Types of Motorcycle Accident Claims our Modesto Attorneys Handle
Our attorneys have investigated numerous motorcycle accident cases in California, including accidents between motorcycles and cars, tractor-trailers, buses, pedestrians and other motorcycles. Throughout the process of investigating numerous claims, we have come across and handled accidents caused by the following:
- Alcohol or drug impairment
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Improper lane changing
- Improper lane splitting
- Dangerous or defective auto parts or vehicles
- Illegal turns
- Blind curves
- Other traffic violations
One of the most important aspects of pursuing a motorcycle accident claim is determining what went wrong and who was at fault. Potentially liable parties include automobiles, other motorcyclists, commercial truck drivers, motorcycle manufacturers, or the government entities responsible for maintaining safe roads. Our attorneys will investigate your claim and pursue it against the proper parties to ensure those responsible for your accident are held accountable to you. In building your case, we will gather evidence of negligence on the part of the potentially liable party. The evidence will depend largely on the cause of the crash. For instance, if you were rear-ended by a driver who ran a red light, your attorney may hire an accident reconstructionist to show a judge or jury exactly how the crash occurred. On the other hand, if the driver who hit you appeared to be impaired at the time of the accident, your attorney may order a toxicology report to confirm whether – and to what extent – illegal substances caused the wreck.
Recovering Compensation for a Modesto Motorcycle Accident
If you or a loved one are suffering from lingering motorcycle accident injuries, our Modesto attorneys are here to fight for compensation on your behalf. We will investigate your accident, analyze the facts, and pursue possible compensation for:
- Past, current and future medical bills;
- Lost income;
- Reduced earning potential;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Permanent physical limitations; and
- Psychological trauma.
In addition to compensation for economic damages, such as medical bills and reduced earning potential, our Modesto motorcycle accident attorneys are also experienced in pursuing claims for non-economic damages on behalf of our clients. Non-economic damages include emotional distress and pain and suffering. When applicable, we may also choose to pursue a claim for punitive damages in cases where the other party acted in a particularly reckless or egregious manner.
