Motorcycle Passenger Accidents
Riding on the back of your friend’s bike along Long Beach’s breathtaking Pacific Coast Highway is an incredible experience that not many of us would pass up. For many area residents, motorcycling is a way of life. But all too often the perfect ride ends when an out-of-control driver enters the picture or the operator hits a pothole, and the passenger becomes victim to a crash that was beyond their control. Regardless of the events that occurred, if you are injured as a passenger, you have the right to be compensated for your medical expenses and injuries. If you find yourself the victim of a motorcycle passenger accident, Jamal Injury Law P.C. is here to help you understand your rights and ensure that the responsible party is fully prosecuted.Passenger Injury Rights
When a motorcycle passenger accident unexpectedly occurs, the injured party may not know what to do or what their rights are. This is especially true if a friend or loved one was operating the motorcycle at the time of the accident. In particular, the injured passenger may be worried about how much the accident will cost the operator or what the repercussions will be for them.
In reality, this is the last thing you should be thinking about if you’ve been injured in an accident on a Long Beach roadway. Whether the responsible party is the motorcycle operator or another driver, as long as they have insurance, it will usually cover the accident, which means the insurance company, not your friend, will pay for your medical bills. Because of this, if you’re injured as a passenger your first priority should always be to get medical care.When to Seek Legal Help
Regardless of the circumstances of your accident, you should never feel obligated to pay for your own medical expenses if you are injured. If the insurance company is unwilling to reimburse you for the full cost your injuries, your next step is to enlist the help of a Long Beach motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Because motorcycle passenger accidents can be extremely serious and result in major injuries and high medical bills, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to try to avoid paying for certain expenses to cut costs. At Jamal Injury Law P.C., we unfortunately see this happen far too often in the Long Beach area. But when your accident results in life-altering injuries or disabilities, lost time from work, or physical therapy, it is imperative that the responsible party covers all of these costs. Since these cases are often complex, working with an experienced lawyer is sometimes the only way to receive the full compensation you need to restore your life to normalcy.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident while you were a passenger, your best course of action is to have a Long Beach attorney working for you to secure your insurance claim.
