Motorcycle crashes are among the most dangerous accidents on the highway. Though car wrecks are the most prevalent, motorcycle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities due to the fact that the motorcycle drivers and passengers have very little protection and typically collide with much larger vehicles. With the boom in SUV’s in the California area the odds of being in an accident with an SUV is greater than ever. Although the property damages in a motorcycle accident are usually lower than automobile accidents, medical costs are usually higher. Motorcycle related accidents involve a number of complex issues including questions of jurisdiction between Sacramento, Roseville, Stockton, Davis, Woodland, Chico, Redding or Marysville. For example what would happen if an automobile collides with a motorcycle in Sacramento, but the driver of the car is from Chico and the injured motorcyclist is from Roseville? Which court is the case filed in? Complex questions like this require the best legal representation possible. Using a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer is your best course of action.
Without a lawyer, you are relying on the insurance company to decide the amount of compensation you will receive for your motorcycle accident. The goal of the adjuster is to give you as little money as possible. A lawyer on your side will keep adjusters honest and insure that you recover as much money as possible for your motorcycle accident case, not one penny less. When choosing an attorney to represent you, you should look for a lawyer that has represented many injured parties in motorcycle accidents in California.
