Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Daly City

Motorcycles have a lot to offer, and if you ride, you get that. It is difficult to imagine a better place to head out on your bike than in and around Daly City, but if you are injured in the process, the physical, financial, and emotional consequences you face can be devastating. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Daly City is standing by to help. 

Your Damages

When you’re on your bike, you lack the protective shell that occupants of other vehicles have, which leaves you especially vulnerable to the impact of an accident. Even a relatively minor motorcycle accident can leave you facing considerable damages in all the following categories:

  • Property Damage – Your bike can easily be totaled.
  • Medical Expenses – The medical bills you face can be astronomical (and may be ongoing). Serious injuries often require continuing care, and secondary health concerns are not uncommon. Costs can include emergency treatment, surgery, pain management, doctor and specialist care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, prescription medications, and more. 
  • Lost Wages – Healing from a serious injury often requires a considerable amount of time off the job and attendant lost earnings. If your ability to perform your job is affected, you could be facing a decrease in earnings into your future, and the course of your career can be affected. 
  • Pain and Suffering – Motorcycle accidents are very often violent events, which can lead to considerable physical and emotional pain and suffering. The psychological effects can include accident flashbacks, panic attacks, severe mood swings, despondency, increased anxiety, and more. 

Duty of Care

When you’re on your motorcycle, you are more difficult to see because you take up less space on the roadway. Nevertheless, the motorists who share the road with you owe you the duty of care of driving safely in relation to your presence, which means that the fact that you’re more difficult to see is not a reasonable excuse. Motorists understand that there are motorcyclists on our roadways, which makes it every driver’s responsibility to be on the lookout for them.

Motorcycle Accidents and the Negligence of Other Motorists 

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by other drivers’ negligence, and any one of the following forms of negligence can do considerable damage:

  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while impaired 
  • Speeding excessively
  • Driving aggressively
  • Drowsy driving

Negligent drivers make our roads more dangerous, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to being seriously injured.
