San Francisco Leg Injuries Attorney

There are many motorcyclists and bicyclists in and around the San Francisco area. In most cases, riders operate in harmony with other types of vehicles on the roadway. However, motorcycle and bicycle riders are more susceptible to serious leg injuries in the event an accident does occur. At Choulos, Choulos & Wyle, our San Francisco leg injuries attorneys are here to help if you or a loved one has been injured due to another driver’s negligent actions.

How Will An Attorney Help You?

Bicycle and motorcycle accidents often require extensive investigation before compensation can be recovered for a victim. In many cases, bicyclists and motorcyclists face unwarranted biases from the insurance carriers. A skilled San Francisco leg injury attorney will have the resources necessary to conduct a thorough investigation in order to prove liability. An attorney will:

  • Obtain all evidence from the scene of the crash (photos, videos, witness statements, accident reports, etc.).
  • Work with trusted medical professionals to assess a victim’s injuries and properly calculate total losses.
  • Negotiate with all parties involved to secure a fair settlement for the crash victim.

Leg Injuries After Motorcycle And Bicycle Crashes

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, we know that there were more than 11,300 bicyclist injuries and nearly 14,000 motorcyclist injuries during the latest reporting year across the state. According to studies by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), lower-extremity injuries in motorcycle accidents occur much more frequently than any other type of injury. Bicycle riders are also much more likely to sustain leg injuries than other types of injuries.

Bicyclists and motorcyclists have very little protection from the force of the vehicle slamming into them. Unfortunately, one of the first areas of a cyclist’s body to sustain an impact from a vehicle will be the lower extremities in most situations. In these incidents, it is not uncommon for broken bones to occur. These incidents can also cause crush injuries, particularly if a cyclist gets pinned between a vehicle and another object for lengthy periods of time. Finally, soft tissue damage can be severe, especially if a victim is thrown from the bike and onto the roadway (road rash and lacerations).

What Kind Of Compensation Is Available In A Leg Injury Case?

There are various types of compensation available to motorcyclists and bicyclists who have sustained leg injuries caused by another person’s negligent actions. At Choulos, Choulos & Wyle, we know that every case is different, and the total amount of compensation awarded will vary depending on various elements of the case. However, we regularly help clients secure the following:

  • Coverage of all crash-related expenses
  • Lost wages if a victim cannot work
  • Physical therapy costs
  • Coverage of any necessary prosthetics
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
