Motorcycle accidents cut short the lives of over 500 people every year. An additional 14,000 riders are left to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering from crash-related injuries. Sadly, a percentage of these accidents are the result of driver negligence. Every year in the United States, thousands of people lose their lives in preventable accidents caused by careless or inattentive drivers. If you have recently lost someone you love in a motorcycle accident that you believe was the responsibility of another driver, you may be wondering what you can do to get justice for the death of your loved one. It is in your best interest to contact a Fresno wrongful death attorney who may be able to assist you based on the circumstances of your loved one’s accident. You may be eligible for full and fair financial compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one, among other damages that resulted from the incident.
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you will inevitably be approached by insurance adjusters who seem to be on your side but are probably trying to get you to agree to a lowball settlement. Accepting a settlement from an insurance carrier is most likely not in your best interest. Typically, insurance companies offer the minimum amount of financial compensation to collision victims as a way to get them to sign over their legal rights to pursue additional damages.
Once they sign, the victim is prevented from continuing to seek the monetary compensation they need for medical care, lost income, and many other costs they will face arising from their accidents. Instead, it is crucial to reach out to a motorcycle accident attorney in Fresno, California as soon as possible. You may have options available to help you move forward after being harmed in an accident.
