Top Legal Advocacy for Motorcycle Crash Victims in Glendale

Too many injured motorcyclists are left feeling like they don’t have many options after being in a wreck that was not their fault.

It would be our honor to help you explore your next steps in filing a claim.

Motorcycle Crash Injuries: The Risks Riders Face

Did you suffer catastrophic injuries in your motorcycle accident? Most motorcyclists do. Even at low speeds, a rider can be bucked off their ride in a collision, suffering serious injuries as they tumble into the street.

Motorcyclists often suffer the following severe injuries:

  • Road rashes
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are about 30x more likely to suffer a fatal injury in a crash when compared to people inside passenger vehicles. Motorcyclists are also about 4x more likely to suffer at least a moderate injury that requires medical attention. Insurance companies are aware of the innate risks of injury that motorcyclists deal with every day, which is why they are so adamant about fighting any and all motorcycle accident claims. The chances of such a claim being expensive are high, so avoiding a payout can be a big win for an insurer.

Maximizing Your Compensation: Motorcycle Accident Damages

How much is the average motorcycle accident claim worth? The total value can get steep due to the severity of the claimant’s injuries, as mentioned, but accurately predicting a case’s worth will still be difficult. Every motorcycle accident claim has a unique worth due to the unique damages that factor into it.

Some of the most expensive damages in your motorcycle accident claim could be:

  • Medical costs: Medical treatments for severe injuries will be expensive, such as corrective surgeries and physical therapy for years. You should not be the one who has to pay for all of your treatments when someone else caused your accident.
  • Lost wages: You probably have missed many paychecks due to your injuries after your wreck. Even if you get disability benefits of some sort, you won’t be making what you normally do. Your claim can demand missing and reduced wages.
  • Pain and suffering: California law allows you to demand non-economic damages in a motorcycle accident claim, like those related to your pain, suffering, and permanent disabilities.

Your motorcycle repair or replacement costs can also be part of your motorcycle accident case. However, pursuing those damages is technically done in a property damage claim. Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Glendale can assist you with it as well.

Identifying the Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Glendale

While insurance companies often like to place the blame for motorcycle accidents on the biker, there are a lot of crashed that occur as a result of driver negligence, rather than biker negligence. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Left-Turn Accidents - These types of accidents are some of the most common and occur most frequently at intersections where drivers fail to yield right-of-way, or fail to see a motorcyclist next to them when making a left-hand turn
  • Dooring Accidents - These types of accidents happen when a parked or stopped vehicle opens their door right in front of a motorcycle and causes them to collide with the car door
  • Poor Road Conditions - Motorcycles can be particularly dangerous when driven on flooded roads or on loose gravel; if cities fail to maintain their roads they may be responsible for any accidents that occur
  • Motorcycle Defects - Poorly built motorcycles have a higher likelihood of malfunctioning and causing an accident
  • Unsafe Lane Changes - When motorists fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes, they may unintentionally cut off or even broadside the motorcyclist


Motorcycle accident claims are very similar to other personal injury claims in the way that they progress. Your lawsuit will most likely follow the below timeline:

  1. Collecting evidence & building your case - First our attorneys will begin to gather evidence and information to support your case. We will work to determine a fair settlement amount based on your injuries and will then put together your demand letter for the insurance company.
  2. Attempting to negotiate with the insurance company - Once we have compiled sufficient evidence for your claim, we'll begin working on negotiating with the insurance company to try to resolve your case pre-trial. This is often in everyone's best interest because it saves money, effort, and time.
  3. The Discovery Phase - If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we will begin preparing your case for trial. This is known as the "Discovery Phase" and involves exchanging information with both sides of the lawsuit.
  4. Going to trial - Once both parties have prepared, your case will go to trial and we will argue for your fair compensation in front of either a jury or a judge.
