Escondido Motorcycle Accidents Attorney

Motorcycle accidents can potentially cause catastrophic injuries, to a greater extent than other motor vehicle crashes. Without the protective shell that a car or truck provides, motorcycle riders are extremely vulnerable to the worst kinds of injuries, those that often result in death or permanent disability. Victims of motorcycle accidents often incur staggering medical expenses as well as loss of employment and future earning ability, along with severe pain and suffering and inability to participate in many day-to-day activities. Injuries may include:

  • spinal cord damage
  • brain injuries
  • road burn
  • fractured bones
  • lacerations
  • scarring
  • neck injuries
  • back injuries
  • disc herniations
  • nerve damage
  • internal organ injuries
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other psychological damage
  • complex regional pain syndrome

If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident in or around Escondido or elsewhere in Southern California that was caused by someone else, you have the right to make a claim against that person or entity to recover compensation for your injuries. When you or someone you love has been sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident caused by another’s negligence, you can protect your right to a recovery by retaining an experienced lawyer to represent you.

Car Driver Negligence Causes a Majority of Motorcycle Accidents

Bikers are sometimes at fault when motorcycle accidents occur, but more often, accidents are caused by careless, distracted, or aggressive automobile drivers. Drivers of cars or trucks need to be aware that they’re sharing the road with smaller and less visible motorcycles. Accidents often happen when automobile drivers are not alert to the presence of motorcyclists when they make turns and change lanes. Unfortunately, it’s usually the motorcyclist who suffers the most serious in an accident. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that more than half of all motorcycle accidents resulting in fatalities involve another vehicle, and 42 percent of those crashes involve a car or truck turning left while a motorcycle is going straight, passing, or overtaking it.
