Our Beaumont Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Are Personally Committed To Securing Your Justice

While motorcycles are efficient in terms of getting through traffic, they are also involved in many serious road accidents. Even though they are smaller than the average car, they can still cause severe injuries to pedestrians and other road users. If you’re hurt in a crash, reach out to our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers at (888) 488-1391. We can help you recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

Beaumont City connects major routes in all directions. From the San Gorgonio Pass, vehicles can head west on Interstate 10 to Santa Monica or east via the Southwest low deserts leading to Jacksonville, Florida. No wonder why many motorcyclists fall in love with Beaumont highways. However, just like any other motorist on the road, riders can get into a motorcycle accident at any given time.

Arash Law has been helping motorcycle accident victims for many decades and has won them over $500 Million in compensation. One of our advantages over other law firms is our extensive knowledge of all applicable laws and experience in handling cases similar to yours. Not to mention that we have accident attorneys in Beaumont who are motorcycle enthusiasts, and some are riders, too. Feel free to contact our law firm in Beaumont to learn about your rights.

Motorcycle Accident
Auto v. Motorcycle – At first glance, the evidence seemed to be unfavorable to our severely injured client. The police report had placed him at fault for the crash. He was alleged to have been under the influence and speeding on his motorcycle. And he lacked motorcycle insurance subjecting him to California’s Prop 213, barring him from recovering damages for pain and suffering. Benny and his team, however, were able to prove that the truck driver violated his training and his company’s policies and procedures and made an exceptionally dangerous turn that contributed to the collision. Had the turn been made safely, the crash would not have occurred.

How Our Beaumont Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Help Win Your Case

Here’s a rundown of what we can do for you:

  • Collect evidence – Other evidence may be harder for you to obtain, especially if you are badly hurt. Our motorcycle accident attorneys can go to the Beaumont police station to get a copy of the incident report. We will obtain CCTV footage and talk to other possible witnesses to back up your case.
  • Refer you to top doctors – We have worked with the best medical practitioners in California who can completely assess your condition and help you recover. We’ll also consult them to determine what damages you can get in a claim based on the severity of your injuries.
  • Protect you from any intimidation – The at-fault party’s insurance company frequently blames victims and brainwashes them into believing they bear a greater share of the responsibility. Our lawyers will protect you from these tactics by communicating and negotiating with them on your behalf.
  • Prevent you from accepting lowball offers – Insurance companies might try to minimize your payout by any means possible. They may also lie and claim that their first offer is the best you could get. However, these offers typically don’t cover your full losses. To ensure you’re not being taken advantage of, you can trust our lawyers to handle your case.
  • Provide you with a service vehicle – If your car or motorcycle was damaged in the accident, our lawyers in Beaumont can help you get a temporary vehicle for your commute.

Common Types Of Motorcycle Accident Cases

Rear-end accidents are among the most common types of motorcycle accident cases. These crashes can lead to whiplash, back injuries, and financial burdens for the injured rider. It usually occurs when the driver behind pays no attention, failing to brake in time when the vehicle in front stops.

Another common type of motorcycle accident is a head-on collision. These incidents usually cause lasting injuries, disabilities, and even death. As a result, victims may face millions in medical bills and lost earnings for years.

Typically, the drivers at fault are found to be fatigued, distracted, and inexperienced, resulting in catastrophic head-on collisions. In fact, according to a recent report from the California Department of Transportation (DOT), head-on collisions account for 26% of all car crashes in the state.

Regardless of the severity of the resulting damages, the at-fault driver must face legal consequences. If you happen to experience these types of motorcycle accidents while driving in Beaumont, contact our lawyers. They will assist you in getting your medical bills and other financial damages covered.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law.

Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

Typical Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents Our Attorneys Encounter

Here are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:

Speed Limit Violations

Motorcycles and other vehicles in Beaumont have a maximum speed limit of 65 mph on most highways. For two-lane undivided highways, the limit is 55 mph unless otherwise specified.

All drivers in California learn about these traffic regulations even before obtaining their licenses, but many neglect to follow them. Overspeeding vehicles could easily cause a motorcyclist to lose balance upon impact, leading to serious injuries.

Many motorcyclists also ride at top speeds due to the thrill. However, this dangerous behavior can put pedestrians, bicyclists, and other road users at risk of getting injured.

As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 12,330 fatalities in speeding-related traffic crashes in 2021, which is quite alarming for all drivers. The data also shows that speeding accounted for 33% of fatal accidents involving motorcycle riders, more than other types of drivers.

Our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers are experts at gathering evidence and conducting investigations. It does not matter whether you spot the plate number or not; we will eventually find them and hold them responsible for your injuries and property damage.

Recklessness While Switching Lanes

Sometimes, motorists don’t check their side mirrors before changing lanes or merging. As a result, they might not realize that another vehicle is only a few feet away as they make a dangerous maneuver, causing a side-swipe collision. Failing to use turn signals could also result in these accidents.

If you believe that a car or motorcycle that recklessly switched lanes injured you and damaged your vehicle, call us or fill out this contact form. Our Beaumont accident lawyers will evaluate your case and discuss your next steps.

Driving Under The Influence (DUI)

It is illegal for motorcyclists and all other motorists to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08%. At this point, the driver would likely exhibit some dangerous behaviors, such as weaving between lanes and running red lights. These could easily result in an accident.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has consistently expressed concern about DUIs. In 2020, there were 882 alcohol-related fatalities, while drug-impaired driving accidents claimed 645 lives in the Golden State. According to NHTSA, 28.4% of the motorcycle fatalities in 2021 were alcohol-related.

If drinking cannot be avoided, it is preferable to stay for a few hours until sober or to securely park the vehicle and take an Uber or Lyft home.

Distractions While Driving

Texting while driving is prohibited in all states. However, many drivers continue to do so, resulting in fatal car accidents. According to the Office Of Traffic Safety (OTS), distracted driving killed 140 people in California in 2021, a 27.3% increase from 2020.

Mobile device use, which includes texting, net browsing, taking photos, and emailing, is the biggest cause of distracted driving accidents in the United States.

Inclement Weather Conditions

When it rains, California’s maximum speed limit is automatically reduced to 55 mph. This helps avoid speeding vehicles losing control on slippery roads during adverse weather conditions.

In rare cases of snow, more hazards are present, increasing the probability of traffic accidents if drivers and riders are not careful.

Dangerous Road Conditions

Potholes and damaged road signs are some of the most common traffic hazards. They regularly cause motorists to lose control of their vehicles, which can lead to serious injuries or even death.

One of the most effective approaches to combating road dangers is to travel slower than usual in order to observe all types of road obstructions. This will not only prevent accidents but may also protect motorcycles from damage. Another way is to take a familiar route, especially at night and when it is raining.

If you get into an accident due to a road hazard, even on government property such as highways, you may have a valid case. Schedule an appointment with one of our Beaumont motorcycle accident attorneys, and we can assist you in filing a claim.

Inexperienced Drivers

Even though California requires 15-hour motorcycle training, it is insufficient to understand the risks and hazards of motorcycle riding properly. Unfortunately, many motorcyclists go on their bikes and travel on major freeways without much experience, resulting in accidents. Teen driving safety is also a major concern in the state. Teenaged motorists, who don’t have much experience sharing the road with motorbikes, might become reckless.

If you believe that a minor or inexperienced driver hit you in Beaumont, resulting in an injury, connect with our motorcycle accident lawyers, and we will guide you on what you should do.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

The majority of our clients sustained motorcycle injuries, such as whiplash, burns, and road rash, which are easy to treat and manage. Some victims, however, have suffered life-threatening injuries that have had a major impact on their daily lives. We’ve had clients who experienced chronic and long-term injuries, and some have been afraid to ride again due to the possibility of another incident.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Traumatic Brain Injuries are common in motor vehicle collisions, as the head sustains a sudden and severe blow, causing the brain to move partially. The common symptoms of TBIs include:

  • Mood swings
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

What makes brain injuries dangerous is that victims often don’t notice something is amiss until it’s too late. However, even when treated right away, they can still lead to severe conditions and even death.

If you have been in a motorcycle accident and experienced the symptoms above, please contact our lawyers in Beaumont to discuss more about your case. They could also refer you to the best doctors in California to fully assess your condition. Our brain injury accident lawyers have helped hundreds of victims get justice and compensation.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Falling off a motorcycle or getting hit by one could severely injure the back, causing muscle strains and spinal cord injuries. These conditions can result in extreme back pain, numbness, loss of balance, breathing problems, and loss of bladder and bowel control. In many cases, a victim might also experience loss of sensation and paralysis below the site of the injury. If you have these symptoms after a motorcycle accident, visit a healthcare facility and then speak with our attorneys in Beaumont to talk about a possible case.

Loss Of Limbs

Amputation of any bodily part, whether a finger or a leg, has a negative physical and psychological impact on the survivor. It will be tough to imagine living with only one leg, for example, for the rest of one's life. He or she may feel useless and unable to provide for a family moving forward. 

Victims might lose a limb in the accident or suffer severe damage that would require a doctor to amputate them surgically. The former scenario is less common, but it’s still a possibility, especially for motorcycle riders who don’t have enough protection as compared with car drivers and passengers.

Broken Bones

Fractured bones could sideline you from work for weeks or months. Treatment and rehabilitation may cost you thousands of dollars. Throughout the healing process, victims also suffer from intense pain, swelling, bruising, discoloration, strange body deformation, or immobility. 

Our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers commit to getting the best possible compensation. We believe you do not deserve to go through this pain, and we will hold the responsible party accountable.

Wrongful Deaths

In devastating cases, motorbike collisions could also lead to the demise of a loved one. Nobody deserves to lose a family member just because of someone’s recklessness on the road. Our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers will help victims pursue a wrongful death claim to pursue justice and compensation for their losses.

Who Is Responsible For A Motorcycle Accident?

In general, an individual who has caused suffering and property damage to another person by clear negligence is to blame and is legally liable for his actions.

To understand this further, you have to know exactly what negligence is. By definition, negligence is when a person fails to act with the care that a reasonable person would in the same situation, resulting in harm, injury, or loss of life.

It also has four essential components:

  • Duty of Care – A person’s duty of care depends on the specific circumstances. A motorist, for example, has a legal responsibility to follow traffic laws and avoid behaviors that might cause harm to other road users.
  • Breach of Duty – When that person neglects their responsibilities to keep others safe, it’s considered a breach of duty. In our example above, a motorist may run red lights or drink and drive.
  • Causation – A claim must also directly link a person’s failure to the injury, damage to property, or loss of life. Causation is also divided into two parts:
    • Factual – Determines if the person’s actions directly resulted in anyone’s injury, damage to property, or loss of life
    • Legal – Assesses the fairness of holding the person legally responsible for anyone’s injury, damage to property, or loss of life
  • Damage – It refers to the damages that the victim sustains because of the breach of duty, such as physical injuries, psychological traumas, and financial difficulties. For damages to have a bearing, they must come with evidence.

If only one of these elements is not present, your case would be invalid. You need our skilled motorcycle accident attorneys in Beaumont to represent you and ensure you can pursue your rights. We can also evaluate your claim; fill out our “Do I Have A Case?” form, and we’ll get back to you to discuss your legal options.

Steps To Take After A Motorcycle Accident

With many decades of combined experience in handling motorcycle accident cases in Beaumont City, our lawyers have developed the 4 C’s to save the lives of victims and preserve their rights after an incident.

Call Emergency Services

Safety should always be your top priority. When an accident happens on a highway, immediately move away from the passing cars and go to the roadside to avoid any further injury. Once you are safe from further harm, call 911 for medical assistance.

While waiting for the EMT, check yourself for any injuries. If you are bleeding, make sure to put pressure on it to prevent loss of blood. By applying pressure to your wound, you are giving the medical team time before they arrive for the proper first aid application.

We also recommend that you see a doctor to determine your actual condition and uncover other health concerns, as some injuries are not immediately apparent.

Cooperate With The Police

Once law enforcement arrives, they will do an initial investigation of the accident scene and create a police report. They will check on you, the other party, and anyone else involved as well.

The cops will ask some questions about what happened. Cooperate with them, but always remember the “Golden Rule” in an accident: never apologize or say the word sorry. Saying sorry may mean you did something wrong.

As soon as the police wrap up their investigation, ask them where to get a copy of the incident report. If you are injured, our motorcycle accident lawyers can obtain it anywhere in Beaumont for you.

Collect Important Information

If you can move, start collecting evidence. Take pictures of your injuries, your vehicle, and the surroundings. These will serve as pieces of evidence that you might need in your claim, especially when your case goes to court.

Calmly approach the other party and ask for their name, address, phone number, email, and insurance details. Keep composed at all times to prevent any altercations that could put you in trouble or at fault.

Likewise, check for any eyewitnesses and ask for their information. You may also request that they provide their testimony to the authorities.

Call Arash Law

Dealing with the insurer is difficult. They will ask questions that you may find simple to answer. But be careful; they are looking for any loophole that may put you at fault to minimize your claim. So, for your security, we recommend that you contact a lawyer.

We have protected thousands of clients from insurance companies’ harassment. We advise clients not to speak with insurance representatives as much as possible and instead to allow our legal team to handle these delicate situations.

The golden rule also applies when dealing with insurance firms: do not say sorry, or they will claim that you are at fault.

Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Beaumont will take on all coordination responsibilities with the at-fault party to prevent them from jeopardizing your claim.

Statute Of Limitations In Motorcycle Accidents

The statute of limitations is a clause within the California Code of Civil Procedure §335.1 that allows individuals to file personal injury cases within two years from the date of the accident. However, there are some exceptions:

  1. If the victim is a minor and his or her parents decide not to push the claim, the case will be placed on hold. But once he or she turns 18, the statute of limitations begins to run.
  2. If the victim discovers an injury late, even after the two-year deadline, he or she will still have a couple more years to pursue the claim. The deadline begins once the injury is clinically diagnosed.
  3. If the victim sustains an injury on government property, he or she will only have six months to file a claim and avoid technical forfeiture.

At a glance, you may think that two years is long enough to file a claim. But based on our experience, it is not, especially when you are severely hurt.

Gathering all of the evidence may take months, not to mention the back-and-forth journeys to various government agencies to submit the paperwork. Entertaining the insurer’s left and right calls is another story. All of them are time-consuming and stressful, derailing your recovery.

Partnering with our motorbike accident lawyers in Beaumont will make sure that all the documents are filed ahead of time. We will handle the entire process while keeping you updated so you can focus on your recovery.

Our Beaumont attorneys can also inform you more about the statute of limitations and if your motorcycle accident case is qualified for an exemption.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

On a national level, the National Safety Council (NSC) recorded 5,932 motorcycle-related fatalities and 83,000 injuries in 2021.

The NSC has also reported that inclement weather is the leading cause of motorbike accidents in the United States. At the same time, almost 50% of the total deaths revealed that the riders were not wearing helmets because some states don’t require riders who are 18 years old or older to wear one.

Meanwhile, OTS reported only eight motorcycle-related fatalities and injuries in Beaumont in 2021. Stricter restrictions in California, such as the 15-hour Motorcyclist Training Course and the no-helmet, no-ride policy, may have contributed to the city’s relatively low fatal and injury motorcycle incident rates.

Despite the low casualties in Beaumont, every rider must always use caution every time he or she is on the road. An accident can happen at any time, especially when the weather is unpredictable.

Keep our hotline number accessible in case you get into an accident involving a motorcycle. Our Beaumont motorcycle accident attorneys are available 24/7 and ready to advise you on how to protect your rights.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I Sue After A Motorcycle Accident?

Yes, but you don’t have to file a lawsuit right away. First, our motorcycle accident lawyers in Beaumont will negotiate with the parties involved to get you a fair settlement out of court. However, if these negotiations fail, we can sue the liable parties.

If a car hits your motorbike, you may have a viable case, and you are eligible to file a claim in the trial court. The same goes for when you’re a pedestrian, another motorcyclist, or a car driver and a motorcycle hits you. You have the right to pursue compensation regardless of the severity of your injuries and damages.

How Much Are Most Motorcycle Accident Settlements?

Every motorcycle accident case is unique, and the overall compensation amount depends on age, degree of injury, property damage, and capacity to support a family following financial losses.

Here are some past motorcycle accidents our lawyers have handled that can give you an idea of how we work and the amount you can get in a settlement.

$5,000,000 - Motorcycle vs Truck

We had a client who was riding their motorcycle when they were hit by a truck. The police accident record falsely accused him of DUI, preventing them from recovering damages and losses. Our legal team, as experts in fact-finding and investigation, proved to the court that the truck made a risky turn, resulting in the incident. Finally, the jury ruled in favor of our client and awarded them $5 million.

$1,500,000 - Motorcycle vs Rideshare Vehicle

In what was known as the largest motorcycle settlement in Tulare County, our lawyers were able to recover $1.5 million. Our client sustained spinal and wrist injuries after being hit by an on-duty rideshare driver. Not only were we able to protect our client’s rights, but our lawyers were able to take on big ridesharing firms like Uber and Lyft.

$1,400,000 - Motorcycle Accident Due To Uneven Pavement

A former client hit uneven pavement during construction, resulting in fractured ribs and head trauma. We tried to settle it out of court, but the contractor denied their liability, forcing us to pursue a legal battle. After the first trial, the contractor agreed to settle for $1.4 million.

The examples above show our lawyers’ competence in motorcycle law and litigation, as well as our commitment to helping our clients get the best compensation. If you want to know how much your claim is worth, reach out to our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers.d head trauma. We tried to settle it out of court, but the contractor denied their liability, forcing us to pursue a legal battle. After the first trial, the contractor agreed to settle for $1.4 million.

How Much Do Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Cost?

Most personal injury lawyers in California, including those specializing in motorcycle accidents, typically charge on a contingency fee basis rather than hourly. In this model, our attorneys only get paid a certain percentage of the final settlement or award amount, which could range anywhere from 30% to 40%. We’ll break down the fees in more detail during our onboarding process.

Essentially, it’s a no-win, no-fee approach where victims don’t have to pay their attorneys until they recover compensation. They also won’t have to worry about not being able to afford legal representation. This agreement also demonstrates how confident our Beaumont motorcycle accident lawyers are in their ability to win your case and provide you with the highest possible compensation.
