Injured on a Motorcycle When Car Pulled in Front of You

Were you injured on a motorcycle when a car pulled out in front of you?  This is one of the most common accidents involving motorcyclists in Orange County.  In most cases, the driver of the car claims they never saw the motorcycle coming, and when they pull out or turn in front of the path of the motorcyclist they leave nowhere to go.  In some cases the biker will attempt to lay down the bike to avoid impact, resulting in broken bones, severe road rash and burns.  When there is not enough time to avoid the collision, the accident may result in severe head injury, a broken back or neck, and other severe injuries. When a serious injury occurs, it may be necessary to create a “Life Care Plan” to ensure that the present and future medical needs and care of the injured victim are taken care of.  These cases

Motorcycle accident in Newport Beach Injures Two Victims

In a motorcycle accident in Newport Beach Tuesday morning of this passed week, two people were seriously injured in a vehicle accident involving a motorcycle and a car. The accident occurred at the intersection of Harbor View Drive and MacArthur Boulevard. The motorcycle rider and his passenger were badly injured as a result of the collision and were hospitalized at a local area hospital for their injuries.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident in Costa Mesa

A fatal motorcycle accident in Costa Mesa yesterday occurred at the intersection of Sunflower Avenue and Susan Street.  The motorcycle and an SUV came into contact in the intersection, and the motorcyclist has unfortunately lost his life.  The motorcycle was literally torn in two by the force of the accident.  The fatal incident happened just before 8am during the morning rush hour. Intersections are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists.  Drivers of larger vehicles often do not see the biker, and will turn into the path of the motorcycle leaving no time to avoid impact.  These accidents often happen at speed resulting in serious injuries, even though California motorcyclists are required to wear helmets and most wear body armor.  These accidents often result in traumatic brain injury, back and spine injuries and permanent damage resulting in paralysis.  When a fatal accident occurs the family is left in complete shock.

Motor Cycle Accident in Newport Beach Seriously Injures Two

A man and woman were seriously injured and hospitalized on June 1 in a motor cycle accident in Newport Beach when the motorcycle they were riding struck an automobile that was making a turn. The accident occurred in the city of Newport Beach in Orange County at the intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Harbor View Drive. The occupants of the motorcycle were thrown from their motorcycle and sustained seriously injuries. They were transported to local area hospitals for treatment of their serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Law enforcement accident investigators have not determined the cause of the accident yet. Unfortunate motorcycle accidents like this are a firm reminder on the dangers of driving, and the importance of proper automobile and motorcycle safety. The most important safety rule is to always wear a safety-belt at all times. As a motorcyclist, it is equally important to always wear proper safety gear including helmets,

SoCalGas Pickup Truck Hits Hawthorne Motorcyclist Causing Severe Injury

A SoCalGas pickup truck ran into the back of a motorcyclist a week ago in Hawthorne dragging him under the truck for more than 400 feet.  Horrified witnesses and other drivers attempted to stop the pickup truck driver who acted as if he wasn’t aware he had hit the motorcyclist.  The pickup truck paused for 20 to 25 seconds, and then proceeded to turn left dragging the motorcyclist and his bike beneath the truck until onlookers surrounded the vehicle forcing it to stop. The 30 year old Air Force Captain from the Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo who was driving the motorcycle suffered severe injury to his leg and other unspecified injuries.  He was immediately transported to County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where the doctors were making ever effort to save his leg.  The driver of the SoCalGas pickup truck was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run and released

Motorcycle Injuries in Mission Viejo

What should you do about recovering for motorcycle injuries in Mission Viejo or Orange County California?  Have you been injured while riding a motorcycle or as a passenger?  Motorcyclists and their passengers are at a significant disadvantage when a car pulls out in front of them or changes lanes unexpectedly.  The force of a moving vehicle compared to the human body (even a rider wearing kevlar and a helmet) will often result in serious and in some cases life threatening injuries for a biker and his or her passenger. Common injuries include severe fractures of limbs, shoulders and hips.  Fractured ribs can puncture internal organs resulting in damage to the lungs or spleen.  When the vertebrae in the neck or spine are fractured the spinal cord may be damaged resulting in permanent injury including paralysis.  In these cases the Law Firm of Rivers Morrell works with financial experts and economists

Injured on a Motorcycle When a Car Pulls Out In Front of You

Southern California provides a lot of advantages to those who ride a motorcycle.  It can also be quite dangerous due to the high number of vehicles traveling our roads and parking lots.  What should you do when you are injured on a motorcycle when a car pulls out in front of you?  Motorists often are not aware of the cyclists with which they share the road, and often do not see you on your motorcycle when they are pulling out from a parking lot or side street.  Side impact car accidents are one of the most common risks for Southern California and Orange County motorcyclists.  Unfortunately these motorcycle accidents happen so quickly there is no where to go and the resulting serious injuries can be life changing.  You will need an experienced and proven Mission Viejo motorcycle accident attorney to stand up for your interests and ensure the best possible

Mission Viejo Motorcycle Injury Claim

Why do you need an experienced and proven attorney to handle your Mission Viejo motorcycle injury claim or litigation?  Is there any difference between injury attorneys in Mission Viejo?  What do you need to know about choosing a personal injury attorney? After more than 40 years of experience in filing a Mission Viejo motorcycle injury claim or lawsuit I can tell you motorcycle riders and their passengers need an attorney as much or more than any other injury accident victim.  Insurance companies (and many juries) believe motorcyclists are risky drivers who speed, weave in and out of vehicles and ultimately share much or all of the responsibility for any resulting accident.  While statistics from the California Highway Patrol may support this in some cases, I have found it is simply untrue in most cases involving the injury of a passenger or a motorcyclist. Cars change lanes without looking.  They often
