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.

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:
- Pulling out in front of a motorcycle
- 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
Motorcycle accident attorney Rivers Morrell is familiar with different types of serious injuries due to negligence of others. Approximately eight out of 10 motorcycle accidents involve severe injuries or death, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Closed head injuries
- Broken bones
- Spine injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Skin damage
- Permanent disability
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.

What if my motorcycle accident was the result of a hit and run driver?
Hit and run injuries are covered by the Uninsured Motorist (UM) section of your own auto insurance policy. We can help to ensure you receive full and fair compensation.
What does it cost to be represented by your firm?
There is no cost to you out of pocket as we work on a contingency fee basis. We are paid a portion of the full and fair compensation we recover on your behalf. In addition we work to reduce the actual medical bills and other underlying costs to make certain you have the resources needed to recover from what has happened.
The insurance company is trying to say it was my fault. What should I do?
This is why it is important to contact our office for a free consultation. Insurance companies know many juries believe motorcyclists are reckless by nature and will attempt to offer a very low settlement (if any at all). We can prove you weren't responsible and seek full and fair compensation for your injuries and recovery.
Why do I need an experienced trial attorney?
Insurance companies always offer a low settlement. They understand one thing: risk. They face the greatest risk when your injury attorney can and will put your case before a jury if you are not offered just compensation for your injuries. They know an attorney without proven trial experience and verdicts can and will accept less than what you are entitled to by California law.
