Van nuys motorcycle accident attorney
When a motorcycle accident occurs the motorcyclist often suffers severe and catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are a common occurrence on Southern California's crowded roads.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by:
- Reckless drivers
- Drivers who speed
- Drivers who are distracted by their cellphones (i.e. texting, talking, typing, dialing, emailing, or surfing the internet)
- Drivers who adjusting the radio
- Drivers who are eating/drinking while they drive
- Fatigued drivers
- Drivers who violate safety laws
- Drivers who are distracted
- Drunk Drivers
- Road hazards
When somebody is injured or loses a loved one due to another person's careless, negligent driving, the careless, negligent driver should be held accountable by paying compensation for the harm he or she has caused. The type of compensation that an injured car accident victim is entitled to recover from a careless, negligent driver includes:
(a) Compensation to pay medical bills;
(b) Compensation for the income he or she due to the car accident;
(c) Pain and suffering;
(d) Compensation to pay his or her rental car bill
Insurance companies often treat motorcycle accidents different than car accidents because many people mistakenly believe that all motorcyclists are reckless drivers and that using a motorcycle is so dangerous that a person assumes the risk of serious injuries whey he rides a motorcycle. Insurance companies anticipate that many jurors will have these anti-motorcyclist prejudices. As a result, insurance companies often fight motorcycle accident cases and refuse to settle them even when the motorcyclist did nothing wrong. Thus, if you or a loved on is involved in a motorcycle accident it is important to hire an attorney who has experience representing motorcycle accident victims and their families.
