There are millions of motorcycles currently on the road in the United States. As their popularity increases, so will the number of accidents and fatalities associated with their use. California has a high rate of accidents and fatalities, and in most cases, the fault isn’t that of the motorcycle rider.
Motorcycles are exposed, so when an accident occurs, the injuries can be catastrophic, if not fatal. While we cannot prevent the accident from occurring, our Chico personal injury attorneys can help those who are injured recover compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages associated with the accident itself.
While motorcycle riders are engaging in a high-risk activity, that lack of protection does not excuse any negligence of other drivers on the road. Most drivers don’t notice motorcycles, hear them or even see them changing lanes. When you or a loved one is injured in a motorcycle accident, you will encounter extreme medical expenses, loss of income, and the serious emotional and physiological harm that comes with these types of accidents. Therefore, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, and the guilty party is responsible to pay it.
