Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Who Have Your Best Interest in Mind

Motorcyclists know the freedom of the open road and the exhilaration of the wind in their hair during a commute or recreational ride. However, other drivers on the road are often distracted or not paying attention, which can cause serious accidents and injuries. 

While a casual motorcycle ride through diverse scenery and roadways can start out as the perfect pastime, the sheer number of motorcycles on U.S. roads make it almost inevitable that accidents will happen. Motorcycle accidents can lead to devastating injuries, and even those not causing death can leave riders paralyzed or suffering permanent injuries. 

When you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you’ll have to manage your injuries and recovery from the crash, as well as negotiate with insurance companies for compensation for your damages. Unfortunately, the insurance claim process is devised to pay victims as little as possible for their claims, which is why it is so imperative that you contact the best motorcycle accident lawyer available. Avrek Law Firm’s top motorcycle accident attorneys combine more than 50 years of experience to fight for victim’s rights and obtain the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries.

How are motorcycle accident claims paid?

When you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, dealing with insurance companies on top of nursing your injuries can be confusing and overwhelming. Insurance companies have one goal in mind – to pay out as little as possible for each claim. 

Without knowledge of the insurance claim process, motorcycle accident victims can leave a significant amount of money on the table, and that money is lawfully theirs. Insurance companies have a vested interest in protecting their own insured clients, as well as their own investments, which is why it’s always a good idea to speak with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney about your case to understand your rights. 

When any insurance company has to pay on a claim, their bottom line is affected. To reduce the claims they pay, they attempt to negotiate low settlements or deny the claim. Even your own insurance company will do everything they can to settle the case for a low payout, which can affect your recovery now and in the future. 

It is always a best practice to speak to an attorney before speaking with any insurance companies, and especially before speaking with the other driver’s insurance company. Most experts advise against speaking with the other party’s insurer – remember, they aren’t looking out for you. It is always in your best interest to speak to a top motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you in a motorcycle accident claim.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are much more likely to be injured in a crash than the driver of an automobile – motorcycles are less crash-worthy than a car and are also less visible to drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) reported 4,985 died in motorcycle crashes in 2018, making them 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled. In general, motorcyclists are vulnerable due to their limited protection while on the road, and even weather and road conditions can cause serious accidents that wouldn’t occur in an automobile. 

Motorcyclists can take all possible safety precautions before and during their rides, but sometimes accidents cannot be avoided. Motorcycle accidents have a high risk of death, and can cause severe injuries that to expensive medical treatments and a damaging impact on the lives of the victim and their loved ones.

Common accident scenarios include:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Turns in intersections
  • Lane-splitting
  • Distracted or reckless driving
  • Failure to obey traffic laws 
  • Motorcyclist inexperience
  • Traffic and weather conditions

When any of these situations result in a crash, the liable party should be held accountable for their negligence. Speaking to the best motorcycle accident attorney about your claim can help you recover the compensation necessary to pay related medical bills, pain and suffering, and any lost wages.

Frequently Asked Questions


California requires all motorcycle operators wear a helmet that meets federal safety standards. Helmets have been proven to prevent injury and even death to riders and passengers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 80% of motorcycle accidents end in death or serious injury of the driver or the passenger.

A study of all motorcycle accidents over a 10-year period found that helmets saved the lives of more than 7,000 people; more than 6,000 people died because they were not wearing a helmet. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident and were not wearing a helmet, that can also negatively impact the value of your injury case, especially if you suffer a head injury.

Lane splitting is when a motorcycle drives between you and another car, and California is the only state in which lane splitting is legal. While lane splitting can make your commute shorter since you do not have to sit in traffic, you should be extremely cautious while doing so. Many cars do not see motorcycles while they are waiting in traffic because the motorcycle appears so suddenly.

Avrek Law Firm offers a No Fee Guarantee – you don’t pay us a penny unless we win. You will not owe us any attorney fees unless we win or settle your case, and your initial consultation with us in completely free.

The value of your case depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries. Also taken into consideration in the value of your claim are your medical bills, medical treatment, injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It is crucial that you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney so that your claim can be properly evaluated.

If the party that caused the accident and your injuries is uninsured, you may be able to file a claim under your uninsured motorist coverage, but only as long as you have this on your own policy. Uninsured motorist coverage protects you and your family in the case of an accident where the person at fault is either uninsured or underinsured. When this part of a policy needs to be used, the insurance company steps in to cover your damages up to the policy amount without any negative effect on your insurance history or premiums.
