Los Angeles Motorcycle accidents constitute a significant percentage of personal injury lawsuits. A disproportionate number of motorcycle riders are involved in accidents compared to people driving cars or trucks. Not only are motorcycles more likely to be involved in collisions than other types of vehicles, but the injuries are generally more severe. Without the protection of seatbelts as Truck or car drivers have, motorcycle riders are far more likely to be thrown from their vehicle and hit the ground violently. This can result in broken bones, road rash, head injuries, damage to muscles and tendons, brain damage, permanent disability and even death.
Victims of motorcycle accident may be entitled to recover for their injuries and loss, including medical costs, pain and suffering and lost wages. Victims’ families may also be entitled to compensation for “loss of consortium” claims. Even if you believe that you are partially at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to recover for your losses. If you have been in an automobile or motorcycle accident it is important to speak with an experienced Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Hiring an attorney early on will enable your attorney to begin gathering the evidence and information necessary to effectively settle your case.

Speak with an Attorney Before speaking with the Insurance Company
Do not make the mistake of solely relying on the insurance companies to compensate your loss. Even if the insurance company seems sympathetic to your interest, their focus is to pay as little as possible on claims. The insurance company is likely to contact you very soon after the automobile or motorcycle accident in an effort to settle the claim as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Before you provide them with any information or give them any recorded statements it is important to speak with an attorney to discuss your legal rights. Statements that you give to the insurance company can be used against you. You need someone on your side.

Paying for Medical Costs after a Motorcycle collision
Victims of motorcycle or automobile collisions are often faced with expensive medical bills for their injuries. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, and your insurance company is not paying for your medical treatment, one alternative is to locate a provider who will treat you in exchange for a medical lien on your case. A medical lien enables a physician to be compensated for his medical services out of the money that you recover from the party who caused the accident.
Our Los Angeles Motorcycle Injury attorneys are able to make referrals to top notch doctors and physical therapists who will work on a lien without requiring upfront payment, in appropriate cases. Once you a verdict or settlement is reached in your case, the medical provider will be compensated from those funds.
