Motorcycle accidents are caused by any number of factors. Many other drivers on the road fail to see motorcycles. Sometimes the motorcyclist is blamed for the accident. Lane splitting in California or poor road conditions also lead to increased crashes. Lane splitting is permitted in California.
Whatever the cause of the motorcycle accident, you need protection. Motorcyclists have less protection than other drivers and the likelihood of serious injuries is higher. Unfortunately, motorcyclists may also face more obstacles in seeking compensation.

With a background representing insurers, Mr. Morrell brings a unique perspective that not all plaintiffs’ lawyers have. He knows how insurers handle claims and can tailor his approach accordingly. He knows his opponents’ moves before they make them.
Building Your Motorcycle Accident Case
Popular belief is that motorcyclists do not obey the law and are dangerous or reckless. We have experience managing these negative impressions and countering the common perception that a biker may have caused his or her own accident. We thoroughly investigate every case and look for liability with other drivers or conditions:
- Following too closely
- Lane-changing errors
- Running a red light
- Distracted driving (texting or talking on the phone)
- Product defects
- Poor maintenance of either vehicle involved

We will fight to recover damages and help you get the compensation you deserve. Attorney Morrell personally handles every case and gives each client personal attention and service.
