About Avrek Law Firm
We help people who’ve been in motorbike accidents in the county. Since Orange County is densely populated and plenty of people own motorbikes in the region, some of which are quite fast and sporty, traffic accidents which involve motorcycles happen frequently.
There is a lot of traffic on the 22 freeway, as well as the 91 freeway and the 5 freeway, and these are places where accidents tend to occur. This is just the reality, although it’s a sad fact. We are there to help those who want to access settlements after motorcycle crashes.
Do You Want Proper Compensation?
If you’ve been injured via a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation, as long as you’re able to prove that another party was at fault. In some cases, more than one party may be responsible. Examples of expenses which you may seek out compensation for include medical costs, loss of income, physical rehabilitation, etc.
Some people need to be hospitalized after their accidents and others will suffer from permanent injuries due to their accidents. In addition, stress and psychological turmoil may result from this type of accident. All of these factors may render you eligible for a lucrative settlement.
In certain situations, such as hit-and-run motorbike accidents (or collisions) with uninsured drivers, people who have been injured may be able to sue for damages (compensation) via the uninsured motorist clauses of their car insurance policies. As well, if someone is killed due to an accident, a family member may be able to sue, via a wrongful death claim.
Stats for motorbike accidents in Orange County indicate that hundreds of riders are hurt every year. For example, more than eighteen motorcyclists suffered fatalities in 2014. Anaheim is the Orange County city with the highest motorcycle accident numbers. Santa Ana is also a place where people are likely to get into these types of crashes. Reasons for crashes vary, from running red lights to being under the influence to being distracted. Accidents may be the fault of motorcyclists, drivers of automobiles or trucks or pedestrians.
While following all of the rules of the road and driving with caution may help to reduce your risk of getting into a motorcycle accident in Orange County, some things that happen on county roadways may be out of your control. However, in order to enhance safety, you should always follow the speed limit and drive slower when weather or road conditions are poor.
What to Do After an Accident
If you have been in an accident, don’t leave the crash site. Stay where you are – emergency personnel should arrive shortly. If you are ambulatory after the accident, use the waiting time in order to gather evidence from the crash site. Taking photos with a camera phone will be smart. Also, when you talk to the police, request a copy of the accident report. In addition, be sure that you receive medical attention and follow any instructions that your physician gives.
