Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
We can investigate your motorcycle accident to determine its cause and why that puts the liability on the other party. The goal is to get your liability as low as possible, down to 0% if we can. As a claimant with 0% liability, you can demand 100% of your damages from the defendant, such as your medical bills, lost wages, motorcycle repairs, pain, and suffering.
For complicated motorcycle accident cases, we can work with accident reconstruction experts and mechanics. Their insight from their respective fields might be able to uncover new evidence that works in your favor, and that clearly shows the cause of your wreck.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include drivers who:
- Break the speed limit
- Follow too closely
- Turn left in front of a motorcyclist
- Change lanes without checking blind spots
Road damage can cause motorcycle accidents, too, like a pothole that bucks a rider off their vehicle. If that happens, then the defendant could be a municipal department of transportation, which complicates the lawsuit a bit. Typically, suing a government entity is difficult due to different liability rules and regulations, not to mention a shortened statute of limitations to begin the claim.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcyclists are often severely injured in a crash because they have barely any protection. A helmet and padded jacket can only do so much, after all. If you were catastrophically injured in your motorcycle accident, then we want to know about it, so we can help you fight for all the compensation that you need to recover.
Injuries often suffered by motorcyclists include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- And others
Is It Worth Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
Taking your case to an insurance company can be intimidating, especially if you have never dealt with an injury claim before. While you don’t need to hire a motorcycle accident attorney, you probably should.
With an attorney leading the way on your case, you don’t have to worry about:
- Complexities of liability law
- How to investigate a crash
- Negotiating with an insurance company
- Courtroom/litigation procedures
The truth is that there are many steps and phases to an injury claim. At any point, a misstep could be seriously harmful to your case. If you let a lawyer manage it for you, then you don’t have to worry about making a mistake because all of their experience becomes yours.

Motorcycle Accident FAQ
How long will a motorcycle accident case take?
A straightforward personal injury case can take a few months to conclude if the defending insurance company is willing to settle. A complicated case that goes to court can take longer than a year. Predicting an average is therefore difficult. What is more important is that you work with a motorcycle accident attorney who can minimize the delays in your case as much as possible.
Can you sue if you weren’t wearing your helmet?
You should always wear your helmet when riding your motorcycle because it can protect you from the worst effects of a head injury. Not wearing your helmet can also damage the legitimacy of your claim. When the other insurance company catches word that you didn’t have a helmet on, it will argue that you contributed to the severity of your injuries. It will be hard to counter that argument, too.
Does lane-splitting make you liable for a crash?
Only California has a law that makes lane-splitting – or riding between occupied lanes of traffic to pass a vehicle or approach an intersection – legal. If you lane-split in New York, then it could increase your liability if you are in a crash while lane-splitting because that behavior is unlawful.
