Who Can File a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit?

If another party committed one or more of the following acts of negligence, it is highly likely that you have a case:

  • Speeding
  • Driving aggressively
  • Weaving through traffic
  • Attempting to execute an unsafe pass
  • Failing to signal when turning or changing lanes
  • Failing to check for motorcycle riders
  • Driving while drunk or impaired

It does not matter whether the other party’s negligence was intentional or unintentional. The state of California may consider the negligent party liable for any damages you have incurred as a result of the crash. Common damages in motorcycle accident lawsuits include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Lost wages, current and future
  • Disability accommodations

One thing to keep in mind as you decide whether to pursue a motorcycle accident lawsuit—the state of California has a two-year statute of limitations in which victims or their families must timely file a claim. This means victims must file a claim within two years of the accident to pursue compensation in a lawsuit.

If you suspect that the other party’s negligence led to the motorcycle accident in which you were injured, it is recommended to consult a lawyer. They can investigate the facts of your case to identify negligence, determine liability, calculate your rightful compensation, and, most importantly, make sure that your legal case is centered around your needs.

Common Biker Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to injury than car or truck occupants. Wisner Baum attorneys in San Francisco have helped biker clients who sustained the following injuries in car accidents and truck accidents:

Those who sustain any of these injuries after a motorcycle accident must immediately seek medical attention. Many victims of motorcycle crashes often spend months or longer recovering from their injuries. Others who are less fortunate must face a completely new life with permanent and debilitating injuries.

If you sustained injuries after a wreck, it is best to speak with an attorney as soon as you are able. Let your lawyer help you with your claim so you can focus on your recovery.
