typically a result of a crushed limb injury that occurs when a biker gets pinned under his bike. Doctors who cannot restore blood flow to the limb have to make the difficult decision to amputate so infection does not spread through the body.

Your Lancaster motorcycle accident lawyer can evaluate your claim and your injuries to accurately value your claim.

Compensation in Lancaster Motorcycle Accident Claims

If you sue the driver or other party that caused your Lancaster motorcycle crash and injuries, you might receive compensation for damages related to your accident and injuries. Each case has underlying facts that impact its value and the type of damages a victim can collect. Examples of economic and non-economic losses that make up damages in motorcycle accident claims include costs for:

  • Medical treatment, including ambulance transport, emergency room services, hospitalization, surgery, doctor visits, x-rays, prescriptions, and travel to and from the doctor or treating facility
  • Estimated future medical treatment when a Lancaster motorcycle accident causes a permanent injury that requires continuous treatment
  • Rehabilitation with physical therapists, occupational therapists, mental health professionals, and others that help injured people deal with the emotional and physical consequences of their injuries
  • Lost wages from missing work
  • Future lost wages when a Lancaster motorcycle accident leads to a catastrophic injury that prevents someone from working
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

If you lost a loved one in a Lancaster motorcycle accident, you might be eligible to recover damages depending on your relationship with the deceased. Your Lancaster motorcycle accident attorney can answer questions about seeking compensation after the death of a family member.
