Below are some motorcycle accident statistics that have been provided by the firm to encourage motorcyclists and drivers to be safe while out on the road:

  • Each year, motorcycle accidents lead to thousands of fatalities in the United States. In 2015, it is reported by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration that 4,976 people died during motorcycle accidents.
  • In 2015, the majority of people who died during motorcycle accidents were over the age of 40.
  • Statistics prove that when people wear helmets and protective riding gear, they significantly reduce their chance of being injured if they are involved in a collision with another motor vehicle.
  • According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, motorcyclists that do not wear helmets are 40% more likely to suffer a fatal head injury if involved in an accident. Only 15% of riders who do not wear helmets will sustain non-fatal injuries if involved in an accident.
  • Of all injuries, head injuries are the leading cause of death for those involved in motorcycle accidents.
  • The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration also reports that wearing a helmet can reduce a person's chance of dying during a motorcycle accident by 37%.
  • The University of Southern California conducted a study of 3,600 participants and discovered that wearing a helmet is the single most important factor in surviving a motorcycle accident.
  • In 2015, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reported that 88,000 people were injured during motorcycle accidents in the United States.

Types of Motorcycle Injuries

Once motorcyclists have been involved in accidents, it is not surprising that they can be seriously injured. In fact, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reports that each year, thousands of people are injured after being involved in motorcycle accidents.

After a motorcycle accident has occurred, people may escape with minor injuries, or they may leave the accident in critical condition. Motorcycle accidents are responsible for countless head injuries, brain injuries, back injuries and spinal cord injuries every year. Injuries like these demand pervasive medical treatment and in some cases, sufferers may learn that their injuries are permanent, which means they will never have the quality of life they once had.

Why You Need a Motorcycle Injury Lawyer

People who have been injured during motorcycle accidents owe it to themselves to have their cases reviewed by a skilled personal injury lawyer, especially when they have strong suspicions that their accidents were caused by third party negligence. In some cases, people may be eligible for filing personal injury claims, which would allow them to seek monetary damages from negligent parties. Damages may cover things like medical bills, lost income and property damage and may also cover things like pain, suffering and emotional trauma. While money cannot rid people of their injuries, it can make their recovery process a little bit easier and less overwhelming.

The Palm Spring motorcycle accident lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. are highly trained in both personal injury and motorcycle accident law. With their help, people stand a solid chance of obtaining winning verdicts and significant settlements for their serious motorcycle accident injuries.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”
