Common Causes of Mishaps
Usually, motorcyclists should not be blamed for the mishaps that they experience, contrary to common belief. The courts in California realize this and, with the help of a good lawyer, will not automatically put the blame of the rider of the motorcycle. Statistically, the most common cause of such devastating accidents is inattention or distraction of the driver, meaning that other drivers often don’t see the motorcyclist. Here’s a look at some of the common reasons for a motorcycle accident:
- Road hazards
- Improper left-hand turns
- Alcohol or drug impairment, legally referred to as DUI
- Distraction when changing lanes
Debilitating injuries is often what happens when there’s a collision between a motorcycle and a much larger vehicle. There’s the potential for long term treatment and rehabilitative care as well as the chance of a permanent disability. The Braff Accident Attorneys can pursue fair and reasonable settlement in and out of court for you or a loved one that has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Menifee, Lakewood, Buena Park and Bell Gardens.
The reason why injuries on a motorcycle can be more catastrophic than those in a bigger vehicle is because of the lack of protection motorcycle riders have. A helmet offers limited protection and makes a motorcycle rider more susceptible to serious injuries during a collision. Common injuries experienced by motorcyclists in the Menifee, Lakewood, Buena Park and Bell Gardens area include:
- Permanent disfigurement
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bruises and fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
Other common injuries include facial fractures, road rash, broken bones and burns. Some injuries are minor and require limited time to recover. Other injuries are catastrophic and can jeopardize the financial future of the injured person. Other expenses like property damage, lost income and medical expenses can add up quickly.
