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 motorcycle accident:

  • 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 another 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.

  • Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”
