Rohnert Park Personal Injury Attorneys

Help Is Only a Phone Call Away

personal injuryIf you live in the Rohnert Park area, you likely already know that the weather here is beautiful. Our area is full of motorcyclists and bicyclists, many of whom use those vehicles as their primary modes of transportation. As you likely also know, our expressways also include plenty of large 18-wheeler and semi-trailer trucks. In a busy world, that’s simply the nature of commerce today.

In an ideal world, all types of vehicles could share the roadways together without accident or incident. Unfortunately, as we all know, this is not always the case. If you’ve discovered our page, chances are you may be contemplating a personal injury lawsuit. Perhaps you are the victim of a truck accident. Or perhaps instead, you are a motorcyclist or a bicyclist who has sustained a severe injury as a result of an accident in which you do not believe you are at fault. Or, maybe your situation is even worse than that – maybe you have sustained the worst loss of all – that of a loved one in a tragic accident on the road.

If any of these situations are yours, at Henderson Law, we are here to help.

Common Causes of Truck, Motorcycle, and Bicycle Accidents

As we all know, sometimes accidents just happen. In certain situations, no one is at fault, or perhaps you unwittingly caused the accident yourself. While this does happen on occasion, it is not usually the case. With respect to truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents, there is often another more prevalent cause: The negligence of another person.

Perhaps your accident was caused by a negligent truck driver who had too little sleep and was taking prescription medication to stay awake. Perhaps you are a bicyclist who was hit by a distracted driver looking down and texting on his phone instead of paying attention to the road. Perhaps you’re a motorcyclist who was hit by a drunk driver of another vehicle. These are only a few examples of many where you may have a claim to recover damages.

What Damages Can You Recover?

Without question, personal injury law is complex. Depending on the situation – and depending on federal law, state law, or both – your situation may give rise to a claim. Moreover, there are often several parties who could potentially be held liable for your accident: the other driver, their insurance company, the party responsible for maintaining the roadway, or the manufacturer if it was a situation where a defective part was involved and responsible for the accident.

Damages can be wide-ranging and can potentially include payment for medical bills, compensation for lost wages and or future earnings, compensation for loss of consortium or wrongful death, and even damages for pain and suffering or disfigurement – to name just a few examples of many. When you consult with a knowledgeable attorney, you will be able to gain a better understanding of your rights under the law and what damages you may be entitled to recover. That is the most important first step toward rebuilding your life and recovering the compensation you deserve after an accident.
