NEWPORT BEACH MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS ARE COMMON
According to the California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), motorcycle accidents cause more injuries than other traffic accidents. In 2018, 1,000 deaths resulted from motorcycle accidents; 42 of those accidents were in Newport Beach. The statistics also show that motorcycle passengers are at 30 times higher risk of experiencing serious injuries due to an accident than motorcycle riders. It is primarily because the passenger typically does not have the protection motorcycle riders have. Additionally, motorcyclists usually endure two impacts, the first is a collision with the other party, and the second is hitting the ground.
Motorcycle accident injuries generally have a higher claim value than other personal injury claims because they are usually more severe. Therefore, choosing an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in Newport Beach is paramount. Failing to invest in experience can jeopardize the outcome of your case and how much you are awarded in your settlement.

TYPICAL INJURIES THAT CAN RESULT FROM MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
California's universal helmet law requires all motorcycle drivers and passengers to wear helmets while riding. This is to reduce the severe head injury and death risk. According to California's Vehicle Code, "Driver and any passenger shall wear a safety helmet meeting requirements established pursuant to Section 27802 when riding on a motorcycle, motor-driven cycle, or motorized bicycle."
Despite wearing a helmet, many motorcyclists have less protective equipment than motorists, who have safety features such as airbags and seatbelts in their vehicles. Due to this, motorcyclists have a higher risk of sustaining severe injuries if a motorcycle accident occurs.
The injuries that motorcycle riders often suffer include the following:

- Damages refer to injuries and financial losses the motorcycle rider suffered.
- Liability refers to who was at fault for the accident.

COMMON CAUSES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
No one is 100% safe from traffic accidents. Even the most experienced and safest motorcycle riders are at risk of accidents. Unfortunately, negligent and inattentive car drivers who ignore the surroundings can cause motorcycle crashes in Newport Beach.
Road hazards like potholes or loose gravel can also cause motorcycle accidents. When these types of accidents happen, the state where the accident occurred or government agencies can be held liable for the motorcycle crash. This is because such establishments are responsible for maintaining smooth and safe road conditions for drivers.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents causes include the following:
- Driving while under the influence
- Road obstructions
- Lane splitting
- Failing to control the bike
- Unsafe lane changes
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
HOW TO DETERMINE LIABILITY IN A NEWPORT BEACH MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?
Establishing fault to file your claim in a motorbike accident is essential. The first thing we do after your motorcycle accident case is to establish accident liability. Your accident can result from a malfunctioning or missing traffic sign or light. If so, the city or government agency can be held accountable for the incident. If we find that this is the case, we immediately work on filing personal injury claims to the relevant agency.
If we find that the accident was due to vehicle failure, then we will go after the manufacturer when proving liability.
We assess your accident in relation to your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Then, we file your personal injury claim.
We generally include the following damages while assessing the worth of your claim:
- Your past and future medical bills
- Punitive damages
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Potential earnings
- Consortium loss
WHAT TO DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
Immediately following a motorcycle accident, call 911. The responding police officer and emergency medical staff will document the accident and the accident scene to develop a report of damages and liability. Medical and law enforcement personnel can also help move your vehicle from the road to a safe place to prevent further damage.
Gather evidence, such as pictures of the motorcycle crash and your injuries.
Eyewitness accounts, talk to witnesses, and get their phone numbers.
Get a copy of the other person's driver's license and contact information. This should be in the police report, but you will also want a copy.
After you cope with the emergency, you must seek medical attention and have medical professionals check for injuries.
Then, contact our Newport Beach motorcycle accident lawyers to discuss your case.
