Motorcycle Accident Injuries & Deaths Are Common

The following are typical injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident:

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

California law allows lane-splitting for motorcyclists. They are legally allowed to ride between lanes when traffic is slow or stopped, but only in a safe and prudent manner. California's roads can be a challenge to even the most experienced biker, but riders of all levels can be involved in a crash.

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

In some cases, the motorcyclist may be at fault. Statistics from the California Highway Patrol indicate that 27 percent of bikers killed in a crash in 2010 had a blood alcohol content (BAC) above the legal limit. Also in that year, 79 percent of motorcyclists involved in fatal collisions and 57 percent involved in injury collisions were determined to be at fault.

Vehicle Defects & Other Products Liability Claims

In cases of vehicle defects, we can file a products liability claim on your behalf and hold manufacturers and others, if applicable, responsible for the faulty products. In cases of wrongful death, we can file a wrongful death suit for surviving family members.

We have been successfully representing victims of motorcycle crashes for nearly 20 years. We work with our team of forensics experts and other accident specialists to determine fault. We are fully committed to getting you the maximum compensation for medical treatment of long-term disabilities, lost wages, and pain and suffering. While we always review settlement offers with you, insurance companies usually offer much less than you deserve. In those situations, we go to court and present a solid case for our position.
