Orange County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Most bike riders are careful road users. However, much of the public and other drivers view them as thrill seekers who take unnecessary risks. This becomes challenging for motorcyclists, then, to be fairly compensated even when an accident is not their fault. Because motorbike crashes are more likely to result in fatalities, novice riders should exercise extra caution whether driving on urban or rural roads.

If you are involved in an accident, the best course of action is to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to handle every aspect of your case. An experienced legal representative, like those at Kash Legal, can investigate your accident, obtain crucial evidence supporting your claim, and seek relevant compensation.

How Can an Orange County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Help Your Case?

According to a report by the Insurance Information Institute, over 90,000 motorbike crashes lead to injuries annually. Unfortunately, investigating a motorbike-related accident is not always straightforward. As such, it’s best to partner with an experienced Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer to thoroughly analyze your case and determine if you have a valid legal right to file for damages. A detailed investigation may include the following:

  • Conducting an in-depth witness interview
  • Reviewing medical evidence related to your injuries
  • Analyzing surveillance footage of the accident, if available
  • Assessing the extent of the damage to your motorbike and other vehicles involved
  • Documenting the accident scene detailing the weather and road conditions, including the date and time of the accident

Determining if you have a lawful claim for compensation against the at-fault party is a critical step when lodging a motorcycle accident lawsuit. A few other ways that a personal injury lawyer can help your case include:

Provide Evidence of Vicarious and Product Liability

Another avenue a motorcycle accident lawyer may focus on during an accident investigation is possible third-party legal responsibility. For instance, if an Uber or Lyft driver collides with your bike while performing their job, you may hold the driver’s employer liable for the accident. Employers have what’s known as vicarious liability (financial responsibility) for their employees’ negligent actions.

Additionally, if your lawyer can prove that a motorcycle’s defective parts caused the accident that injured you, the bike’s manufacturer could face a lawsuit in a product liability claim. This type of personal injury case can help find a company legally responsible for the defective parts they’ve produced and distributed. 

Ascertain Traffic Infractions

Another way to demonstrate fault in a motorcycle crash is to prove that the other party violated road traffic rules to determine responsibility for an accident. Such violations include excessive speeding, making illegal turns, lane splitting, distracted driving, and operating a vehicle while intoxicated due to alcohol or drug use. Establishing traffic infractions is a job for law enforcement officers who respond to an accident scene.

Again, proving culpability at trial is based on the proof you present to support your accident claim. Crime scene photographs, police reports, forensics, and eyewitness statements go a long way toward establishing liability. 

Help You Pursue Favorable Compensation

Despite wearing protective riding gear, serious injuries are likely to occur, and healing is usually slow and arduous. There’s no doubt riding a motorcycle comes with certain risks.

Still, riders deserve the same duty of care accorded to other motorists, and when it is neglected, the outcome is often disastrous for victims of motorcycle accidents. If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, it’s wise to consult an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer to file for compensation. Possible legal damages you can pursue, include the following:

  • Medical Bills: This can include the costs of ongoing physical therapy and future medical attention you may require when recuperating from your injuries.
  • Lost Wages: If you’ve sustained grave physical injuries that will hinder your ability to earn a living, you may be awarded back wages for anticipated future income loss.
  • Pain and Suffering: These compensatory damages are awarded to help accident victims for the physical pain and mental distress caused by their injuries.
  • Property Damage: Also known as diminished value, this amount is calculated after an appraisal of your motorcycle is performed to indicate the current value based on its compromised condition.

Working with a skilled motorcycle accident attorney can help make sure that you receive the damages and compensation that you’re owed.
