Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident

With Southern California’s relatively mild winters, motorcycle enthusiasts are able to ride year- round in and around the Long Beach area. While motorcycles are an exciting and efficient way to get from place to place, they also expose riders to an inherent risk of serious bodily injury. In fact, data published by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that there were in excess of 80,000 motorcyclists injured in traffic accidents in 2011 alone. When motorcyclists are injured by the negligence of another person, California tort law allows them to recover compensation for their injuries and other losses. In this case, the assistance of an experienced Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney can be extremely useful. At Jamal Injury Law P.C., we are here to ensure that motorcycle accident victims get the compensation they deserve after an accident occurs.

Common Causes of California Motorcycle Accidents

In order to recover damages after a motorcycle accident, victims must be able to establish that their accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. In the context of personal injury law, the term “negligence” refers to conduct that falls below the accepted standard of care which would be exercised by a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances. Some of the kinds of negligent conduct that often result in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective vehicle manufacture
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign
  • Failure to observe traffic signals
  • Ignoring poor weather conditions
  • Fatigued driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Poor road maintenance or design
  • Defective vehicle design

In California, you generally have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim, so be sure to discuss your accident with an experienced Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to start the process of recovering for your losses. In certain circumstances, the deadline to file suit can be less than two years and therefore it is imperative you consult with a lawyer immediately after an accident. In addition, many of these cases are complex and require legal knowledge to determine whether you have a case.

Common Injuries Sustained in California Motorcycle Accidents

At Jamal Injury Law P.C., we have worked with many motorcycle accident victims and have seen their impact firsthand. Motorcycle accidents are capable of causing extremely serious injuries, in no small part due to the fact that motorcyclists do not enjoy the protections of a vehicle body as other motorists do. Among the injuries commonly sustained in motorcycle accidents are:

  • Broken Bones
  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Sprains
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Burns

If you suffer from these injuries after an accident, it is in your best interest to discuss the circumstances with a motorcycle accident lawyer with experience in Long Beach. This is because injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident have the potential to result in serious economic and non-economic losses including medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life, among others. Discussing your case with an attorney is often the first step in ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.

Suli provided amazing service throughout my personal injury case. It was my first time going through this type of situation and I'm glad I found Suli to guide me through this entire ordeal.
