California is a great place for riding, whether you want to be on the open road by yourself or you like the camaraderie of group rides with friends. Motorcycles offer a freedom and exhilaration unlike anything else. Unfortunately, you are also vulnerable on the road with little protection and high speeds. All it takes is the negligence of one driver to change your life forever.
If a car has hit you or your loved one while you were on your motorcycle, you have the right to pursue justice. You want an experienced lawyer on your side who is not afraid to fight for you. At the Law Offices of Derek P. Wisehart, with over 40 years of combined personal injury litigation experience, we know how to fight for our injured clients.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Lead To Severe Injuries
Drivers don’t always look out for motorcycles, even though motorcycles have all the same rights to the road that a car has. Distracted driving is especially dangerous to motorcycles because those drivers are even less likely to see you. A crash does not have to happen at high speed to cause severe injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Broken bones
Because of the potential for injuries requiring expensive, long-term treatment and possible wage loss or permanent disability, you should work with an attorney who can fight for the maximum possible compensation.
