Southern California is a motorcycle rider’s paradise. With year round great weather, miles upon miles of beautiful coastal roads, and day trips into nearby mountains; it’s no surprise that cycle riding is a popular pastime for countless locals. But hopping on a Harley and hitting the open road does come with some caution attached to it because those same roads are also full of car and truck drivers who don’t always give motorcycle riders the safest of passages at all times. Riding a motorcycle may be a great lifestyle, but it also comes with a certain level of risk attached to it as well.
Riders accept this risk, knowing that the possibility of severe injuries is real due to limited protection that riding a motorcycle offers. Throw in inattentive drivers, road hazards, construction zone challenges, bad signage and other obstacles, and it’s easy to see why motorcycle riders are extremely vulnerable to injuries ranging from a bad case of road rash to broken bones and internal injuries, and in some cases, death.
While every motorcycle accident is different, when it is caused by the careless or negligent actions of another person, the rider can hire a motorcycle accident attorney and pursue a claim for damages including lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills.
An experienced attorney can help a plaintiff work through complicated issues such as accident reconstruction, expert witness testimony, settlement negotiations and other difficult situations. The bottom line is to protect your legal and financial rights, assuring you the maximum possible compensation for your injuries which will help you on your road to recovery.
