Maximum vulnerability: when a motorcyclist is sideswiped

On Behalf of | Oct 27, 2015 | Motorcycle Accidents |

We refer to “an equal right to the road” on one page of our website at the Los Angeles personal injury law firm of Scott J. Corwin.

Intuitively, most of our readers know immediately that asking for that right is not something that drivers of mammoth-sized 18-wheel trucks routinely request.

Indeed, drivers sitting up high and behind the wheel of tractor-trailers and other ultra-sized commercial vehicles on Southern California freeways and interstates typically just assume their roadway dominance.

In other words, when a trucker wants to changes lanes, he or she, well, often just changes lanes.

That “I know I’m paramount out on the road” attitude is far from being equally shared by another select group of riders in California, namely, motorcyclists, who are at the other spectrum of size and girth as they negotiate their comparatively — and, thus, vulnerable — vehicles through traffic in Los Angeles County and surrounding areas.

We note on our Motorcycle Lane Change Accidents website page an especially alarming reality for many bikers, namely, the sudden potential for a larger vehicle to unexpectedly swerve over into a lane occupied by a motorcyclist.

In many instances, and irrespective of how quick a biker’s reflexes might be, there is nothing that can be done to avoid being struck and injured.

Such accidents happen all the time, and despite the various excuses offered up by drivers in larger vehicles for striking motorcyclists, there is one predominant reason underlying such a result: negligence.

For obvious reasons, motorcyclists who are sideswiped on the road often suffer severe injuries. Many see their bikes totally destroyed, suffer downtime at work, have huge medical expenses and a need for follow-up rehabilitative therapy, and deal with numerous other accident-related exactions.

Those bikers have legal rights that can be pursued against negligent drivers and insurance companies.

Our firm has long-tenured and proven experience helping them gather relevant evidence and pursue remedies that fully compensate them for their injuries and crash-related costs.

We welcome readers’ online visits and the opportunity to respond to their questions and concerns.
