Do you want to receive the most money for your injury after a motorcycle accident?
You can often face mounting medical expenses following a bike accident. The financial consequences of the accident can grow significantly when you lose income from missing work. It is only natural then to wonder if you can hold someone else responsible and liable for your losses.
Instead of wandering in the void, you must discuss your case with some experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who could evaluate your losses and help you get the compensation that you rightly deserve. You have nothing to lose by discussing your rights with a lawyer as no reputable law firm in San Diego will charge you even a penny for the initial consultation.
You can hold another party liable if that party’s negligence caused you the injuries and the resulting losses. Different kind of parties may be held liable for their negligence in motorcycle crashes, including:
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of bike crashes in California. Bikes are already harder to see on the roads because drivers primarily look out for cars, trucks, or other bigger vehicles. So, it is all too easy to miss a biker in a blind spot or even in a rearview mirror and try to turn or change lanes right in front of them. Still, the law requires drivers to adequately watch for all types of vehicles, including the smaller ones like motorcycles and bicycles.
After you identify one or more negligent parties involved in your accident, you have different options for obtaining compensation. In most cases, the first step is filing a claim with the negligent party’s insurance company. While insurance claims may seem quite straightforward, the complication in the process can often surprise the victims. Insurers will try their best to limit any payouts by challenging liability or the extent of your losses. A skilled bike accident attorney can protect your rights during this process.
Insurance companies are notorious for revising down claims and offering only a fraction of what was requested. This doesn’t mean you deserve less—it only means that the companies can be greedy and they will try to boost their profits at the expense of victims. They make lowball offers knowing that a common citizen is mostly unaware of his legal rights and could accept whatever they would be offered. Once you sign a settlement, you waive your right to take any additional legal action relating to your accident. This means you can’t ask for more when you later realize how insufficient the settlement was.
For this reason, you should consult with motorcycle accident lawyer and get settlement offers reviewed before you accept anything. We will ensure you don’t end up walking away with less than what you need and deserve.

How to Protect Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident
Compensation would make the lives of motorcycle accident victims easier, but it is not automatically issued to anyone. Even in cases where the other driver is clearly at fault, it has to be claimed and the claim has to be substantiated. In fact, obtaining compensation mostly requires affirmative steps on part of the victim. Victims can do things that hurt their chances of recovering compensation after an accident. To maximize your chances of recovery, you must do the following things after the bike accident:
