Did a Driver Cause Your Crash? Talk to Us
Motorcycles are an integral part of the California lifestyle, and our state has a long, sometimes contentious history with bikers. But those of us familiar with motorcycle culture know that the stereotype does not always match reality. Most motorcyclists are extremely safe riders who obey all traffic laws. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the cars around them.
At Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers, we believe that Temecula needs to be kept safe for everyone on the road, and that includes motorcyclists. We make it a priority to protect victims of motorcycle accidents and make sure that they are fairly and fully compensated for their injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, call us today at (888) 233-5020 to learn how we can help.
Temecula May Not Be as Motorcycle-Friendly as You Think
Temecula has a reputation for being a quiet Southern California community, with a population of just over 100,000. Located near the south of the Inland Empire, Temecula is perhaps best known as a tourist destination, with day-trippers coming from all over the region for some of its renowned attractions, including the Temecula Valley Wine Country, Old Town Temecula, and Temecula Valley Polo Club. There are also annual events such as the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival and the Temecula Valley International Film Festival.
But the city is not that far away from the large urban centers of Los Angeles and San Diego, and Temecula can’t escape the traffic congestion that plagues all of Southern California. Interstate 15 runs straight through town, with the 215 and the 79 connecting here as well. Temecula is right in the middle of Los Angeles, San Diego, and Riverside, so in addition to daily commuters there is a great deal of commercial traffic as well.
Making matters worse for locals is all of the tourists who visit, especially on weekends and holidays. They tend to be unfamiliar with the local roads, and there is a high rate of inebriated drivers thanks to the area’s many wineries. Temecula motorcyclists need to be on high alert at all times, whether fairly or not.
Motorcycles Are at Greater Risk Than Automobiles
Being involved in a “minor” collision while riding a motorcycle can leave a lasting impression in many ways. Because of the vulnerable nature of riding, it doesn’t take much of a collision to leave a victims with severe injuries, ranging from broken bones to brain trauma, or in the worst instances, death. These injuries may take months to heal, or never heal, leading to lifelong conditions such as paralysis. We see many bikers who are never able to regain the same quality of life after a crash.
With offices in San Diego and North County, the lawyers at Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers have dedicated their careers to advocating for Southern California residents. Our experienced legal team is not afraid to take on insurance companies that would otherwise leave victims facing expensive medical bills on their own.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle or car accident due to someone else’s negligence, we want to help. Our goal is always to make sure you are properly compensated for your injuries so you can focus on what’s really important: your recovery.
