Oxnard Motorcycle Accident Statistics

In a single year, there are around 41 motorcyclists who have been killed or injured.

The main cause of motorcycle accidents in Oxnard is speed-related. Usually, motorcyclists maybe riding at high rates of speed, and may not be able to come to a complete stop in the event that other drivers are negligent around them. It could also be the case where other drivers are speeding and a motorcyclist does not have the opportunity to come to a complete stop to avoid the collision.

Although Oxnard does not have as high rates of injuries and fatalities as Los Angeles does,  negligent driving is still a major problem for those living in Oxnard. In fact, Oxnard has open long roads which increases the likelihood of a motorcycle accident.

Who is responsible for my motorcycle accident in Oxnard?

There are various different types of accidents that could occur from riding a motorcycle. Below are the various types, along with how our attorneys could help you determine who the liable party is:

Pedestrian and motorcycle accidents

Sometimes, pedestrians may walk across an unmarked crosswalk, making it difficult for a motorcyclist to swerve out of the way. In that case, an accident reconstructionist will determine how the accident occurred, and who the responsible party is.

Vehicle and Motorcycle Accidents

This occurs when there has been a collision between a standard vehicle and a motorcycle. The type of accident may determine exactly how the collision occurred. For example, when analyzing a t-bone accident, the impact and speed is looked into.

Motorcycle Accidents with Objects In The Road

Sometimes, a motorcyclist could collide with an object on the road. This then takes a deep dive into what the object is, and whether the roadway may have been designed improperly, increasing the likelihood of an accident.

What are examples of motorcycle injuries in Oxnard?

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents lead to severe injuries compared to standard vehicle accidents. This is because motorcycles are not equipped with as many safety features as a standard vehicle. For example, motorcycles may not have a proper seat belt that goes around the chest, or even airbags that deploy during an accident. A motorcycle accident that occurs at a very low speed could still result in catastrophic injuries. Examples of injuries could include:

  • broken bones
  • fractures
  • burns
  • amputations
  • spinal cord injuries
  • paralysis
  • head injuries
  • traumatic brain injuries
  • whiplash
  • infections

Do I have to wear a motorcycle helmet in Oxnard, California?

In Oxnard, California, all drivers are required to wear a motorcycle helmet. This is to decrease the likelihood of a traumatic brain injury in the event that a motorcyclist is involved in an accident.

What if I was involved in a motorcycle accident and I was not wearing a helmet?

If you were a motorcyclist involved in an accident where you were not wearing a helmet, you still may be able to file a lawsuit against the other responsible party.  Oxnard falls under a comparative fault state, which means that partially responsible parties could still recover a portion of their damages.

How much could I recover for my motorcycle accident injuries in Oxnard?

Each type of motorcycle accident is different. For example, motorcycle accidents that involve trucks and larger vehicles could result in serious injuries compared to low-speed and low-impact motorcycle accidents. That is why we recommend that you contact our attorneys to set up a complimentary consultation to review the circumstances of your accident and determine how to best move forward with compensation.

What compensation could I recover from my accident?

Compensation is a wide term used to refer to a variety of damages that you could recover from a motorcycle accident lawsuit in Oxnard. Examples of expenses could include:

  • Medical expenses: medical expenses take into account all costs associated with treating your injuries, including in-home medical equipment, emergency room bills, ambulance bills, consultations with doctors, prescription medication, surgeries, injections, x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, physical therapy, and even mental health counseling.

  • Pain and suffering: pain and suffering takes into account the mental toll that the injuries have taken, and looks at how the injured party’s life has changed since the accident. This includes loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, anxiety, and PTSD.

  • Property damage: property damage includes damage to the motorcycle, along with any other personal belongings that the motorcyclists may have had on at the time of the accident that need to be repaired or replaced.

  • Lost income: lost income includes the income that the motorcyclist should have been awarded from work, but was unable to do so from their accident.

  • Loss of future earning capacity: this takes into account the effect the injuries have had on the injured party, and whether the injured party is able to return back to work or find a similar job they had before the accident. For example, if the accident victim was working as a contractor prior to the accident, and they are now unable to return to work as a contractor, they may be able to recover the difference in their damages.
