Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
The motorcycle accident attorneys at RiderzLaw have over 20 years of experience representing injured motorcyclists throughout Los Angeles County and the State of California.
Unlike other injury lawyers, the attorneys at RiderzLaw focus on motorcycle accident cases. We eat, sleep, and breathe motorcycles. We ride motorcycles on the streets and trails throughout Los Angeles County and all of SoCal. We own and manage a motorcycle racing team that competes in California and across the globe. Our knowledge and love of motorcycles gives us a unique advantage over other lawyers, because we understand why motorcycle accidents happen and understand that most times, it's NOT the motorcyclist's fault!
We know that inattentive drivers often fail to notice motorcycles, and cause accidents by things like:
• Turning left in front of a motorcyclist;
• Sideswiping a motorcyclist who is LEGALLY splitting lanes; or
• Rear-ending a motorcyclist at a stoplight or stop sign.
We see these types of accidents every day. We also understand that many non-motorcyclists and police officers are biased against motorcycles and assume (often wrongly) that an accident was the motorcyclist's fault. Through our decades of experience, we know how to overcome this bias and win in court. We have won numerous cases where the police report blamed the motorcyclist for the accident!
The initial consultation at RiderzLaw is always free and we don’t collect a fee unless we win your case. If you are a rider and have been injured or suffered damages, our Los Angeles motorcycle attorneys can help. Please email or call us for a free consultation: (888) 5-RIDERZ.
When to Turn to a Motorcycle Lawyer in LA
In any case where you’ve suffered injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident, you might want to consider speaking to an attorney to protect your rights. Insurance companies only care about one thing: paying you as little as possible! A good motorcycle lawyer can make sure that you don’t get tricked by the insurance companies or bullied into a bad settlement. Our motorcycle accident attorneys know how to get you the most compensation possible for things like medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, bike repair, etc.
If you’ve had a motorcycle accident, call RiderzLaw for a free consultation and case evaluation. If you are unable to come to our office, we’ll ride to you! Our lawyers have a 99% success rate and charge no fee unless we win your case.
How Fault is Determined in Los Angeles Motorcycle Accidents
The first thing a motorcycle accident lawyer does in order to pursue recovery for your losses is to identify the party or parties who may potentially be liable, i.e., figuring out who can pay for your injuries. California law allows for more than one person to be at-fault for an accident—not just the driver of the car that hit you! Aside from the driver of the other vehicle, some other potential at-fault parties may include:
• Motorcycle or car manufacturers
• Safety equipment manufacturers
• Motorcycle / car repair companies
• Government agencies (e.g., road maintenance and hazards)
• Employers of any person driving a vehicle involved in the accident
A good lawyer will investigate the circumstances with respect to the accident location, looking at both applicable California law and local Los Angeles rules and ordinances. To win your case, your lawyer must fight to prove breach-of-duty, causation, and damages in your favor. California is a comparative negligence state. If multiple parties are to blame, the court will assign a percentage of fault to each party and compensation will be based on this percentage. Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation for your losses!
Because we are experienced riders and motorcycle advocates, we view accidents differently than most lawyers. We are able to successfully explain how other parties were either all or partially to blame for a motorcycle accident. Indeed, we have won millions of dollars for injured motorcyclists when their previous lawyer thought they had no case! Put simply, choosing the right lawyer for your motorcycle accident case makes all the difference.
How our Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Fight for Accident Victims
As anyone who rides in LA knows, many people have a bias against motorcyclists—including the police. This can make it more difficult for a rider to recover the money they deserve from an accident, as people automatically assume it’s the rider’s fault—even when it’s not! As riders ourselves, we know how to combat these negative stereotypes and get justice for injured motorcyclists.
Our lawyers love motorcycles and are proud members of the LA motorcycle community. From their morning commute on the streets of Los Angeles, to charity rides and weekend events, RiderzLaw lawyers are involved with and committed to their fellow riders in the Los Angeles motorcycle scene. We also support local, national, and international motorcycle racing events.
Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in LA
Motorcycle riders are no more dangerous to public safety than other drivers. In fact, most motorcycle accidents are caused by the other person. Motorcycle accidents are most often caused by:
• Distracted drivers
• Inattentive drivers who fail to see motorcyclists
• Cars failing to respect lane splitting
• Driving under the influence
• Aggressive drivers
• Inclement weather
• Roadway conditions
Common Los Angeles Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to injury than persons driving other vehicles because they have limited protection against collisions. Our attorneys will help you get maximum compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and missed work. Motorcycle injuries our lawyers handle include:
• Road rash
• Neurological Damage
• Turning left in front of a motorcyclist;
• Broken bones
• Paralysis or spinal conditions
• Superficial wounds (cuts, scraps, bruising)
• Wrongful death
If you’ve suffered a motorcycle injury, our team can connect you with the best medical experts in Los Angeles - local doctors and medical professionals that specialize in treating motorcycle injuries. Always remember: wearing proper motorcycle safety equipment, including a DOT approved helmet, can help minimize your injuries if you’re in an accident.
What is the Value of My Motorcycle Accident?
Determining how much your claim is worth starts with valuing the financial, physical, mental, and emotional damages of an accident. Damages can be categorized as either “special damages” or “general damages.” Special damages are calculated at an exact value in response to quantifiable financial losses such as medical treatments, lost wages, or costs to repair your bike. General damages relate to things like “pain and suffering.” General damages are more difficult to quantify and require a skilled lawyer to argue the appropriate amount. Our motorcycle attorneys have years of experience identifying and monetizing general damages resulting from an accident such as pain, suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, or lowered quality of life. For serious injuries, general damages can be in the millions of dollars.
The RiderzLaw motorcycle accident lawyers will maximize the amount of money your case is worth by fully evaluating your claim and seeking the highest recovery possible for your losses. And if the insurance companies won’t pay what’s owed, we take them to court!
