Everyone knows the odds are not in your favor if you're a motorcyclist involved in an accident. What you may not know is that sometimes the odds are stacked against you afterwords as well. Insurance carriers aren't inclined to sign off on a motorcyclist's claim as easily as someone injured in an auto accident; for that reason and several others you need a skilled San Diego motorcycle accident attorney if you've been in a motorcycle crash here in the County.
It's not always easy to interpret the evidence at the scene of a motorcycle accident, so if it happens to you and you're fortunate enough to still be thinking clearly, try to accomplish as much as you can at the scene.
Like it or not, there is an unspoken prejudice towards motorcyclists when it comes to traffic and traffic accidents. That's why a motorcycle accident is going to require experienced investigation along with quality legal representation. The evidence at a motorcycle collision scene is soon cleared and traffic is rolling once again. Reconstructing the true sequence of events takes someone who knows what the right questions are and who to ask.
One third of all motorcycle accidents in San Diego County in 2008 occurred in unincorporated areas of the County. Those were likely on quiet roads without a lot of foot traffic, passing witnesses or traffic lights. While statistics show that the great majority of motorcycle accidents are the fault of the other driver, sometimes it takes a smart attorney and a good investigative team to prove it.
Motorcycle accidents may also be caused by a poorly maintained road, inadequate signage, faulty road construction, or some other physical characteristic of the landscape. Your insurance company isn't going to make that argument for you, but an experienced motorcycle accident attorney will. Contact the Offices of Anna R. Yum today to get help with your injury case.
