Were You a Passenger in a Motor Vehicle Accident in Orange County?
Passenger Injury Lawyer
Were you a passenger in a car or on the back of a motorcycle that was involved in an accident? Sometimes it is the passengers in a car, truck or motorcycle who are the most severely injured in an accident. While the technology of vehicles has come a long way in recent years, the safety of passengers is ultimately in the hands of the driver and the others with whom you share the road. Passengers may be less likely to wear a seatbelt, and are often thrown from a vehicle during high speed impacts leaving them severely and permanently injured. You can be sitting in the front seat talking to the driver, or riding in the back seat texting and listening to and the next moment the vehicle you are riding in is involved in an accident and you are injured.
Passengers in an accident always have a claim, and as an experienced injury attorney with more than 40 years of experience I can tell you that these cases require legal expertise as well as sensitivity. In some cases the responsible party was the friend or family member who was driving the vehicle, and in order to recover you will have to file a claim against their insurance company. We understand the delicate nature of these conversations, and will do everything possible to achieve the best possible outcome in your case while protecting the relationship(s) with the friend or family member who was driving. The accident could have been caused by another driver, or there may be several vehicles involved.
If you were injured by a commercial truck, there will be multiple parties to contend with, and you will need a seasoned attorney with the legal skill to identify all of the parties responsible and hold them accountable for what has happened to you.
Passengers On a Motorcycle Suffer Serious Injuries
If you were the passenger on a motorcycle you are probably recovering from serious injuries. There is very little to protect you when a car unexpectedly changes lanes or pulls out in front of you without seeing you. Motorcycle accident victims often suffer severe injuries, broken bones and in some cases catastrophic injuries such as head trauma and paralysis.
These types of cases can require a “life plan” that takes into account all of treatment, therapy and ongoing support you will need to fully recover from your injuries. It may be necessary to make modifications to your home or vehicle if a permanent injury limits your range of motion. Serious injuries require an experienced and proven lawyer.
