Determining Liability in a Motorcycle Accident Case

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 compensation a victim receives, as well as from what sources 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.

It is an unfortunate truth, but many people are quick to pin the blame on motorcyclists after an accident. Many people believe that individuals who own motorcycles are aggressive, arrogant, and prone to dangerous driving tactics.

At Cohn & Swartzon, we know this isn't the case.

In many cases, it's the other motorists on the road who do not take the time to look out for motorcyclists. They can be careless about their blind spots, make reckless lane changes, and fail to keep other drivers in consideration. This behavior puts everyone on the road in danger.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, our attorneys at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. can help you assert your rights by offering you the dedicated representation you deserve. We won't let you be bullied by insurance companies.

Who Can I Sue for My Motorcycle Crash?

The cause of an accident will determine which party a victim can file a claim against.

For example, if another driver was speeding and caused a motorcycle accident, that driver would be held legally accountable for the accident. If a defective motorcycle part or tire blowout caused the accident, the manufacturer or distributor of that part may be held liable.

When you work with an Orange County motorcycle accident attorney at Cohn & Swartzon, we will help you understand your rights and explore all possible avenues of compensation in your case.

What to Do After a Serious Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you should take the following steps:

  • 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 crash was another motorist's fault, then you should be sure to get their insurance information and contact their insurance company to file a claim.

Contact Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. to Get Started

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 motorcycle accident lawyers with decades of experience and a long track record of success, 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!”

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

    Barbara M.

  • 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 am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
