26+ Years of Experience as a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Serving Santa Ana
Have you been hurt in a motorcycle accident in Santa Ana? Due to the inherent lack of protection a motorcycle offers motorcycle accidents are generally serious – even low speed incidents. Unfortunately, even though 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. Serious motorcycle accidents are part of every day life in Santa Ana, like this one involving a 51 year old rider who was struck by a truck.
An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get medical attention and fair compensation after your accident. Call The Paris Firm in Chino Hills now at (909) 325-6185 to discuss your case.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims
If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Santa Ana, CA, you may be able to receive compensation for the serious consequences of that accident, including:
- Reduced quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Past, present, and expected medical bills
- Loss of earning potential
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.
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.
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 yield right of way
- Failure to notice motorcycle
- Distracted driving
- 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.
Our clients are passionate about their motorcycles
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. 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.
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 lawyer who will fight for you. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will aggressively pursue full financial compensation for the extent of your damages. 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) 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 and baby boomers.
Drivers of other cars often say they didn’t see the motorcycle. Often, the truth is that they were just not paying attention. 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.
