Woodland Hills Motorcycle Accident Lawyer 

Fighting for Injured Motorcyclists Across Los Angeles & Beyond

If you or someone you love has been injured in a preventable motorcycle crash, you may be able to recover damages by bringing a personal injury lawsuit against those at fault.

Although victims of negligence have the right to recompense, securing fair compensation can be a challenge – especially when insurance companies know motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries and sizable payouts, and do everything they can to pay as little as possible.

At Drake Law Firm, our Woodland Hills attorneys help motorcycle accident victims fight for the financial compensation they deserve.

A Closer Look at Motorcycle Crash Statistics in Los Angeles

In California, drivers are obligated to safely operate their vehicles and share the road with motorcyclists. When motorists fail to uphold their legal duties, it can spell disaster for riders.

Motorcyclists are overrepresented in fatal traffic crashes precisely for this reason, NHTSA data shows. Despite accounting for less than 1% of all miles driven on U.S. roads, motorcyclists make up as much as 15% of all traffic deaths.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), motorcyclists face similar risks in Los Angeles County.

  • In 2017, there were 578 motorcyclist fatalities in Los Angeles County. In 2018, there were 488.
  • Roughly 14,500 motorcyclists are injured in LA County traffic crashes annually.
  • Nearly 70% of fatal motorcycle crashes are the fault of a motor vehicle driver.
  • The most common dangerous driving behaviors exhibited by motor vehicle drivers include failure to yield right of way, running a red light, disobeying traffic signals, distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding. 

Liability: Determining Who Is at Fault for a Motorcycle Accident

If another person or entity caused your motorcycle crash, they may be financially responsible for your injuries and related damages. This other party may be:

  • A negligent driver who caused your crash
  • An at-fault trucker or commercial trucking company
  • A manufacturer responsible for a defective product
  • A City or transit operator responsible for a public bus accident
  • A landowner that failed to fix unsafe conditions on their property 

Determining fault requires investigating what led to a crash. At Drake Law Firm, we work with professional investigators and other experts to recreate accidents and identify when and how other parties were negligent. This could be a person failing to check their surroundings for motorcyclists when making a turn or entering an intersection, or a driver operating their vehicle under the influence.

In some cases, multiple parties may share the blame for a crash, such as in multi-vehicle collisions or crashes that occur in heavy traffic. Our attorneys explore liability against all parties who contributed to our clients’ crashes to maximize their financial recovery.

Your Right to Damages

Victims who prove a defendant’s liability can recover compensation for damages such as:

  • Hospital bills, rehabilitation, and therapy
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and lost future earnings
  • Permanent disability 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality or enjoyment of life
  • Other financial and emotional losses

Motorcycle riders are more likely than vehicle occupants to suffer severe injuries in a crash, and often experience life-altering setbacks. This makes it even more important to fight for full compensation.

At Drake Law Firm, we leverage the insight of Attorney Benjamin Drake, who began his career in insurance defense, to help clients fight back against insurance companies that try to blame motorcyclists and dispute valid claims. We know the tactics insurers use and how to prepare cases for the best possible results.
