Ontario Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
If a motorcycle wreck left you seriously injured and someone else was to blame, work with an Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer to get a comprehensive settlement to cover your losses.
Say you’re driving along diligently on your motorbike and a car suddenly comes from seemingly nowhere, colliding with your smaller vehicle. In the state of California, you can follow a course of action to seek compensation for any damages resulting from such a scary scenario. That settlement should take into consideration everything from medical expenses and hospital visits to repairing your personal property and acknowledging your pain and suffering.
If you’ve been through such an experience, you don’t need to handle the legal recourse on your own. You can team up with an Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP who can walk you through what comes next. That means determining fault for the motorcycle wreck, filing a personal injury claim, and knowing how much that claim is worth (because the insurance company will almost certainly try to lowball you).
Comparative Fault in California Motorcycle Accidents
With a reputation for being dangerous, motorcyclists can get a bad rap following a wreck. This is significant in the state of California, where comparative fault is used to determine negligence in accidents with injuries. By joining forces with an Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer early on, you can minimize the percentage of fault put on you and increase the value of your settlement.
Here’s an important statistic to keep in mind: In multiple-vehicle motorcycle accidents, two-thirds of the accidents are caused by the other vehicle violating the motorcycle’s right-of-way.
Don’t get painted as the “bad guy” just because you were riding a motorcycle. You deserve to have your case examined and presented in the fairest light possible. With the blame no longer pointing toward you, you can win the payout that accurately reflects your part in the wreck.
The Value of Your Motorcycle Collision Claim
The first order of business is determining fault in the accident where you suffered losses from someone else’s negligence. Next, we will assess the comprehensive value of your claim. It’s imperative that you have an appropriate figure in mind, as insurance companies will come in with settlement amounts much lower than deserved.
In fact, lowballing you is what they do to stay profitable. Many people settle for payouts well below what they should receive for their damages and losses after an accident.
What you pay out of pocket isn’t limited to the direct costs associated with medical bills and repairing or replacing your bike. Your losses also include the pain and suffering, emotional toll, and income lost while you’re unable to work. Your compensation should take into account all of these associated expenses.
