Been Injured in a Motorcycle Accident in Los Angeles?
The experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Sally Morin Law have been helping injured individuals get the monetary compensation they deserve from at fault parties for years. We’ve settled large insurance claims out of court and Sally has successfully litigated motorcycle cases in California for over almost two decades.
While the money we help you recover can’t take away the fear, the pain and the heartache caused by a crash, it can help you heal without worry about your case. And that ability to concentrate on your recovery – not the case – is crucial.
What You Should Do After Crash
In order to make the strongest case possible, an expert Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer needs evidence. But securing that evidence should never come at the expense of your health. If you’ve been injured in a crash, here’s what you should do:
- Seek Medical Attention—even if you think you don’t need it. Having your injuries accurately documented is the first step toward building a solid case against an at-fault party. Plus, head injuries are common in motorcycle accidents and can take hours or days to manifest. Get checked out ASAP.
- Collect Evidence—photographic or video evidence from the crash site (including documentation of the location, the vehicles involved, and identification/insurance information from all parties) is crucial but if you can’t collect this evidence yourself a family member or friend can after you’ve seen a doctor.
- Don’t Speak with Insurance Adjusters—insurance adjusters are not your friends. Their job is to minimize your claim—no matter how helpful they appear. Let your motorcycle accident lawyer deal directly with these people.
- Contact a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Los Angeles—navigating the tricky legal roadways can be difficult and every mistake you make could reduce or eliminate the financial award you’re likely entitled to. Get an expert on your side fast.

California’s Motorcycle Culture
For decades motorcyclists have flocked to California. Why? The miles of curvy roads. The scenery. The sunshine. California is head and shoulders above any other state for motorcycle ownership. (There are over 800,000 bikes registered in California—40% more than the next most popular state: Florida.)
And this bike culture isn’t a new trend. Back in the 1950s and 60s when the motorcycle life was establishing itself as a lasting counterculture establishment rather than a passing fad, enthusiasts and fledgling motorcycle clubs relished the freedom that existed for them alone in California. Those pioneers made California home and their love for life on two wheels lives on today.
The Risk of Riding in Los Angeles
But motorcycle riding on the streets of LA is risky. That’s no secret to anyone who grabs the handlebars. There are more automobile crashes in our city but motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles are more likely to result in serious, crippling injuries and even death. The sad fact is that motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in an accident than other motorists.
And no matter how safely you ride, your fate is often not in your hands. A serious accident can happen in the blink of an eye—especially if you’re caught off-guard by negligent or distracted driver. And statistics show that a majority of motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles involving an automobile are caused by drivers, not bikers.
The Most Common Types and Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Los Angeles
Crash data shows that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles are caused by a relatively short list of negligent actions. These include:
- Speeding (the number one contributing factor to all fatal and non-fatal motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles)
- Improper turns
- Failure to yield
These types of accidents often result in motorcyclist being sideswiped by automobiles and—sometimes—even run over. And the car-centric mentality that grabs most Los Angelinos often makes motorcyclists “invisible.” Indeed, one of the most common responses motorcycle accident investigators hear is “I just didn’t see them.”
In short, every biker needs to do what they can to stay visible (day or night) and ride with their head on a swivel at all times. Before an accident you are your best ally. After an accident, we are.
