Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

motorcycle accident attorneysMotorcycles are a fun and convenient form of transportation.  Unfortunately, motorcycles don’t provide the protection that a car gives you.  Even when a rider is wearing a helmet and protective clothing, motorcycle accidents are extremely dangerous.

If you or a loved one was hurt in a motorcycle accident, you want to be sure to get the best medical and legal help available.  David S. Brown has been helping accident victims for over 35 years.  We understand the legal issues that motorcycle riders face after an accident, and we want to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.

What Rights Do You Have In A Motorcycle Accident?

In California, every person is responsible for injuries caused by his or her failure to act reasonably.  This is called negligence.  If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, another driver is responsible for your injuries if he or she failed to act reasonably.  For example, if a driver makes an unsafe lane change and hits the motorcycle rider in the lane next to him, that is negligence.  If a driver is distracted by his cell phone and runs a red light, that is negligence.   Make sure you receive what you deserve.

What Should You Do If You Are Injured In A Motorcycle Accident?

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, call 911 as soon as it is safe to do so.  Tell all of your injuries to the first responders, and do as your medical professionals advise at all times.

Be careful when talking to other drivers involved in the accident.  Do not make statements like “I’m sorry” or “I’m okay.”  These seemingly harmless statements may be viewed as admissions that you caused the accident, or you were not injured in the accident.

If possible, exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties to the accident, and take photos of all vehicles in the accident.

Contact Brown, Brown & Brown as soon as you can do so without it interfering with your medical treatment.  It is crucial to consult with us early, so that your rights are protected, and your case is handled properly.
