Yorba Linda Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident
In recent years, the casualty rate from motorcycle accidents has gone up and up. Between 2001 and 2008, 25,000 people were killed due to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident, and 1.2 million received emergency room care for injuries.
When an accident occurs, the results can be devastating, especially for those who are riding in traffic on a bicycle or motorcycle. Injuries from an accident out on the road can be severe and can include:
- spinal cord injuries
- brain injuries
- broken bones
- internal injuries
Along with all of this comes damage to the victim’s vehicle, which can leave them without reliable transportation. Yes, the aftermath of a serious accident is traumatic and shocking. The fact is that motorcyclists are much more likely to be killed or injured on the road than any other type of driver.
How an Experienced Lawyer Can Help After An Accident
Right after an accident, insurance companies often put together a financial settlement offer for the victim. Though the compensation offered may be tempting, the truth is that insurance companies want accident victims to settle quickly (thus closing the book on the case, with no recourse after the settlement is agreed to), for the smallest possible amount.
Why should you retain an experienced legal team, like the experts at the El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers in Yorba Linda, after an accident? Talking to an insurance company without a lawyer after an accident can open you up to vulnerabilities, like taking blame for the accident. Anything you say to the insurance company could keep you from getting the compensation you deserve, so it’s important to retain a legal group that knows the laws and knows the road so they can protect your rights and fight for you.
