How insurance companies look at motorcycle riders after a collision in a city like Santa Monica,
for example, or any other city for that matter, is that the rider is to blame. Insurance companies
like to overlook the statistics data that shows most two wheeled vehicle collisions usually occur
due to a negligent car driver. Michael P. Ehline, Esq.,
wants to share this educational info and if you need more, call (213) 291-9080.
The motorcycle accidents statistics 2010 and 2011 stats both show that riders
were injured or killed with the highest number of crashes occurring at intersections and
driver’s failing to yield to the bikers right of way.
The motorcycle accidents pictures and videos that are seen in the news, are only part of the story,
because they do not show the amount of physical damage the rider suffers. When the crash is caused
by a passenger vehicle operator that is careless or does not yield to the biker’s right of
way, safety precautions mean little.
Riding and obeying
the traffic laws, the speed limits and riding defensively can help avoid some motorcycle crashes,
but not the one caused by the negligent driver.
When the motorcycle accident photos do not show the injuries that occurred because of a smash up
with a negligent driver, it means that it is time to have your rights to hold the negligent driver
This is done with an experienced attorney that has the litigation
skills to not only hold the negligent party accountable, but also hold their insurance company
responsible. Having the representation of a motorcycle law
firm will mean that every element of the insurance claim is investigated in order to
prepare a case that will win the compensation the injured rider should recover.
This is important, since these types of injuries can be severe and include traumatic brain injuries,
back and spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, internal injuries, broken or fracture bones, gashes,
scrapes and cuts.
This can mean lengthy medical care that will be required and not being able
to work, which can put a financial strain on the injured rider and their family. Holding the
negligent driver responsible and recovering compensation can help the injured victim begin to heal.
Not all lawyers personal injury Firms have the necessary experience in motorcycle accidents,
which is why it is important to have the experienced motorcycle accident attorney that understands
how this type of crashes occur and that the rider can be following all of the traffic laws, speed
limit and wearing a helmet and other protective gear and still be severely injured.
