    What does a motorcycle accident lawyer do?

    A motorcycle accident lawyer serves as the accident victim’s representative and advocate. They take the steps necessary for the victim to receive compensation while focusing on maximizing the amount. This allows the injured party to focus on treatment and recovering from their injury while our firm focuses on maximizing the victim’s compensation. If necessary, they take the case to court and speak on the victim’s behalf.

    Our motorcycle accident lawyers navigate the complex compensation system for motorcycle accident victims. Not only do we work towards the best result for you, but we also move through the process as efficiently as possible.

    Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits

    Can I sue after a motorcycle accident in California?

    Yes, you can sue after a motorcycle accident in California if the accident is someone else’s fault. Negligence, or a lack of ordinary care by another driver, is the standard for being at fault for a motorcycle accident. Riders have the full protection of state laws that allow accident victims to claim compensation for their damages.

    What can I receive in compensation for a California motorcycle accident?

    You can claim your actual losses in a California motorcycle accident, including non-economic damages:

    • Emergency and urgent care
    • Tests, procedures, examination, and patient stabilization
    • Nursing care, residential care, hospitalization, in-home assistance
    • Medications
    • Physical and occupational therapy, treatment for mental injuries
    • Property damage
    • Lost income
    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Emotional suffering
    • Scars, disability, and disfigurement

    You can collect the total of your economic losses and a fair amount for pain, suffering, and lifestyle impact. Motorcyclists deserve to be treated the same under the law as any other person hurt in a crash. California law does not place any limits on compensation for motorcycle accident victims.

    How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit in California?

    You have two years to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit for personal injury or three years for property damage. (Cal. Code of Civ. Proc. § 335.1; § 338). You file the lawsuit by submitting a summons and complaint and paying the filing fee to the appropriate court. The time limit to begin a case against a government entity is only six months.

    It may also be appropriate to pursue a claim through insurance, but getting a formal claim filed by the deadline is critical. Don’t fall for the insurance company’s stall tactics – having a case pending with insurance does not stop the time limit to file a legal claim.

    How long does it take to get a motorcycle accident settlement?

    Each case timeline is different. Because injuries are often serious in motorcycle claims, it’s important not to rush. Working with a lawyer can speed the investigation and legal timeline so that you can get the financial relief that you deserve as efficiently as possible.

    Motorcycle License and Riding Laws in California

    What is the law for motorcycle licenses in California?

    California law requires motorcyclists to have the appropriate license. There are generally two categories – an M1 or an M2 license. CMSP (California Motorcyclist Safety Program) education and training requirements vary based on the applicant’s age. However, you can still make a claim even with an invalid license.

    Is lane splitting on a motorcycle legal in California?

    California does not have a law that prohibits lane splitting. Not only is it legal, but other motorists can’t do things like open their doors or take other measures to impede the motorcyclist. California Vehicle Code Section 21658.1 defines lane splitting as moving between rows of stopped or moving vehicles in the same lane.

    Can two motorcycles ride side by side in California?

    Motorcycles are allowed to ride two-by-two in a lane in California. It is permitted where there are at least two lanes of travel in the same direction. At all times, riders should be aware of their surroundings and proceed with reasonable caution.

    Motorcycle Helmets and Comparative Negligence in California

    Do you have to wear a motorcycle helmet in California?

    All motorcyclists in California must wear a federally-approved helmet. (California Vehicle Code 27803)

     

    Does my wife or husband have a claim?

    Yes. In California, a spouse of an injured party may make a claim for what is referred to legally as “Loss of Consortium”. Loss of Consortium is a form of “Non-Economic” damages that can be awarded to the spouse of an injured party.

    California Civil Jury Instruction (CACI) No. 3920 states that when a spouse is harmed, their wife or husband may make a claim for the loss of their “companionship and services”, which includes “loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support, sexual relations, and/or the ability to have children.”

    Can not wearing a helmet be used against me in a California motorcycle accident case?

    Failing to wear a helmet as a motorcyclist is risky. Not only does it increase the likelihood of serious injuries in an accident, but it may be used against you legally. California law allows the defense to raise failing to wear a helmet as comparative fault.

    Even if you weren’t wearing a helmet, it’s worth picking up the phone to talk to us about your case. You may still have a good case – even if you weren’t wearing a helmet. You may get less in compensation, but you may still recover. Our lawyers can give you a personalized consultation about the factors that may impact your monetary award.

    Marchelle Y

    Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

    They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
