Motorcycle Accident Attorney Oceanside

Owning a motorcycle is a dream for many people. They can’t wait until they can get on their bikes, start up the engine, and ride with the breeze. In California, that dream is realized by hundreds of thousands of people. The state leads the way with motorcycle ownership in the US.

If you are a motorcycle owner, we know you take steps to keep yourself safe, but you can’t control every driver on the road. Sometimes, accidents happen and they aren’t your fault. If you need a motorcycle accident attorney in Oceanside, you can contact the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt to get an experienced attorney on your side.

A Normal Day

When you go out on your motorcycle, getting into an accident probably isn’t on your mind. Of course you drive safely, but that’s what you are supposed to do. Despite every safety measure you take, other drivers on the road could still be careless. In the US each year, around 5,000 motorcyclists are killed and 90,000 are injured.

The deaths and injuries occur due to a number of factors. Many times, poorly designed and maintained roadways are the cause. While regular passenger vehicles are able to absorb the shock of a fault in the road, motorcycles sometimes cannot.

Often, it is other drivers that cause the accidents. You know that many drivers on the road don’t pay much attention to bikers and that can lead to deadly consequences. If a driver is speeding, changing lanes without signaling, or following a bike too closely, a collision is much more likely to occur. If a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, or distracted by their phone, they have a much higher chance of causing an accident.

When a vehicle strikes a motorcyclist, the damage can be extreme. Even when a rider is wearing a helmet, there is no competition when it comes to a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds. Often, the initial impact throws a motorcyclist from their bike to the pavement, causing even more injuries.

Common injuries in a motorcycle crash include road rash, broken arms, and broken legs. More severe injuries also occur, including internal injuries and head trauma. Often, emergency surgery is required to fix these injuries and the result is a lengthy hospital or rehabilitation stay.
