Motorcycle accidents can cause major medical and financial issues

You probably already knew when you bought your first motorcycle that there was a degree of risk that came with getting on it. Chances are that you learned to safely operate your motorcycle before taking it on public roadways. You know how to drive it and how to stay safe. You may choose to wear leather and a helmet or add reflective strips to your clothing, jacket, helmet or motorcycle.

Risk factors for fatal bicycle accidents

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) most recent statistics from 2013, at least 900 bicyclists lost their lives and over 494,000 suffered bicycle-related injuries that year. Their data from 2010 suggests that the resulting loss of productivity and medical costs associated with that level of catastrophic injury equates to approximately $10 billion.

A previously deported drunk driver severely injures Ysidro boy

A 6-year-old San Ysidro boy was hospitalized with severe head injuries on Tuesday, May 9, after his family's car was struck by an allegedly drunk driver.

Don't settle without legal counsel

Imagine driving to work Monday morning, well rested from a long three-day weekend and ready to have a productive week in the office. Your plan took an unexpected turn when another driver decided it was more important to send a text rather than pay attention to the road. Now you are facing high medical bills for your broken nose, dislocated shoulder and various other injuries. In addition, your doctor will not release you to return to work for another two weeks and your car is totaled. The other driver's insurance company called and offered you a settlement that will not even cover a quarter of your expenses.

Offered a settlement after an accident? You need legal acumen

You weren't expecting to get into a serious car accident, but it happened. Now, you're grateful that you have such excellent motor vehicle insurance. Your insurance company may be acting friendly, but chances are that they want to limit their financial liability for the accident as much as possible. This is true both of your own insurance company and whatever company was insuring the driver who caused the accident.
