Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Los Angeles

Understanding the common causes of motorcycle accidents can help raise awareness and promote safer riding practices.

  • Distracted driving: Drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, eating, or adjusting their GPS are less likely to notice motorcyclists, increasing the risk of collisions.
  • Left-turn accidents: Drivers making left turns often fail to yield the right-of-way to oncoming motorcyclists, leading to devastating T-bone collisions.
  • Lane splitting: Lane splitting, while legal in California, requires caution and awareness from both drivers and motorcyclists.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces reaction time and increases the severity of motorcycle accidents.
  • Reckless driving: Reckless driving behaviors, such as tailgating, weaving through traffic, and disregarding traffic signals, contribute to a high risk of collisions.
  • Unsafe lane changes: Drivers who fail to check their blind spots or signal properly before changing lanes can cut off motorcyclists, leading to dangerous accidents.
  • Driving under the influence: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction time, significantly increasing the risk of collision.
  • Road hazards: Potholes, debris, uneven pavement, oil spills, and other road hazards can cause motorcyclists to lose control, leading to crashes and serious injuries.
  • Inexperienced riders: Inexperienced riders may be more susceptible to accidents due to a lack of familiarity with motorcycle handling, traffic laws, and road conditions.
  • Motorcycle defects: In some cases, motorcycle accidents are caused by defective parts or faulty manufacturing, leading to mechanical failures and loss of control.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists don’t have much protection — even if they wear a helmet, they are particularly susceptible to severe injuries in an accident, including:

  • Head and brain injuries: Head injuries are common in motorcycle accidents and can range from concussions to traumatic brain injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries: These injuries can result in paralysis and require extensive medical treatment and long-term care.
  • Road rash: Abrasions and friction burns caused by sliding on pavement can be painful and lead to permanent scarring.
  • Fractures and broken bones: The impact of a motorcycle accident can easily cause broken bones, often requiring surgery and rehabilitation.
  • Internal injuries: Internal organ damage and internal bleeding can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention.
  • Amputations: In severe cases, motorcycle accidents can lead to limb amputations.

How Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Help

The experienced legal team at Cohen & Marzban is dedicated to providing comprehensive support and aggressive representation for injured motorcyclists.

Here’s how we can help you navigate the complexities of a motorcycle accident claim:


We will conduct a thorough investigation into the accident, leaving no stone unturned. This includes visiting the accident scene, reviewing police reports and witness statements, examining medical records, and consulting with accident reconstruction experts to determine the cause of the accident and identify all liable parties.

Gathering Evidence

Building a strong case requires compelling evidence. We will meticulously gather all relevant evidence, including photos and videos of the accident scene, damage to your motorcycle, your injuries, and any contributing factors such as road conditions or traffic signals. We will also obtain witness testimonies and expert opinions to support your claim.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Dealing with insurance companies can be frustrating and overwhelming. Our skilled negotiators will handle all communication and negotiations with insurance adjusters, protecting your rights and fighting for a fair settlement that covers the full extent of your damages.


If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we are prepared to take your case to court. Our experienced lawyers will aggressively advocate for your rights before a judge and jury, presenting a compelling case to secure the compensation you deserve.

Maximizing Compensation

We will explore all avenues of compensation available to you, including medical expenses (past and future), lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, emotional distress, motorcycle repair or replacement, and punitive damages in cases of gross negligence.


What if I wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident?

California law requires all motorcyclists to wear helmets. However, even if you weren’t wearing a helmet, you may still be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

How much does it cost to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer?

We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay no upfront fees and only pay if we win your case.

What if I was partially at fault for the accident?

California follows a comparative negligence rule, meaning you can still recover compensation even if you were partially at fault. However, your compensation would be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault.

How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident claim?

The California statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. However, there may be exceptions to this deadline, so it’s important to speak with a motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible.
