Motorcycle Injuries in Mission Viejo

What should you do about recovering for motorcycle injuries in Mission Viejo or Orange County California?  Have you been injured while riding a motorcycle or as a passenger?  Motorcyclists and their passengers are at a significant disadvantage when a car pulls out in front of them or changes lanes unexpectedly.  The force of a moving vehicle compared to the human body (even a rider wearing kevlar and a helmet) will often result in serious and in some cases life threatening injuries for a biker and his or her passenger.

The Value of Uninsured Motorist Coverage or UIM

What is the value of uninsured motorist coverage or UIM in Los Angeles, LA and Orange County California?  I recently had a friend call me to discuss a recent motor vehicle accident he had been involved in. While driving along the 405 freeway in the city of Costa Mesa, he was struck from behind out of nowhere. He pulled over to the side of the freeway, as did the driver that struck him from behind. However, and unbeknownst to him, another driver had struck the driver in back of him, which ultimately caused the collision. This was later verified by another independent witness that pulled over to confirm. Lucky for my friend, he had Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UIM) under his automobile insurance policy which would cover this type of “hit and run” accident. Without this optional UIM coverage under his policy, it may be likely that he would not be
