Lake Elsinore Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident Lawyers
- October 8, 2016
The roads around Lake Elsinore are perfect for riding. In fact, Southern California has gotten an excellent reputation for having some of the best roads in the world for riding a motorcycle. It does not matter if you are on the I-15 or on some country road in the middle of nowhere, the perfect breeze and the bright California sun will go with you. There is so much to see, however, that other drivers can become distracted. They might switch lanes without seeing you in their blind spot, or pull out of parking space thinking the coast is clear. Maybe someone is texting on their phone while approaching a light, and because you are not in a large vehicle ahead of them they fail to see you. All of these are common causes of accidents when you are on a bike. In fact, negligence is the number one cited source of motorcycle accidents. So what do you do when you are faced with a negligent driver and you have sustained an injury from your encounter? Call an attorney.
How Do Attorneys Help?
Not many people really know just how expensive an accident, even a very moderate accident, can be for the people involved. Being on a motorcycle can make you feel more free, but it also makes you more vulnerable and susceptible to injury. If you are in a crash, you will be taken to a hospital to be given medical care. You might see a few doctors, go through surgery, or have any number of things done to get you back out on the road. You will probably be given medication and a hospital bed for a few days if your injuries are bad enough. If you are lucky enough to have just bumps and bruises, you will still have to go to the emergency room to be checked out by a doctor. All of these things, even the emergency room, will cost you money. For most people, that is money that they did not plan on spending.
Now let’s pretend that your accident was severe enough to keep you from work for a few weeks. Not only do you have hospital bills piling up, but you are unable to make the money that you would use to pay for them. If you are injured badly enough, you probably will have to enroll in some kind of physical therapy program too, which costs money. An attorney can help you fight the parties responsible for your injuries to get you compensation for all of these expenses and lost wages. It is like that your family will go through a certain level of mental suffering too throughout the ordeal. Getting all of these bills and having someone go through an accident is stressful for anyone. Attorneys can get you compensated for this pain and suffering as well.
