Injured in a motorcycle accident? You can trust our attorneys to fight for your right to compensation.
Riding a motorcycle offers a more immediate sense of the freedom of the open road than driving a car. However, it also offers a greater potential for injury. Compared to vehicle occupants, motorcyclists are much more likely to be seriously hurt or killed in the event of an accident.

How Our Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Help
If you’ve been in a crash, you may be unconvinced that you need a motorcycle accident attorney. While it’s true that lawyers are not always necessary, working with a lawyer may significantly improve the outcome of your case. This is especially true when fault is disputed, your claim has been denied, or/and you have suffered serious injuries. Our Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyers can help you by:
Investigating your case: Our motorcycle accident lawyers have the resources that are required to thoroughly investigate your case. In addition to speaking with witnesses, securing evidence, and reviewing police reports, we can also hire accident reconstruction and other experts on your behalf.
Calculate your damages: We also work with experts and outside professionals when determining the value of your case. Our attorneys never shortchange the amount of damages you have suffered, always fighting for the full value of your losses.
Determine and prove liability: In order to recover 100 percent of the damages you deserve, you must prove the liability of the other party. We handle this part of the claim process for you, so you can focus on your recovery.
Manage your claim: We manage all elements of your claim, including talks with an insurance adjuster, organizing documents, and ensuring that your claim is brought forth within the required time frame. We have a large staff who assist us in being effective.
Negotiate a settlement: You should never accept a first settlement offer; first settlement offers are typically less than a claimant deserves. We negotiate your settlement to improve your chances of getting the highest compensation award possible.
Litigate your case: Finally, in the event that out-of-court negotiations are unsuccessful, our motorcycle accident lawyers can litigate your case in court. We will guide you through this option as needed.

How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
Unlike most motorcycle accident lawyers, Fair Cases Law Group Los Angeles personal Injury lawyers assists with ALL areas of compensation, including property damage to your vehicle. You can rely on us to make sure your injuries, pain, suffering, and other damages are properly documented and seek full and fair compensation for:
Motorcycle damage: Your insurance company will assess the damages to your vehicle. This is something that will likely be included in your motorcycle accident claim. You will be able to seek reimbursement for any vehicle repairs that were done on your vehicle or, if your car was totaled, the cost of a replacement vehicle.
Medical expenses: You may seek compensation for all medical expenses resulting from the accident, including ambulance transportation, emergency room costs, hospital visits, surgery, cost of medication, medical equipment, and more. You can also seek compensation for any type of ongoing rehabilitative therapy you may need to recover completely such as physical therapy or chiropractic care.
Lost income: This includes any wages or income and benefits you may have lost as a result of your motorcycle accident injuries. You may also include lost earning capacity or loss of livelihood. This is often the case where victims have suffered catastrophic injuries such as amputations, paralysis or traumatic brain injuries and are unable to return to work or earn a livelihood due to the car accident.
Pain and suffering: These are known as non-economic losses or damages that cannot be easily quantified. This includes compensation for the physical pain and discomfort you experience after the accident, as well as emotional suffering. Many Los-Angeles motorcycle accident victims suffer from psychological issues such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.

Motorcycle Accidents: Common Causes
Motorcycle accidents, though not necessarily more frequent than other types of accident, are more likely to result in serious injury or death. According to the federal government, per mile traveled in 2006, there were 35 times more deaths from motorcycle accidents than from car accidents.
Motorcycles in Head-On Collisions: Crashes involving motorcycles and other vehicles account for 56% of motorcycle accident deaths. In the vast majority of these accidents, the car strikes the motorcycle from the front --78% of the time. (The car strikes the motorcycle from the rear only 5% of the time.) Head-on collisions between a car and motorcycle are often fatal to the motorcyclist.
Cars Making Left-Hand Turns: The single most dangerous situation for motorcyclists occurs when cars are making left-hand turns. These collisions account for 42% of all accidents involving a motorcycle and car. Usually, the turning car strikes the motorcycle when the motorcycle is:
- going straight through an intersection
- passing the car, or
- trying to overtake the car
These types of accidents are common between two cars as well, but the motorcycle's smaller size makes it even less visible to the turning vehicle. Motorcycles that pass cars within the same lane are even more vulnerable --cars don't expect, and are often surprised by, such motorcycle maneuvers.
Motorcycle Lane Splitting: Lane splitting occurs when a motorcycle drives between two lanes of stopped or slowly moving cars, usually in traffic jams. Lane splitting is a common cause of motorcycle accidents due to several factors:
- the close proximity of the cars to the motorcycle
- the reduced space the motorcycle has to maneuver, and
- the fact that the cars don’t anticipate that any vehicle or motorcycle will be passing them in slowed or stopped traffic.
If an accident occurs while a motorcycle is lane splitting, whether the motorcycle or car is at fault depends on whether lane splitting is permissible in that state, the views of the police officer and judge on lane splitting, and the actions of both the driver of the car and motorcyclist prior to the accident.
Motorcyclist Speeding & Alcohol Use: About half of the accidents involving a single motorcycle are caused by speeding or alcohol use. This statistic is not surprising and these factors play a large role in accidents among cars and other vehicles as well. However, because motorcycles don't provide much protection to the rider, crashes involving speeding or alcohol are much more likely to result in death or serious injury.
Collisions Between Motorcycles and Fixed Objects: Motorcycles colliding with fixed objects accounts for 25% of motorcyclist deaths, but just 18% of car crash deaths. Again, because the motorcyclist is not surrounded by a box of metal and is likely to be thrown far and hard, such accidents are more deadly when riding a motorcycle.
Road Hazards Facing Motorcyclists: Motorcycles face higher dangers from road hazards than do cars and other vehicles. Due to the smaller size and less stable nature of the motorcycle, potholes, dead animals, slick pavement conditions, uneven heights between lanes, and other irregularities or unexpected objects in the road pose a serious safety threat to motorcycles.
