Irvine Motorcycle Accident, Injury and Wrongful Death Attorney
Irvine motorcycle injuries are increasing each year, and this is a concern for all of us. Motorcycles in Irvine and throughout southern California are able to take advantage of the great weather, and freedom to move through local traffic. However, many drivers in and around Irvine are not as attentive to the presence of motorcycles and accidents with motorcycles frequently occur as cars change lanes, or pull out into the path of a motorcycle. Those who are riding a bike have very little protection, especially if an accident happens at speed. Accidents in Irvine where the car pulls in front of an oncoming motorcycle or where they change lanes abruptly and strike the cyclist can and often do result in serious injuries or a fatal outcome.
Irvine has more citizens injured on a bicycle each year than on a motorcycle, but the injuries that result from a crash involving a car or truck and a motorcycle can result in:
- Traumatic Brain Injury or Head Trauma
- Broken Neck or Back Resulting in Permanent Paralysis
- Severe Trauma to Internal Organs
- Scarring from Road Rash
While we are required to wear a helmet at all times while riding on a motorcycle here in California, the likelihood of serious injury is increased for motorcycle riders and their passengers. The more severe the injuries, the more important it is to ensure that the accident settlement provides for all of the treatment, physical therapy and future medical care you will require, as well as any modifications that must be made to your home or vehicles as a result of the accident.
Distracted Driving and Alcohol Related Accidents Play a Role in Irvine
The number of accidents and Irvine motorcycle injuries that involve distracted driving is also increasing. We are able to determine if the driver of the car who struck you was texting, emailing or on the phone at the time of the accident. Irvine is also home to some of the finest dining and entertainment venues in Orange County and alcohol related accidents have been on the rise for the past few years.
