Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in San Pedro California

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers San Pedro

“Talk is cheap” has no truer reality than in the world of personal injury, and in particular, motorcycle accident, claims recovery.  I’ve preached for years that you must show the insurance company you will fight them, not tell them.

What happens when you show not tell?  You recover over $35,000,000, including hundreds of thousands in motorcycle accident settlements, in less than 10 years.

Motorcycle accident lawyers in San Pedro are not all the same.  Some, arguably most, treat victims like an assembly line paycheck.  Our lawyers have suffered injury, and stand in your shoes when evaluating your claim.  We fight to beat down the insurance adjuster tricks and games, all to ensure you get full justice.

San Pedro Motorcycle Accident Claim Process

After a motorcycle accident, there is a certain process that your claim must go through before it can be resolved or you can receive a settlement check.  Although each case is unique and may have its own unique lifecycle, there are certain steps that will almost always occur.  Those steps are:

   Receive and complete medical treatment

   Collect and analyze medical records

   Prepare demand letter and negotiate

   Resolve liens and distribute money

The main thing that is unknown and which rests between the third and fourth step is how your case resolves.  There are three main possibilities for that, which are:

   Settlement through negotiation

  Settlement through mediation

   Verdict through trial

The first option is most common, and I would predict that at least 90% of San Pedro motorcycle accident lawyers resolve their claims through settlement.  At least another 5% are resolved through mediation.  Statistically, something in the range of 3-5% of motorcycle accident claims are settled through a formal trial.

I find that more motorcycle accident claims are better resolved through trial than car accident claims.  The reason being is that insurance companies lowball motorcycle accident settlement offers, forcing motorcycle accident lawyers, and their clients, to take more of those cases to verdict.

One way to help avoid a trial is through thorough damages workup, making it risky for the insurance company to roll the dice at trial.

Damages for San Pedro Motorcycle Accident Claims

In personal injury litigation, the word “damages” refers to anything you’ve lost due to the negligently caused incident which you endured.  Damages include losses such as:

   Pain and suffering

   Lost wages

   Medical expenses

A good San Pedro motorcycle accident lawyer will know how to develop your pain and suffering evidence to highlight those losses, because that’s where the real money is for your claim.  Not ironically, that’s also the one area where the insurance company will try to make you the smallest offer.

This is why there are entire treatises, courses, and classes, which help teach lawyers on how to maximize pain and suffering damages for vehicle crash victims such as you.  Having handled numerous motorcycle accident claims, we’ve taken it a step further and developed specific strategies geared towards specifically maximizing value for motorcycle accident pain and suffering damages.

Sources of Recovery in Motorcycle Accident Cases

Following a motorcycle accident, where does the money come to pay for your damages?

You might think that’s an obvious answer because you will sue the driver who caused your motorcycle accident.  But it’s not that simple.  Yes, you should look to the insurance policy for that driver – who we call the tortfeasor.  But you should also investigate other potential insurance policies that may provide recovery for you, including:

   Resident relatives of tortfeasor

   Excess policies

  Umbrella policies

   UM/UIM policies

   Crash scene policies

The last one, motorcycle accident crash scene policies, is fairly complicated.  It’s more than just finding a policy.  It involves proving an entirely different legal claim related to defective road design.

It’s worth looking at because it could be the difference of $500,000 or more if we can prove that claim for you.

The point is, whether you have one of our San Pedro motorcycle accident lawyers help you, or you go with someone else, make sure they don’t leave any money on the table and that they know all the sources of recovery to make sure you get a full, and just, settlement for all your damages and losses.
