Because motorcycle accident cases can be more legally complex than automobile accidents, it’s extremely important to hire a personal injury attorney if you decide to file a claim. There is a common misconception from traffic reports that motorcycle riders are usually at fault. An experienced personal injury lawyer, however, can call in medical professionals, accident reconstruction experts, and other expert witnesses to determine the truth of the matter.

Derek L. Casey’s investigative skills have helped motorcycle riders receive compensation for various damages, including but not limited to:

  • Property loss
  • Current & ongoing medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain & suffering
  • Punitive damages 
  • Loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

Motorcycle Accident FAQs

Can I still file a claim if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?
Yes, but it may cost you. California law requires all riders and passengers to wear a helmet while riding any motorcycle or motorized bicycle. If you weren’t wearing a helmet, the negligent driver’s insurance company could argue that you are responsible for all or some of your injuries, minimizing your financial compensation. That makes it all the more important to have a skillful personal injury lawyer on your side.
Do I need to hire an attorney after a motorcycle accident?
While you may go through the entire claims process on your own, hiring a personal injury attorney has numerous benefits. We can fight for the maximum compensation you are owed and streamline the claims process to ensure no costly mistakes are made. If you’re not sure whether you need legal counsel, call Derek L. Casey for a consultation today.
What happens if you get hurt on a scooter in California?
If you were injured in an accident while riding an electric or gas scooter, including those rented through a scooter share service, you, too, have the right to consult with a personal injury attorney to receive fair compensation for your injuries. Call Derek L. Casey today to discuss the details of your case.
