Understand Your Rights
Being injured in a Orange County motorcycle accident is a serious matter. One day, you’re riding down the road as the driver or passenger on a motorcycle and the next,you are injured. It’s now important to focus on your recovery. We appreciate the nuances of personal injury law in the state of California. Within two years, you will need to file a lawsuit against the defendant as well as any applicable insurance carriers. In most cases, this would involve the owners and drivers of the at-fault vehicles and their insurance companies. Sometimes we help clients who were hurt by other causes, that may have been caused by another factor, such as a product liability case. For example, a motorcycle accident might result from a tire blowout or a mechanical failure on the victim’s vehicle or on the defendant’s vehicle.
Fighting for You
People who are hurt in motorcycle accidents deserve justice. This may not come in the form of a criminal conviction against the defendant, but it could come in the form of compensatory damages in the civil court system. We can help you collect all of the facts of the case, especially involving the motor vehicle crash and establishing how the defendant’s negligence caused your injuries. When we assist victims with orange county motorcycle injuries, we also know that the defendant’s insurance company will try to prove that your injuries were not their fault. They will try to argue that they should not bear any liability for the medical bills, lost wages, vehicle damage or loss, and pain and suffering that their client’s negligence caused. However, remember, the burden of proof rests on the plaintiff, which means that you need the services of a qualified civil trial attorney.
All Personal Injury Cases Aren’t the Same
When choosing an expert in California motorcycle accident cases, please do not base your decision on advertising alone. Some lawyers are more focused on helping you settle your case out of court. They have little or no experience with personal injury trials, which can take years to prepare for. They may also not have the financial resources to get all of the expert testimony and medical records essential to proving your case, which may require convincing a jury. These attorneys may recommend that a motorcycle accident with your type of injuries accept a lower settlement than you deserve. If this occurs, you will be left with very little after they deduct their fees and costs. You should sit down with an attorney and make the most of the free consultation. Be sure that you’re choosing someone with civil trial experience and a specialty in motorcycle accident claims. We are ready to help you handle your accident claim today, but contacting us does not obligate you to sign any paperwork or to become our client.
