Oxnard Motorcycle Accident Attorney
If you are in need of an Oxnard motorcycle accident lawyer, the Law Offices of Irwin R. "Rob" Miller has particular experience and expertise representing victims of motorcycle accidents in Oxnard and throughout southern California. A collision between a motorcycle and a car or truck can cause devastating injuries or wrongful death to the rider, causing considerable expenses, pain and suffering to the rider or family members. Not only are motorcycle riders much more vulnerable and exposed to injury than the better-protected occupants of cars and trucks, but due to their size motorcycles are more likely to be struck by a negligent driver who is not paying attention or by a reckless or aggressive driver who does not give the rider the room he or she needs to maneuver properly.
It is common for the driver of an automobile or truck to claim that the motorcycle rider was driving negligently or recklessly and caused or contributed to the accident. The accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Irwin R."Rob" Miller understands what it takes to stand up to these charges and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions.
Camarillo Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Our offices have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of injured motorcycle riders. In one case, the defendant entered an intersection against the traffic light and struck our client who was riding his motorcycle lawfully through the intersection, throwing him over the automobile and causing serious fractures to his right arm and leg. The defendant claimed that the light was green, but our Oxnard personal injury lawyer located several witnesses to the accident that the light was red. Rob Miller obtained a $1,000,000 settlement, including damages for past and future medical expenses and lost earnings.
In another case, our client collided with an oncoming one-ton Waste Management truck pulling a trailer loaded with trash dumpsters which extended beyond the edge of the trailer and exceeded the legal width for the trailer. When the truck cut a curve, it encroached into our client's lane, striking our client with one of the trash containers. The injury required our client to have his left leg amputated below the knee. The defendant contended that our client was speeding, riding too close to the center divider line and was an inexperienced, unlicensed motorcycle rider. The jury found the defendant 100% negligent and awarded our client a verdict of $4,269,169.
