Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle registrations in Kern County have rapidly increased over recent years as more people rely on this mode of transportation both as an inexpensive way to get back and forth to work as well as to visit their favorite places around town. Unfortunately, the increase in registrations leads to an increase in motorcycle accidents in the region, leaving many individuals struggling to stay financially afloat while dealing with serious injuries.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligence of another roadway user, the personal injury claims process is a way for you to seek compensation for the financial and emotional damages of your injury. An experienced Bakersfield motorcycle accident lawyer from Kash Legal can help you understand this process and provide information about the types of services our team can provide to assist you with your claim.

Proving The Elements Of Negligence In A Motorcycle Accident

Motorcyclists Face a Tough Road When Seeking Compensation

Motorcyclists face far greater risks of injury and death than other roadway users do for many reasons, including the smaller profile of their vehicle, the lack of protective features such as airbags and seat belts, and the likelihood of being ejected from the bike during the course of an accident. They face a tough road when seeking compensation for their injuries, as well. Many people—including those involved in law enforcement, health care, and even the legal industry—tend to have a negative bias towards motorcyclists, believing them to be daredevils or risk takers.

Kash Legal understands that motorcyclists have as much right to use the roadway as any other safe and legal operator of a motor vehicle. We are here to help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to receive after being injured as a result of the careless or reckless actions of someone else.

How an Attorney Can Help Make the Personal Injury Claim Process Easier

Your personal injury attorney brings a wealth of knowledge and legal experience to your case, as well as a legal team that is eager to assist with the legwork involved in gathering the evidence needed to prove your claim. Some of the services we provide throughout the process include:

  • A risk-free evaluation of your case that gives you the time to learn more about the process—and about us—before making a decision about how to proceed with your case.
  • A client-friendly contingent fee billing method that allows you to wait to pay us until we have received compensation on your behalf through either a negotiated settlement or a court award. If we don’t win your case, you owe us nothing.
  • A determination of all sources of liability and associated insurance policies that can be accessed in order to compensate you. This is most often the other driver but can vary with more complicated accidents.
  • Establishing a value for your claim, taking into consideration economic and non-economic damages.
  • Managing communication with the at-fault party’s insurance provider in order to keep them focused on providing a fair settlement offer.
  • Managing the timeline of your claim to ensure that your settlement or lawsuit concludes before you meet the statute of limitations.
  • Providing the guidance you need to make informed choices on settlement offers and other major decisions that must be made about your claim.
  • Litigation services if your case goes to trial.

Recovering from motorcycle accident injuries is a journey filled with unknowns, but the legal process doesn’t have to be. Furthermore, if your car accident is the result of negligence on the part of a common carrier, you’ll like to have to go up against large companies or municipalities. 

Common carriers are businesses or entities that are responsible for transporting people or goods. They are held to a higher standard of care than regular vehicles because the act of providing a service for the public is a great responsibility. However, proving they are liable can be difficult without the proper knowledge of the complexities of dealing with common carriers. Your Bakersfield motorcycle accident lawyer is happy to answer questions you have about your claim at any time, and we will keep you updated on the progress.

Types of Compensation Available Through a Motorcycle Accident Claim

Individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident can seek compensation for:

  • Economic damages: The expenses you incurred due to the accident, such as damage to your motorcycle and gear, medical expenses associated with the treatment of your injury, wage loss, and lost earning capacity.
  • Non-economic damages: The quality-of-life impacts you experienced as a result of your injury, such as physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of the enjoyment of life.

In some cases featuring accidents that occurred as a result of malice, oppression, or fraud, the claimant can also seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are not provided as compensation for injuries, but rather as a means to financially punish someone for the extremely reckless behavior that caused the accident. Punitive damages are not common, but your Bakersfield motorcycle accident lawyer will advise you if punitive damages are a possibility.

Possible Injuries in a Motorcycle Accident

Most motorcycle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries for a rider because they lack the protection offered inside an enclosed vehicle. Common injuries suffered by motorcycle riders include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Knee dislocation
  • Ruptured tendons in the knee
  • Torn ligaments
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lower-extremities injuries 
  • Herniated discs
  • Internal injuries
  • Leg fractures 
  • Arm fractures 
  • Road rash 

Seeking medical attention is vital to a rider’s health after an accident. Whether from shock or the nature of the injury, sometimes pain and symptoms from certain injuries do not appear immediately after an accident. However, if left untreated, the injuries can worsen. Therefore, it’s always essential to have a doctor run all the tests they need to ensure no injury goes undetected. Getting an MRI and other tests like it help spot injuries giving the doctors time to address an issue before it worsens. Furthermore, these results can be used in your claim to prove the need for the amount of compensation you are asking for.

Because of the careless or reckless actions of others, motorcyclists face a significantly higher risk of becoming injured in an accident. Because of societal attitudes about motorcycles, many riders go on to face unfair judgments and stereotypes as they try to recover physically and financially for their injuries. Because insurance companies are in the business to collect premiums, not pay out on claims, the process of obtaining compensation is also complicated.

However, because motorcyclists who have been injured by someone else’s negligence have a right to compensation, a Bakersfield motorcycle accident lawyer from Kash Legal is ready to fight on their behalf. Because the legal process is complicated, the Kash Legal team is available to offer their experience with the process. To arrange your free consultation, contact us online or call (888) 527-4128.
