Motorcycle Accidents Take a Grim Toll on Riders and Passengers
A University of Southern California study from a few years ago found that three out of four motorcycle accidents involve a collision with another vehicle. Two out of three of those accidents resulted from a driver failing to recognize a rider’s right-of-way by switching lanes without looking, turning into a rider’s path or other negligent actions. It goes without saying that a rider has little to protect him or her in a collision with a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds, and these accidents often result in devastating injuries such as the following:
In addition to the considerable physical trauma of the injuries, injured riders and their families must also contend with the emotional trauma of knowing that the accident could have been prevented if the driver had considered the consequences of his or her negligence. Riders and their loved ones also suffer financial and psychological trauma as medical bills climb into the tens of thousands of dollars and collectors threaten legal action on unpaid bills.

Before you sign any documents offered by the at-fault party’s insurance company or their legal team, have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney Riverside review them. In the days following an accident, it is common for the driver’s insurance company to contact the injured rider and his or her family and offer a check in exchange for a signature. Signing this paperwork waives a rider’s right to seek damages and prevents him or her from getting help to pay bills, receive ongoing medical care, replace lost wages and provide for his or her family. If you are being pressured to sign something you do not fully understand, call us today at 888-848-5084 and schedule a consultation. We will protect your rights at all times and work hard to help you receive the court damages or settlement that you and your family deserve.
