What Will An Attorney Do For This Case?

Motorcycle and bicycle accidents that lead to brain injuries often require extensive investigation due to the severity of the incident and the potential for long term impairment. A skilled San Francisco brain injury attorney will have their legal knowledge and resources to:

  • Obtain all evidence from the incident, which can include eyewitness statements, video and photo surveillance, accident reports, and more.
  • Work with experienced brain injury specialists to properly calculate a victim’s total expected losses and their need for long-term care.
  • Negotiate with all parties involved to secure fair compensation for the victim and their family.

Brain Injuries In Motorcycle And Bicycle Crashes

California authorities have taken steps to try to prevent brain injuries in motorcycle and bicycle accidents. All motorcyclists in California must wear a DOT-approved helmet at all times. California law also states that all children under 17 must wear a bicycle helmet while riding a bike.

However, brain injuries still regularly occur in motorcycle and bicycle accidents in San Francisco. Riders who do not wear helmets are certainly more susceptible to these injuries, but even when a rider is wearing a helmet, brain injuries can still occur.

There were more than 11,300 bicyclist injuries and nearly 14,000 motorcyclist injuries during the latest reporting here across the state, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Many of these were brain injuries. In these cases, it is not uncommon victims to sustain long-term impairments, which can include:

  • Loss of fine motor skill
  • Memory loss or cognitive problems
  • Trouble speaking
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Mood changes, including depression, anger, and anxiety
  • An inability to work

How Much Compensation Is Available For A Brain Injury Case?

If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury in a motorcycle or bicycle accident caused by another driver’s negligent actions, you may be entitled to various types of compensation. At Choulos, Choulos & Wyle, we regularly help clients sustain the following types of compensation for these cases:

  • Coverage of any medical bills related to the incident
