Orange County Motorcycle Accident Victims Deserve a Relentless Attorney
Orange County motorcycle accidents happen every day-in Tustin on the 55, in Fountain Valley on the 405, in Santa Ana on I-5, in Long Beach on the 710, on Anaheim Boulevard, the Costa Mesa Freeway and the Foothill Corridor. Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable, even with helmets and protective gear. When involved in auto or truck accidents, bikers can suffer traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones or deep scrapes. It doesn't take a major accident to kill a motorcyclist. Even in a rear-ender, anyone riding a motorcycle can be thrown off the motorbike and onto the road or crushed under the cab of a big rig. If a car side-swipes them, they can be dragged by the car or pushed into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision and almost certainly a wrongful death.
If you were in a motorcycle accident-even if you think you're "fine" and you walked away from the crash-call us now at (949) 757-0707. You may have internal organ injuries, a concussion or even a serious head injury. We can help make sure you get the medical and legal help you need.
We Can Pursue the Guilty Driver Who Caused Your Motorcycle Crash
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, there are nearly 5,000 motorcyclist deaths and close to 90,000 motorbike accident injuries each year in this country. The odds are against motorcyclists for many reasons and it rarely has anything to do with the unfair reputation they may have as being daredevils or somehow reckless on the road. Most motorcyclists are very careful, defensive drivers but they can easily become the victim of a car-motorbike collision. They are much smaller than cars, can be caught in a driver's blind-spot, a car or truck may have poor visibility due to small windows or missing mirrors, and some bikers wear black leather, making them hard to see at night.
