Motorcycle Injury Lawyers, Los Angeles Personal Injury Motorcycle Law, Repair, Damages
Motorcycle injury law practice is more specialized in many ways than standard injury law practice, and causes different types of damages, and pain and suffering, than those suffered in other injury cases. The types of injuries that are common and need to be addressed in motorcycle injury law practice are not as common in other injury law practice. You see road rash, and injury to arms and legs from a rider trying to control or maneuver his or her bike in an accident situation. If you and your bike are sliding, your knees and shoulders take much of the damage as you attempt to control your skid while hanging onto your 600 pounds of sport bike. When in a car accident you have a protective cage of thousands of pounds of steel around you.
What you see in motorcycle injury law practice are the injuries resulting from direct physical impact with another vehicle or the road! Motorcycle injury law also can differ significantly from state to state. One thing we see all too often in our Los Angeles personal injury law office are motorcycle riders who do not carry their own liability insurance. California passed proposition 213 that states if you do not carry liability insurance and are involved in an accident, you are not entitled to pain and suffering damages, but limited damages including only actual damages and bike repair.
It is always a wise choice to consult with a professional whenever you have been involved in an accident. Regardless of where your accident took place, you can call our Los Angeles personal injury law office at 1-800-4-BIKERS and speak with Russ Brown, or any one of our motorcycle injury law experts.
