Southern California may be the world capital of motorcycle culture, but it is also unfortunately a hotbed of motorcycle accidents, which can lead to expensive medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and fatalities. Whether a motorcyclist is out for a recreational trip across the region or is commuting to beat the traffic, the abundance of heavy traffic and negligent driving by car and truck operators who fail to honor the safety of motorcyclists means that far too many motorcyclists are injured or killed every day, with motorcycle fatalities accounting for a full 17% of all road fatalities across California.
When a motorcycle accident happens, it is important for injured victims and family members of deceased victims to take decisive action to recover losses against all liable defendants. At McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, we provide aggressive representation to plaintiffs seeking recovery for all losses related to motorcycle accidents, and have recovered millions for our clients, including a recent $4.25 million verdict obtained for a motorcycle accident victim.
Rebuilding Your Life After a California Motorcycle Accident
Even with the best protection, motorcycle riders frequently experience severe injuries and death in a motorcycle accident. The accident may have occurred in a split second, but the consequences and struggles for victims and family members can persist for years.
Our personal injury attorneys understand the trauma, confusion, expense, and reduced mobility that follows a motorcycle accident, and are here to do everything we can to facilitate, manage, and direct the process of bringing a personal injury lawsuit after a motorcycle accident. When you retain our personal injury team after an accident, we will immediately begin investigating the accident to determine whether another car or truck driver was negligent in causing the accident and, if so, make your best case for a comprehensive and speedy recovery of all your losses.
Potential defendants in motorcycle accidents include not only other drivers, but also manufacturers of defective motorcycles and parts as well as civil authorities. Common forms of negligence or other liable acts leading to a successful recovery in a motorcycle accident include:
- Improper lane changes
- Drunk, drugged, or drowsy driving
- Distracted driving (texting while driving)
- Defective manufacturing or design of motorcycle or its components
- Defects in road/freeway design or maintenance
