Motorcycle AccidentDon’t Pay the Price for someone else’s Negligence!  Those who ride motorcycles face a much higher chance of injury than the drivers of cars. While an accident between two automobiles rarely results in serious injury, the same can’t be said for motorcycle accidents.  Even the slightest impact from another vehicle or small obstruction on the road can easily lead to life-altering injuries for a motorcycle rider.  In fact, more than 80% of all reported motorcycle accidents result in injury or death to the rider.  What casts these statistics in an even darker light is the fact that over half of all motorcycle accidents are caused by the driver of another vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, you shouldn’t be suffering in pain, paying expensive medical bills, and losing money due to being away from work. The party at fault needs to be held accountable for your losses and forced to pay restitution. But, don’t expect the liable party’s insurance company to simply write you a check.  They don’t care about your physical and financial dilemma – they’re in the business of making money.  Don’t let their greed cheat you out of the compensation you deserve.  For 10 years, The Shirvanian Law Firm has been protecting the rights of motorcyclists, ensuring they don’t get taken advantage of by the insurance industry.  Get the expert legal advise and medical treatment you need by calling The Shirvanian Law Firm today at (818) 835-5396 or (877) 809-4223 for a new obligation, FREE telephone consultation and get all your questions answered at no cost to you until we win your case.

A few of the most common causes contributing to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Inattention
  • Talking on the cell phone
  • Breaking traffic laws
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Failing to check blind spots or while changing lanes

Why Motorcycle Accidents are more Serious

Motorcycle accidents tend to be more serious (and therefore more expensive) due to the riders exposure to the elements such as the road, the vehicle, other vehicles, objects on the road, etc. They also mean much longer rehabilitation periods, and greater the chances that the victim may not have a full recovery. According to a comprehensive insurance industry survey, the following facts were found to be true:

  • 23% of motorcycle claimants have injuries in multiple locations.
  • 18% suffer head injuries, including closed head injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and minor traumatic brain injury (MTBI) with permanent disability.
  • 10% of claimants have injuries to the back or spine, a frequent cause of paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Who Can Be Held Liable for My Motorcycle Accident?

Over half of all motorcycle accidents are caused by the driver of another vehicle. This is mainly due to the fact that motorcycles are smaller than passenger vehicles, making them harder to see.  Most motorcycle accidents are the result of the motorcycle not being seen and a larger vehicle making a left turn in front of it, or changing lanes into the riders path. This problem is only multiplied by the growing epidemic of distracted drivers on the road today.

In addition to negligent drivers of other vehicles, the following parties may be held liable for your motorcycle accident, if certain factors contributed to the crash:

  • The entity that designed the roadway
  • The municipality responsible for maintaining the roadway
  • The manufacturer of the motorcycle, if its design or construction caused your injury
  • The designer and manufacturer of a part of the motorcycle, such as the tires or brakes
  • A mechanic or garage that did flawed or improper maintenance on the motorcycle
  • The manufacturer of the other vehicle or a part from another vehicle, if the design or manufacturing flaw of that part was the cause of your injury.  An example might be defective tires on a car that didn’t allow the car to stop in a reasonable amount of time, causing it to crash into you

Compensation from a Motorcycle Accident

Because motorcycle accidents almost always involve serious injuries, the compensation you’ll need to put your life back together will be significant. Motorcycle accident victims often require multiple surgeries, and extensive time in the hospital as well as time away from work.  In addition to all that, a motorcycle accident can leave you with permanent injuries that will impact your way of life and your ability to earn a living.  All of these losses are worthy of compensation from the liable party or parties and the insurance companies that represent them. While they have a moral obligation to pay you for the losses they’re responsible for, that doesn’t mean they will just write you a check. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and they will try everything they can to low-ball motorcycle accident victims to pay them as little as possible.

This is why you need to contact The Shirvanian Law Firm to get expert legal representation as well as the expert medical treatment you need to give you the greatest chance for a full recovery.  There is no-obligation when you call.  The consultation is Free, and we do not get paid, unless you win your case.  Don’t delay, call today… (877) 809-4223.
