Traffic Accidents near Stockton
Over 500 people per year lose their lives in motorcycle accidents in California. Approximately 14,000 bikers are left to deal with pain and suffering from injuries. The chance of a motorcyclist sustaining injuries in a wreck is extremely high due to them being totally exposed. They can get broken bones, endure brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, and more, much easier than those who ride in four-wheeled, enclosed vehicles. The injuries that motorcyclists usually sustain require costly, time-consuming medical treatment. Their injuries will most likely drastically reduce their quality of life for some period of time, unfortunately. To worsen matters, injured motorcyclists are often unable to immediately return to work due to the severity of their injuries, which can make it even more difficult to keep up with the cost of medical treatment.
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. Insurance companies will 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. However, you may have options available to help you move forward after being harmed in an accident.
