Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
California is one of the absolute best places for motorcycle riders. Terrific weather and scenery make it possible for riders to get out on the open roads almost any day of the year. However, it is still a very dangerous place for motorcycle riders. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to know what to do to ensure that you get the compensation you need and deserve.
As an attorney who has handled personal injury cases for over three decades, I know how to prepare the strongest possible case for full and fair compensation from the insurance companies. I will work hard to make your experience with the system a positive one. I have a long history of obtaining results for my clients, and I am confident that I will help you find a reasonable solution to your current legal concerns.
Protecting Your Right To Compensation
The most important thing you can do after you have been injured in a motorcycle accident is to seek qualified medical attention. You need to be able to promptly document that your accident caused your injuries and the significance of those injuries. Otherwise insurers may contest your claims.
Some of the most common injuries I have seen connected to motorcycle accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries, even if using a helmet
- Broken bones after riders are thrown from motorcycles
- Amputations from being trapped under or between vehicles
- Scarring from contact with pavement
These injuries can often result in extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Dealing with the expenses associated with this care can be difficult when you are out of work. Insurance companies may try to talk you into settling your claims hastily so that you have some financial resources available to pay for medical and living expenses. Under financial pressure, motorcycle victims sometimes do not take into account the long-term economic and lifelong pain and suffering losses that may be involved in their injuries.
Before engaging in any discussions with the other parties involved, talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about your case. This is the only way that you will be able to truly understand what your claim may be worth.
