Motorcycle Accidents in Anaheim
Due to the unprotected nature of a motorcyclist’s vehicle, they are more vulnerable to mishaps and damage from a truck or car while on California’s roadways. When other drivers are inattentive, this leads to problems for those on a motorcycle. If another motorist does not check their mirrors, devastating injuries can result for a motorcycle rider.
If you or a loved one has been in any kind of motorcycle accident, finding knowledgeable legal representation is important. California Law allows a limited time for personal injury claims to be made after a motorcycle accident. Failing to take legal action within the allotted time can permanently waive the injured person’s right to the financial compensation that would otherwise be due. Although there are similarities between the way a car accident case and a motorcycle accident case should be handled, there are some differences. Anaheim Attorney Martinez understands the legal nuances involved and knows what is needed to gain the maximum compensation for clients.
