Motorcycle Accident Attorney Serving San Bernardino for 26+ Years
Have you been hurt in a motorcycle accident in San Bernardino, California? If so, it’s likely you have suffered serious injuries, which are common in motorcycle accidents, including brain injury, spine injury, amputation, and more. Unfortunately, although you may not be at fault for your accident, you may have a hard time getting compensation for your injuries because courts can be hard on motorcycle riders. However, an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you get fair compensation after your accident. Please call The Paris Firm at (909) 469-5127 to discuss your case today.
Compensation for your Motorcycle Accident is our #1 Priority
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another, you need a personal injury lawyer who will fight for you. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of your losses. We will 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) 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.
2) 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, baby boomers and commuters.
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.
A motorcycle isn’t a toy for our clients – it’s their lives
The Paris Firm understands motorcycle riders, their love for their machines, and the thrill of the open road. We understand the severity of injuries that riders can suffer when they get into a bad wreck. Motorcycle accidents can cause painful and debilitating injuries, from road rash to fractures to injuries requiring amputation of limbs.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes
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 driver may be at fault in a motorcycle accident, it may be harder for motorcyclists to demonstrate that they are not at fault for their accident. Unfortunately, San Bernardino County is especially prone to a higher number of motorcycle accidents because of the number of commuters to Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic Brain injury (TBI)
- Spine injury
- Amputation injury
- Internal organ damage
- Serious abrasions (road rash)
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.
