Full compensation for all accident costs in California

Motorcycle Accidents,Our Blog | February 5, 2015

When you are involved in a motorcycle accident in California, the main costs that you face could be medical expenses. Just the ride to the hospital, in the back of an ambulance, can be quite costly, and the numbers keep climbing depending on how much treatment you need and how long you have to stay. However, it’s important not to forget that you may have a right to financial compensation for all of the costs stemming from the accident, not just the medical costs.

Due to their small size, damage to motorcycles can be extensive, even in accidents that take place at low speeds. In many cases, the bike could be entirely totaled, and you’ll need to have it replaced. On other cases, it may be repairable, but you’ll have to see if fixing it is worth it or if the cost is so high that a new ones makes more sense.

The insurance company is going to have a heavy hand in this part of the process. They will need to get quotes for what it would cost to fix the bike and a rough value of the bike if it was to be replaced.

However, dealing with the insurance company can be difficult, as they may not end up offering you as much as you think that the bike was really worth. If the insurance isn’t involved, you may still have a right to financial compensation from the person who caused the crash. Either way, if you would like to find out more about your rights and your legal options, we hope you’ll take a moment to check out our site and speak with a Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyer.
