Each year in Los Angeles and in Southern California, motorcycle accidents result in fatalities and severe injuries to motorcyclists. The motorcyclist is generally at the mercy of large vehicles and trucks on the road which significantly outweigh the motorcyclists. Even with proper protection such as a helmet and adequate clothing on the rider’s arms and legs, motorcyclists will suffer severe and sometimes life-altering injuries when they are thrown from their motorcycles.
We are well-aware of just how serious motorcycle accidents can be and how frequently they involve traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and broken bones, all of which can be life-altering and greatly reduce your quality of life.

HOLDING THE RESPONSIBLE PERSON ACCOUNTABLE
Oftentimes, these motorcycle accidents are caused because of the erratic driving by motorists on the road. The roads and freeways in Southern California have become more congested, and drivers are impatient. Although the conduct of these drivers is usually unintentional, they should bear responsibility and be held accountable for the injuries they cause to motorcyclists.
Motorcycle accidents also result from unsafe road conditions. Hazardous roadway design can place motorcyclists in jeopardy. Severe injuries befall motorcyclists when they do not recognize a hidden trap in the roadway. These hidden traps occur because of faulty street design, improper stop light phasing, and the lack of proper signage.
Harshbarger Law recognizes the complexities involved when handling motorcycle accident cases. It is important to have an attorney who understands that each case is different and special attention must be paid to the client to ensure that he or she is properly represented and fully compensated.
