Santa Clara Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists know that one accident can lead to devastating injuries, which is why bikers are often the most defensive drivers on the road. However, even highly experienced, cautious motorcyclists are not able to avoid every accident scenario. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent or reckless driver, a personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation that you deserve.

We understand that recovering from accident injuries often requires extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Our attorneys pursue maximum compensation for injured clients to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other damages.

How We Can Help

You might not know exactly how your accident occurred and who was at fault, and that’s okay. Our job is to gather evidence that identifies the cause of your accident and any contributing factors. We investigate motorcycle accidents by examining road conditions, photographing the accident scene, and tracking down witnesses. When necessary, we hire experts to reconstruct the accident and determine fault.

We will also determine the total value of your claim by calculating all of the damages that you have suffered, including ongoing and future damages. In cases where severe injuries will have long-term impacts, we will hire financial experts to help calculate your loss of earning capacity and future medical expenses. Accurately valuing your injuries and damages is critical to ensure that any settlement you accept will cover all of your losses.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident Injuries

When motorcycle accident injuries are fatal, we help surviving family members recover compensation for their losses from all responsible parties. Wrongful death claims can help families regain financial stability by recovering compensation for damages, such as loss of the decedent’s financial support, funeral expenses, and medical expenses. Under some circumstances, losses that the decedent suffered from the accident before death may be recoverable under a survival action.
