Sacramento Area Personal Injury & Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Only about 3% of licensed motorists in the State of California are motorcyclists, but motorcyclists are involved in about 9% of all motor vehicle accidents. Additionally, motorcyclists are much more likely to be severely injured in accidents; cars and trucks obviously provide much more protection for drivers and passengers than do motorcycles. These critical injuries often involve permanent disfigurement and scarring, brain damage, or paralysis. Unfortunately, in the vast majority of accidents involving automobiles and motorcycles, the driver of the car is responsible. Usually the driver fails to see the motorcyclist when they are making turns or changing lanes.
We Can Help
If the other driver is responsible for your accident, we will petition their insurance company for the maximum amount of liability possible to cover medical bills and, if necessary, the cost of continued care. Once this sum is reached either through litigation or settlement, we will then deal with your own insurance company in an attempt to collect compensation through your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for the remainder of the damages. As a last resort, we can help you file a lawsuit directly against the other driver and attempt to levy their assets on your behalf.
After a severe motorcycle accident, your focus should be recuperation and minimizing pain and suffering. You do not need to be spending your time talking to hostile claims adjusters. Let your experienced motorcycle accident attorney act aggressively on your behalf and navigate the complex labyrinth of insurance law and regulation for you.
