California Motorcycle Accidents
Every year, thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts hit the open road in California to enjoy the freedom of riding two wheels, totally in control. With so many beautiful landscapes to enjoy along California roads, it’s no wonder that our state remains one of the most popular places in the country for motorcyclists. Unfortunately, hundreds of them will be injured in motorcycle accidents– often due to someone else’s negligent behavior or reckless driving. In fact, California motorcycle accidents occur more commonly than motorcycle accidents in any other state.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
When someone you love is injured in a motorcycle accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. After all, the unprotected nature of a motorcycle often leads to quite severe injuries, such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, paralyzation, and even death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a motorcycle rider is 8 times more likely to be injured and up to 37 times more likely to die than any other type of driver in a highway accident.
Even worse, these accidents are often the fault of other drivers. The NHTSA cites drivers failing to yield when turning left as the number one cause of motorcycle accidents. This means that these terrible injuries usually stem from driver negligence, which motorcyclists can’t control.
Getting Compensation After Your Motorcycle Accident
After a motorcycle accident, the last thing you want to worry about is getting the insurance company to pay. Unfortunately, costs can quickly accumulate. Medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and motorcycle repair costs pile up, often while you lose wages during recovery. Despite the responsibility to pay, insurance companies often drag out settlement negotiations, delaying desperately needed payments.
Luckily, you don’t have to fight with the other driver or either insurance company on your own. A California motorcycle accident attorney can fight for the compensation you deserve, while you focus on recovering with your loved ones. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Wakeford Gelini have years of experience successfully maximizing accident compensation for clients, and we would love to do the same for you.
