Motorcycles account for some of the most serious injuries on the roadways. Motorcycle drivers face a far greater risk than people in automobiles or public transportation. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident, the impact on the driver is far greater due to the lack of protection that automobiles have. Motorcycle injuries are commonly life-altering. Shockingly, motorcycle accidents are not usually caused by the motorcycle driver themselves. They are caused by the driver of another vehicle. If you own a motorcycle or have been in a motorcycle accident, it is important to understand your rights. The medical bills and lifetime trauma that you could experience during a motorcycle accident can be catastrophic, and the responsible party should have to pay.

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating and can cause catastrophic injury including broken bones, lacerations, traumatic brain injury, and even wrongful death.

The majority of motorcycle accidents are not caused by a motorcycle driver. Insurance companies should make sure that they cover the costs associated with the accident so that the victim can make a full recovery. However, that is not usually the case. Luckily, our team of motorcycle accident attorneys understands the shortcuts that insurance companies try to take. Mike Pines worked in the insurance industry and knows how to avoid getting tricked by insurance companies who try to underpay motorcycle accident victims. Our lawyers will not settle for less than you deserve.

The Pines Salomon Firm stands up for the rights of motorcyclists. Many people assume that automobiles own the road but motorcycles have the same legal rights when it comes to the roadways. More often than not, cars are found at-fault for motorcycle accidents. The at-fault party should be held liable for the damages that they cause. Our team of talented motorcycle accident lawyers will work to make sure that the victim’s rights are upheld in court. Our understanding of the roadways, insurance companies, and victim’s rights will ensure that you will get all of the compensation that you deserve.

Insurance companies are looking to protect their bottom line. Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of the victims that they are supposed to protect. The Pines Salomon Law Firm has years of experience dealing with insurance companies. We will not let insurance companies reduce your compensation or delay the payment that you deserve. When you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need financial support as soon as possible in order to make a speedy recovery. Our motorcycle accident lawyers will work quickly so that you do not have to dip into your savings to be able to support your family while you heal.

We Will Not Stand for Partial Payment

Society is quick to place blame on motorcyclists. Motorcyclists can be viewed as reckless and aggressive. Realistically, most motorcyclists are skilled and careful drivers. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop insurance companies from trying to paint them in a negative light. If insurance companies can take advantage of the stereotypes that society already has about motorcyclists, they can also justify underpaying accident victims. If insurance companies are able to transfer blame off of the responsible party, they will not have to pay the victim what they deserve. This profit-first mentality is what our team of motorcycle lawyers is here to fight. Our commitment to motorcyclists and their families means that we will do everything in our power to make sure that the at-fault party is held responsible. Our legal team will not rest until you have been compensated for your injuries and your recovery is complete.

California motorists are subject to the concept of comparative fault. If you are in a motorcycle accident in California, multiple parties could be held liable for the accident. If more than one party is found to be responsible for the accident, the blame will be shared among each of the parties. Insurance companies will use the notion of comparative fault to try and place blame on motorcyclists. This could reduce the amount of compensation that you receive. If the negligent driver is only found 80% responsible, you will lose 20% of the compensation you deserve. Our motorcycle accident attorneys want to ensure that you receive 100% of the compensation that you deserve.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in San Diego

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to get medical care as quickly as possible. Motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic and receiving medical care immediately should be the first thing you do to mitigate the long term effects of your injuries. The first step to getting medical attention will be to call the police. Officers can assess the scene and make sure that other motorists aren’t in danger. When the police arrive, they will be able to retrieve the information from all of the parties involved. A police record is one of the primary documents needed to pursue a motorcycle accident case. The police record is an important asset when you are filing an injury claim and will play a key part in making sure that the responsible party is identified.

The moments immediately following a motorcycle accident can be scary. The team of lawyers at Pines Salomon are here to help guide you through these moments and all of the moments that follow. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to the environment around them. Even small motorcycle accidents can be deadly. With minimal protection from the elements, motorcycle accidents can result in injuries that can last a lifetime. If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, you should not have to pay the price for another driver’s mistakes. Our team of motorcycle lawyers is your resource for expert legal advice under hard circumstances.

Motorcycle accident victims are more likely to receive more compensation when they are represented by a lawyer. The money you receive after an accident will contribute to the quality of life you are able to achieve while working towards a full recovery.
Motorcyclists have to take many precautions to put themselves outside of the risk of an accident. Wearing safety equipment such as helmets and protective gear is an important first step in mitigating the risk of injury. Not sharing lanes and making sure to use proper turn signals can also help reduce the risk of serious accidents. All drivers need to be aware of their surroundings and to actively watch out for motorcycles as they operate their vehicles.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

In the event of an accident, motorcycles offer little protection for the rider. But, motorcycles are more than legal on our highways and may offer some benefits for the rider: improved commute, scenic drives, and belonging to the motorcycle community. No matter why a motorcyclist chooses to ride, it’s up to other drivers to be aware of motorcyclists on the road. When drivers fail to be careful, sadly, motorcycle accidents can happen.

The most common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  1. Road Rash. Motorcycle accidents can cause cuts, scrapes, and lacerations. Severe road rash can also lead to scarring, blood loss, disfigurement, and internal injuries.
  2. Broken Bones.When a rider is ejected off the motorcycle, broken bones can occur.
  3. Brain Injury. A traumatic brain injury frequently occurs in motorcycle accidents. Even if a rider is wearing a helmet, the high impact to the head can cause brain inflammation, concussions, lacerations, brain bruising, hematoma or hemorrhaging, diffuse axonal injuries, or skull fractures.
  4. Spinal Cord Injury. The force of a motorcycle crash can cause spinal cord injury given the relatively fragile nature of this body part. The body is fully exposed when riding a motorcycle and the spine can become lacerated, broken or otherwise damaged. Spinal cord damage can lead to herniated discs (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), bulging discs, cervical myelopathy, spondylolisthesis, and vertebral compression fractures. These injuries can further lead to paralysis in severe motorcycle accident cases.
  5. Wrongful Death. Sadly, many motorcycle accident accidents result in death. This can lead to wrongful death. If you are a family member coping with the death of a loved one, we are sorry for your loss. We will seek justice against the responsible party. We hope that our work can help prevent future accidents by holding the negligent driver responsible.

Michael Pines and his team have kept their promise.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience

My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.

Michael worked non-stop, nothing deterred him

After falling on a cruise ship and being emergency evacuated to a hospital in Mexico, I was scared and needed help, especially because I am 89 years old. Michael worked non-stop, through the weekend, communicating internationally with stubborn insurance personnel who tried to put up roadblocks every step of the way.
