Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Committed To Your Recovery
The victims of motorcycle accidents often face significant challenges in the weeks and months following a collision. Protected by little more than a helmet and leather clothing, victims tend to suffer severe injuries, leading to heavy medical bills, disability and possible long-term difficulty in maintaining a job.
If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should not be forced to pay for another motorist’s negligent driving. At the The Ellis Firm, APLC, our skilled personal injury attorneys will help you pursue a lawsuit designed to reimburse you for the total losses you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability and the loss of enjoyment of life. To schedule a free consultation with one of our motorcycle accident attorneys in Temecula, San Diego or El Centro, California, call 951-289-0628.
Helping You Pursue The Maximum Possible Compensation
All too often, insurance companies resist paying a fair settlement to motorcycle accident victims, instead offering settlements that are much smaller than the case is worth. At the The Ellis Firm, APLC, we will carefully examine your case and help you get a better idea of how much compensation you should expect for your injuries. Then, we will aggressively pursue the insurance companies to achieve the most favorable possible result.
Insurance companies know that when an injured victim is acting alone, the victim is unlikely to have a full understanding of their rights. They are also unlikely to go to trial to assert those rights. When you work with the The Ellis Firm, APLC, however, insurers know you mean business. We will actively negotiate with the insurance companies to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. If necessary, we will resolve the issue at trial.
How Others’ Negligence Contributes To Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle crashes often involve the negligence of other drivers. Motorist negligence can take many forms, including:
- Not paying attention (distracted driving)
- Misjudging bikers’ speed or distance
- Failing to check blind spots before making lane changes
- Turning left in front of a biker
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Speeding or driving too fast for the conditions
Factors such as poor road design or defective bike parts can also make other parties liable.
Injuries Resulting From Motorcycle Accidents
Sadly, many motorcycle accidents are fatal, resulting in wrongful death claims. Bikers lucky enough to survive may suffer from debilitating injuries such as:
- Paralysis or other spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Crushed bones or fractures
- Extensive soft-tissue damage
- Severe burns
- Road rash, which may necessitate skin grafts
- Head injuries and brain damage
Our lawyers are skilled at navigating serious injury cases. We know how to pursue a full financial recovery that takes into account the devastating toll these injuries have on every aspect of your life.
