What is a Motorcycle accident ?
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 2,397 traffic accidents in the city of Santa Ana, California in 2014 that resulted in either injury or death. Of those accidents, 85 involved a motorcycle. This number sounds low, but compared to the size of Santa Ana, it is quite large. Throughout the state of California, the number is much higher. Motorcycle accidents are no joke, so it is critical to have a highly qualified motorcycle accident lawyer leading your legal push. Sachs Burns, located in Santa Ana, California, is ready and willing to help. Regardless of the size or complexity, our astute team of lawyers and qualified paraprofessionals will work tirelessly on your case so you can focus on recovering mentally and physically from your accident.
Motorcycle Accidents and the Legal System
In most cases, motorcycle accident issues will generally be litigated under personal law. Depending on the circumstances, criminal law may also be involved. For example, if the liable party were acting in an illegal manner (e.g. driving recklessly or driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs), there is a high possibility that they will face criminal charges from the state. In almost all cases, when there is a criminal charge involved, there is room for civil litigation as well. Motorcycle accidents can be especially catastrophic due to the inherent exposure of the motorcyclist. Bikers are far more likely than other motorists to experience a serious personal injury and, in the most severe of situations, death. This translates over to incredibly expensive medical bills and a significantly long recovery time. These factors, on top of loss of income due to time being out of work and physical damage, make motorcycle accidents very, very expensive.
Why you should hire a motorcycle accident lawyer
If you have been in a motorcycle accident in or near Santa Ana, California, Sachs Burns strongly encourages you to reach out to our office. This will allow you to focus on your recovery without worrying about the insurance company. It is best to let us deal with the insurance company because they are nefarious about trying to get motorcycle accident survivors to accept far less compensation that what they need or are legally entitled to. In some instances, insurance company adjustors will even attempt to twist the words of victims and will reach out to them during their most vulnerable times. Keep in mind, once you accept a compensation package, you can never again revisit the matter; it is final with no going back. Sachs Burns is part of the Santa Ana, California community as well as others acrossCalifornia and will not allow our clients to be bullied or intimidated by an insurance company. We negotiate on behalf of our clients to ensure they get what they are legally entitled to.
