A Dedicated Advocate For Injured Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists in Southern California enjoy year-round weather to get outdoors and hit the road. Unfortunately, with such freedom also comes risks. Motorcyclists can suffer devastating injuries in an accident, especially if the crash involves a car or truck.
I am Brian Burchett, a personal injury attorney in San Diego. With over 30 years of experience working with complex injury claims, I know what it takes to pursue what you deserve after an accident. Early in my career, I spent several years representing insurance companies in personal injury cases. I now apply this knowledge to my clients’ cases as their lawyer. I know how insurance companies approach catastrophic injury claims, and I will fight diligently on your behalf.
Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
As a motorcyclist, you may take precautions to keep yourself safe on the road. This could include wearing a helmet, wearing protective clothing, driving defensively and keeping up the maintenance on your bike. However, many accidents involving motorcycles are often outside of the motorcyclist’s control. Common causes of accidents can include other drivers who:
- Drive while distracted, impaired or fatigued
- Fail to sufficiently check their blind spots before merging or turning
- Speed or drive recklessly
- Fail to respect a motorcyclist’s right of way or give adequate space
An accident can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries. As motorcyclists have limited protection compared to drivers of cars or trucks, motorcyclists stand to suffer significant consequences in a crash. Injuries can include traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and more.
