Motorcycle Accident Attorney Santa Clara, Pittsburg, Corona, Vallejo
Motorcyclists love the state of California. And with good reason. We have some of the most breathtaking views in the nation. But as California personal injury lawyers, we also know the risks that cyclists take every time they take to the open road. At the Law Offices of Braff P.C., we have represented thousands of victims of motorcycle accidents in Santa Clara, Pittsburg, Corona, and Vallejo recover the compensation they deserve after a serious accident.
The Sad Facts
In our state, the unfortunate facts are that motorcyclists make up 17 percent of our road fatalities. This is the second highest number in the nation. When it comes to motorcycle accidents, the rider has little in the way of protection. This can leave them more vulnerable to serious injuries and fatalities than the driver of a car. In fact, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die as the result of an accident than a passenger in a car. Another sad fact: most of these are due to negligence.
Devastating Injuries and Motorcycle Accidents
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Even with today’s new technology in helmet design and protective gear, riders still suffer from devastating physical injuries in an accident that can affect their lives, often permanently.
- Orthopedic injuries
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Post-concussive syndrome
- Post-traumatic stress
- Chronic pain
- Nerve damage
If negligence factored into your motorcycle accident, you can recover compensation for the following:
- Costs of any current or future medical treatment — this can include your costs for emergency room visits, copayments for your doctor visits, rehabilitation and therapies, prescriptions, medical supplies, or long-term care.
- Lost wages — if you are unable to work due to your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages
- Pain and suffering — if your injuries resulted in extreme pain and emotional suffering, you could be entitled to compensation.
- Property damage — if your motorcycle or any personal property was damaged as a result of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation based on the fair market value of these items.
