Ortega Law’s expertise in medical cases is put to good use in handling automobile and motorcycle accidents with significant injuries. Each case is unique and determining what happened in a motorcycle or accident case is crucial. We examine several different factors, such as analysis of roadway design, engineering, data analysis and human factors, particularly where the participants are seriously injured or killed. Because we want to provide quality service to our clients, we do not take large quantities of these cases. Instead, we focus on accidents where the injuries have been significant or fatal, and where we believe our expertise can help a client receive a fair recovery for an accident caused by someone else.
Motorcycle accidents bring distinct issues to the analysis. The dynamics of motorcycle riding and handling are different than a four-wheeled vehicle. There are defenses which may be asserted — the lack of a helmet, for example — which must be addressed through reason and competent engineering. While helmets and seat belts are good ideas, they don’t necessarily prevent all types of injuries in every case. Those defenses should only be applicable when an injury would not have occurred or would not have been as severe had the device been used.
Our experience in handling complicated accidents over many years of practice gives us the ability to evaluate these claims, provide appropriate advice to our clients and recover fair and reasonable amounts based on the facts.
