Although motorcycles have been a presence on America’s roads and highways for many years, motorcyclists suffer extremely serious or fatal injuries in the Los Angeles and Nevada areas every week. The fact that motorcyclists are at an increased potential for an accident with personal injury is often due to the negligent behavior and bad decisions of other drivers . They are either not aware of the rights a motorcyclists has with respect to the road, or do not even notice a motorcyclist when changing lanes or performing another traffic maneuver. These negligent drivers may be held legally and financially responsible for the damages caused by their decisions, and an accomplished Los Angeles and Nevada personal injury attorney is in the best position to help make that happen.
Motorcycles provide little protection for the motorcyclist in the event of an accident, and motorcycle accident victims often suffer some of the worst types of injuries, including brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and death. Whether the injuries are minor or severe, compensation for any costs associated with an accident injury may be sought through legal action. The amount naturally increases with the severity of the injury, and it is not uncommon to see personal injury settlements or court decisions ranging in the millions.
