Motorcycle Accidents Attorney in Orange County.

We Are Here To Help You With Your Motorcycle Accident Problems.

Riding motorcycles is an enjoyable and popular pastime for many Americans. Nothing beats the freedom of the open road, but being involved in an accident with multiple serious injuries can certainly alter a motorcyclist’s life in many ways in a single moment.

Even with the best protective equipment, such as a helmet, gloves, and boots, motorcycle riders are still extremely vulnerable on the road compared to other vehicles. If an accident occurs, they do not have airbags and other life-saving safety features that those riding in a car have.

Motorcycle accidents can be serious, and so can the injuries they caused. If you were injured in a recent motorcycle accident, an experienced Santa Ana motorcycle accident attorney can evaluate your case.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Since a motorcycle rider is much more exposed than vehicle drivers and passengers, it is only natural that their injuries could be worse. Some motorcycle injuries will take months, if not years, to heal from and will cost tens of thousands of dollars or more. Common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident include:

  1. Broken bones and fractures
  2. Spinal injuries
  3. Brain injury
  4. Dismemberment
  5. Paralysis
  6. Organ damage
  7. Severe cuts and lacerations
  8. Disfigurement
  9. Shock
  10. Severe bleeding
  11. Death

When the accident happened due to the poor choices of other drivers, a motorcycle accident lawyer in Santa Ana California should be involved. By hiring your own attorney, you could ensure that you have an advocate who will provide representation to get you the compensation you need to go on with your life.

Settlements for Motorcycle Accidents

The majority of motorcycle accident cases will settle before going to trial. Instead of going before a judge or a jury, your motorcycle accident attorney in Orange County and the attorney for the defense can negotiate a settlement. Settlements take into account all of the plaintiff’s damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, the need for future medical care, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. These negotiations also consider the potential liability of the plaintiff and the amount of auto insurance available.

A settlement is often preferable to a trial as it usually ends the case quicker and is not as risky for both the plaintiff and the defendant. If you agree to a settlement, you will receive the agreed-upon amount and be required to sign a document stating that you will not be able to sue for the same accident in the future. If the defendant refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement, we can represent your rights in court.

Rely On a Santa Ana Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Sadly, motorcycle accident victims cannot and should not rely on the other driver’s insurance company to provide them with fair compensation. These companies usually only care about how much money they can keep in their pockets instead of doing the right thing. Motorcycle accident victims and their families should hire their own attorney who will passionately advocate for their interests and rights.

    I was referred to Phil and Ed by a good friend after my two prior lawyers dropped the ball on my case. I was viciously assaulted at a bar. Phil and Ed took my case on and it was night and day. They stood up for me and kept in regular contact. I never had to guess what was going on with my case. They conducted a thorough investigation and collected crucial evidence that helped prove my case. Initially, the bar refused to take responsibility but eventually the bar relented after the job Phil and Ed did. Ultimately, the case resolved favorably for much more than I expected. Thanks so much again Phil an Ed!

    Not backing down, Phil and Ed pressed forward and never once compromised our position. After the insurance company kept increasing their offer and wanting us to negotiate, Phil and Ed refused to relent and accept anything less than what we initially asked. Basically, their response each time to the insurance company was pay our original demand or we are going to trial. It worked! Eventually, after bidding against themselves, the insurance company finally offered to pay the original amount we wanted. I couldn’t be more impressed with the way Phil and Ed handled my case. They really stood up for me and took on a case that was by no means a simple one. Thanks again fellas!

    I can’t say enough great things about Phil Nghiem. He was on my case from the minute I called him. He got things handled from day one immediately and made me feel supported and taken care of. His office staff was the same way, replied to every email immediately and addressed all of my concerns. I got into a car accident and called him, and I am SO GLAD I did. He got me the compensation I was entitled to and fought for me and my well being the whole way through. He took are of everything so that I just had to worry about getting my health back. He and his staff really care about YOU and do not treat you like another name in the book. They help you step by step and always keep you in the loop. I can’t thank him enough for helping me through this excruciating ordeal.

    I’d like to start off by saying that Phil is incredibly passionate about what he does, he’s very kind-hearted, and he genuinely cares for his clients. I was struck by a hit-and-run driver, who was fleeing from the police in a stolen vehicle with no insurance. Given the circumstances of my car accident, Phil was able to negotiate an incredible sum to be paid out by my insurance. It made my day when he was able to share the news. Most attorneys would have settled earlier in the case for significantly less. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and the end of my investigation was a success. Thank you again Phil, I am eternally grateful for everything that you’ve done for me.

    PS. Phil’s office is quite the drive for me, but he’s very accommodating and we managed to make things work with EASE. So don’t hesitate to contact him regardless of where you’re from because he’ll take care of you.

    I was involved in a rear end accident and was referred to Phil from my chiropractor. Honestly I was nervous to take on an attorney because I was already overwhelmed by everything involving the accident but Phil really put me at ease. He took the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand and wasn’t pushy at all for me to hire him. I’m really glad I chose Phil because I literally didn’t have to worry about anything after that meeting. He set me up with one of his associates named Bri and she was always so quick to respond whenever I had questions. On top of that they worked hard to reduce my other fees and got me a nice settlement too! I’m thankful for all the help they provided and will definitely use them again if I ever need it.

    I’m so glad I hired Phil to help me after my car crash. My car was totaled after a driver ran a red light and struck me. For days, I didn’t have a car to get to work and school. Finally, I decided to hire an attorney and eventually found Phil. He immediately got to work. My accident happened at an intersection where there was a restaurant. Phil personally went out to the restaurant and obtained video footage that captured the crash showing that I was not at-fault. I couldn’t believe that he actually did this. He then helped me get into a rental and get medical treatment. I am completely satisfied with Phil. He truly went above and beyond to get me through this difficult time in my life.
