Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident Attorney
It is a common misconception that motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle–not just the motorcycle. This is not always the case. Frequently, a motorcycle accident is the result of the motorcycle driver attempting to get out of the way of another vehicle. This could be due to the other vehicle being driven by a reckless driver, drunk driver, or a distracted driver. In an effort to avoid being hit, a motorcyclist may ultimately be involved in a Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident. The resulting crash does not automatically mean that the motorcycle operator was at fault.
Even when a motorcyclist has a single motorcycle collision, it is rare for the motorcyclist to escape without injury. If you have been hurt in a single motorcycle accident, or if someone you care about has been injured or killed in a single motorcycle accident, you should speak with an experienced Orange County Motorcycle Accident Attorney.

Mr. Kassel and his highly-skilled staff will fight to get you any and all benefits, damages, and sources of monetary compensation you are entitled to.
Causes of Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle comes with risks that are not usually associated with other means of transportation. All too often, drivers of other types of motor vehicles don’t properly share the road or highway with a motorcycle. It is up to the motorcycle rider to ride defensibly, to avoid being hit by drivers who may not be giving their full attention to the road.
In an effort to thwart an accident, a motorcycle rider may ultimately collide with other objects on the street or roadway such as: buildings, trees, parked cars, guardrails and medians. In addition, single-vehicle motorcycle crashes can be caused by dangerous roadways, loose gravel, poor weather conditions and construction zone debris.
Establishing Liability in a Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident
Identifying any and all at-fault parties in a Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident is a very complex task. The driver you swerved to avoid hitting may continue driving down the road after your accident. A key aspect of identifying liable parties is speaking with witnesses and bystanders.
When a Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident is caused by construction zone rubbish, unsafe roads, or perhaps by a dangerous or uneven stretch of road, there will most likely be multiple liable parties. The responsibility for building and maintaining our roads and highways in California is complex and shared by many public and private entities (State of California’s Department of Transportation, Cal-Trans, or their contractors and subcontractors, and/or local government street departments, and their contractors and subcontractors). Retaining an experienced California Motorcycle Accident Attorney will ensure that all responsible parties are identified and made accountable for your injuries, pain, and suffering.
