Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in San Diego, California

Our San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers are available to help you every step of the way as we take on big insurance companies and make sure that you get the care you need.

Unfortunately, after experiencing a motorcycle accident, insurance companies may not have your interests as their priority. Instead, insurance companies may try to quickly get a statement from you and try to settle it as soon as possible before you even address any of your injuries or get treated. We recommend that you speak to our attorneys after experiencing a motorcycle accident in San Diego.

Motorcycles offer a great way of getting around town, especially for San Diego residents who experience traffic daily. Having a motorcycle and driving through traffic is a great alternative to vehicles. Although there are great benefits to having a motorcycle, motorcyclists are more likely to suffer severe injuries compared to other drivers.

What causes motorcycle accidents in San Diego?

A common cause of motorcycle accidents in San Diego is drivers who are not willing to share the road with other motorcyclists. Although lane splitting is legal in San Diego, many drivers choose not to share the road with motorcyclists, which could lead to severe injuries.

Other drivers may also not use proper turn signals or may have the motorcyclist in their blind spot, which leads to a collision.

What should I not do after a motorcycle accident in San Diego?

After a motorcycle accident in San Diego, you should speak to an attorney. An attorney will be able to better help you and take on your case. But, you should avoid giving any statements to insurance companies or police officers. After a motorcycle accident, you may be dazed or confused, and may even be under excruciating pain. You may not be completely aware of what you are saying. That is why we recommend that you refrain from talking to anyone until you have a lawyer.

Our firm has seen multiple instances where accident victims have been taken advantage of by insurance companies. Insurance companies approach an accident victim and negotiate for an amount that does not even take into consideration the costs needing to treat injuries.

Our motorcycle accident attorneys will help you get the maximum compensation for your injuries

Having an experienced San Diego attorney is crucial to making sure that you get the compensation you need. An experienced attorney will represent your rights and make sure that you get the legal help you need.

Could I recover compensation from my insurance company after a motorcycle accident in San Diego?

After an accident in San Diego, you could either file a claim with your insurance company or file a lawsuit depending on the circumstances. We recommend speaking to our attorneys for a better idea of what steps will work for your case.

  • When you file a claim with an insurance company, you will have to file the claim with the other party or with your insurance company. Sometimes, the other party’s insurance company may not reimburse you for all your expenses. This means that you will then have to file a claim with your insurance company.

  • When you file a lawsuit, you will be going after the other party independently. This is filed in the San Diego courthouse.

Are motorcycle accidents common in San Diego?

 Motorcycle accidents are very common in San Diego, especially in the last couple of years as more consumers started to purchase motorcycles to move around the city faster. Unfortunately, with the increase in motorcycle usage, there has also been an increase in injuries following a motorcycle accident.

What will our San Diego motorcycle attorneys do?

Our San Diego motorcycle attorneys take various steps to make sure that we protect your rights as an accident victim. We will:

  • Investigate your accident thoroughly to determine who the responsible party is and what the cause of the accident is. There are often months of investigation since there could be several different responsible parties.

  • Negotiate with the insurance companies, and fight aggressively against any barriers that they may place.

  • Work with experts to determine the compensation that you will need for future medical care and future income at work.

  • We recommend you speak with our attorneys one-on-one through a complimentary consultation. The best way to get to know an attorney is by asking several questions about their experience and reputation. We always want to make sure that our clients feel comfortable with our steps, and we constantly keep our clients updated with their cases because we know how daunting it could be to file a claim or a lawsuit.

San Diego Defective Motorcycle Attorney

Unfortunately, there are some instances where a defect with the motorcycle could cause an accident. In that case, you will have a product liability lawsuit. A product liability lawsuit holds the product manufacturer accountable for manufacturing a defective motorcycle. Product liability is different from a standard negligence case. Product liability is strict liability which means that the manufacturer is automatically responsible for a defective product. The party filing a lawsuit will then have to show how the product is defective.

Product liability will require an experienced attorney. We recommend that you speak to our motorcycle accident attorneys if you suspect that your accident was caused by a defect with your motorcycle. Examples of defects with your motorcycle could include:

  • defective tires
  • defective fuel tank
  • defective brakes
San Diego Motorcycle Laws

In San Diego, all motorcyclists are required to wear a helmet. Although other protective gear is not required, our firm recommends that you wear leather gloves and a leather jacket to prevent any road rash in the event you are thrown off your bike after a collision. The helmet must also be properly fitted to your head. Not only will this make your riding experience more comfortable, but safer as well in the event of an accident.
