The Leading Causes of Motorcycle Crashes in California

by Staff Blogger | March 16th, 2020

Motorcycle crashes are notoriously deadly. Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in crashes than other types of motorists. That’s a reality that most motorcycles know instinctively when they get on their bikes and share the road with less-than-generous drivers.

If you ride, you already know some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. Each time a driver follows you too closely or veers into your lane, you get a glimpse of how motorcycle accidents occur.

But it’s important for all motorists, whether drivers or riders, to be aware of what causes accidents so we can all do our part to save motorcyclists’ lives. Check out our helpful infographic below for more information.

A Closer Look at the Numbers in California

All the information above applies to motorcycle accidents in our state as well as in the broader U.S., but we can dig a little deeper to learn about the specific causes of crashes in California. First, let’s look at the most recent data about the number of motorcycle accidents, which was last updated in 2016.

In 2016, 548 motorcycle fatalities occurred in California, which was an 11% increase from the previous year. There was also a 9% increase in motorcyclist deaths from not wearing a helmet from 2015 to 2016.

Data from the California Office of Traffic Safety lets us see even more recent data. There were 113 people injured or killed in motorcycle accidents in Sacramento in 2017. In Sacramento County, 500 people were injured or killed in motorcycle accidents in 2017.

But What About the Causes of Motorcycle Crashes in California?

How did these crashes happen? Here are the leading causes of motorcycle accidents in California, specifically:

  • A failure of the non-motorcyclist to give the motorcyclist the right-of-way.
  • Other motorists turning into the path of a motorcycle (in about one-third of all multi-vehicle crashes involving motorcyclists).
  • Driving or riding after consuming alcohol (in about 43% of all motorcycle crashes)

Then, of course, there are the common culprits of all crashes, including motorcycle crashes:

  • Distraction
  • Fatigue
  • Failure to adjust driving to the conditions of the road
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Failure to follow traffic signs or signals

As California motorcycle accident attorneys, we’ve seen first-hand how devastating a moment of distraction or one careless turn by a motorist can be for motorcyclists. Sadly, even though motorcyclists aren’t at fault for these crashes, they often face a stigma in each stage of the claims process.

Motorcyclists can be discriminated against by fellow motorists, law enforcement agencies, and insurance companies. This is one of the many reasons we suggest that motorcyclists like you contact an experienced attorney immediately following a crash—you deserve to have your rights protected.

What You Need to Know About the New Takata Airbag Recall

by Staff Blogger | March 9th, 2020

If you visit a car lot this year, you’ll notice that vehicles at all price points are loaded with safety features that were either reserved for high-end luxury vehicles or simply not possible just a decade or two ago. Bells and whistles such as lane departure warnings, blind spot indicators, stability control, collision avoidance systems, and backup cameras are commonplace or even mandatory on new models, making vehicles safer than ever. However, when it comes to protecting occupants during crashes, nothing is more effective than the tried and true seat belt and airbag.

But what happens when one of those safety devices is defective and potentially dangerous? That’s exactly what happened to millions of vehicles manufactured since 2003. In November 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) demanded that Takata Corporation recall its defective airbags that were equipped in millions of cars, trucks, and SUVs made by manufacturers ranging from Ford and Toyota to GM and Honda. The recall continued to expand for years after it was announced, making it the largest consumer product recall in history.

In December 2019, Takata was forced to recall yet another airbag component. Like the first recalled airbag, this one is capable of exploding during collisions, but it can also under-inflate, rendering it less effective at protecting occupants. All told, between 65 and 70 million vehicles are part of the recall, putting countless Americans at risk of serious injuries and even death.

Use These Websites to Find Out if Your Vehicle Is Affected

Everyone who owns an affected vehicle was supposed to receive a notification from its manufacturer informing them of the recall and instructing them on what to do next. However, some people didn’t receive the notifications, misplaced them, or simply forgot about them. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle is equipped with defective and recalled airbags, visit the following websites and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly find out:

Please note that not all vehicles included in the December 2019 recall have been added to the recall database as of right now. More information will be released over the coming months, so continue to check back to find out if your vehicle is included. You can also subscribe to the NHTSA’s Recall Alerts system to get up-to-date information when it’s released.

What Should You Do if Your Vehicle’s Airbags Are Recalled?

The overall risk of your vehicle’s airbags exploding or under-inflating during an accident are low. However, any level of risk above zero is unacceptable, and that’s why the airbags are being recalled. If your vehicle is affected by the recall, schedule a replacement as soon as possible at your local dealership. Because of the dangers posed to drivers and passengers in these vehicles, dealerships are offering free replacements.

If you own a 2006 Ford Ranger or 2006 Mazda B-series pickup truck, the manufacturers recommend that you don’t drive them unless absolutely necessary or if you’re taking them to have their airbags replaced. These vehicles are known for posing higher airbag explosion or malfunction risks than other vehicles and should be kept off the road until they’ve been serviced.

Let Us Help You Get Paid After a Defective Airbag Injury

Defective, exploding, and under-inflating airbags have already injured or killed dozens of Americans. If you or someone you love was hurt by a recalled airbag, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The California defective product attorneys at Berg Injury Lawyers have protected the rights of people who were hurt by a variety of dangerous products, including medical devices, household items, and vehicular components.

We know what it takes to win, and we don’t settle for less than what our clients deserve. It’s our goal to help you get maximum compensation so you can move forward with your life. Contact us today for a free consultation. We’re ready to put our experience to work for you.


A Free Guide to Traumatic Brain Injuries

by Staff Blogger | March 2nd, 2020

When you hear the phrase traumatic brain injury, you probably imagine a terrifying incident where someone is rushed to an emergency room and treated by a team of physicians. Though these injuries are most definitely terrifying, they often happen with far less attention than most might assume. But that doesn’t make them any less dangerous.

A concussion, for example, is considered a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). These injuries happen every day across the U.S., and while many of them are treated appropriately, others go undiagnosed and untreated. This means that thousands of people are unknowingly suffering from the consequences of traumatic brain injuries.

The Importance of Brain Injury Awareness Month

This all leads us to Brain Injury Awareness Month, which is observed every March. By knowing how brain injuries happen and how to recognize them, we might be able to prevent the suffering that victims face after a TBI.

We’ve created a free guide in honor of this yearly observance. However, the information we provide is useful any time of year. We encourage you to take a couple of minutes to learn more about:

  • The causes of brain injuries
  • Warning signs that a brain injury has occurred
  • Long-term consequences of brain injuries
  • Legal options for sufferers of brain injuries caused by others

Hopefully, you’ll come away from our guide with helpful insights that you can use to start the conversation about brain injuries with others.

Free TBI Guide

What to Do If You Suspect a Brain Injury

If you suspect that you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury, see a doctor immediately. Treating a brain injury soon after it occurs can lessen some of the effects that sufferers experience. Even if you suspect that an injury might not be severe, never forgo medical treatment. Go to an emergency department immediately and make sure to tell the doctor or nurse how your injury occurred.

When Your Brain Injury Is Someone Else’s Fault

When brain injuries are caused by the actions of another person, whether intentional or not, the injured person has the right to consider their legal options. TBIs can be costly, painful, and disabling. If your injuries were someone else’s fault, you should not have to pay the price for their negligence. Filing an injury claim can help you get the money you need from the at-fault party’s insurance company.

If you want to discuss your case with an experienced California brain injury lawyer, contact Berg Injury Lawyers today to schedule a free consultation.

We want to hear more about your injury, so we can assess your situation and help you learn more about your legal options and how much money you may need to treat your TBI-related injuries both now and in the future.

How to Handle Medical Bills While Waiting for a Settlement

by Staff Blogger | February 24th, 2020

There’s no getting around it—auto accidents are expensive. Between ambulance rides, overnight stays in the hospital, surgical procedures, and weeks, months, or even years of physical rehabilitation, the costs associated with a crash can be enormous. To make matters worse, many auto accident victims suffer disabling injuries that make it difficult or impossible for them to work. That means no paychecks until they recover, even while they’re racking up bills.

For victims and their loved ones, there’s no price too high for getting potentially lifesaving medical treatment. But when the bills arrive, they may simply be unable to afford them. Many victims pursue compensation through the other drivers’ insurance policies, but they often find out that adjusters are uncooperative and drag their feet when it comes to getting their claims moving.

That means even the most obvious situations of negligence-related crashes can leave innocent victims watching their bills pile up while the negotiation and legal processes play out. At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California auto accident attorneys work hard to get fast results for our clients, but we also know that crash-related expenses don’t wait for claims to settle.

These Resources Can Help You Stay on Top of Your Healthcare Costs

If you don’t have enough money on hand to start paying your medical bills after a crash, you still have many options while waiting for a settlement. This includes:

  • Your health insurance coverage—If you have health insurance coverage, you can use it to pay for many of your crash-related expenses, including the ambulance ride, in-patient treatments, and physical rehabilitation. It’s important to tell the hospital about your health insurance coverage as soon as possible, so that crash-related costs can be filed and billed correctly.
  • Medicare or Medicaid coverage—If you’re enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid, you may be able to use that coverage toward your crash-related expenses. However, you also may be required to pay back that money if you’re later awarded a settlement.
  • Subrogation—Subrogation is a process in which the insurance provider of the injured party pays their expenses under the assumption that it will be compensated for those payments after the victim receives a settlement. Subrogation is commonly used when it’s clear that the victim wasn’t at fault for the crash and has a strong basis for a compensation claim.
  • Your own auto insurance—Typically, victims are paid by the at-fault drivers’ insurance companies after crashes. However, victims may be paid directly by their own insurance policies if they purchased supplemental coverage, such as med pay coverage or personal injury protection. These policies often pay regardless of who was at fault for the crash.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, we’ll not only work to help you get fair compensation for your crash-related expenses, but we’ll also help you find the best way to stay on top of your bills while you wait for your settlement check. We know that you have enough to deal with already, and unpaid bills piling up is the last thing you should have to worry about while you’re recovering from your injuries.

When You Call Us, We Have One Goal in Mind: Getting You Paid

Being able to rely on other sources of income and payment methods for your medical bills can give you peace of mind during a difficult time. We understand that waiting for a settlement isn’t easy. The real solution comes when you get the compensation you deserve. Simply put, if you were hurt in a crash that wasn’t your fault, you should be paid fairly by the other driver’s insurance company.

Our California car accident attorneys work hard on ensuring victims like you get full compensation, and we don’t waste time when it comes to collecting evidence, building cases, and negotiating with the insurance company. But we also know that personal injury claims often take months to resolve due to uncooperative adjusters.

The sooner you contact us after your crash, the sooner we can start building your claim—and the sooner your case will either settle or go to court. That means less time waiting for a settlement and wondering how you’ll pay for your medical bills. Contact us today for a free consultation and to find out how we can help.


What’s the Difference Between Workers’ Comp and Social Security Disability?

by Staff Blogger | February 17th, 2020

Your job is your livelihood. When an injury or illness makes it difficult or impossible for you to work, you need a way to replace your lost paychecks. Thankfully, there are two primary ways that people in California can get replacement income when they’re unable to work: workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability (SSD).

Because both are designed to give you money when you’re not capable of earning paychecks, it’s easy to get them confused. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we help people who suffer disabling injuries and illnesses get the compensation they need to replace lost pay checks when they can no longer work. That means helping them get SSD benefits.

Each injured worker’s case is unique, and some people’s injuries or illnesses mean they may be eligible for only one type of benefit. Others may be eligible for both. Our California SSD lawyers have years of experience building claims for disabled workers. That includes appeals when applications are denied.

Get the Facts on Workers’ Comp vs SSD Benefits

Laws related to workers’ compensation benefits and SSD benefits are completely different. They also have vastly different application requirements. Knowing the differences between these two types of compensation is important for anyone who can’t work and needs a way to replace their lost paychecks.

To learn more, check out the infographic below.

We’ll Review All Your Options and Help You Make the Right Decision

In addition to workers’ compensation benefits and SSD benefits, California residents also may apply for the state’s own disability benefits. However, a recipient can’t receive them at the same time as workers’ compensation benefits.

It’s also important to note that both state disability benefits and workers’ compensation benefits are designed to be temporary; SSD benefits are designed to be more of a long-term income replacement. In fact, some SSD benefits recipients receive checks for the rest of their lives, or until they transfer to Social Security retirement benefits.

Because of the complexities involved with all three types of benefits, it’s essential to have an experienced law firm on your side that is looking out for your best interests when applying for the benefits you need.

Trust Our Experience and Track Record of Success

Both workers’ compensation benefits and SSD benefits are notoriously difficult to get and retain. Both the Social Security Administration and the California Division of Workers’ Compensation have strict criteria for approving claims from injured workers. And when they deny initial applications, successfully appealing their decisions is often an uphill battle.

Our team has years of experience and a thorough understanding of how state and federal bodies process claims and appeals. When you contact us, we’ll review the facts of your injury. We’ll then determine how it affects your ability to work and the best course of action for you. Contact our California SSD attorneys today for a free consultation.


Pros and Cons of New Vehicle Technology

by Staff Blogger | February 10th, 2020

When you read an article about self-driving cars or interactive dashboards, what do you feel? Do automated vehicles fill you with dread, or are you excitedly anticipating the day when you can get in your car and have it drive itself?

As a law firm that pays close attention to road and vehicle safety, we know that these advances will present both good and bad consequences for all of us.

In other words, there are pros and cons of new vehicle technology, which we should all consider as we cruise into this brave new world. Before we dive into the potential downsides of emerging technologies, let’s focus on the perks.

Pro – A Safer Commute

More than 35,000 people die in vehicle crashes every year in the United States. For each of those deaths, even more motorists are involved in nonfatal crashes that often result in injuries. The biggest upside of improved vehicle technology is the potential to reduce the number of overall crashes.

This is exactly what the U.S. Department of Transportation and countless road safety advocates are hoping automated systems will accomplish. Officials also hope that automation will bring less traffic and improved fuel efficiency in vehicles.

Pro – A Better Experience for Motorists

From smart displays on windshields to brain wave technology that helps drivers avoid crashes, new vehicles could offer features we can’t even imagine. Many of these innovations might dramatically improve our experience behind the wheel and, in some cases, improve our health.

For example, vehicle technology could not only get better in diagnosing problems with vehicles, but also diagnosing the health of drivers. Ford is currently developing technology that monitors a driver’s heart health through sensors placed in the seats of its vehicles.

Con ­– The Growing Pains of New Technologies

Over the years, manufacturers have made safety features available that were anything but safe. For example, seatbelts and airbags are some of the most basic but useful features in vehicles. However, several incarnations of the technologies have posed a threat to vehicle occupants. The latest examples of potential dangers include Takata airbags that could cause shrapnel injuries when deployed and allegations of Honda seatbelt defects.

Automation is likely to become integrated into our vehicles slowly as cars edge toward being fully autonomous. During this transition, we will need to learn how to operate new semi-autonomous systems. That could present an entirely new learning curve for drivers. So far, manufacturers and safety officials don’t seem to know who will be responsible for educating buyers on how to operate semi-autonomous vehicles safely.

Con – Smart Cars are Vulnerable to Hackers

An increasingly digital world has made our lives easier in many ways. But we are also more vulnerable to fraud and hackers. As our vehicles become more reliant on technology, they too are susceptible to hackers.

Cybersecurity concerns prompted a 2015 recall involving 1.4 million vehicles after researchers discovered that it was possible to disable vehicles’ brakes and steering capabilities while they were on the highway. Hackers have already found ways to access the information of drivers and even shut down some engines remotely.

Understanding Your Rights as a Consumer

You likely have your own list of pros and cons of new vehicle technology. If you’re skeptical of automakers’ capacity to address some of our biggest road safety challenges, we understand your reservations. Manufacturers often make mistakes that have serious consequences for all of us.

Consider some of the fatal defects in vehicles over the past few decades. From GM’s faulty ignition switches to Takata’s defective airbags to the top-heavy design of Ford’s Bronco II, manufacturers haven’t always inspired hope in car buyers.

When a defective product harms a consumer, the consumer have the right to hold the manufacturer accountable through product liability claims. These claims don’t just offer consumers a pathway to compensation; they also make the market safer for others who might purchase potentially dangerous products.

Schedule a Free Case Assessment with Berg Injury Lawyers

The good news is that you have the right to hold a manufacturer accountable if they sell you a product that causes you harm. If you have been sold a defective vehicle or vehicle part, we encourage you to contact the team at Berg Injury Lawyers.

Our California defective product lawyers have years of experience handling these claims. We believe that unless consumers take a stand against negligent manufacturers, companies will continue to sell dangerous products to buyers. Don’t pay the price for a manufacturer’s mistakes.

How to Pick a Safe Nursing Home

by Staff Blogger | February 5th, 2020

If you’re considering how to pick a safe nursing home, then you or someone you love likely needs specialized care. Choosing the right facility is a big decision, and you’re right to be taking it seriously.

What to Consider When Searching a Nursing Home

Just like any other important decision in life, choosing a nursing home requires forethought and research. Our free guide covers the many factors you’ll need to consider when creating your shortlist of potential candidates. Once you have that field narrowed, you can dig into what each offers and compare that with your requirements.

There are qualities you should look for in an ideal nursing home and warning signs that could signal inadequate care. Our guide provides a list of both, so you’ll be prepared to recognize a facility that is as safe as possible.

How to Pick a Safe Nursing Home

Signs that a Nursing Home Isn’t Up to Par

Some nursing homes are staffed by people who aren’t good at their jobs. Staff members can not only overlook the needs of their residents, but also abuse or neglect them. Warning signs that a loved has been improperly cared for include:

  • Poor hygiene
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Bruises, cuts, or fractures
  • Drastic changes in mood or personality
  • A noticeable fear of staff members or other residents

When you notice these signs in your loved one at their nursing home, you should act immediately by contacting a nursing home abuse attorney. Your lawyer will help you plan the next steps to get your loved one proper care and begin the process of seeking compensation for what they’ve suffered.

Contact Berg Injury Lawyers with Any Questions

The safety of your loved one is obviously your biggest concern. To make sure a nursing home is one you can trust, you’ll need to do some research and identify warning signs of a dangerous nursing home. The more thorough you are when making your decision, the better the chance you’ll find a facility that is right for you and your loved one.

Unfortunately, some people only realize how poor a nursing home’s care is after a loved one suffers an injury. If this sounds familiar and you’re considering taking legal action, don’t hesitate to contact an attorney immediately.

We hope our tips help you pick a safe nursing home. If you or your loved one suffers from emotional or physical abuse or neglect in a nursing home, you should know that you have options.

3 Types of Products That Are Potentially Dangerous

by Staff Blogger | January 27th, 2020

Whether it’s a product you purchased at a store, an item you use at work, or even a medical device that’s implanted into your body, you expect the products you come into contact with to be well-tested and safe. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. In fact, there are a nearly endless number of products that are potentially dangerous.

How does this happen? In an effort to save money and ensure their products get released, manufacturers sometimes skip important testing phases, putting consumers at risk. Manufacturers might poorly design a product, use inferior parts, or improperly label a commonly used good.

3 Types of Products That Might Harm Consumers

Safety advocates have linked many types of products to serious injuries, illnesses, and complications, such as:

  • Medical devices—Because medical devices are often surgically implanted, their risk level is high. Devices in this category include birth control implants, joint replacements, pacemakers, hernia and transvaginal mesh, and many more.
  • Military earplugs—3M provided the U.S. military with a double-sided earplug for many years. The evidence now shows that these earplugs are defective and don’t provide enough protection. As a result, thousands of servicemembers have developed hearing loss and tinnitus.
  • Dangerous chemicals and substances—Builders used asbestos in construction for decades, and it’s still used in some applications. There’s a strong link between asbestos and mesothelioma, a deadly lung cancer. Other dangerous chemicals sold to consumers include glysophate and certain types of flame retardants.

This is only the beginning of the dangers that consumers face. There are many other types of products that are potentially dangerous, too. From defective automobile parts to improperly labeled children’s toys, we all encounter dangers when manufacturers don’t get it right.

What To Do If You’ve Suffered a Product-Related Injury

To avoid buying dangerous products in the first place, you can find a helpful resource in the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. However, you might have already purchased a dangerous product. If that’s the case, you should speak to a product liability attorney immediately.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California defective product attorneys are waiting for your call, and we’re ready to fight for your rights to compensation. If you suffered an injury due products that are potentially dangerous, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team now.   Contact us today for a free consultation.


Stay Safe on Super Bowl Sunday

by Staff Blogger | January 27th, 2020

Whether or not you’re a football fan, Super Bowl Sunday is always a big event on social calendars around California. And unfortunately, it’s also one of the worst days of the year for motor vehicle accidents. Between drunk, fatigued, and distracted drivers, your risk of being hurt is far higher than usual on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to a 2013 study conducted by the Automobile Club of Southern California measuring traffic accidents over the course of 10 years, there is an average of 75% more alcohol-related crashes on Super Bowl Sunday than on all the other Sundays in January and February. And that number is only growing. The same organization conducted a similar study back in 2004 found a 41% increase in alcohol-related crashes on Game Day.

That’s why the team at Berg Injury Lawyers put together these tips. They’re useful for anyone attending a Super Bowl party this year, whether it’s at the home of a friend, family member, or coworker, or at a bar or restaurant.

Tips for Super Bowl Party Hosts

Car accidents aren’t the only potential danger awaiting partygoers. If you are planning on having friends and neighbors over to watch the Big Game, follow these tips to protect your guests, and protect yourself from liability if someone gets hurt.

  • Make sure the path to and from your door is clearly lit and free of ice and snow. This will prevent guests from slipping or tripping.
  • Take everyone’s keys at the door. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk, but it can be hard to follow that rule when some of your guests make an Irish exit and leave without saying goodbye.
  • Politely make sure each guest knows how they are getting home. If at the end of the night it looks like a guest may be unsafe to drive, have alternate arrangements ready. That might mean calling a cab or allowing them to stay until it’s safe for them to drive home.
  • Make sure non-alcoholic drink options are available, and never serve alcohol to an underage guest. If an underage guest has alcohol at your home and gets into an accident driving home, you could be liable.
  • Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter to allow everyone time to sober up. This is also a good time to bring out coffee and dessert.
  • Be aware of any food allergies your guests might have. Some food allergies are airborne, meaning the person does not have to eat or touch the food but only needs to be in the same room to experience symptoms.
  • Always clean your knives and cutting boards between each step when preparing food to avoid contamination.
  • Cook all meat to the proper internal temperature. Don’t leave food sitting at room temperature for more than two hours, even if that means ferrying it back and forth between the table and the fridge or oven.
  • If you are a pet owner, keep your dog in another room throughout the party. Even if your dog is normally friendly, you may not know how they will react to a large number of unfamiliar people in their territory or unexpected loud noises like the cheers at a touchdown.

We’re Here to Help After Super Bowl Injuries

Big events like the Super Bowl offer many opportunities for injuries to occur. Injuries might come in the form of car accidents, slips, falls, dog bites, or any other unexpected event. Knowing how they happen and how to prevent them is the best way to protect yourself from liability and injury. But when others are less careful than you, you may still end up injured due to someone else’s negligence. When that happens, we want to help.

Contact the team at Berg Injury Lawyers today for help getting the compensation you deserve after your accident. We will gather evidence proving you were not at fault for your injury. We’ll also calculate how much you may be owed. We’ll factor in your medical bills and all other injury-related damages, including emotional harm or lost income.

Our track record of success helping injured victims get full compensation spans decades, and we’re ready to put our experience to work for you and your loved ones. Contact us today for a free case review.
