Motorcycle Accidents

Motor Vehicle Collision Attorney Serving the Downey Area

Most motorcyclists will tell you that there is little more enjoyable than riding on the open road, whether for pleasure or as a means to go about your daily routine. Unfortunately, too many drivers of cars and trucks fail to pay attention behind the wheel, causing serious accidents to occur. When motorcyclists are involved, the injuries are often devastating because they are more exposed to the external elements. At Omofoma Law Firm, our Downey motorcycle accident lawyer understands what a rider experiences when they are involved in an accident. Our team of professionals will work diligently to investigate your claim and to ensure that your legal rights are asserted to the fullest extent possible. We have successfully handled many accident cases involving catastrophic injuries, recognizing that it is critical to ensure that a victim receives enough compensation to cope with the long-term or permanent impact of the accident.

Understanding the Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Even if you are the safest rider on the road, you can still fall victim to another driver's carelessness. One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is driver inattention. Far too many drivers use their cell phones or other electronic devices behind the wheel. Talking, texting, checking email, or surfing the web takes a driver's focus away from the road conditions, which can change in a matter of seconds. Since motorcycles are much smaller than passenger vehicles, it can be more difficult for a driver of a car or truck to see a motorcyclist until it is too late. Drunk drivers are another common cause of motorcycle accidents because their faculties are too impaired to observe their surroundings, including nearby motorcyclists.

Many motorcycle crashes happen at intersections where a distracted or intoxicated driver fails to yield the right-of-way. Also, poor visibility or hazardous road conditions can also lead to accidents when motorists fail to adjust their speed and driving patterns accordingly. These are only a few examples of how motorcyclists can be injured due to motorist negligence.

Assert Your Legal Right to Compensation

A motorcycle accident attorney in the Downey area can help a victim bring a personal injury lawsuit against a careless driver to recover compensation for his or her injuries. In this lawsuit, the plaintiff's lawyer must show that the driver failed to use appropriate care and skill behind the wheel, similar to how a reasonably prudent driver would have acted when faced with the same situation. This includes refraining from distracted driving activities, driving appropriately for the roadway conditions, and obeying all California traffic laws.

After demonstrating how the defendant failed to use due care, you must prove that this careless conduct was the direct cause of your injuries. In other words, your Downey motorcycle accident attorney will need to gather and present evidence that shows that you would not have been injured if the defendant had used the proper care. The crash also must have been foreseeable under the circumstances. After establishing this causal connection, the remaining task involves proving the amount of damages that you are entitled to receive from the defendant. Some common categories of damages that an injured motorcycle rider can recover include past and estimated future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Family members of a rider who was killed in a fatal accident can bring a wrongful death claim to pursue compensation for their loss.

Thank you Ese Omofoma, not just for your outstanding professional expertise and help in navigating the legal system but for your kindness and understanding. Incredibly grateful! P.W.
What a great experience. I was attacked by a dog and found it very hard to find a firm willing to take my case. Omofoma Law, not only took my case right away but I worked directly with Ese, the head of the firm, instead of always dealing with the secretary. The insurance companies would have walked all over me but thanks to the help from Omofoma Law I was able to walk away from the ordeal having all of my medical expenses taken care of as well as a nice settlement.
