But if you're injured in an Arcadia accident while on your motorcycle, it can be serious and change your life in negative ways. The lack of protection for motorcyclists means that their injuries can be very serious. And along with a major physical recovery, you'll often be left struggling financially as a result of your accident.
Our lawyers know that your recovery will take time, and we take the fight to those responsible to ensure that you can focus on physical healing. We get you the money you deserve so you can heal.
Can You Seek Compensation?
If you're involved in a motorcycle crash, it can be hard to know just what rights you actually do have. However, if your injuries were caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another, you may have the right to restitution.
Examples of what may constitute reckless or negligent actions in a motorcycle crash include:
- Texting while driving or other distracted driving
- Drunk driving or driving while high on drugs
- Failure to follow traffic laws, signals, and signs
- Failure to maintain a vehicle properly for safety

How Will Your Attorney Prove Fault?
Your attorney will use a variety of different methods to show that you're owed compensation. The other side often uses a variety of different tactics to try to prevent you from getting anything, but we stand up to those bullying tactics and fight for your rights.
Some of the ways that we prove your right to compensation include:
- Mobile phone records
- Accident reports
- Security camera footage
- Black box data from the data recorders if available
- Witness statements
- Accident recreations
- Driver histories
We'll use each of these and more to show that your injuries were caused by someone else and to get you what you deserve.
What Damages Are You Owed?
An Arcadia motorcycle crash can lead to significant injuries and significant financial struggles. There are numerous factors that can contribute to what a fair settlement is including:
- Medical bills including future estimated medical bills
- Lost wages and future lost wages or impact on your income
- Compensation for your pain and suffering

- Punitive damages

We'll consult with economic and medical experts to develop a clear look at just what you deserve and how the crash will impact you in the long term.

Are You Being Bullied?
The key reason that you need an Arcadia motorcycle accident attorney on your side is the fact that the insurance companies and legal teams for the other party often use bullying techniques and scare tactics to push around victims and prevent them from getting what they really deserve. This includes things like:
- Offering lowball settlements
- Stalling payments
- Ignoring your attempts to contact them
- Refusing to pay at all
They do this while you're struggling to recover from your injuries and only care about their bottom line. However, our team doesn't let this happen. We stand up for your rights and fight the big companies and lawyers to make sure that our clients get the most from their case.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in an Arcadia motorcycle crash, we're here to fight for you. We'll make them pay so you can make the recovery you need.
