What if you were seriously injured in a motorcycle crash here in California, yet you are partially or even primarily at fault? How does that affect your claim? Obviously, the insurance company is going to try to tell you, “This accident was your fault. Sorry, you’re not entitled to anything.” That’s not exactly what California law says. It’s very complex, and in situations where you were partially or even primarily at fault, the other driver can also have some fault. If there is fault on the part of the other driver and you have very serious or even lifelong injuries, you may be entitled to compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
The only way that this is going to be figured out is with a skilled and experienced attorney who is often working on these types of motorcycle claims. You need a real trial attorney, someone that the insurance company for the other driver knows has the skill and experience to go out and build a strong foundation, build your case, collect the evidence that is necessary so that you can receive compensation if your case has to go to trial. The insurance company knows this about your Ventura motorcycle crash claim: if you don’t have an attorney who knows how to build your case, and who will be ready, willing and able to go to trial on your case, they’re never going to offer you a fair settlement. The only way to do it is to get a real trial lawyer here in Ventura.
