Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo Motorcycle Accident Attorney Proudly Serving All Of Orange County
Motorcyclists who are involved in auto accidents are significantly more likely to be seriously injured or killed than passenger vehicle drivers. Motorcyclists need to be extra careful on the road since they are more vulnerable to serious injury and dangerous auto collisions than other vehicles on the road. Even with good motorcycle equipment, serious injuries are possible. The severe, debilitating and permanent injuries that arise from motorcycle accidents with automobiles and trucks result in significant financial losses to the individuals involved and their families.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012, 4,957 motorcyclists were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes, an increase of 7 percent from the 4,630 motorcyclists killed in 2011. There were 93,000 motorcyclists injured during 2012, a 15 percent increase from 81,000 in 2011.
In 2012, 2,624 of all motorcycles (52%) involved in fatal crashes collided with another type of motor vehicle in transport. In two-vehicle crashes, 75 percent of the motorcycles involved in motor vehicle traffic crashes collided with the vehicles in the front of them. Only 7 percent were struck in the rear.
We represent motorcyclists who have been injured in motorcycle accidents.
Because the injuries our clients sustain are so often severe, we take care in providing the level of legal representation that truly makes a difference in their ability to recover full financial compensation for medical bills and all the losses or injuries associated with their accident. Injuries from a motorcycle accident are often severe and may include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Head trauma
- Brain damage
- Facial injuries
- Road rash from contact with the pavement
- Dismemberment or amputation
- Damage to internal organs
- Internal bleeding
- Severe lacerations and contusions
Many serious motorcycle injury victims will never walk again, work again, or enjoy the same life activities they did before the accident. A California personal injury claim for damages seeks to compensate for the financial burdens and emotional effects of a motorcycle crash caused by the negligence of others. You can collect for:
- Lost income
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Inability to function as a whole person
- Disfigurement, deformity and permanent injury
At Banner Attorneys, we will negotiate firmly with the other driver’s insurance company for the full and fair compensation you deserve. If a reasonable settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys will take the case to a jury.
We prepare every case with the possibility of a trial. We send investigators to gather photos, videos and witness statements at the accident scene. We hire experts to reconstruct the accident and determine future financial needs.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, there are several things that you must do to ensure that you preserve your claim against the other driver. Those things include:
- Contact the police so that they can begin the process of documenting what happened at the accident scene as soon as possible.
