Tenacious Legal Representation For Injured Motorcyclists
Motorcycle crashes give rise to the most severe injuries of all motor vehicle accidents. In fact, motorcycle fatalities now account for 13% of traffic deaths in the United States. In California alone, 394 motorcyclists and their passengers were killed in 2009, and thousands more were injured.

Motorcycle Accidents Demand Skilled Representation
Research shows that juries are notoriously biased against motorcycle operators who are injured in auto accidents, often assuming that the accident was the motorcyclist’s fault – even when all of the evidence points to the contrary. That is why it is essential that you hire an attorney with extensive experience in motorcycle accident cases. I have over 30 years of experience successfully handling all types of complex personal injury cases.
Motorcycle accidents have several common causes, including the following:
- Failure to see motorcycles
- Defective vehicles or tires
- Hazards in the roadway
- Adverse weather conditions
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
No matter what the cause, motorcycle accident injuries can have a devastating impact on your financial and emotional well-being. Being unable to go to work or care for loved ones can add to the stress. At my law firm, I can guide you through the complex process of filing a personal injury lawsuit so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
California is one of the absolute best places for motorcycle riders. Terrific weather and scenery make it possible for riders to get out on the open roads almost any day of the year.
However, it is still a very dangerous place for motorcycle riders. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to know what to do to ensure that you get the compensation you need and deserve.
As an attorney who has handled personal injury cases for over three decades, I know how to prepare the strongest possible case for full and fair compensation from the insurance companies.
I will work hard to make your experience with the system a positive one. I have a long history of obtaining results for my clients, and I am confident that I will help you find a reasonable solution to your current legal concerns.
Protecting Your Right to Compensation
The most important thing you can do after you have been injured in a motorcycle accident is to seek qualified medical attention.
You need to be able to promptly document that your accident caused your injuries and the significance of those injuries. Otherwise, insurers may contest your claims.
Some of the most common injuries I have seen connected to motorcycle accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries, even if using a helmet
- Broken bones after riders are thrown from motorcycles
- Amputations from being trapped under or between vehicles
- Scarring from contact with the pavement
These injuries can often result in extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Dealing with the expenses associated with this care can be difficult when you are out of work.
Insurance companies may try to talk you into settling your claims hastily so that you have some financial resources available to pay for medical and living expenses. Under financial pressure, motorcycle victims sometimes do not take into account the long-term economic and lifelong pain and suffering losses that may be involved in their injuries.
Before engaging in any discussions with the other parties involved, talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about your case. This is the only way that you will be able to truly understand what your claim may be worth.
