Motorcycle Accidents in California
Every year, thousands of motorcyclists in California are left with injuries as a result of vehicle collisions. In many instances, innocent riders are severely harmed as a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent. Speeding, distractions, and even impairment are just some of the most common causes of crashes that take place in our state. Regrettably, these and other negligent actions often leave victims with severe spinal cord injuries, head trauma, and other injuries that require medical care.
After suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may have legal options available to help you move forward. An injured party may file a claim for damages in civil court against the party or parties they believe is at fault for their injuries and damages.
Personal injury lawsuits are filed so that the injured party can seek financial compensation for medical costs, lost earnings, vehicle repairs, and various other economic and non-economic damages that they face. The vast majority of personal injury lawsuits filed after an automobile accident involve claims against the at-fault driver. In most cases, the insurance company of the at-fault motorist will be responsible for compensating the injured person.
