With the wonderful weather we have year-round here in Long Beach, it is not uncommon to see motorcyclists riding up and down the coastline, as well as throughout our city streets. As motorcyclists are required to share the road with other cars and trucks, there are numerous dangers that a motorcycle may face. For this reason extra caution and care must be taken by motorcyclists to help keep themselves and others out of harm’s way. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you are going to need an aggressive Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney fighting on your behalf.
Other drivers tend to be quick to lay blame on any motorcyclist involved in a motorcycle accident when in actual fact, motorcyclists are usually more aware of their surroundings than other drivers. A distracted driver who suddenly changes lanes without noticing the motorcyclist approaching could easily cause a rear-end accident. Any time a driver fails to signal a turn, he or she could be turning in front of a motorcyclist thus causing a serious crash. In some instances even a solo accident may be caused by a defective part or an omission in the manufacturing process rather than motorcyclist error, however proving liability is not always easily done.
Our firm has been representing accident victims and their families for over a decade. We understand that what may seem like a relatively minor accident to the driver of a car or truck could be capable of causing life-threatening injuries to a motorcyclist. Road rash and fractured bones are regularly seen in these types of accident, although if the impact is hard enough a motorcyclist could easily find him- or herself struggling to survive after suffering from a traumatic head injury or spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis.
