Driving on US roads isconsidered one of the most dangerous things Americans do every day. Millions of car accidents happen in the country every single year and this increases the chances of anyone who directly participates in road traffic being involved in a car accident at some point. Such unfortunate accidents can range from a little fender bender to something with fatal consequences.

Even though Americans have been driving less in the past two years because of the Covid-19 pandemic, car crash fatalities have still surged, making it an ongoing public health crisis.

Regardless of what the outcome of a car crash is, always make sure you receive medical attention afterward but also call a lawyer.

Following a car accident, victims are left to deal with injuries, paperwork, and huge medical bills. Having a lawyer by your side to guide and support you throughout this difficult process and build a strong case for you is therefore invaluable.

In this post, we look closely at some of the reasons why getting a lawyer is a must after a car accident in the USA.

Prove Liability for Injuries Sustained

Proving that another’s negligence caused your injuries is usually one of the most difficult parts of a car accident injury claim. This is a complicated yet important part of a car accident claim because persons injured by other people’s actions have the right to fair compensation.

Severe injuries are also sustained in motorcycle accidents, which is quite a popular means of transportation in the US, especially in sunny cities like Orange Country in California. This type of accident can be very drastic as motorcyclists lack nearly all of the protective coverings and safety features of an automobile.

When such accidents happen, the parties involved tend to shift the blame and make it hard to prove who exactly is responsible for your injuries. For this reason, you should immediately find experiencedOrange County motorcycle accident attorneys to collect the evidence and determine who exactly is liable for your injuries.

This way, they’ll be able to proceed by building a strong argument on your behalf and defending your right to compensation. To obtain the needed evidence, the lawyer will consult medical experts who can validate the seriousness of your injuries and gather all of your medical records, reconstruct the accident scene, obtain the accident report, and interview witnesses.

Determine the True Value of Your Injuries

Another complex part of many car accident claims is receiving compensation that is representative of the true value of your claim and the damages you’ve suffered.

As we previously mentioned, a motorcycle accident is generally more devastating and causes far more serious injuries than a regular car crash, and if you want the insurance company to pay out the settlement you deserve and not a cent less, you must find a lawyer to handle your claim and know the true value of it. Motorcycle accidents are also very common in states like Colorado and in 2018, theColorado Department of Transportation reported 48 fatal accidents and 50 fatalities in Denver alone.

Choosing thebest motorcycle accident lawyer in Denver is therefore essential to help make sure you receive compensation for all of your losses and not accept any settlement offer that doesn’t cover the full extent of those losses.

Meet All Legal Deadlines

Throughout the process, there are several deadlines that you have to meet. The best-known deadline is thestatute of limitations or the period in which you can file a case with the trial court.

Your insurance policy may have a set period in

Speed Read: A garage-built Ducati 996 café racer and more

custom motorcycle news 190 745x497 1

The latest café racers, flat trackers, and electric scooters.
We kick things off with a feel-good story of a botched Ducati 996 custom job, rescued by a talented garage builder. Then we look at a dazzling Yamaha SR500 flat tracker from 20-year-old Moritz Bree, a dustbin-faired Honda Dax from K-Speed, and a BMW CE 04 scooter from Deus ex Machina.

Ducati 996 café racer by Jaron Hall
Ducati 996 by Jaron Hall Most people would balk at the idea of customizing a Ducati 996, but Utah-based garage builder Jaron Hall’s work on this 996 is nothing short of noble. That’s because when Jaron got his hands on the 996, it was in dire need of saving.

The Ducati’s previous owner had tried to turn it into a scrambler, so it came to Jaron with no fairings, a hacked subframe, and a smorgasbord of sketchy parts. Working after hours (he has a marketing day job), and taking on the entire build solo, Jaron turned the mongrel 996 into a high-class Italian café racer.

Rolls-Royce ‘Models of the Marque’: the 1910s

Rolls Royce Silver Ghost 04

Of all the famous nameplates borne by Rolls-Royce motor cars since 1904, few are as celebrated, significant, evocative and enduring as the ‘Silver Ghost’. Formally launched in 1906 as the 40/50 H.P., it was the first model to be awarded the soubriquet of ‘the best car in the world’ that Rolls-Royce retains to this day, setting unmatchable standards for performance and reliability, proven in the era’s toughest road trials. It was also a stupendous commercial success, with almost 8,000 examples built in the UK and US over an 18-year period – an unimaginable product lifespan in the modern age. That so many Silver Ghosts still survive in full working order – and, indeed, regularly perform the same feats they achieved more than a century ago – is a lasting monument to Henry Royce’s engineering genius.

Early beginnings

By 1906, just three years after its foundation, Rolls-Royce was already something of a victim of its own success. Demand for its motor cars was such that its line-up had quickly expanded from the original twin-cylinder 10 H.P. to include three-cylinder 15 H.P., four-cylinder 20 H.P. and six-cylinder 30 H.P. models. Henry Royce had even produced the first ever V8 passenger motor car, known as the ‘Lega limit’ since the 3.5-litre engine was governed to keep it below the 20mph speed limit then in force in Britain – only three of these were ever made, and it remains the only Rolls-Royce model of which no examples survive. This proliferation of models reflected a trend across the luxury automotive sector, as competing manufacturers chased an ever more finely segmented client base.

However, for Rolls-Royce, it caused major manufacturing headaches, since many parts were not interchangeable between models. The problem was compounded by Henry Royce’s entirely laudable policy of continuous improvement; his constant adjustments and refinements went all the way down to the smallest components. This created variations between – and even within – production series, to the extent that often only a handful of individual motor cars would be entirely identical.

Simplify Production

As with almost any manufacturing process, more complexity and variability meant increased costs. This was anathema to the highly astute, commercially driven Managing Director, Claude Johnson. Having decided radical change was needed, he proposed the marque should focus all its energies on producing just one model. Charles Rolls enthusiastically agreed, but insisted it should be positioned at the top end of the market, where Rolls-Royce was already gaining a reputation as the very best motor car available. Though a ruthless perfectionist and tireless innovator, Royce was also a pragmatist. He saw the logic of his colleagues’ single-model approach and duly produced a completely new motor car, the 40/50 H.P.
