Ventura Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Riding a motorcycle is not only more economical, but in a city like Ventura, it provides an experience like no other. Ventura has beautiful coastline; not to mention downtown, with its great variety of retail shops, businesses, and restaurants. Unfortunately, Ventura also has a few other characteristics that are not good news for motorcyclists, specifically negligent drivers.
Motorcycle riders have every right to the road as other motor vehicle drivers, but other drivers are often unaware of and inattentive to the fact that they share the road with them. Other times, drivers may be aware of them but fail to take the appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of motorcyclists.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle crash caused by the negligence of another, experienced Ventura motorcycle accident attorney Renée J. Nordstrand-Black of NordstrandBlack PC can help you hold the at-fault party liable for the losses you’ve suffered.

A motorcycle accident does not have the same results as a traffic accident between two cars. A motorcycle rider is not protected by their vehicle as other vehicle drivers are, and so, even in the event of a minor collision, the full force of impact is transferred onto the rider’s body. This results in very serious, if not fatal, injuries. The seriousness of a motorcycle accident in Ventura cannot be underestimated. Common injuries suffered by riders include:
- Broken bones;
- Crushed bones;
- Severe scrapes;
- Brain injury; and
- Spinal cord injury.
These serious injuries would not only require extensive medical treatment, but may also result in permanent impairments or disability that would require lifelong support and care. A seriously injured motorcyclist may need physical therapy and other rehabilitative care for the rest of his or her life, not to mention potential accommodations to live with permanent disability. The emotional stress of such drastic changes can also warrant the need for counseling or other mental and/or emotional support services.
Motorcyclists do not deserve to be burdened with the financial, physical, and emotional hardships associated from such injuries when the accident was not their fault. Filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party could get you the compensation you need to recover, but insurance companies won’t make it easy.
Insurance companies will do everything they can to dismiss an injury claim and/or avoid paying you the settlement you deserve. From manipulating victims into making official statements to trying to get claims thrown out of court, insurance companies are against you every step of the way. However, representation at your side that is familiar with their common tactics can mean the difference in getting the services you desperately need.

After a motorcycle crash caused by the negligence of another, it should not be your responsibility to carry the burden of financial hardship.
