A key area in which Paramount motorcycle/bicycle accident lawyers provide crucial assistance to motorcyclists and bicyclists injured in roadway accidents caused by someone else’s negligence is in optimizing compensation. The reality of a motorcycle or bicycle accident is that the injuries sustained in this type of collision can be severe.

A motorcyclist or a bicyclist may not be able to return to work directly after an accident.

Obtaining compensation for an injured biker, of either type, is another area in which Paramount motorcycle/bicycle accident lawyers assist injured individuals.
As is the case with other types of losses, a personal injury lawyer utilizes appropriate tactics to ensure that an injured motorcyclist or bicyclist is covered with compensation not only for current lost income, but also for this type of economic loss reasonably expected to be incurred in the future.
One final area in which Paramount Motorcycle/Bicycle Accident Lawyers assist injured clients is in the realm of what are known as punitive damages. In California, punitive damages represent a different type of monetary payment made to injured motorcyclists or bicyclist.
Punitive damages are awarded in lawsuits when a determination is made the conduct of the person responsible for an accident was particularly reckless. For example, if an automobile driver was significantly above the BAC limit, drives through an intersection against the right-of-way, and strikes a bicyclist appropriately in the intersection, that conduct may be deemed particularly egregious.
In addition to providing added monetary compensation to an injured person, punitive damages are also designed to punish the reckless actor that caused the accident in the first instance. Punitive damages also serve to send a message to other individuals to take care to avoid this type of conduct in the future.
