Suisun City Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Suisun City Motorcycle Accident AttorneySuisun City may be a relatively small town, but it’s located near some of Northern California's most incredible areas. Residents are just hours away from the Sierra Nevadas and even closer to the coast and Napa Valley. With so many places to ride, it’s easy to see why so many Suisun City residents choose to ride motorcycles. Not only are local bikers able to get out and enjoy the sights and fresh air, but riding a motorcycle as a regular means of transportation can save you a lot of money on your bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

However, even though there are many benefits to riding a motorcycle, motorcyclists still face major risks and are liable to suffer severe injuries in the event of a crash. In many cases, these injuries have a huge impact on motorcyclists’ lives.

As Suisun City motorcycle accident attorneys, it’s our job to ensure that injured motorcyclists can recover the compensation they need to move forward with their lives.

We Focus on Major Injury Cases

The damages that motorcyclists suffer as the result of accidents can add up to a large sum. Because cases involving serious injuries can be so valuable, financially liable parties like insurers, negligent drivers, and/or auto manufacturers often do everything they can to disclaim responsibility. These parties will often put a considerable amount of time and resources toward their legal defense, making it very hard for injured motorcyclists to claim the compensation they need to cover their damages.

Because these cases can be difficult, it’s important to know that your lawyer has the resources, skill, and experience to make sure you receive the payments you deserve. Our law firm only takes on cases that involve either a fatal or major injury, meaning that our attorneys are experts when it comes to handling high-value cases. We have decades of experience conducting accident investigations, negotiating settlements, and proving cases in court.

Running a Holistic Practice

We are often called the “personal” personal injury lawyer. This is because our firm is run holistically, meaning that we choose to focus on our clients on a personal level and prioritize care and compassion during the claims process. We think of our firm as a family, and our clients are the most important members.

Many firms prefer to keep clients at arm’s length while working on their case. A strictly business-like approach to injury claims can be effective for some. However, we believe that by taking a genuine interest in our clients’ lives, we can fully understand how they’ve been affected by their injuries. This understanding helps us to be more effective advocates for our clients’ rights to compensation.

Calling an Attorney

People who’ve been injured in motorcycle accidents frequently face a difficult path to recovery. Firstly, being injured can be both painful and mentally stressful, and recovering can take a long time or even cause permanent health issues. To recover, many people need extensive medical care, including surgeries, physical therapy, and more, all of which can be highly expensive. Affording quality medical care may seem impossible, especially for people who have been left unable to work because of their injuries.

These issues are serious and may leave motorcycle accident survivors feeling overwhelmed. Thankfully, it is often possible to obtain full compensation for these damages and more by working with a Suisun City motorcycle accident attorney to file an injury claim.

However, every injury case is different, and the payments available to you depend on several different factors. For this reason, it’s important to reach out to an experienced attorney for advice before making any legal decisions. The majority of injury attorneys will be happy to offer you free advice over the phone, so there is nothing to lose by reaching out for help from a qualified professional.
