Pursuing Economic & Noneconomic Compensation

At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we have assisted countless bikers with their motorcycle accident claims. Through our years of experience, we have come to understand the seriousness of motorcycle accidents as they often involve serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and broken bones. These injuries and accidents can have life-altering effects and impact one's quality of life. Let us help you recover the financial compensation you deserve at this time.

Victims of motorcycle accidents may have grounds to pursue damages for:

  • Cost of medical treatment
  • Emergency medical expenses

  • Loss of future income due to inability to work

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.

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

    Kathy B.

  • 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!”
