San Diego Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
There are almost an endless number of ways a person, lawfully riding a motorcycle can be injured by another driver.
The motorcyclist might have been rear-ended; another driver could have pulled in-front of the motorcyclist, the other driver could have ‘t-boned’ the motorcyclist, or the other driver could have unlawfully interfered with the motorcyclist’s lawful ability to ‘lane-split’. (Lane splitting was effectuated into law on January 1, 2017 and codified as California Vehicle Code (CVC) section 212658.1).
Every Second Counts
The hours immediately following a motorcycle accident can be the most critical to the failure or success of the case. If you or a loved one has been injured or a loved one has been killed, contact us as soon as possible for a FREE consultation. Every second that passes is crucial. Evidence or Police Reports that can help you/your-case can be lost, memories fade, witnesses that could have helped your case can move or become unavailable, and if there were any video cameras that happened to record what happened, their footage might be recorded over or lost.
Additionally, the insurance company for the other driver is likely going to be pressuring you for a statement (which will be recorded on their system), and they will likely encourage you to accept a payout sooner than later, if for no other reason other than so they can move onto the next file in their system.
As motorcycle riders don’t have the same surrounding protections that automobile drivers have, the injuries sustained by the motorcycle rider can be the most severe. Also, there may be injuries the motorcyclist might suffer in an accident that aren’t always obvious at the time of the accident.
The injuries to the body a motorcyclist might suffer can include, but not be limited to:
- Head wounds that are easily discovered by a visual inspection of the rider’s head
- Head injuries that are not discoverable upon visual inspection
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Bone breaks
- Injuries to the spinal cord
- Post-traumatic event emotional stress
The financial injuries the motorcyclist may have suffered may include, but not be limited to:
- Cost to repair or replace the motorcycle
- Rental car/alternative transportation costs (past/present/future)
- Medical and/or health-care costs (past/present/future)
- Physical therapy costs (past/present/future)
- Chiropractic costs (past/present/future)
- Lost wages (past/present/future)
- Diminished ability to earn an income in the future (if/when applicable)
