Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Most motorcycle accidents in the Los Angeles area involving another vehicle are not the fault of the motorcycle rider. More often, inattentive drivers cause the accident by making a turn or lane change into the cyclists’ path. At Wilshire Law Firm, our certified personal injury attorneys have experience representing motorcycle accident victims and will ensure you receive full compensation for all medical expenses, lost earnings, and for any pain and suffering you endured or damage to personal property sustained.
Injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident with another vehicle can be severe. Victims may require the immediate, on-scene attention of EMTs and transportation by ambulance or Careflight to the nearest hospital emergency room. Victims or family members should contact our personal injury attorneys immediately to ensure all required medical treatments are received. If the victim is not currently covered by a medical insurance policy, it is even more urgent that our personal injury attorneys represent your interests.
Motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause long-term pain and suffering or require ongoing medical care as riders lack seat belts, air bags, and a car’s structural protections. The attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm will arrange expert testimony as to the extent and potential duration of your injuries to ensure your complete rehabilitation is entirely funded for severe bodily injuries such as:
- Concussions and other brain injury
- Injury to the spinal cord
- Ruptured or lacerated internal organs
- Fractured or broken bones
- Burns and severe abrasion
Our experienced motorcycle accident injury lawyers are prepared to represent your best interests to insurance companies or to demand justice from the legal system against negligent parties, if necessary, to ensure that your life and health are restored. Most representation is by contingent fee – you have no money out-of-pocket, and the firm is not paid unless it secures a settlement in your favor. For clients without medical insurance, the firm can arrange for a doctor’s care on a lien basis no matter how extensive or costly these services may be
Wilshire Law Firm has the resources to investigate the facts and circumstances of your motorcycle accident to determine the liability and fault of the negligent party and any contributing factors. Our site team can reconstruct the scene of the motorcycle accident to establish facts and provide video evidence. Investigators can locate and collect statements from witnesses to substantiate your version of events or document the negligent party’s careless or reckless driving and previous history driving negligence. The most common acts of negligence in motorcycle accidents were by drivers who:
- Failed to come to a complete stop before turning right on red in violation
- Ran a red light or stop sign without seeing the approaching motorcycle
- Was inattentive or distracted while driving, perhaps by passengers or phone use
- Failed to yield right-of-way to the motorcycle, particularly during lane changes
- Exceeding the legal speed limit on the street and, therefore, unable to avoid a collision
- Did not see the motorcyclist in his or her blind spot before changing lanes
Our attorneys take care of all negotiations with insurance companies and the negligent party so that you can concentrate on recovering from the injuries received. We understand the insurance settlement process and fight for every dollar you are due. Our attorneys are experts in the terms, conditions, and coverage limits of insurance policies and fight hard for your right to compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, medical bills, and lost income against any and all negligent parties.
Wilshire Law Firm has earned a reputation for aggressive, yet honest and ethical, representation for victims of a motorcycle accident. We are a client-focused firm motivated to get the most favorable compensation you deserve.
