Is a motorcycle injury claim worth pursuing? Should I hire a motorcycle accident attorney?
Generally speaking, when someone is injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of another person’s fault, the injured individual may pursue a claim against the one that caused the injuries. His or her spouse may also have a claim known as loss of consortium claim.
If the motorcycle accident involves a death, the successors of that person might have a wrongful death claim.
To have a valid claim, the motorcyclist who files a claim for compensation needs to provide proof of damages and proof of the at-fault party's responsibility. The laws and rules that govern motorcycle accident personal injury cases in California are many and varied, and may generally be found in the California Codes, Rules of Court, and California case law.
The simplest way to find out if the facts of your motorcycle accident situation may constitute a valid claim is to talk to a motorcycle attorney. Keep in mind to not be concerned if the first lawyer you speak with decides not to represent you because every not every lawyer has the same experience and areas of expertise. While one lawyer sees that a claim is worth pursuing, another may not.
