An Orange County Motorcycle Accident Attorney on Motorcycle Accidents
While many motorcyclists are devoted to riding and will attest that there is no experience quite like it, they are especially prone to serious injury when struck by other motorists. This is due in part, of course, to the fact that there is virtually nothing between the striking vehicle and the rider to protect him. However, another significant contributing factor is that other motorists simply don’t often even see the rider, so when they collide they have done nothing to slow down or avoid the accident. The result can mean long-term or lifelong injury, or even death.
Following an accident, the injured rider will find that insurance carriers may have different rules and procedures for motorcycle riders. This makes it especially important to work with an experienced Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer to advocate for your rights and get the damages you are entitled to.
How an Orange County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Help
Similar to other motorcycle accidents, liability for a motorcycle accident is determined according to the principles of negligence. Negligence is a term of art, and an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer can help explain exactly what needs to be proven:
- Carelessness. To prove negligence, an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer can explain that you typically must prove that another party was careless or negligent on the road.
- Causation. In addition, the negligent acts of other party must have caused your injuries. An Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer can tell you that this can be difficult to prove as there are usually many different variables that may contribute to an accident.
- Injuries. Finally, the negligent act must usually lead to some injury or harm.
