Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Work to Get Victims Appropriate Compensation

Fear of being unable to pay medical bills or concern about lost wages should never stand in the way of your recovery after a motorcycle accident. Our motorcycle accident attorneys advocate to get you appropriate compensation for any past, present, and future damages you may experience as a result of your accident.

Some examples of damages our personal injury attorneys have been able to recover for victims of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Lost wages –victims who are unable to work as a result of their accident could be entitled to recover full compensation for any and all lost income
  • Medical bills – compensation can be sought for any past accident-related medical expenses such as specialist appointments, surgeries or procedures, hospitalization, medications, rehabilitation, imaging, and diagnostic testing. Compensation can also be sought for future medical expenses such as post-surgical care, physical or occupational therapy, and the need for home health care assistance.
  • Pain and suffering – compensation can be recovered for the physical or emotional pain you experience after an accident
  • Lost future earnings – changes in careers may happen as a result of your accident. If a career change after a motorcycle accident results in the significant loss of future earnings, you may be able to recover financial compensation for the loss of future wages.
  • Property damage – cost of replacement or repair of your motorcycle and/or other property that was damaged as a result of an accident that was the fault of another individual
  • Permanent disfigurement and/or disability – Physical and cognitive impairment may happen as a result of injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. These injuries can be so severe that they prevent you from being able to care for yourself, enjoy favorite activities or hobbies, or working in a chosen career. Accident injuries can also result in disfigurement that results in permanent disability.

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Help Collect Necessary Information and Documentation for Claims

Very specific information and documentation is needed to help support your claim for compensation after a motorcycle accident. Gathering that information on your own can be a daunting task that is not only time consuming, but emotionally and physically draining. Our motorcycle accident lawyers can assist in helping you collect the documentation and information you need to support your personal injury claim after a motorcycle accident.

Some of the information and documentation that our motorcycle accident attorneys can help you collect include:

  • Appropriate medical records that document the severity of your injuries
  • Testimony and statements from family members, friends, and co-workers that support a claim for pain, suffering, or mental anguish
  • Personal journals that document specific examples of how the accident has affected your day-to-day life
  • Statements, documentation, and testimony from doctors, medical specialists, and other healthcare workers that outline treatment needed to help in your recovery and discuss any physical/emotional pain you are experiencing as a result of the accident
  • Pay stubs or self-earning reports
  • Accident reports such as witness statements and police reports
  • Receive Assistance with a Wrongful Death Claim After a Motorcycle Accident in California
  • In the event that the negligence or recklessness of another driver causes a motorcycle accident which results in a fatality, the family can seek compensation for the loss of their loved one. Of course, no amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one. However, recovering full compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one can help ease any emotional pain and financial burden you may experience.

Some examples of the type of compensation families in California may be able to recover after a loved one was wrongfully killed in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Lost financial support – lost wages, medical benefits, pensions, or retirement that happen as a result of the death
