California Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Operating a motorcycle can be a fun and exhilarating experience, but motorcyclists face significant dangers on the roadway. Unfortunately, the careless or negligent actions of other drivers often lead to motorcyclists sustaining severe injuries when a collision occurs.
At Licata & Yeremenko, our team is here to help if you need a California motorcycle accident attorney. We regularly assist injured motorcyclists in the Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County areas. Our attorneys understand what it takes to fully investigate these claims and help our clients receive just compensation for their losses.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Be Devastating
Data available from the California Office of Traffic Safety reveals there are more than 870,000 motorcycles registered in the state of California, more than any other state across the country. Accordingly, California has its fair share of motorcycle collisions. During the latest reporting year across California, nearly 13,000 motorcyclists suffered injuries as a result of vehicle accidents.
Many vehicle drivers tend to disregard the safety of motorcyclists on the roadway. When we investigate these incidents, we often discover the following types of driver behaviors lead to motorcycle crashes:
- Following a motorcyclist too closely
- Improperly passing motorcyclists
- Making a turn into a motorcyclist
Additionally, vehicle drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs and those distracted by their cell phones and other devices pose significant dangers to motorcyclists on the roadway.
Our attorneys are here to help motorcyclists who have sustained the following severe injuries as a result of a collision:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Open head wounds
- Spinal cord trauma
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Road rash and lacerations
- Crush injuries or amputations
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
Our attorneys work hard to help our clients receive proper medical care and just compensation for their physical and/or mental injuries.
Time Limit To File A Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit
It is important to file a motorcycle accident claim as soon as possible. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date the injury(s) occur. Thus, motorcycle injury victims have a two-year window within which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent driver. However, the reporting deadlines for insurance carriers are much shorter than this. Failing to let the insurance carriers know an accident occurred promptly could result in the claim being delayed or even denied altogether.
