Establishing fault in a Mission Viejo motorcycle accident can be a challenging legal issue. Riding a motorcycle in California can be a great time, but, unfortunately, motorcyclists need to be aware of the fact that any motorcycle accident which might occur will present significant challenges, from medical issues to legal issues.
If a motorcyclist is injured in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver, the injured motorcyclist and their passenger (if any) should pursue financial compensation by contacting the Law Firm of Rivers Morrell and filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Successful personal injury claims and lawsuits must prove that it was, in fact, the other driver who caused the accident.
Establishing fault in a Mission Viejo motorcycle accident is often clouded by false assumption. Historically, many juries begin with the perception that most motorcycle riders are a bit reckless and lane split when the situation does not call for it. It is not uncommon for them to assign the behavior of the few who consistently break the law to the vast Southern California motorcycle riding community. This is why it is so important to work with the experienced and highly recommended attorneys at the Law Firm of Rivers Morrell.
My name is Rivers Morrell, and after more than 40 years of experience in motorcycle accidents I can tell you it is very important to begin an investigation as soon as possible to preserve all evidence from the scene as well as the testimony of witnesses while it is fresh in their minds.
In many cases, eyewitness accounts of what actions the drivers who were involved in the accident took immediately before the accident happened can be valuable evidence in determining fault. In other cases, the law enforcement accident investigation of the incident can be crucial.
