Motorcycle riders, and the injuries they receive caused by an accident, are unique for several different reasons. Due to a lack of protection between riders, the road, and other vehicles, motorcyclists often suffer very serious injuries during accidents. What could be a simple “fender bender” to someone in a full size car, can cause serious injuries to a motorcycle rider.
Motorcycles are susceptible to a unique set of risks on the road, meaning even the most experienced riders can crash. Motorcycle accidents can be caused by several factors, such as:
- Construction zones
- Road hazards
- Distracted drivers
- Motorists failing to yield the right of way
- Vehicle drivers changing lanes without yielding

Palm Desert Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the injuries can be extremely severe. Severe spinal, head, neck,paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb may all occur to pedestrians when they are struck by vehicles.
Often, the driver of the vehicle, or their insurance company, will try to shift the blame for the accident onto the pedestrian. Police sometimes claim that the pedestrian was not inside the crosswalk when they arrive at the scene, as the pedestrian has fallen outside the crosswalk area. Insurance adjusters will often affix the blame on the pedestrian, stating that the pedestrian should have noticed the car coming and got out of the way. Often it is difficult to get an insurance company to pay for the injury to a pedestrian than it is to pay for the injury to a person inside a vehicle.

Palm Desert Slip and Fall Attorney
In the case of a slip or fall accident, the law doesn’t hold businesses responsible for the accident unless the company or its employees failed to meet a legal duty of care.
If you desire to sue for an injury that happened at a business location, you must show that the business was legally at fault.
Slip and fall injuries may happen in a variety of ways. All business establishments can be sued for slips, falls, and collisions. The owners of a business may be sued because of poor hiring, supervision, or training of employees. Each state has its own laws that determine the standards of care that can apply in any personal injury case involving a business.
Courts understand that businesses can’t preclude every slip and fall accident from happening. They require that businesses exercise the same amount of care as a reasonably prudent person would. This means guarding against foreseeable problems and taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents. You can recover damages for most types of personal injury only if you can prove that the business failed in these duties.
