Motorcyclists have the same rights to the road as other vehicles. Unfortunately, when cars and trucks fail to share the road motorcyclists can end up seriously injured. San Diego lawyer Michael Kielty has 30 years of experience handling motorcycle accident claims. He is committed to helping injured motorcyclists recover the compensation they need to treat their injuries, pay their bills and continue supporting their families.
Located in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego, California, the Law Office of Michael J. Kielty assists clients throughout San Diego County to help get their lives back after motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists are vulnerable to negligent drivers. Without the protection of a car or a truck, accidents often leave motorcyclists with serious injuries. In some cases, these accidents may even prove to be fatal.
Accidents that result in severe injuries can have a devastating impact on entire families. The injured victim will often endure serious pain and suffering, making him or her unable to work which can cause a financial strain that is felt by the entire household. When individuals are forced to miss work while recovering, the effect of these lost wages and medical bills can seem overwhelming. If the injuries are permanent, an individual may never work again and may even require around-the-clock medical care.
Attorney Michael Kielty understands what is at stake. That is why he works hard to help accident victims pursue the full and fair compensation they deserve. He also represents families in wrongful death actions when an accident proves to be fatal. He understands that no amount of compensation can make up for what was lost. However, he can help send a message that negligent and reckless acts will not be tolerated.
When people turn to attorney Kielty, they know that their accident claim will be fully evaluated and researched. As a former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Kielty knows what it takes to build a strong personal injury claim the insurance company cannot ignore. Mr. Kielty will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, and he will work closely with medical and vocational experts to make sure the full nature and extent of the injuries are understood. Armed with this information, he will build a strong claim designed to maximize the amount of compensation.
When faced with a hit-and-run accident, or an accident where the other driver does not have adequate insurance coverage to fully compensate a client, Mr. Kielty looks at all avenues of potential recovery to try and maximize a client's financial recovery, including the clients own insurance.
Attorney Kielty is a skilled negotiator and a tough litigator. He works closely with accident victims and their family members to explain their legal options, and the short-term as well as long-term consequences each path will have on their lives. Once clients have a clear understanding of the road ahead, they can make considered, informed decisions that best meet their needs and the needs of their family.
