Warm weather months promise more motorcyclists sharing the road. The added motorcycle traffic along with the average distracted driver creates a high-risk scenario for motorcycle-involved accidents. Motorcycle accidents prove to be especially dangerous, as a driver has very limited protection by design, putting him or her at a much higher risk for injury than those driving a passenger car. Motorcycle laws can be confusing, and finding proper legal help after an accident can be even more challenging. The Law Office of Raffi Khorozian is here to give you the legal help you need post-accident.
The outcomes of a motorcycle accident can be devastating, but they are not always the driver’s fault. Common factors that lead to motorcycle accidents include drivers of passenger cars making dangerous left-hand turns in front of motorcycles. These accidents account for nearly 42 percent of all motorcycle accidents. In addition, dangerous road conditions account for 25 percent of accidents involving motorcycles.
Common causes of not-at-fault motorcycle accidents include:
Common injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents include:
Since motorcyclists have higher vulnerability to fatal injuries, family members are often left to grieve the loss of their loved one, as well as deal with the legal mess left behind. Having an attorney to take care of it all for you gives you the time you need to readjust to life post-accident and get the settlement you and your family member deserve.
Dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance adjuster can be a pain. The insurance adjuster is more concerned with saving money for the company than giving you just compensation for your injuries and other damages. If you aren’t careful, your dealings with the insurance companies can prove more damaging than productive. That’s why it’s best to speak with an experienced attorney before settling for any type of settlement. Contact our office for a free evaluation of your motorcycle accident case.

Accidents involving passenger vehicles can result in serious injuries, but when an average sized automobile collides with a commercial truck, like an 18-wheeler or garbage truck, the consequences are frequently devastating. Victims of truck accidents may face life-threatening health problems, require costly medical treatment, and need time away from work to heal. An experienced personal injury attorney may be able to help these people file a compelling lawsuit against the negligent party that caused their 18-wheeler accident in order to get financial compensation for these damages.
The size and weight of 18-wheelers makes them extremely dangerous when operated in a reckless or careless manner. If a trucker or trucking company fails to comply with safety requirements, they may make these dangers a reality.
