Motorcycle accidents are different from car accidents in a few of the following ways:
- Motorcyclists are exposed to the elements, including rain, hail, and slippery roads that make them more prone to get in an accident than a normal car.
- Motorcyclists are not protected from accidents as well as individuals in a passenger vehicle, which often results in more severe injuries – including death – for the motorcyclist.
- Motorcyclists are harder to see when driving and changing lanes because of their reduced surface area.

Motorcycle accidents can result in many different legal suits, and some severe accidents can have multiple suits involved. Some of these claims include:
- Personal Injury Claims – Most motorcycle accidents result in some sort of injury, especially to the driver (and passenger, where applicable) of the motorcycle. This is because motorcycles do not have the typical protections that passenger vehicles have, such as seatbelts, airbags, and windshields. Therefore, motorcyclists are subject to additional road rash, cuts, bruises, bone fractures, limb amputations, brain injuries, paralysis, and even death.
- Personal Property Damage Claims – One of the most common personal property damages that comes from a motorcycle accident is damage to the motorcycle itself. The motorcycle is usually not salvageable after an accident and has to be totaled. Auto insurance covers some of these costs but is not usually sufficient for all of them. Furthermore, other personal property such as watches, cell phones, laptops and more that are damaged in an accident can be recovered in a personal property damage claim.
- Wrongful Death Claims – If someone that you love was killed in a motorcycle accident du to the negligence or wrongful act of another person, it is likely that you can file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Although these claims can be complex, our lawyers are experts when it comes to wrongful death claims in the state of California and want to help you through this process.
