Motorcycle crashes cause a variety of injuries. A motorcyclist could spend months in recovery, which can result in substantial financial losses. If another driver caused your motorcycle accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. However, you need to prove fault and damages before receiving money for a motorcycle accident claim. Our Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyers can help.

Common Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Crashes

A motorcyclist is at risk for severe and traumatic injuries in a crash. Riders have very little protection from injuries in a collision. Even when a rider is wearing a motorcycle helmet, the rider can still sustain traumatic brain injuries.

Common motorcycle injuries include:

Motorcycle crashes can result in disabilities and permanent impairments. Receiving maximum compensation for your personal injury claim can mean the difference in receiving the health care and personal care you need for lifelong impairments caused by motorcycle crashes.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim

California is a fault state for traffic accidents. You must prove that another party caused your motorcycle accident to receive compensation for your injuries and damages. Therefore, you must have evidence proving that the other driver caused the accident to receive money for a motorcycle accident claim.

If defective motorcycle parts or systems contributed to the cause of the crash, a motorcycle manufacturer could be responsible for your damages, but you must have evidence that the defective motorcycle part contributed to the cause of the crash.

Likewise, if defectively designed roads or improperly maintained roads caused the motorcycle crash, the government could be liable. Again, you must have evidence to prove the liability before you can receive money for an injury claim.

How Do I Prove Fault for Motorcycle Crashes?

Investigating motorcycle crashes can be time-consuming, expensive, and complicated, especially for a rider recovering from severe injuries. Our motorcycle accident lawyers have the resources and skills to conduct a thorough accident investigation. Our legal team gathers evidence to identify all parties who might have liability for your injury claim.

Additionally, we carefully document the factors that led to the cause of the crash to prove that you were not at fault. Insurance companies often use comparative fault laws in California to reduce the value of motorcycle accident claims. If the insurance company can prove that your actions contributed to the cause of the crash, the amount of money you can receive for your injury claim is reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you for causing the motorcycle crash.

Therefore, our lawyers work diligently to prove the other driver or other parties were responsible for causing the crash. We also work to prove that you had no responsibility for the cause of your motorcycle accident. Our goal is to get you the highest settlement amount possible, given the facts in your case.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
