Orange County Motorcycle Accident FAQ

What is the first thing I should do if I am involved in a motorcycle accident?
You should always call 911 immediately after being involved in a motorcycle accident. A police agency will create a report and make a determination of who was at fault as well as contact emergency services if there are any accidents or injuries. If you or someone else involved in the accident has suffered injuries, you must seek medical attention immediately.

Do I need to exchange information with the other driver?
It is vital to exchange information with any other drivers involved in the accident. You should obtain their name, address, phone number, insurance company, agent, agent contact information and policy number. It is also recommended that you get the make and model of the vehicle, the license plate, and any identifying markers.

Should I contact witnesses to my motorcycle accident?
Witnesses could be vital to your case. They may have seen erratic or reckless driving by the other motorist prior to the accident or witnessed the cause of the accident. You should always get the names and numbers of any witnesses and try to get them to write down what they saw. The longer time that transpires between the incident and when a statement is needed means the less likely that the witness will remember everything.

Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?
If someone else was at fault for your motorcycle accident, then you should hire a qualified personal injury lawyer that can assist you with getting the compensation that you deserve. Failure to hire a skilled attorney could mean that you settle for less money than you deserve.

Should I speak with an insurance agent if I am involved in an accident?
If someone else was at fault for the accident that you were involved in, then you should contact a competent lawyer prior to speaking with the insurance agent and making any recorded statements that could be detrimental to your case.

What kind of damages will I be compensated for?
Generally, you can be compensated for any measurable damages if someone else is at fault for the accident. This means that all medical expenses should be covered. In addition to medical related expenses, you may be able to receive compensation for lost wages, expected future wages, rental vehicles, repairs to your vehicle and pain and suffering.

The best way to determine what damages you will receive in your motorcycle accident case is to contact an Orange County personal injury attorney.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • 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!”

  • 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 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.”

    V.O.

  • 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.”

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”
