Long Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Southern California is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely motorcycle ride or to rely on a motorcycle to get around the city for work and errands. Motorcycles are easy to park, cheap to drive, and make it easy to navigate Long Beach's heavy traffic. However, motorcyclists face the risk of accidents and injuries when riding their bikes. Bikers do not have the protection offered by a car, truck, or SUV, so they are more likely to suffer severe or fatal injuries when an accident occurs.

The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) reports more than 100 severe motorcycle accidents in Long Beach each year, some of which lead to fatalities, with around 4,000 severe accidents throughout the county. If you have suffered injuries in a Long Beach motorcycle accident, you have the legal right to take legal action against the party who caused your accident and injuries. An experienced Long Beach motorcycle accident lawyer can help you seek justice and fight to potentially receive the maximum compensation possible for your injuries.

Statute of Limitations in Long Beach Motorcycle Accident Claims

If you have suffered injuries in a Long Beach motorcycle accident, you have limited time to take legal action against the driver or other entity responsible for the accident and your injuries. California courts must strictly adhere to these time limits, called statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in California, like motorcycle accident claims, is two years. This means you have two years from the date of the accident to bring a lawsuit against the party who caused it.

Failure to take action before the statute of limitations runs out means it’s unlikely you will be able to recover damages related to your Long Beach motorcycle accident. It’s in your best interest to speak with a Long Beach motorcycle accident lawyer immediately after an accident, so they can begin work on your case. It’s important that you meet all deadlines, but you also want to preserve the quality of evidence that supports your claim. As time goes by, witnesses die, move away, or their memory of the events becomes foggy. Additionally, it’s harder to find photo and video evidence of your motorcycle accident to support your case.

Types of Injuries in Long Beach Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accident injuries are often severe and victims must spend ample time healing. Examples of common motorcycle accident injuries that sometimes give rise to personal injury claims include:

Road Rash

Road rash injuries occur when a biker’s body slides across the pavement after falling from their bike during a crash. Leather and other protective motorcycle gear can reduce the severity of road rash, but bikers without gear risk fatal road rash injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries frequently occur in motorcycle accidents even when bikers wear a helmet. California’s mandatory helmet law helps reduce the frequency and severity of brain injuries. Yet, bikers with a brain injury sometimes face lifelong struggles related to permanent brain damage.

Back and Spine Injuries

Back and spinal cord injuries frequently occur in motorcycle accidents, especially when a biker gets thrown from their bike or gets pinned against the road or another vehicle.

Chest Injuries

Chest injuries typically happen when a biker has a head-on collision with another vehicle. The force of the crash pushes the front of the motorcycle into the biker’s chest, damaging the heart, lungs, chest wall, and other vital organs.

Crushed or Amputated Limbs

Crushed limbs occur most often in motorcycle accidents where the bike lands on the biker and pins them to the ground. In addition to messy fractures, crushed limbs lose blood flow to the rest of the body. If doctors cannot restore blood flow, they must amputate the limb to save a biker from dying from infection.

Your Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney can review the facts of your case, including your doctor’s notes about your injuries, to determine the monetary value to place on your claim.

Seeking Damages in Long Beach Motorcycle Accident Claims

If you bring a lawsuit against the negligent party responsible for your Long Beach motorcycle accident and injuries, you could receive compensation for economic and non-economic losses incurred because of the accident and your injuries. Every claim has different facts that add to or detract from its value and determine what type of damages apply. Below are some examples of damages commonly included in motorcycle accident claims:

  • Medical treatment costs, including ambulance transport, emergency room treatment, hospitalization, surgery, aftercare, prescriptions, and diagnostic imaging
  • Travel costs to and from the doctor or treating facility
  • Estimated future medical costs when a Long Beach motorcycle accident causes a severe injury or condition that requires ongoing care and treatment
  • Rehabilitation expenses, such as treatment with a physical therapist, occupational therapist, counselor, or other medical professionals that help injured people cope with the aftermath of their injuries
  • Lost income from time away from work because of the motorcycle accident, injuries, and healing
  • Lost earning capacity if a Long Beach motorcycle accident causes a catastrophic injury that prevents someone from working
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium with a spouse
  • Diminished quality of life

If a Long Beach motorcycle accident took the life of a loved one, you could be eligible to recover damages related to your loss. Your Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney can answer any questions you have about taking legal action after the death of a loved one.
