Inglewood Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Located in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County, Inglewood provides proximity to the big city (and the water!) without as much hustle and bustle as downtown L.A. As such, it is not only a great place to live, but also a great place to ride a motorcycle; traffic exists, but it’s not nearly as congested as it is in the heart of the city.
However, while Inglewood may be a quiet city by L.A. standards, it’s not one that’s always safe for motorcyclists. At the office of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers, our Inglewood motorcycle accident lawyers have seen the devastating effects of motorcycle crashes on victims and their families, and want to help you if you’ve been involved in a crash or lost a family member in a motorcycle accident.
Who Pays After an Inglewood Motorcycle Crash?
After a motorcycle accident, determining who will pay for your accident and the damages you’ve suffered is very important, especially as you’ll be under pressure to initiate the claims process as soon as possible. In California, drivers who cause accidents are responsible for paying for them. As such, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another party, such as another driver, you will file your claim directly against this driver’s liability insurance policy, which is required in the state of California. Depending on the type of insurance you have, you may be able to bring a claim against your own insurance instead of/in addition to the other driver’s.
What Types of Damages Are Recoverable?
Motorcycle crashes can result in numerous injuries and damages. In addition to serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, and bone fractures, damages that a motorcyclist may sustain include:
- Medical expenses;
- Property damage expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Future costs associated with the accident and injury; and
- Noneconomic losses, such as pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
Our Inglewood motorcycle accident lawyers will advocate for your right to compensation for 100 percent of your losses, both present and future.
Can I File a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit?
If you are involved in a crash and suffer injuries and you can prove that the accident would not have occurred but for the actions of the other driver (or another negligent party), you may indeed file a motorcycle accident lawsuit. However, not that bringing forth a lawsuit is typically a last-resort option; lawsuits are expensive, time-consuming, emotional, and the outcome is impossible to accurately predict. As such, rather than rushing into litigation, we recommend attempting to reach a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurer. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are skilled negotiators with years of experience representing injured motorcyclists in settlement negotiations.
