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:

  • Property damage or loss
  • 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.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • 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.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “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!”
