Fontana Motorcycle Accident Attorney

After a motorcycle accident, innocently injured motorcyclists are often left with extraordinary medical bills, extensive rehabilitation and therapy, injury accommodations, pain, and lost wages. Often victims no longer have a vehicle or their injuries may prevent them from driving which makes it hard to get to and from doctors’ appointments and therapy sessions.

Fontana motorcycle accident attorneys know how difficult motorcycle accident injuries and damages can be for victims and their families. They are motorcycle accident victims’ advocates who regularly help injured motorcyclists and their family members get back on their feet again after an accident has turned their lives upside down.

Insurance companies

At fault drivers’ insurance companies often contact injured victims soon after the accident to interview them about the accident and the injuries sustained. Injured motorcyclists are under no obligation to speak with those insurance companies and it is usually in the motorcyclists’ best interests to consult with an attorney before doing so. Insurance companies record these phone calls and they may act concerned about the victims’ injuries and damages when speaking to them, but their real motive is to get the victims to say something against their own interests. They may use motorcyclists’ dialogue to show that their injuries are not as serious as claimed or that their lives are not as severely impacted as claimed. They may also look to use something that motorcyclists say to place blame on them for the accidents.

Motorcycle accident claim value

There are a number of things that affect the value of a motorcycle accident claim including the following:

  • Liability – Is liability clearly on the defendant? Is there any room to pin even a fraction of liability on the motorcyclist? If so, that may bring down the value slightly, but only if there are legitimate questions of fault and even then, being partially negligent does not bar an injured party from recovery altogether.
  • Injuries – Typically, the more serious the injuries, the more the claim is worth. Determining seriousness includes medical bills, potential future medical complications due to the injuries, permanent or long term disability, the likelihood of a full recovery, required future medical care, the ability to work, and whether or not there is a change in earning capacity due to the injuries sustained.
  • Defendants’ conduct – When it comes to jury trials and insurance negotiations, the defendants’ conduct can be important. Juries tend to be harder on defendants who caused injuries by exercising egregious conduct and lack of care for the safety of others. Sometimes punitive damages may be awarded to punish defendants. If the insurance companies think that the defendants’ conduct may result in a large jury award, they may be more likely to offer generous settlements to avoid risks.
  • Wrongful death – In cases of fatal injuries, certain surviving family members may seek recovery for their own losses due to losing their loved one.
