San Diego Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle accident deaths accounted for approximately 14 percent of all highway fatalities in 2008 alone. With the popularity of recreational motorists or riders increasing year by year, fatalities and injuries also are increasing. Typical causes of motorcycle accidents can include:
- Severe weather, or damaged / unkempt roads
- Negligent driving
- Distracted drivers
- Blind intersections
Motorcycle accident injuries can be more severe than most car accidents injuries, because motorcyclists have so little to protect them compared with passengers in cars. Though protective gear such as helmets and shields has been required of motorcyclists to reduce head injuries or surface burns, motorcyclists cannot protect themselves from other inattentive drivers. No matter how advanced or experienced a motorcyclist may be, accidents still happen and they can be catastrophic.
Insurance companies often try to shift liability for an accident to the motorcycle rider. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not concerned with your injuries, nor are they concerned with what is best for your well-being. Most insured motorcyclists do not realize this until the medical bills come and there is no way to pay for them. Working with an experienced San Diego motorcycle accident attorney can help you get the compensation that you need and deserve to properly recover and rehabilitate.
