Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The question of what caused a motorcycle accident will play an important
role in a related personal injury or
wrongful death claim. It may affect the amount of financial compensation a victim may receive,
as well as from what resources this compensation can be sought out. Below
are some common causes that your lawyer may explore in relation to your
Driver negligence: a distracted driver, a drunk driver, or a motorist who was speeding, driving
recklessly or otherwise violating traffic laws, such as pulling in the
path of a rider.
Faulty road construction: a poorly designed or maintained highway, intersection or city street may
cause a hazardous situation that results in a motorcycle accident.
Poor weather conditions: weather conditions like heavy rain, hail, strong winds, or snow and ice
on the roadway can all cause a motorcycle accident to occur.
Equipment failure: a defective motorcycle part or other equipment failure may lead to an accident,
such as a brake, chain, tire, frame or steering failure.
The cause of an accident will determine what party a victim can file a
personal injury claim against. For example, if another driver was speeding and caused
a motorcycle accident in this way, that driver would be held legally accountable
for the accident. If a defective motorcycle part or tire blowout caused
the accident, however, the manufacturer or distributor of that part may
be held liable.
What to Do After a Serious Motorcycle Accident
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, there are specific actions
you can take to help ensure that you do not have a negative impact on
the outcome of your case:
- Remain at the scene of the accident.
- Offer medical assistance to anyone in need.
- Exchange driver and insurance information with the other driver involved.
- Take pictures at the scene and get the information of any witnesses present.
- Be sure that you seek medical attention.
- Do not talk to the other driver's insurance company, even if they contact you.
- Do not discuss who was at fault with law enforcement.
- Contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Should you contact your insurance company after an accident? It depends
on whose fault the accident was. If the accident was your fault, you must
give the other motorist your insurance information and they will contact
your insurance company. If the motorcycle accident was another motorist's
fault, then you should be sure to get their insurance information and
contact their insurance to file a claim.
Don't go through this process alone. Insurance companies will try to pay individuals the least amount of money
possible to settle their case quickly. Many times, the initial amount
offered does not cover unexpected costs, such as follow up doctor appointments,
latent medical conditions, or future lost wages. As Orange County injury
lawyers, we will pursue the most amount of compensation available for
you. We will not settle.
