By now, readers of our blog know that motorcycle accidents can lead to some serious injuries. For these motorcyclists, those injuries can lead to expensive medical bills and missed work. For some motorcyclists, seeking compensation if they are injured in an accident caused by someone else might not end with the recovery they think they should get. Our California readers might be wondering why that is, and the answer is because of Proposition 213.
In California, a motorist who doesn’t have insurance isn’t able to seek compensation for loss of enjoyment of life or pain and suffering. That can significantly impact the amount of money a victim is awarded if the victim files a lawsuit. For that reason, it is vital that all motorcyclists carry at least the state minimum liability insurance. Having even more coverage is a good idea since there is always a chance that the person who slams into you won’t have enough coverage to take care of your needs.
We understand that when you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to recover as much as possible to help cover your expenses. We can help you take action against the person who slammed into you.
Knowing about the process of seeking compensation and learning about different types of compensation can help you on your quest to get the financial help you need after your accident. This can help to keep the stress to a minimum during the process, which can allow you to focus more on healing and getting back up to par.
