Common Causes of Oceanside Motorcycle Crashes
No matter what type of motorcycle accident you or a relative were involved in, we are here to get to the bottom of what happened. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we believe in conducting prompt and thorough investigations into the accidents that cause our clients harm.
When you decide to partner with Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will immediately take steps to preserve and gather evidence related to the crash. If a business is involved, we will send a preservation of evidence letter, informing the business that you have a claim and it should not get rid of any potential evidence.
Then, we will gather whatever evidence is available, including photos, surveillance video, business records, electronic data, eye witness statements, and when necessary, expert witness opinions.
Through the years, we have found some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Alcohol or drug impairment
- Improper lane changes
- Defective vehicles
- Dangerous road or weather conditions
- Defective roads
- Unprotected left turns
- Blind curves
It is important to know what went wrong to identify who is liable for compensating you for your injuries or loss. In many motorcycle accident claims we handle in Oceanside, another motorist is at fault. However, we also have addressed crashes caused by negligent commercial drivers, manufacturers, pedestrians, other motorcycle operators, and municipalities or states responsible for the roads.

Call an Oceanside Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Before Speaking to an Insurer
Following a motorcycle accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you may be contacted by that person’s insurance company. When it is clear to the insurer that their policyholder was at fault for the accident, they may try to mitigate their losses. They may quickly offer you a settlement. But be careful. Quick settlement offers are often lower than you deserve. It is important to talk with your own motorcycle crash lawyer in Oceanside to fully understand what your claim is worth before considering an insurance settlement offer.
Motorcycle claims can also go a very different direction than a quick settlement offer. Instead of the insurer discussing a settlement, it may claim its policyholder is not at fault. Many motorcyclists are blamed for their own accidents. This possibility is another reason to hire a lawyer immediately. You may need to build a strong case against the at-fault driver while defending yourself against claims of contributory negligence.
