In recent years, there has been an expansion in motorcycle ridership. More and more individuals are using motorcycles not only as their primary source of transportation but for recreation as well. Even though there have been numerous public awareness campaigns that remind drivers to watch out for motorcyclists and share the road, serious motorcycle accidents are on the rise.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, turn to our personal injury lawyers at Dixon & Daley, LLP, near Whittier, California. For more than 40 years, our firm has been helping injured motorcyclists seek compensation and justice from the negligent driver who caused their injuries. We work tirelessly to see that your case is thoroughly investigated and the compensation you obtain suits your best interests and needs.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Due to the exposed nature of a motorcycle, a rider is prone to sustaining more serious and life-threatening injuries than the negligent driver inside a large vehicle. We pride ourselves on handling the legal issues of motorcycle accident cases for victims so they can focus on healing from a range of severe injuries such as:
- Closed head injuries and concussions
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash (severe lacerations and abrasions to the skin and muscles)
- Broken bones
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Unfortunately, some insurance companies attempt to place the blame on a motorcyclist for the accident. Even though it may have been clear that the other driver was negligent, an insurance company may equate riding a motorcycle with “assumption of risk,” meaning that by riding a motorcycle, a rider acknowledged that he or she was putting him or herself at risk of injury.
When handling cases, our firm does not permit this attitude toward injured clients. We aggressively fight against insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve, showing how the other driver was negligent through evidence and careful examination of the accident.
