Sherman Oaks Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident Lawyers
For Sherman Oaks residents, riding a motorcycle or bicycle is an activity that’s possible and enjoyable year-round. Plenty of sunshine, mild weather, and a beautiful landscape all contribute to the need for open air and the desire to commute outside of the confines of a standard motor vehicle. But riding can be much more dangerous than driving, and motorcyclists and bicyclists are at an increased risk of collision. At the law offices of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers, our Sherman Oaks motorcycle and bicycle accident lawyers are advocates of motorcyclists’ and bicyclists’ rights and want to help you if you’ve been injured in a crash.
WHO WILL PAY FOR MY INJURIES AFTER A MOTORCYCLE OR BICYCLE ACCIDENT IN SHERMAN OAKS?
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle or bicycle accident, you’ve probably suffered more than just physical losses – you’re likely coping with financial losses, too. These losses can quickly pile up, ultimately totally thousands of dollars in the form of medical bills, property damage costs, and lost wages.
You deserve compensation for these losses. Because California is an at-fault car insurance state, you can file a claim directly against the at-fault party or their insurer for damages. Our lawyers can help you to determine who’s to blame, as well as gather evidence to prove their negligence and hold them liable for your harm.
WHAT TYPES OF DAMAGES ARE RECOVERABLE?
Once the at-fault party has been identified, you can bring forth a claim against them or their insurer for the full value of the losses that you have suffered as a result of your motorcycle/bicycle accident. This includes compensation for your:
- Medical expenses;
- Rehabilitation expenses;
- Property damage expenses;
- Lost wages, both present and future; and
- Noneconomic losses, such as pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
Note that your ability to recover the full amount of compensation that you deserve will be affected by multiple factors, including the insurance coverage available, the degree of fault of the responsible party (your damages award can be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault if you contributed to the accident), and the degree of your injuries. Additionally, remember that you only have two years from the date of your accident to bring forth a civil action, and that if you wait longer than two years, you can be permanently barred from recovery.
