During the hot, sunny days of summer in San Francisco, you’ve probably enjoyed many days out on your motorcycle. Maybe you were cruising when you were struck by a dangerous driver, or you were hit while you were stopped at a light. Whatever happened, someone else’s negligence is to blame for your accident, and that means you have a right to make a claim for compensation.
Injuries suffered during a motorcycle accident can be some of the worst. You may have road rash, a head injury or broken bones, even from a low-impact crash. This single incident could be life-changing for you, and it’s the fault of irresponsibility. The driver may claim he didn’t see you or notice your vehicle, but that’s no excuse for striking another vehicle.
There are many risks to motorcycling, and you already know that. What you want to be sure of is that other drivers are held accountable for their actions. They should be held accountable for pulling out in front of you or failing to stop before striking you at an intersection. You have all the same rights as any other driver on the road, and they should have been respected.
Whether you want to seek out compensation for medical bills and lost wages or want to focus on recovering costs associated with a totaled bike, it’s important that your case is heard and that you get a settlement you can agree with. Our website has more information about the kinds of settlement offers you may expect after you’re injured in a crash.
