Seeking Compensation for Your Losses

Injured victims of motorcycle accidents can seek compensation from the at-fault parties for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, permanent injury and emotional distress.

When an individual is killed in a motorcycle accident, his or her family members can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages as well. In the case of hit-and-run motorcycle accidents or collisions involving uninsured drivers, injured victims can seek compensation through the uninsured motorist clause of their auto insurance policies.

The knowledgeable Orange County Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Bisnar Chase have over 43 years of experience representing injured accident victims and their families. We know what it takes to fight insurance companies, corporations and other entities that make it challenging for our injured clients to seek the compensation they rightfully deserve.

Riding a motorcycle can be exhilarating and cost-effective. It offers commuters an easier way to make their way through Orange County’s congested freeways. However, riding a motorcycle also comes with significant risks. Motorcycles are smaller vehicles that are easier to overlook than cars, trucks or SUVs. They also provide very little protection to riders in the event of a crash. Even the most skilled Orange County riders can get seriously injured in a traffic collision.

Staying Safe on Motorcycles

Motorcycles are known to be extremely dangerous. It isn’t the motorcycle itself that is dangerous, but the factors surrounding the motorcycle.

A motorcycle rider can practice all of the following safety suggestions and still encounter hazards:

  • Proper Safety Gear: Helmet, protective clothing (padded jackets and pants), gloves, boots, eye safety, etc.
  • Motorcycle Condition: Ensuring all parts are functioning properly, lubricated, nothing hindering their movements or potentially creating a hazardous situation.
  • Road Ready: Turn signals, headlights, brake lights, no bulbs out, license plate, etc.

Making sure you’re taking every precaution towards safe motorcycle transportation is a must, for those around you, yourself, and your family.

Although being a safe motorcycle rider is always encouraged, it doesn’t always promise your safety on the road. The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by other vehicles causing the accident.

Cars pulling out in front of a motorcycle in motion, stopping abruptly, smashing into them, or mistakenly not seeing them due to their small profile and less significant sources of light can cause serious injury and death.

Orange County Motorcycle Accidents Statistics

Hundreds of motorcyclists are injured while riding in Orange County each year. According to California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 18 motorcyclists were killed and 796 were injured in Orange County accidents in one year alone.

  • Anaheim led all Orange County cities with 98 motorcycle injuries
  • Santa Ana with 67
  • Huntington Beach with 59
  • 7 fatalities and 38 injuries were reported as a result of motorcycle accidents in the unincorporated areas of Orange County

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents, like many other types of traffic accidents, can happen in a split second. It only takes a moment of distraction or inattention. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Failure to look for motorcyclists before changing lanes, turning left or entering traffic
  • Running a red light or stop sign at an intersection
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Exceeding the speed limit or driving at a speed that is unsafe for traffic, roadway or weather conditions
  • Driving while distracted
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Dangerous or defective roadways and poorly designed street intersections

What To Do If You Have Been Injured

Immediately following the accident, seek medical attention as soon as possible. This is not only important for your health and safety, but it allows a doctor or medical personal to legally document your injuries with details and date of occurrence. Later on down the line, if you do not have any medical documentation of injuries inflicted from the accident, they “never happened,” and can dramatically affect your case.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Bisnar Chase Google Review

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.
