Motorcyclists of Anaheim face significant risks each day. Even when a motorcyclist wears the appropriate gear and a helmet, there is still a chance that they will sustain a severe injury in the event an accident occurs. At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, we are here to help when you need an Anaheim motorcycle accident attorney by your side. We will work diligently to recover complete compensation for your losses.
Motorcyclists in Anaheim should be able to recover various types of compensation if another driver was responsible for their collision. At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, we work diligently to recover complete economic and non-economic losses on behalf of every motorcycle victim that we help.
There is no set amount of compensation available to Anaheim motorcycle accident victims. However, there are several factors that can influence the total amount of compensation the crash victim receives. These factors include, but are not limited to, how severe the injuries are, how long it takes a person to recover, the total amount of property damage they sustain, and how much pain and suffering can be shown to the insurance carrier or a personal injury jury. Additionally, shared fault could play a role in how much compensation a person receives.
Motorcycle accidents are much more likely to result in major injuries for those riding on the motorcycle. These individuals have almost no protection from external forces. Even when a motorcyclist wears protective clothing and a helmet, they are still at risk of major injuries. Some of these include:
These external and internal injuries often lead to major emergency and ongoing medical bills. For those who sustain long-term or permanent disabilities, the need for medical care and income assistance may continue for years.
Aside from these traumatic injuries, we also have to be aware that motorcyclists regularly sustain major pain and suffering, both physical as well as psychological. This must be taken into account when properly calculating compensation for the injury victim. Compensation for physical and emotional pain and suffering could be significant, and a skilled personal injury lawyer in Anaheim can help victims properly calculate all of these losses and present the findings to the insurance carrier or a jury.
If a motorcyclist sustains an injury or property damage caused by the actions of another driver, they can recover compensation. But first, they have to prove liability for the incident. That can be challenging, particularly when insurance carriers or legal teams get involved.
One of the best ways to ensure the right party is found at fault for the incident is to have a law enforcement officer come to the scene to investigate and fill out the police report. Commonly the officer will notate who caused the incident.
Additionally, the motorcyclist or another party can use a phone to take photos or video of everything they see at the scene, including property damage, vehicle damage, debris, injuries, skid marks, and more. Additionally, eyewitness accounts of the incident could be helpful, but their names and contact information needs to be written down before they leave the area.
A skilled Anaheim motorcycle accident lawyer can use their resources to further investigate the incident to uncover evidence. Additional evidence may include surveillance footage from cameras on buildings near the crash, vehicle black box data, mobile device data, and more.
