Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in East San Diego County
Motorcyclists are involved in serious accidents much more often than automobile drivers. In fact, studies have found that, per mile traveled, the number of deaths on motorcycles is over 25 times greater than the number in cars. Also, motorcyclists are almost five times more likely to be injured in a collision than drivers and passengers in conventional motor vehicles. With the severity and frequency of motorcycle accidents, it’s important to raise awareness on how to share the road safely with motorcyclists—one way is to hold careless and negligent drivers responsible when they do not.
The experienced El Cajon motorcycle accident lawyers at Garmo & Garmo, LLP are prepared to handle cases involving all types of driver oversights and errors that cause motorcycle accidents. We recognize that many people have preconceived notions about motorcyclists, namely that they are reckless. We also know this reputation is underserved and unfounded. In most cases, motorcycle accidents result from the negligence of other drivers who:
- Don’t check their blind spot when making a lane change
- Don’t watch out for motorcyclists when entering or exiting a street or freeway
- Don’t yield the right of way at a stoplight or stop sign
- Make a sudden left-hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle
Motorcyclists should not have to pay for automobile driver negligence — with their lives or their wallets. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Our firm thoroughly investigates motorcycle accidents to identify all possible responsible parties, including manufacturers of cars and motorcycles as well as those in charge of maintaining the roadway where your accident occurred. We also work with medical professionals to ensure the full nature and extent of your injuries is understood and documented. The head of our personal injury group practiced medicine before he practiced law, so we are especially skilled at identifying and explaining injuries to the benefit of our clients. Once we have a clear picture of fault and the severity of the injuries involved, we pursue compensation that covers the cost of medical treatment, offsets lost wages and reduced earning capacity, and makes up for pain and suffering.
You are entitled to fair compensation after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle accident you did not cause. Do not let an insurance company settle your case for less than you deserve.
