Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, but some causes are more common than others. Being aware of these causes can help you avoid potential accidents and stay safe on the road. Here are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Driver negligence, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, or speeding
- Unsafe road conditions, such as potholes, gravel, or uneven surfaces
- Vehicle defects or malfunctions, such as faulty brakes or tires
- Weather conditions, such as rain, snow, or fog
- Inexperienced or unlicensed riders
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, our Thousand Oaks motorcycle accident attorney can help you determine the cause and hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries and damages.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries due to the lack of protection provided by a motorcycle compared to a car. Understanding the types of injuries that can occur can help you seek the proper medical treatment and legal representation. Our Thousand Oaks motorcycle accident attorneys have experience handling cases involving the following types of injuries:
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Road rash
- Burn injuries
- Internal injuries
Not only can these injuries result in physical pain and suffering, but they can also lead to significant medical expenses, lost wages, and long-term disability. Our personal injury team is here to help you seek the compensation you deserve to cover these damages and help you move forward after a motorcycle accident.
What To Do After A Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents are known to be amongst the most dangerous road accidents, due to high-speed and lack of collision protection. If you got in a motorcycle, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer who can help you understand your legal options.
After a motorcycle accident, we advise the following:
- Remove yourself from the roadway in order to get to safety and avoid potential danger.
- Wait to remove your helmet and other gear. This is important because when you have been hit, your body may be in shock and the adrenaline may be preventing you from feeling your injuries.
- Call 911 as soon as you are in safety and report the accident. Police may appear with paramedics depending on the severity of the accident.
- Seek medical attention to ensure that you don't have any serious injuries.
- Gather as much evidence of the accident as possible, whether that is through pictures, note-taking, or obtaining a copy of the police report.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer and your insurance company. The sooner you do this, the better. A qualified motorcycle accident lawyer can help you tremendously with your insurance settlement.
If you had a motorcycle accident, our trusted lawyers at Delitala are here to help.
California Motorcycle Helmet Law
Motorcycle helmets are required while riding in California. There is a universal helmet law in California which means that no matter how old you are or what your experience level is, you must wear a helmet while riding. If you don't wear one, you can be fined up to $250 and/or have a year of probation.
Additionally, if you get into an accident while riding without a helmet, your ability to recover compensation could be adversely affected.
