Citrus Heights Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

With wide boulevards and sunny weather, Citrus Heights is the ideal place to ride a motorcycle. We are not surprised to see people out on two wheels enjoying themselves on the weekend or even commuting every day on their motorcycles.

Unfortunately, a motorcycle accident is usually much more serious than a fender bender involving a passenger sedan. Our clients suffer horrifying injuries, and many require months of aggressive rehabilitation to get better. If you need to speak to an attorney about your accident, contact Heidari Law Group, P.C. Our Citrus Heights motorcycle accident lawyer can review whether you have a strong claim for compensation.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Riding on a bike is so enjoyable because there is nothing between you and the air. Sadly, this lack of protection is also why people suffer serious injuries in a crash. Many people are struggling with:

  • Abrasions
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Concussions
  • Facial injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Back injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis

Some people can walk away from an accident, while others will need a lift to the emergency room in the back of an ambulance. We encourage everyone to go to the hospital soon after an accident to receive medical treatment.

Expenses Related to Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents are expensive, even minor ones. Many of our clients are burdened with medical bills, motorcycle repairs, car rental fees, and other expenses. At the same time, they can’t work because they are in significant pain, which might limit their movement or even their ability to sit upright.

These financial losses deserve compensation. And we can request money in a settlement or in a lawsuit to ensure you are properly compensated.

Pain and Suffering

Bodily injuries are disabling and cause pain and suffering. Helpfully, we can request compensation to cover these hard-to-define losses. For example, it’s not unusual after a motorcycle accident to stop visiting with friends or going on walks with your wife because doing so is difficult. Pain can keep people awake at night, and depression or anxiety often require medication. Our clients deserve a fair sum of money to make up for this suffering.

Fault for Motorcycle Accidents

We will help bring a claim against any person or entity at fault for your crash. In many cases, we end up filing claims against:

  • Motorists who drive negligently or recklessly. Many motorcyclists are struck when they pass through an intersection or are riding on the highway. Some motorists fail to keep an eye out or drive recklessly around motorcycles.
  • Motorcycle manufacturers. A defect in design or manufacture could have contributed to your crash. For example, tires could explode or brakes might fail.
  • Municipalities. Road defects can also cause accidents. A gigantic pothole in the street could upend a motorcycle. Other bikers are hurt when construction debris left in the road causes them to flip.

We perform an investigation to uncover who is the correct party to sue. Although every case is different, we often need to interview witnesses, visit the accident scene, and inspect your bike. We might also find dashcam or other footage which captures the accident.

Negotiating Settlements

Most cases can avoid a trial. We will make a demand for compensation on the person at fault, and we are aggressive negotiators. Many insurers try to pin the blame for a wreck on bikers, playing up stereotypes about how dangerous they are. Because we have such a command of the facts, we can often persuade insurers to see a case our way. We will also nudge insurance adjusters when they unfairly delay investigating or settling a claim.
