How to Prove Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
To recover damages for your injuries, you need to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident. Our attorneys will help you establish that the defendant breached a “duty of care” owed to you as a fellow motorist on California roads. Your attorney will also argue that this breach of duty directly contributed to your injuries. This breach of duty is called “negligence,” some of the most common examples of which include:
- Texting and driving
- Making illegal left turns
- Unsafely changing or splitting lanes
- Drunk driving
Damages You Can Recover
From overwhelming medical bills to lost income, the expenses stemming from motorcycle accidents can quickly spiral out of control. These expenses are called “economic damages” – those you can concretely establish by presenting evidence like copies of bills, receipts, and pay stubs. Your attorney will present evidence of your concrete losses to an insurance adjuster and, if necessary, a judge or jury, to place a monetary value on your damages. You may also be entitled to recover “non-economic” damages, which are intangible losses like emotional and psychological distress. Non-economic damages can be difficult to prove, but an experienced personal injury attorney will know how to craft an argument to help you recoup these types of losses.
How A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Help You
We’ve worked with insurance companies long enough to know that they are not motivated to help accident victims. In fact, they will pay out as little as possible on a claim to protect their bottom lines. Because of this, it’s vital to involve a personal injury lawyer at the outset of your case so you can improve your chances of securing a favorable settlement. If you hire us, we will work with you to collect your medical records, pay stubs, repair receipts, and other concrete evidence to put a monetary value on your claim. We will use all of this evidence to present your claim to the adjuster assigned to your case and will argue for the highest amount of compensation possible. We will never settle a case for less than what you deserve, so if our negotiations with an insurer are unsuccessful, we will take your case to trial.
