LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO AND BAKERSFIELD MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Motorcycles fail to provide the same level of protection as automobiles due to the lack of seatbelts, doors, airbags, and other safety devices. Therefore, motorcycle riders are more susceptible to serious bodily injuries than car accident victims. Consequently, victims may have to deal with costly medical bills, loss of income, as well as emotional pain, physical pain, road rash and mental suffering.
In order to recover damages, a victim must file a personal injury claim. While this may be a long and complex process, the injured motorcycle accident victim may be entitled to recover compensatory damages, including lost wages, lost earning capacity, property loss, loss of consortium, medical bills, emotional distress, medications, scarring, physical therapy, disfigurement, and in some cases even punitive damages.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, please talk to a motorcycle accident attorney before talking to the other driver's insurance company. In many cases, liable insurance providers will do everything in their power to avoid paying out the full amount injured victims are owed. Keep in mind that under California’s rule of pure comparative negligence, even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
At the Law Office of Joseph A. Younes, we are passionate about helping victims of motorcycle accidents and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. If you have sustained injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident, you have the right to hold the guilty party responsible and get the justice you deserve.
