Motorcycle Accidents in Orange, CA
Motorcycle riders are susceptible to serious injuries when an accident occurs, whether it takes place on one of California’s highways or streets. Bikes are less protected than most other vehicles on the road. If other drivers are not paying attention properly, severe problems can result. For example, if a motorist fails to check their mirrors when changing lanes or turning, there is the potential for devastating injuries to occur.
If you, a family member, or another loved one was hurt in a motorcycle accident, finding reliable legal guidance is important. California law regarding accidents provides for only a limited period of time wherein an injured person can file for damages. If the injured party fails to take the appropriate legal action within the legal timeframe, they may no longer be entitled to compensation for their injuries and related expenses. There are also some notable differences in how a motorcycle accident case should be handled as opposed to how a car accident case should be handled. Finding a lawyer who is experienced in motorcycle accidents will protect your interests, and Orange Attorney Martinez has a thorough understanding of what is needed to maximize an injured client’s compensation.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries & Damages
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident and have been injured, get medical attention immediately. When possible, the following items are also helpful to perform while you are at the scene where the accident took place:
- Inform the police of the accident so they can assess things and fill out a report.
- Take photos (cell phone pictures work) of the other vehicle’s license plate as well as the other driver’s license and insurance information.
- Take photos and video of the scene of the accident.
- Contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer.
It usually takes a fair amount of time for a motorcycle rider to recover from severe injuries, and much can be involved in their treatment. The law allows for many types of compensation to be awarded according to what injuries were inflicted and certain related detail:
Lost Wages: Reimbursement for income lost due to being unable to work.
Medical Expenses: Cost of needed current and future rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and medical care.
Property Damage: Expenses related to repair of the motorcycle (if applicable), vehicle rental, diminution in value, and loss of use.
Monetary Damages: Compensation for loss of consortium and pain & suffering as well as for loss of companionship and loss of society.
Punitive Damages: Some cases will include specific conditions where intentional or reckless behavior of the other driver can be proven, and this may mean that additional damages, of a punitive nature, can be awarded.
