Riverside Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Contrary to popular belief, other drivers are as likely to cause a motorcycle to wreck as motorcyclists themselves are. Many drivers fail to notice a bike until it is too late, leaving the biker injured and facing steep medical and repair bills.
A Riverside motorcycle accident lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove, LLP will treat your case with the attention and respect it deserves. When you suffer thanks to the poor choices of others, you deserve to be compensated for the damages their mistakes incur.
An Attorney Can Protect You Against Bias
Motorcycle riders have a negative public image, and this bias can be detrimental when filing a personal injury lawsuit. Motorcyclists are often unfairly viewed as inherently reckless and may encounter bias from the police and insurance companies. Worse still, an opposing attorney may attempt to take advantage of unjustified stereotyping and portray you in this way.
To make sure that this bias does not result in you being treated unfairly, our attorneys will do everything possible to present the facts as they actually are:
- Gather evidence demonstrating who caused the accident
- Demonstrate why the accident occurred and that you were not at fault
- Document how your injuries have impacted your life
Just because you are riding on two wheels does not mean that you have fewer rights. It does mean, however, that you may need to work harder to protect them.
Common Causes of Bike Accidents
There are many potential causes of motorcycle crashes, and by determining what caused your crash, we can identify the negligent parties:
- Another driver not seeing the motorcycle due to inattention or distracted driving
- Defective motorcycle parts
- Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes and other hazards
Medical Care and Insurance Denials
Your motorcycle insurance company should provide you with a claim number that can be used by your doctor for billing purposes. Typically, your own insurance company will pay all or some of your bills while your case is ongoing and a final settlement is pending.
If you are told that you need a procedure by your doctor, only to have the insurance company say they will not pay for it, call our office to speak with a Riverside motorcycle accident lawyer. You have the right to receive proper medical care, and we will fight to ensure that you have access to it.
Discuss Your Injuries with a Lawyer
You should be compensated for all injuries related to your accident. Even minor injuries like road rash should be included in the settlement calculations. You don’t want to leave money on the table, and we can insure that everything is accounted for:
- Medical bills
- Time missed from work
- Repairs to your bike
- Long-term rehabilitation or physical therapy
- Lifestyle changes necessitated by your accident
- Pain and suffering
You also need to let us know if you were wearing a helmet since California does have a universal helmet law. Wearing one can reduce your injuries, so you could be considered partially negligent if you were not doing so.
