San Diego Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Although car accidents are certainly dangerous, motorcycle accidents carry an extra level of injury risk to the rider, and are often more severe and more life-threatening. One reason for this, is that a motorcycle rider’s body is far more exposed than drivers and passengers riding in cars and trucks. Since there are no safety belts on a bike, many accidents cause the rider to be thrown forcibly from the motorcycle, resulting in injuries ranging from minor to severe, to a fatality.

Sadly, motorcycle accidents are often the result of careless, negligent or distracted automobile drivers, who do not properly scan the road for motorcycles and end up hitting them when they change lanes or initiate turns.

You are left with painful injuries, mounting medical bills, lost time from work, and expensive property damage. It can be extremely frustrating and overwhelming. Fortunately, we are here to help. While there’s no way to prevent the negligence of other people, our highly experienced San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers are here to help you and your family to secure the needed care and financial compensation you are owed. We know how important it is to begin enjoying your life again, as quickly as possible. Hiring a compassionate, yet experienced San Diego motorcycle accident attorney will put you and your family on the right track.

Motorcycle accidents & Insurance companies

The insurance laws and regulations regarding motorcycle accidents are often complex. What we have found after being hired, is that injury victims many times felt that their claims adjusters were attempting to confuse them with use of industry jargon and rules that didn’t seem to be in their best interests.

We’ve found that adjusters will often use tactics like this to get you to agree to a much smaller settlement than you would otherwise be eligible.

For this reason, we highly recommend contacting an experienced motorcycle injury attorney immediately, and before speaking to the insurance company. The longer you wait, the more difficult it can become to recover the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

If you’ve just been involved in a motorcycle accident but have not yet contacted an injury lawyer, it is important to know what not to do when it comes to the insurances companies contacting you.

Call or Email us for a Free Case Evaluation. There is never an obligation. Speak directly to a motorcycle accident attorney about your situation. If hired, we will begin immediately working on your behalf.

What type of compensation is available for me?

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, damage to your vehicle, property damage and pain and suffering.

    You can go with the catchy jingles that you see on TV as I did, and become just another client. Or you can go with a firm that treats you like family, and sets the bar high by fighting for the maximum payment from your injuries. Very impressed and glad I made the switch! Thanks for everything I truly appreciate you.

    I worked with Ashley LaFontaine and she was absolutely wonderful in getting me the care I needed. When things with the doctors got hung up she helped get things moving. She was super communicative and kept me in the loop through every step of the process. Set expectations from beginning to end very well and exceed my expectations!

    I met Oliver Pelly by happenstance and after I grilled him a couple of times, I decided to hire his firm. After being my initial POC, I began working with Blake Woodhall. Both were standup guys, and Blake kept me in-the-loop the entire time. He was patient when explaining the process and going over details and understanding of my situation and concerns. Everything concluded better than I could have expected, and Blake acted as an excellent buffer to keep everything at bay. I would highly recommend Blake, Oliver and their firm for any auto accident cases.

    Going through my accident was a very difficult and emotional experience. The process of choosing the right law firm can be overwhelming. Choosing Phillips and Pelly was the best decision I could have made. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trusted Oliver’s expertise throughout the entire process. He was very responsive. Anytime I would have a question, including nights and weekends, Oliver would get back to me right away. I would recommend Phillips and Pelly for anyone going through a similar situation. They really are the best.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this law firm. Alecia Gordon represented me with my case and throughout this entire ordeal has been extremely supportive and understanding of my own lack of experience and knowledge of legal matters. She is not only kind and considerate but very intelligent and professional. The paralegal team also deserve kudos as they were always there to assist and assure me of progress and necessary document completions. All in all, I would highly recommend this firm for personal injury claims.

    Matt was very helpful in settling a case for my son that was a passenger in an automobile that crashed into a home. My son suffered cracked ribs, a concussion amongst other injuries. Matt was helpful explaining everything to us as this was a 1st dealing with anything like this for our family. It took time and patience as the other party was reluctant to settle. In the end my son had his ambulance, medical bills and a small amount of recovered monies all paid out. Great man, lawyer and law firm .Highly reccomended

Common Questions About Motorcycle Accidents

What are the most common insurance tactics, of which I should be aware?

All insurance companies are in the business of making money. To do this, they have to collect more money in premiums than they pay out in claims.

Every time you make a claim to your insurance company, an adjuster assesses the nature of your claim and decides whether to pay it based on the company’s rules. Unscrupulous insurance claims adjusters may try to apply irrelevant rules to your claim or mis-categorize your claim in an effort to reduce the amount of your settlement.

Other ways that your insurance company may try to get out of paying your claim include:

    • Asking for a recorded statement that will be used against you later
    • Asking you to sign vague “authorizations”
    • Offering you a fast settlement that is far below the amount you could get in court

Refusing to pay your medical bills

  • Showing unwillingness to agree to a settlement

 

One of the best ways to protect yourself against commonly used insurance tactics, is to hire an experienced attorney who specializes in Personal Injury Claims. Attorneys like the ones at Phillips and Pelly have represented San Diego injury victims for over 60 cumulative years, and have over 18 years in business. We are here to help you.
