Riding a motorcycle is a way of life for many people in Southern California, where a large number of motorcycles are registered. Blessed with stunning views, an inviting climate, challenging routes, and some of the top 100 motorcycle roads in the U.S., Southern California is a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts.
While Southern California roads and freeways are ideal environments for motorcycle rides, motorcyclists understand that riding their bike has its risks and exposes them to serious accidents. When a car, truck or other motor vehicle hits or crashes into a motorcycle, catastrophic injuries such as fractures, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury can happen.
Role of Motorcycle Accident Attorney
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, your immediate concern is to resume your normal life as soon as you can. This means getting the appropriate medical care and treatment for your injuries, having your motorcycle restored or replaced, paying your medical bills, and recovering wages or salaries that were lost due to the accident. If another party caused your accident, you’ll have to deal with the other party’s insurance company in order to recover compensation for all your injuries and damages.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Insurance companies, however, can make it difficult for you to receive compensation by requiring you to provide proof of your injuries and damages and convince them that the accident was not your fault. Assuming that you are able to establish your claim, the insurance company will most likely offer to settle at a minimal amount that is not sufficient to cover your injuries and damages. While you can negotiate directly with the insurance company, you can obtain better results with the help of experienced professionals from Binder & Associates who will work with no out-of-pocket expenses from you.
Proving Your Case
In motorcycle accidents, it’s common for the other drivers to counter a claim for compensation by maintaining that “did not see” the motorcyclist or that the motorcyclist was negligent or reckless, in an attempt to defeat the injured rider’s lawsuit. A legal advocate’s proven experience and hard work can overcome these legal challenges. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, it is vital that you work with an attorney who knows how to make a strong case for all of your damages.
The law firm of Binder & Associates has served people across Southern California for nearly four decades with proven results. Our dedicated attorneys are prepared to take your case to trial and aggressively fight for your right to receive the true value of compensation that you legally deserve.

Brain Injury Attorney Helping Victims of Motorcycle Crashes
California has a helmet law that requires motorcyclists to wear prescribed helmets to reduce incidents of head injury in accidents. Unfortunately, protective head gear and clothing cannot totally prevent severe head injuries, particularly in higher speed accidents and crashes with much larger vehicles.
At Binder & Associates, our personal injury attorneys have helped persons with traumatic brain injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Moreover, motorcyclists can suffer other types of serious injuries such as broken bones, road rash, and spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries can have lasting consequences, preventing people from working and supporting themselves, and carrying on their usual daily activities. Our attorneys know how to gather evidence of the other driver’s negligence and your injuries to make a strong case for your damages.
