FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a motorcycle accident attorney if I have insurance?

Insurance companies may limit your claim and pay out as little as possible because this is what is in the best interest of the insurance company. An experienced California motorcycle lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve, and help you recover all damages. At Singleton Schreiber McKenzie & Scott our goal is to defend your best interests, and work to fight for proper compensation during your recovery.

Does California have comparative fault?

California’s comparative fault law is also known as comparative negligence. This means that if a person is injured in an accident and is partially to blame, they can still recover damages even if they are 99% at fault. Comparative fault applies to most personal injury cases, and motorcycle accidents is a common claim involving comparative fault. In other states the fault is capped around 50%.

What makes a motorcycle accident claim acceptable?

When you are in a motorcycle accident you must be able to prove that another party was at fault. This will ensure you will receive compensation for any injuries or damages incurred due to the accident. In many cases fault is easily determined, or the other party admits fault immediately after the incident. In other cases, there may be a dispute around who is at fault. It is always important to speak to a qualified motorcycle attorney to understand your rights.

What documents are required when you file a motorcycle accident claim?

Paperwork or any evidence you are able to provide can be helpful to your motorcycle accident claim. Examples of paperwork include police reports, witness statements, and photos of the scene or area surrounding the incident. Creating a time-logged journal is helpful to document each detail of your motorcycle accident. Medical records, bills, doctor’s recommendations or notes, as well as insurance information are other items that our team will need.

What are common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents are typically caused by reckless driving, excessive speeding, or alcohol use. Motorcycle drivers are often not seen by other negligent drivers on the road, and this is usually due to the driver being distracted or from aggressive driving. This type of driving can increase your risk for an accident.

Riding at high speeds for the thrill is extremely dangerous. Hitting debris or taking turns too fast can cause you to crash and wipe out easily. Motorcycles are smaller than cars and this can cause limited visibility, making it hard for other drivers to see you. Motorcycles are also vulnerable to hazardous driving conditions or slippery pavement.

Is lane splitting legal in California while riding a motorcycle?

Lane splitting in California involves riding along the dotted line between two lanes on a highway moving in the same direction. It is legal for motorcycles to split lanes, and other drivers must not block a motorcyclist that is lane splitting. Lane splitting can increase your risk for an accident, and if you choose to lane split make sure you do this safely. Lane splitting can increase the chance of being side swiped, or cause a collision.

What is the difference between a motorcycle accident and a car accident?

Motorcycle accidents are more fatal compared to car crashes. Motorcycle riders are not protected by the car around them, and can be thrown from the motorcycle during the crash. Injuries typically associated with a motorcycle crash involve concussions, brain damage, road rash, nerve damage, bone breaks, and facial disfigurement.

According to the NHTSA 13 out of every 100,000 car drivers are involved in a fatal collision, and 72 out of every 100,000 motorcyclists die in a motorcycle crash. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic accident compared to a car driver.
