Riding a motorcycle down a La Mesa highway can feel like a liberating experience. Unfortunately, accidents are a common occurrence and can turn a thrilling adventure into a nightmare, even with safety measures in place. Additionally, in nearly every motorcycle accident case, the motorcyclist is unfairly blamed for causing the collision – whether they have any fault or not. Riders are often at a disadvantage when in collisions with negligent motorists, as injuries can be severe and long-lasting, making it difficult for victims to return to their normal lives. If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, speak with an experienced La Mesa motorcycle accident attorney to seek the justice and compensation you deserve.
At Jassim Law, we know riders have a long recovery ahead. We must act quickly and aggressively to prevent motorcyclists from being unfairly blamed for causing or contributing to the accident. For instance, often motorcyclists are blamed for “lane splitting,” a legal and safe behavior actually known as “lane sharing.” Injured motorcyclists often need extensive medical treatment, time off work, and vehicle repair and replacements. To make matters worse, health insurance is sometimes inadequate or does not provide for the extent of the medical care required. Our La Mesa motorcycle accident attorneys are proud to provide access to the best medical care available – with or without health insurance.
Unfortunately, insurance companies attempt to diminish or deny motorcycle accident claims based on misconceptions about riders to protect their own bottom lines. With over two decades of experience, we can navigate the California legal system and increase your chance of a favorable outcome. Motorcyclists have an equal right to use our roadways and are entitled to expect motorists to drive safely and share the road with motorcyclists. We strive to make our communities safer by holding negligent parties accountable and helping motorcycle accident victims just like you.
