Motorcycle Accidents Are Too Common
With Los Angeles’ congested traffic, many commuters choose to travel by motorcycle so they can avoid the worst of the waits. Motorcycles are also far more maneuverable than a car and very economical on gas. Their size is a great benefit—sometimes. Many drivers are only alert for other cars and trucks and fail to notice motorcyclists nearby. This can spell disaster for the rider who has very little protection. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for high-speed accidents to result in catastrophic injury or death.
Common injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents may include:
- Road Rash
- Broken Bones
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Head Wounds
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Amputations or loss of limb
- Wrongful Death
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Knowing common causes for motorcycle accidents can help you as a rider be aware of signs of danger on the road. That being said, accidents can still occur even if you are the most diligent of riders. In general, the most frequent cause is due to driver negligence. Here are some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Distracted Drivers
- Dangerous Weather
- Roadway Conditions
- Alcohol or Drug Use
- Mechanical Problems
- Left Turns
Focus on Your Recovery—We Can Handle Everything Else
Motorcycle accident victims may be permanently disabled, some to the point where they will require lifelong care. In some cases, many surgical procedures may be necessary, or ongoing nursing or rehabilitation required for best results. Concerns about the cost of treatment should not be a worry for the patient and their family.
When handling motorcycle accident cases, we go above and beyond by consulting with medical and life care planning experts for a prediction of future medical and therapy costs, vocational retraining, costs of medical equipment, and other projected expenses. We want to help you make sure all of your costs are covered, even if the insurance company doesn’t want to pay them.
