Motorcycle Accidents in California
If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, you need the assistance of a compassionate attorney who will fight for the compensation you deserve. While you focus on recovering from injuries, your attorney should be dealing with the insurance company and handling the legal headaches of filing a claim.
Common Types of San Bernardino Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can occur in various ways, but our lawyers tend to see several types of motorcycle accidents more often than others. Some of the most common accident types include:
- Hazards or obstacles in the road, which can include things like potholes and debris
- Left-turn accidents, which occur when vehicle drivers fail to spot motorcyclists
- Side impact accidents, which are often the result of motorcyclists who end up in the blind spots of drivers
- Speeding, which occurs when drivers follow too closely behind motorcyclists
Regardless of how the accident occurs, you should not be forced to live with the aftermath of someone else’s mistake. A skilled accident attorney can help you hold the responsible party accountable.
Common Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycles lack the type of protection that motor vehicles have, the injuries are often serious. Some of the most common injuries that occur include:
- Leg injuries, including breaks and fractures
- Neck and spinal injuries
- Paralysis and other muscle damage
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injury
Victims often face huge medical bills, lost wages, and various other costs. While the thought that you might be required to pay these debts by yourself is frightening, we can help you pursue compensation from the party who caused your accident.
Do Not Hesitate to Pursue Compensation
Dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming but there are strict deadlines in California in which to bring a claim. The two-year statute of limitations is narrowly construed and if your claim is untimely, it will be dismissed.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
