Other useful information for your attorney are copies of your medical bills, the police accident report, and the insurance information of the involved parties.
What kind of compensation can I get for a motorcycle accident lawsuit?

- Medical bills
- Hospital bills
- Physical or occupations therapy
- Medication and medical supplies

- Pain and suffering
Contact our firm to see what your case is worth. Every case is different, but that does not stop our motorcycle accidents lawyers serving Paramount from fighting for every single penny that you deserve.
How do I prove it was the other person’s fault?
Just like other personal injury cases, you will have to prove that the other party involved was negligent. Negligence is proved when several things are present:
- A duty of care owed
- The duty of cared was breached
- The breach was a direct cause of your injuries
One of our lawyers will help you prove these elements and fight to win you as much compensation as possible. It’s also important to know that California is a comparative fault state. This means you may be able to still receive compensation even if the accident was partially your fault. However, your compensation will be lowered based on how much of the accident was deemed your fault. Once again working with an attorney is you best bet to still receiving maximum compensation.
If there were other causes for your motorcycle accident such as road conditions, then the property owner may be liable for your damages. Some common road conditions that cause motorcycle accidents are:
- Metal plate coverings
- Water leaks
- Cracked cement
- Uneven sidewalks
- Loose gravel
- Lifted asphalt
- Damages road signs
- Broken light posts
Or, your accident may have been caused by equipment malfunction. If that’s the case, the manufacturer may be liable. If this is the case, then California takes a strict liability stance, which means you will not have to prove the company was negligent if the accident was due to manufacturing defects, design defects, or a failure-to-warn users of the defects. So do not worry, even if your accident did not involve another party, you still might be able to sue and receive some recovery for your injuries.
