San Francisco Disfigurement and Amputation Attorney

Motorcycle riders and cyclists often suffer disfiguring injuries and amputations when dragged along the pavement, caught underneath a vehicle, or run over by a car or truck. Injured bikers face disability and the loss of a certain amount of independence. The San Francisco law office of Choulos Choulos & Wyle recovers damages for motorcycle riders and bicyclists who have lost a limb or been severely scarred as a result of someone else's carelessness.

Meeting Insurance Companies in Court

Insurance companies often dispute the costs associated with catastrophic injuries. Concerned only with making a profit for shareholders, insurers look for ways to reduce claim payouts. While their lawyers may call various experts to the stand and even dispute the cause of our client’s injuries, we simply cannot be out-maneuvered by them in court. We work hard to demonstrate the financial and emotional losses associated with disfigurement or amputation including past and future disability, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.

Since the insurance company will likely dispute the total costs related to your injuries, it’s important to thoroughly document costs associated with future surgery, medical treatment and lost earnings. In order to support our clients’ cases, our lawyers work with medical experts, economists, and life care planners who explain the scope, nature, and costs of your injuries.

As motorcycle owners and cyclists ourselves, we understand accidents from the perspective of both riders and lawyers. We know what to look for in accidents, how to handle and present evidence, and how to challenge the other side’s experts.

Providing Peace of Mind

Disfigurement, amputations, loss of limb, road rash, and severe burns can occur to anyone out enjoying a ride when cars and trucks fail to pay attention to the road. We can help provide peace of mind to injured cyclists facing serious disfigurement and amputations that leave them disabled and unable to do the things they used to do before their accident.
