California has seen an increase in the number of motorcycles on its roads and highways in recent years. And why not? It’s beautiful out here, particularly in our Fontana area. The joy of riding, and the freedom you feel when you’re not enclosed in a vehicle make the potential risks all worth it. Until you have an accident.
If you were riding your motorcycle and were injured in a crash that wasn’t your fault, you may be worried about your health and worried about how you’re going to pay the bills for your medical care. You shouldn’t have to pay any of those expenses yourself if the accident wasn’t your fault.
The compassionate Fontana personal injury lawyers of OnderLaw are prepared to help you through this challenging time. We know how to pursue the compensation you need to get back to your regular life after an accident like this. Don’t wait. Call us today and let us help.
You need an attorney who understands the maze of the legal system and who will have your best interests in mind. OnderLaw is made entirely of attorneys who fit that description. We have represented numerous clients in personal injury cases, including collisions involving motorcycles.
The thing about motorcycle collisions is that not only have you been injured, but you’ll also likely be up against the “bad-boy-biker” stereotype when you’re trying to get compensation for your injuries. Despite the fact that most motorcycle riders are responsible people who are intent on safely enjoying their rides, many people have bought into the media representation of bikers as dangerous. We will stick up for you and combat those stereotypes. We will listen carefully to the facts about your accident, and then we will help you understand how we can pursue the compensation you need.
OnderLaw has a reputation for high-quality legal service and exceptional results. Not only have we been recognized by many of the most prestigious organizations in the legal world, but we also have obtained over $4 billion in settlements for our clients in the last two decades. Our overriding principle is that we treat our clients like family. Your challenges are our challenges. We serve our clients with compassion and the firm desire to make sure they get the money they need to get on with their lives after a horrible accident.
Another way that we put our clients first is that we work on a contingency basis. That means you pay nothing upfront when you hire us. Once we’ve secured money for you through a settlement or a lawsuit, we’ll take an agreed-upon percentage of your compensation. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
