Hurt in a Motorcycle Accident?
A Proven Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
Despite their popularity and prevalence on the road, motorcycles are often marginalized, forgotten, or mistreated by other drivers. These actions can mean serious injury to motorcyclists who do not have the luxury of many safety features. Motorcycle accidents caused by negligent drivers can be life-threatening and always call appropriate legal action against those responsible.
At The Accident Injury Law Center, their experienced Orange County personal injury attorneys understand the biases that motorcyclists often face when seeking legal action against a driver. Motorcycles are still wrongly considered “dangerous” and “unruly” and motorcyclists are often blamed for their own injury. TAILC knows how to effectively assert the facts surrounding a motorcycle accident and ensure that an accurate account of the responsible party’s actions is properly depicted both in and outside the courtroom.
How Negligent Drivers Cause Motorcycle Accidents
Motorists are always obligated to be vigilant on the road, but too often they forget to look for other travelers besides other cars and trucks. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists are often missed, forgotten, or even intentionally disregarded by motorists
Motorcycle accidents often occur due to the following motorist actions:
- Tailgating (following too closely)
- Failing to signal a turn or lane change
- Drunk (or drugged) driving
- Disobeying traffic lights and signs
- Distracted driving (texting, phones, etc.)
If you believe that any of these factors contributed to your motorcycle accident, then it is time to speak with legal counsel. At TAILC, motorcycle accident victims can rest assured that the circumstances of their crash will be soberly presented and that any assertion or deflection of fault will be thoroughly countered.
