San Bernardino Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycles are involved in only a tiny fraction of all traffic crashes -- but when they do crash, statistics show that they are much more likely to be deadly. Because motorcyclists travel without the steel cage that a car provides, they are protected only by their gear, their wits and the skills of the motorists around them. According to the federal Department of Transportation, motorcyclists in 2006 were 35 times more likely to be killed in an accident than drivers, and eight times more likely to be injured. And according to research from the University of Southern California, drivers are at fault in the majority -- two-thirds -- of all multi-vehicle motorcycle accidents.

Unfortunately, none of this stops insurance companies from exploiting anti-motorcycle prejudice to avoid paying what they owe. Motorcycle accident injuries can be very expensive, especially if the rider suffered brain damage or another catastrophic injury. Because insurance companies don’t like to pay expensive claims, some of them are willing to blame the rider for the accident, even if the evidence shows otherwise. Riders may also be blamed for failing to wear protective gear, even though California law requires only a helmet. If this is happening to you after a serious motorcycle accident, don’t hesitate to call a San Bernardino motorcycle accident attorney.

If you were hit on a motorcycle or scooter by a careless driver, you have the right to recover compensation from that driver for your injuries and costs. In a motorcycle accident lawsuit, you can claim all of the costs of the accident, including medical bills, repair or replacement costs for the bike and income you lost if you could not or cannot work. You can also claim compensation for the non-financial but very real injuries the accident caused, including a wrongful death, permanent disability or another serious injury.
