California Motorcycle Accident Statistics

With nearly 800,000 motorcycles registered in the state, California has nearly 20,000 accidents each year. Due to the lack of protection, most accidents result in injury or death, and the likelihood of a fatal accident can be dozens of times higher than auto accidents.

Nearly 75 percent of motorcycle accidents involve a motorcycle and a car, and more than half of all motorcycle accidents take place after sunset.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

In California, motorcycle accidents can be caused by a number of reasons, including:

Distracted driving

Speeding

Road rage

Drowsy driving

Congested freeways

Failure to obey traffic rules

Reckless driving

Poor road conditions

Poor visibility

Reckless Driving

Duty of care

Other motorists owe you and your loved ones a duty of care by acting safely while on the roadway, while municipalities, counties, and the state must provide reasonably safe road conditions. A breach in this duty can result in severe, life-changing injuries. Medical care, missed work, and loss of life are difficult to handle, from a financial and emotional perspective.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accident injuries can be catastrophic since nothing protects the rider from external forces.

By hiring a California motorcycle accident lawyer, we can help you go after a claim for the following types of accident injuries:

  • Head and brain injuries

  • Back, neck and spinal cord injuries

  • Internal organ damage

  • Broken bones

  • Loss of limbs

  • Wrongful death

These injuries can significantly impact your quality of life, and it is even more frustrating to endure them knowing that the person who caused them could have acted with more diligence and care toward you and other motorists.

Every case is unique

While this list is not exhaustive, it illustrates the types of compensation potentially available for those who have been injured in California motorcycle accidents and were harmed by others' negligence.

Every case is unique, which means that it is difficult to estimate what your claim may be worth.

Beware the friendly insurance company

The insurance company has but one goal in mind, and that is too make you go away for as little money as possible. If you are injured in an accident, you will be contacted by an adjuster from the other party’s insurance. While the adjuster may seem solicitous or act like he is concerned for your welfare, be advised that nothing could be further from the actual truth.

Having an attorney on your side can make a big difference in the way the case is treated, because they understand the tactics used by insurance companies. Amicus Legal Group can help you deal and negotiate with the insurance companies successfully, so that you receive a fair and just amount for the injuries that you have suffered, and are willing to take a case to trial if necessary.

A Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help

Insurance adjusters go to great lengths to mitigate their exposure on personal injury claims. You can be sure that they will work to uncover any admissions of fault, even on seemingly innocuous statements. Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney will protect you in the following ways:

Act as a “communication buffer” between you and opposing parties

Gathering and preserving evidence

Ongoing counsel throughout the process

Use refined negotiation skills to get you the compensation you deserve

Documenting your claim in case it goes to trial

No upfront fees to receive legal help

Can I Afford a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

Yes, you can. You have enough to worry about without the added stress of affording a motorcycle accident attorney. Instead of requesting a traditional retainer, Amicus Legal Group takes cases on a contingency fee agreement. Simply put, our firm earns NOTHING unless we get a recovery for you.

Do You Have an Actionable Claim?

Fighting with an insurance company or going to court are daunting tasks for most victims to endure. If you are like many Californians, focusing on your recovery and health following an accident is your top priority. You are not alone in feeling this way.

We empathize with what you are going through, especially when it comes to establishing whether you have a viable claim. We will never represent a case that we do not believe will benefit from hiring an attorney, no matter what.

Client Testimonials

Five Star California Law Firm
Attorney John Paul-Serrao helped us to win our case against the insurance company after we were involved in a traffic accident where our car was rear ended, we tried to handle it ourselves with the insurance company and they did not want to cooperate with us, so we hired Mr. Serrao and he was able to get us a settlement above with the insurance company was willing to pay. I would highly recommend him.
Lupe G.

John-Paul is a superb attorney. He was my mentor when I was in law school, and now as an attorney I still go to him for advice on complex cases. When my brother required representation I referred him to John-Paul. That is how highly I think of JP as an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation.

Kit Westbrook

John-Paul is an extremely effective criminal defense attorney. The one thing that makes him stand out from other defense attorneys is that he talks to his clients to learn the circumstances surrounding their incident and then he makes a forceful and articulate argument in defense of his clients. I recommend my clients to John-Paul when they are in need of a criminal defense attorney because I know he will stand up for them.

Stephen Rinka

John-Paul is well known in our community as a smart and effective criminal defense lawyer who is sensitive to his clients’ situations and responsive to their needs. I refer my clients to him with confidence when they need help with the criminal justice system.

Lawrence Brock

Occasionally you meet another attorney who is so impressive both personally and professionally that you want to be affiliated with them in any way you can both personally and professionally. That is how I feel about John-Paul. I not only consider him one of the finest attorneys I know, but I now proudly call him my friend. He is among the very best.

David Booth

Mr. Serrao worked on my DUI charge earlier this year and all I can say is WOW! Not only did he keep me updated with the case but his knowledge of the process helped calm my nerves, which was very important to me. He showed care for me as a client and I can’t thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a quality criminal defense attorney.

Derrick J.

I had the pleasure of working a very large scale drug case with Mr. Serrao, representing co-defendants. Mr. Serrao was a pleasure to work with. Highly skilled and very aggressive in his advocacy on his client’s behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Serrao for anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.

Babak Farahan

John-Paul took my civil case when no one else would because other lawyers didn’t have confidence in my daughter who has special needs to testify, if needed. John-Paul won her case against the school district without a jury because he cared about my child, believed she was honest and deserved justice. He still doesn’t mind taking my calls whenever I have a question regarding her case.
