26+ Years of Experience as a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Serving Fullerton
Have you been hurt in a motorcycle accident in Fullerton? If so, it’s likely you have suffered serious injuries, which are common in motorcycle accidents, including severe road rash, brain injury, spine injury, amputation, and more. Unfortunately, although you may not be at fault for your accident, you may have a difficult time getting compensation for your injuries because courts can be especially tough on motorcycle riders. Motorcycles have become a popular form of commuting due to the terrible Southern California traffic, but motorcycle accidents can be especially damaging or even fatal. If you were injured, or if a family member died while riding a motorcycle it may be difficult to know what to do next.
However, an experienced Fullerton motorcycle accident attorney can help you get medical attention and fair compensation after your accident. Call The Paris Firm in Chino Hills now at (909) 469-5127 to discuss your case.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims
If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Fullerton, CA, you may be able to receive compensation for the serious consequences of that accident, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Past, present, and expected medical bills
- Reduced quality of life
In addition, a wrongful death lawsuit brought on behalf of a loved one killed in a motorcycle accident may lead to additional or different compensation. The compensation that is appropriate in your case depends on the circumstances of your accident.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
There are many potential causes of motorcycle accidents, but almost all of them are the result of a driver error on the part of either the motorcyclist or the other driver (which is a passenger car almost 90% of the time). These include:
- Failure to notice motorcycle
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Illegal maneuver
- Driving under the influence
Although either the driver or the rider may be at fault in a motorcycle accident, it may be harder for motorcyclists to demonstrate that they are not at fault for the accident.
Common Injuries Associate with Motorcycle Accidents
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Amputation injury
- Internal organ damage
- Serious abrasions (road rash)
- Traumatic Brain injury (TBI)
- Spine injury
Because of the severity of these injuries, motorcycle accident victims will often receive less compensation than they need to pay for medical bills and make up for lost wages.
Our clients love their motorcycles
The Paris Firm understands motorcycle riders love their machines and the thrill of the open road. We also understand the severity of injuries riders suffer when they get into an accident. Motorcycle accidents can cause painful and debilitating injuries because of the lack of protection that a car offers, from road rash to fractures to injuries requiring amputation of limbs.
Compensation for All Motorcycle Accident Damages
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another, you need a personal injury attorney who will fight for you. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will aggressively pursue full financial compensation for the entire extent of your losses. We’ll seek damages for your pain and suffering, current and future medical expenses, lost wages and lost future earning capacity, and more.
It is important to select an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you for two reasons:
1) Judges and juries are often biased against motorcyclists. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will present facts to address this bias. We will show that today, most motorcyclists are safe, responsible drivers, not risk takers. In fact, the fastest growing demographic groups among motorcycle owners are women and baby boomers.
2) Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, including brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, burns, and multiple fractures. Our lawyers understand how to handle cases involving life-altering injuries. We will work to maximize the amount of financial compensation you receive.
Drivers of passenger vehicles often say they did not see the motorcycle. Often, the truth is that they were just not looking. Drivers have a responsibility to be aware of all other vehicles on the road, including motorcyclists. If they fail to do so and the rider gets hurt, our motorcycle injury attorneys will hold them liable.
