Santa Clarita Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous. In 80% of crashes, either the driver or a passenger sustains permanent injuries. Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can be life-changing, and all too often, someone dies as a result of the collision.
Motorcycle accidents differ from car accidents in several ways, both legally and financially. All parties involved are too quick to place blame on the motorcyclist, even if it is not necessarily their doing.

Few Walk Away From A Motorcycle Accident
We know from years of experience that motorcycle riders are vulnerable to major injuries, including:
- Brain damage (even with a helmet)
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken pelvis
- Neck and back injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Injuries to knees, shoulders and joints
- Road rash and lacerations
- Scars and disfigurement
- Fatality (wrongful death)
Any of these injuries may involve surgeries, lengthy hospitalization and long rehab. Victims may need ongoing medical treatment for years. They may be less employable, if they can work at all. It’s a financial and emotional burden for the victim and the family members. We are committed to taking on the insurance companies to maximize compensation.
Motorcycle Accident Liability
Motorcycle accidents can occur in a variety of ways. The motorcyclist can be involved in a crash with a car, truck or bus. Or they may be injured when the lay the bike down or veer off the road to avoid a collision with another vehicle. We investigate to find the underlying action or negligence of the other driver(s) that led to our client’s crash.
Many motorcycle accidents occur when a car makes a left-hand turn in front of a motorcyclist, striking the motorcyclist in the process or forcing him/her to swerve and crash. Oftentimes, this type of accident occurs because the driver of the car did not see the motorcycle due to its small size and/or did not expect a motorcycle to be approaching or passing it on the left. Other motorcycle crashes occur when drivers change lanes on the highway, rear-end the motorcyclist in traffic, fail to yield the right-of-way at a traffic light or stop sign, or drive while distracted such as texting while driving.
