Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, leaving riders vulnerable to serious injuries. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve fair compensation for your pain and suffering. Gaylord & Nantais, a dedicated personal injury law firm in Long Beach, California, is here to fight for you.

Why Choose Gaylord & Nantais for Your Motorcycle Accident Case?

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, some more severe than others. Here’s a closer look at some common motorcycle accident injuries:
  • Road Rash: This is a painful abrasion caused by scraping against the pavement. While these may seem minor, severe road rash can lead to infection and scarring.
  • Broken Bones: Fractures are frequent in motorcycle accidents due to the lack of protection for riders. Broken arms, legs, ribs, and collarbones are all common.
  • Head Injuries: Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to head injuries due to the lack of a helmet or proper head protection. These injuries can range from concussions to life-threatening traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of a motorcycle accident can damage the spinal cord, leading to paralysis or other long-term disabilities.
  • Internal Injuries: Internal bleeding and organ damage can occur in motorcycle accidents, sometimes not presenting symptoms immediately. Seeking medical attention after an accident is crucial.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

The aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be chaotic and stressful. Here are some important steps to take if you’ve been injured in a Long Beach motorcycle accident:
  1. Seek Medical Attention: Even if you feel okay initially, get checked out by a doctor. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
  2. Secure the Scene: If possible, call 911 and turn on your hazard lights. If you can safely move your motorcycle, do so to avoid further traffic congestion.
  3. Gather Information: Exchange contact details with the other driver(s) involved, including names, phone numbers, and insurance information. Take pictures of the accident scene, your injuries, and any damage to vehicles involved.
  4. Report the Accident: File a police report, regardless of the severity of the accident. A police report will document the accident details and can be crucial evidence later.
  5. Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer: An experienced lawyer like those at Gaylord & Nantais can advise you on your legal rights and handle communication with insurance companies. Don’t speak to the insurance company before consulting an attorney.

FAQs

Long Beach Motorcycle Accident FAQs

While wearing a helmet is always the safest option, not wearing one at the fault of the other driver doesn’t necessarily prevent you from claiming compensation. However, insurance companies may use this to downplay the severity of your injuries. An attorney at Gaylord & Nantais can help navigate this situation and fight for the compensation you deserve regardless.
Witness statements, police reports, and even traffic camera footage can be crucial in piecing together the events of the accident. Our team will work diligently to investigate the accident and gather all available evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in California is generally two years from the date of the accident. It’s crucial to contact a lawyer as soon soon as possible to ensure you meet all deadlines and have ample time to build a strong case.
It’s best to consult with your doctor regarding your physical limitations before riding your motorcycle again. Additionally, some insurance companies may view riding a motorcycle during your claim as a sign you weren’t severely injured, potentially affecting your settlement.
California requires minimum liability insurance, but it may not cover all your damages. We can explore all options to recover compensation, including your own underinsured motorist coverage or filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Thomas on a claim and was very pleased with the outcome. He was very thorough in explaining everything needed to get the best chance at the desired results. Mr. Thomas showed a tremendous amount of dedication in making sure he provided a great client experience. He didn’t talk over my head, and he was patient with my questions.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
