A San Francisco motorcycle accident from The Doan Law Firm at (405) 991-0000 will fight hard to ensure that you receive proper and full financial compensation in your case.
Each motorcycle accident case is unique. With that noted, there are types of losses that oftentimes do result in compensation following a motorcycle accident. These include:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- emotional distress
- permanent disfigurement
- permanent disability
- lost income
- property damage
In many motorcycle accidents, the victim ends up requiring extensive medical care and treatment. Associated pain is chronic and persists for an extended period of time. Going back to work in the immediate future simply is not an option. The lack of work will result in lost income.

Depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident, you may also be entitled to what are known as punitive damages in California. Punitive damages, also known as exemplary damages, are additional compensation awarded to you.
Punitive damages are awarded in a California personal injury case when the conduct of the negligent party is considered particularly reckless or egregious. In addition to providing you additional money in your case, punitive damages are also intended to provide punishment to the person who caused the accident in the first instance.
