If you are involved in a serious California motorcycle crash, it is imperative that you retain the services of an experienced California motorcycle accident attorney. The injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash are often severe and can lead to medical bills that far exceed the amount offered by the negligent party’s insurer. You may also experience loss of income over a lifetime as well as long-term rehabilitation expenses. Only an attorney with vast knowledge of California motorcycle crash litigation is qualified to recover the true value of your damages and loss.
When you are involved in a motorcycle crash, the only protection you have is your helmet and any protective clothing. While helmets reduce the severity of head injuries in many cases, they do not prevent them. Sudden jolts or head rotation can lead to serious traumatic brain injury. A poorly designed or improperly fitting helmet offers little protection compared to a quality full-faced model. Other injuries may be spine and neck injures, broken bones and damaged internal organs.
Finding the Right California Motorcycle Accident Attorney
After an accident involving injury or death, the insurance representative may act like he has your best interest at heart as the victim or loved one of a victim. The truth is, his interest is in saving the insurance company from paying a large award. The insurance agent is a professional when it comes to getting a low-ball offer accepted.
With a dedicated motorcycle accident attorney on your side you can avoid all the intimidation and trickery dealt by the insurance company, while the attorney works to get you the compensation you truly deserve
Sadly, some who suffer, following a motorcycle accident, become victims a second time by retaining an attorney that is quick to settle with an insurance company that offers far less than the true value of a case. The costs of a serious motorcycle accident can be astronomical over a lifetime, but some “settlement mill” attorneys are looking for the quick payday. The insurance agents know these lawyers well and are delighted to see them representing a plaintiff. That is why finding the right California motorcycle accident attorney is critical.
You may be able to receive a substantial award for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more by filing a motorcycle injury claim against the insurer of the negligent party responsible for your injuries. Remember that settling with the insurance company is not your only option despite what they want you to believe.
If you are involved in a motorcycle crash, even if no other vehicle is involved, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you feel fine at the time, you could still be seriously injured. Do not refuse help from the first responders. They are the time and date stamp for when you injuries were received. As soon as you are capable contact a qualified California motorcycle accident attorney. Do not discuss your case with anyone, referring all inquires to your lawyer.
The best attorney to represent you will be willing to thoroughly investigate the events leading up to the crash. He or she will interview witnesses and obtain police reports, determine road conditions and even inspect the motorcycle for possible defects.
