Motorcyclists are often severely injured in a roadway crash because they do not have the same structural protections as a car or other type of vehicle. Riding on a motorcycle does not give the rider any type of cushion to absorb the impact of a crash like a driver in a passenger car would have. Many of the common injuries motorcyclists suffer from in collisions can be debilitating or even fatal.

Broken bones, dislocated and sprained joints, internal bleeding, and punctured organs are also very common. The impact from a car or from hitting the ground can also cause severe spinal cord injuries that can lead to paralysis. Even though helmets are required, traumatic brain injuries still happen; and, without proper treatment a TBI can cause lifelong pain and suffering.

Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

First, insurance companies will try to avoid paying for your claim or attempt to pay you less than you need to cover your medical debt and medical needs. The injuries sustained in a California motorcycle accident often result in massive medical bills, including ongoing treatment. Without a skilled attorney looking out for you and your family, the insurance company will try to settle your damages claim with you for as little as possible, leaving you to shoulder the burden of medical costs, both past and present, and other losses.

Secondly, motorcycle accident injuries also cause lost income in the present and future. If you are unable to return to work due to the injuries you sustained, you are entitled to compensation for past lost wages as well as the loss of future earnings. If your loved one was fatally injured in a motorcycle wreck, their pain and suffering, and other financial and emotional hardships must also be compensated.

If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, our experienced California motorcycle accident lawyers can make sure the insurance company pays for the full extent of the injuries  sustained, lost wages, medical bills and more.

Traffic reports suggest motorcycle riders are often at fault, but in reality, more than half of all motorcycle accidents are the fault of a passenger vehicle driver.
