Southern California / Los Angeles Area Motorcycle Accident Trial Lawyers
From offices in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara, our motorcycle accident attorneys serve all of Southern, Central and Northern California including Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, Orange County, RIverside, and San Bernardino County.
Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are typically severe or fatal. People who survive motorcycle accidents may be paralyzed or partially paralyzed, suffer a traumatic brain injury, or have other long-term or permanent injuries that will have profound and lasting impact on the accident victims' life.
Victims of motorcycle accidents may be permanently disfigured by scars or "road rash" and so traumatized that long-term medical, psychological, and rehabilitation services are needed to help them recover.
Our Attorneys Know How to Fight Insurance Companies and Jury Bias
Most jurors' initial bias is that a motorcyclist who is hit by another motorist "gets what he deserves" and does not have the same rights to the road as the driver of a car or other motor vehicle "with doors." Understanding the laws that apply to all motorcyclists - including motorcyclists, is critical to winning a motorcycle case at trial.
Another obstacle is that insurance companies will work hard to show the victim was at fault or partially at fault or that their injuries are not severe enough to warrant compensation. Insurance companies build cases against victims to avoid paying on accident claims - we build cases against negligent drivers and other parties that contribute to accidents so that their insurance companies have to pay.
Motorcycle Accident Settlements and Verdicts
AlderLaw has handled all manner of motorcycle cases – left turns by a car or truck in front of an opposite traveling motorcyclist (the driver failed to see or yield to the biker), right turns in front of a motorcyclist riding behind a car, truck or bus (again, the driver of the vehicle failed to even see the motorcyclist prior to striking him), dangerous roadway surfaces that cause a motorcyclist to crash, inadequate signage on roads typically traveled by bikers, causing a motorcyclist to miss a sharp curve in the road – and understands motorcycle law.
In December 2007, Mr. Alder represented a retired motorcycle officer who, while riding his bike, was struck by a Los Angeles City dump truck. The $15.7 million verdict was one of the highest verdicts ever in Chatsworth Superior Court history. [Verdicts and Settlements]
