California is a beautiful state for motorcycling but can also be a deadly one. Over 5,000 people die every year in motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die per mile than drivers and passengers of cars, yet, car drivers are responsible for causing the majority of motorcycle accidents. San Diego has the largest incidence of motorcycle accidents in California, so motorcyclists here are in even more danger.
If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be feeling overwhelmed. A single motorcycle accident can be devastating physically, financially, and emotionally. You should not have to bear that burden on your own—especially if it was caused by someone else’s negligence. If the accident that injured you could have been avoided, speak with David M. Boertje today about how we can help you seek justice and financial retribution.Why Sue?
An impact between an unprotected motorcyclist and a 5,000-pound car at a high speed is almost always catastrophic, and there are often caps on the insurance payouts that keep the coverage from being comprehensive and leave the victims to bear the burden. Additionally, insurance does not cover all the costs associated with the injury. Filing a lawsuit allows you to seek reimbursement for all expenses related to the accident, including all medical expenses, home treatments, lost work, reduced earning potential due to injury, pain and suffering, physical deformity, property damage, loss of companionship, loss of consortium, and more. In some cases, punitive damages may also be available.
Bringing a lawsuit is also a way for individuals who have lost everything, or suffered significant damage, due to another’s negligence, to start taking it back. A lawsuit allows you to hold accountable all parties who caused, facilitated, or enabled this accident to happen and restores you to the position you would have been in financially, had the accident never occurred.How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
