MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Stockton Motorcycle Accident Attorney

A motorcycle accident is extremely dangerous because of the lack of protection the motorcycle drivers have.

A large number of motorcycle accidents will result in death or serious injury. There are inattentive and aggressive automobile drivers on our highways every day. Many of which are a threat to any person on a motorcycle. It is also extremely important to wear a helmet because most motorcycle accident injuries are the result of head injury.

Road accidents, including motorcycle accidents occur because of negligence. Motorcyclists are especially susceptible for being overlooked by other drivers because of their size. There are different laws regarding motorcycle accidents, so if involved in a motorcycle accident it is a good idea to contact a Stockton motorcycle accident attorney at the Sadiq Law Firm, P.C. A motorcycle accident attorney will be able to properly advise each individual, in addition to making sure that person’s rights are not violated.

It is very difficult to find out what happened after a motorcycle accident because there are many factors that could have played a role in contributing to the motorcycle accident. An individual does not always have the proper resources, like a motorcycle accident attorney, to investigate the motorcycle accident to determine the liable parties. Even in instances an individual has the proper resources to carry out a motorcycle accident investigation, a Stockton motorcycle accident attorney has the specialized knowledge of motorcycle accident law to effectively and successfully benefit the individual.

As a motorist or a passenger, here are some steps to become more aware of motorcyclists:

  • Respect the motorcyclist – Remember the motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the privileges of any vehicle on the roadway. Give the motorcyclist a full lane of travel.
  • Look out – Look for the motorcyclist on the highway, at intersections, when a motorcyclist may be making a left turn, and when a motorcyclist may be changing lanes. Clearly signal your intentions.
  • Anticipate a motorcyclist’s maneuver – Obstructions (debris, potholes, etc.) that you may ignore or not notice can be deadly for a motorcyclist. Predict evasive actions.
  • Allow plenty of space – Don’t follow a motorcycle too closely. Allow enough room for the motorcyclist to take evasive actions.

Motorcycle accident victims face medical bills, loss of wages, physical pain, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. If injuries are severe or permanent, families suffer economic loss, mental anguish and the loss of companionship in caring for an injured family member. In the event of death, families are torn apart without any warning.

Almost every single motorcycle accident ends up in injury so the damages experienced can be extensive. If you would like more motorcycle accident information contact us to confer with a motorcycle accident attorney.

Common Reason for Motorcycle Accidents

Most common reason of a motorcycle accident is due to other drivers not seeing motorcycles on the road. Motorcycle accidents continue to rise each year and approximately 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death. Visibility can be very difficult for other drivers on the road because they often do not expect to see and can easily overlook a motorcyclist that is approaching them. Smart motorcyclists take the necessary precautions by wearing appropriate gear and following safety rules, however, most accidents are often the fault of a careless automobile driver. Pot holes, bad roads and construction is also a big contributor to accidents.

If you have been in a motorcycle accident, consult an experienced attorney who can fight your negligence case for you. Comparative negligence is the theory that both parties involved in an accident are at fault and therefore, neither party should be allowed to be compensated for 100% of their damages. California personal injury law applies a “pure” comparative negligence standard. Meaning, if the injured victim is assigned 99% of the fault in the accident, the victim can still recover 1% of his or her damages from the other party. Comparative negligence in motorcycle accident cases are pretty tricky to understand. Consult an attorney who can help you get compensated for what you truly deserve.
