Motorcycle Accidents in Bakersfield

More than 15,500 people become injured each year due to motorcycle accidents in California. Although we want everyone to recover from their injuries, around 600 people lose their lives per year as a result of their injuries. Fatal accidents have a devastating impact on families. In many cases, victims are left to grieve the loss of their loved ones while trying to come with terms that they lost their life in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another person.

A wrongful death attorney in California can help you if you have recently lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident. The surviving family members of victims who lose their lives in negligently caused accidents are left to deal with an array of consequences, often including a large financial burden. An attorney may be able to help you collect full and fair financial compensation for your losses depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s crash. 

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you will most likely be approached by insurance companies who appear to be on your side only to try to pursue you to encourage you to accept lowball settlement offers. Accepting an offer from an insurance company may not be in your best interest. Quite often, insurance companies offer the minimum amount of compensation to accident victims as a way to encourage them to sign over their legal rights. This often prevents victims from getting the compensation they need for medical treatment, lost wages, and various other costs they face from their accidents. Instead, it is crucial to reach out to a motorcycle accident attorney in California as soon as possible. You may have options available to help you move forward after being harmed in an accident.
