Motorcycle Accident Claims in Palm Springs

Were you the victim of a motorcycle accident? Did you lose a loved one in a motorcycle accident that was caused by someone else's wrongdoing? According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), just under 500 motorcyclists were killed in California in 2019.

While this number is down from previous years, one motorcycle fatality is still one too many. Here at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., our team is committed to representing individuals who have suffered injuries and damages that were caused by the negligence of another driver.


Do you have questions regarding your motorcycle accident? Our Palm Springs motorcycle accident lawyers can help. Don't hesitate to give our experienced firm a call today.


The Severity of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are much more likely to cause serious injuries for the motorcycle driver because of the vehicle's smaller size in comparison to other vehicles. Aside from size, motorcycles also weigh much less, and do not offer nearly as much protection as normal passenger vehicles.

When a motorcyclist gets into an accident, they only have their helmet to rely on for protection. They do not have seat belts, and are not shielded in an enclosed space. This means that when a motorcyclist crashes, they could be sent flying through the air, resulting in severe injuries-or even death.

  • Vehicles making left-hand turns

What Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

The value of your motorcycle accident insurance claim or lawsuit is an important issue to consider. The entire purpose of personal injury compensation is to allow a victim to rebuild and reorganize his or her life to a similar point as it was before the accident occurred, and this can be difficult.

There are several factors that will need to be taken into account when determining a fair amount of compensatory damages that should be awarded.

These factors include:

  • Physical injuries
  • Medical bills
  • Permanent disability
  • Emotional trauma
  • Property damage
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Quality of life

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”
