When your Sunday ride or a morning commute has turned into tragedy, know that you have options. You are not alone. We can help you hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for their negligence.

Motorcycle accidents are common throughout California. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Motorcycles are Harder to See: Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles on the road like trucks, cars, and buses. This issue is particularly critical at intersections and on freeways where the vast majority of motorcycle collisions happen. Many times, the driver of a vehicle that strikes a motorcycle does not see the biker before it is too late.
  • Hazards on the Road: Sticks, roadside debris, potholes, and oil slicks can all be potentially fatal for bikers.
  • Distracted Drivers: Many motor vehicle operators today drive while distracted. They could be eating, drinking, texting, talking on their phones, or doing any number of other things that inhibits their ability to see or avoid hitting a motorcycle.

Personal Injury FAQ

Why do I need an attorney?

Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side following your accident can be the difference between receiving fair compensation and receiving nothing. Our attorneys will do their best to ensure that you are taken care of financially by helping you obtain compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure all evidence is properly gathered and used to support your claim.

How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?

In California, an accident victim has two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. If a governmental entity is a cause of your injuries, you may have to file a claim with the appropriate governmental entity within six months. Then you will have to file a lawsuit in a certain amount of time, depending on how the entity responds to the claim. These are strict time periods. If they are not adhered to, you will not be able to recover damages for your injuries. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you do not lose the ability to bring your claim, and to start gathering evidence as soon as possible.

What if I was also responsible for my injury?

California personal injury victims are entitled to recover compensation from any liable party, even if they are partially to blame for the accident. California law follows the theory of comparative fault, which means that you can recover compensation for an accident, but your award will be reduced by your own degree of negligence.

Should I accept an offer from the at-fault party’s insurance company?

When you suffer a serious injury, you will most likely be contacted by the at-fault party’s insurance company. They will try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. They may even attempt to use things you say after an accident to deny your claims. An experienced injury attorney will be able to help you deal with insurance companies and help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

How do you determine the value of my claim?

When determining the value of your claim the court will take into consideration multiple factors: medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney will help give you the best chance of maximizing your recovery.

We provide free, no-obligation consultations for all potential clients, and we never collect fees unless and until your case has been resolved successfully in your favor.
