Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Other drivers on the road can often become aggressive or distracted, becoming a danger to all other vehicles– motorcycles most specifically. Changing lanes unexpectedly, texting while driving and tailgating are all examples of what can cause terrible if not fatal motorcycle accidents. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a motorcycle accident, you know just how serious they can be. The lawyers at Esposito Law will stand up for you against the insurance companies who are not interested in your recovery but rather a quick settlement of your claim.

If you were recently in a motorcycle accident in Southern California, there are some very important first steps to take. First, contact and wait for law enforcement officers to investigate the accident. It is also very important to thoroughly document the scene by taking pictures and exchanging insurance information with any and all other parties involved. Upon leaving the scene of the accident, you must immediately seek medical treatment for any injuries. It is also recommended to consistently document your treatment and recovery over time. Lastly, do not discuss and provide a recorded statement to anyone before speaking with a reputable attorney.

At Esposito Law, we have the experience and resources to help clients in Southern California get the compensation you deserve. We help our clients in many ways including but not limited to:

  • Locate all the insurance coverage and identify all defendants
  • Deal with the insurance company so you do not have to
  • Gather documentation such as police reports, medical records, and lost wage information
  • Stay apprised of your medical care and document all your damages
  • Build your case to show why the defendant was at fault
  • Advise you and provide thoughtful recommendations so you can make informed decisions about your case

The most common types of motorcycle accidents our lawyers handle involve motor vehicle drivers who commit acts of negligence. Often, drivers make careless and reckless choices that cause these crashes such as driving while drunk or while distracted by texting or talking on a cell phone. If a car driver who was engaged in any of these acts caused your motorcycle crash, you would have the right to bring a claim for compensation. Other types of negligence include:

  • Fail to yield the right of way to motorcyclists
  • Try to share a lane with a motorcycle
  • Follow motorcycle riders too closely, or “tailgate”
  • Fail to check their mirrors and blind spots for motorcycles
  • Make turns or change lanes without using signals

No law requires you to hire a lawyer after a motorcycle accident. However, if you do not get legal help, you may miss out on a much better result in your case. Give us a call today to discuss your case.
