If you or a loved one is hurt in a motorcycle accident, contact Michael Rehm as soon as possible.
The Dangers of Bike Riding
There is a widely held misconception that motorcycle riders are reckless drivers. In reality, many accidents involving motorcycles are not the fault of the motorcycle rider. 106 victims were injured or killed in motorcycle accidents in 2018. Many of these accidents likely could have been avoided. Drivers in larger vehicles sometimes do not see motorcycles. The driver may also be distracted by music or a cell phone. Other things can also cause motorcycle accidents, including poorly maintained roads or defective parts on the motorcycle. Sometimes, responding officers and insurance companies will automatically find fault with the biker. Quite often, the responsibility lies with someone else.
Why You Need a Motorcycle Attorney
Accidents on a motorcycle are often more severe than any other kind of automobile accident. Because you are not protected by the frame of a car, you are more likely to have more severe injuries, including head and brain trauma, broken bones, road rash, spinal cord injury, and paralysis. You will likely need extensive medical care immediately after the accident, as well as continued medical care during your recovery. These bills can add up quickly.
A motorcycle lawyer will have the experience to ensure you are compensated for your medical bills and other expenses, including lost wages and pain and suffering. Do not rely on an insurance company to offer you a settlement that may not be fair to you. In 2019 alone, there were 40,748 civil lawsuits filed related to auto accidents in California, and some of these obviosuly include motorcycle accidents. Consulting with a lawyer will ensure you receive everything you are entitled to.
