Motorcycle accidents in West Hollywood
If you are injured in a accident involving a car or truck while riding a motorcycle, your chances of being seriously injured are tripled. When compared to drivers in a car or truck, accidents involving a motorcycle are 14 times more likely to fatal for the rider. The most common place in West Hollywood for motorcycle accidents to occur is on Santa Monica Blvd between North Robertson Blvd and North Le Brea Ave, but a motorcycle accident can happen anywhere that a car or truck driver isn’t paying proper attention.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), at least 50 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle, and 42 percent of fatal motorcycle crashes between two vehicles involved the other vehicle turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or passing the vehicle.
How Much Is Your Settlement Worth?

Motorcycle accidents are often viewed and handled very differently than accidents involving cars or trucks. There is a social stigma that affects the opinions of many people involved in the legal process, including the police officers at the scene of the accident, and the jurors in the court room. This stereotype sometimes paints motorcyclists as wild, reckless, and dangerous people. It’s critical the legal council you hire knows how to counter this inaccurate image.

What I rented the motorcycle?

Even if you were partially to blame in a wreck, California has what is called comparative negligence.
