If you or a loved one were involved in a serious motorcycle accident, call our Santa Monica motorcycle accident attorneys right away. After a crash, you may rely on receiving an auto insurance settlement. That is how most people recover for the property damage and medical bills they experience. However, you should never accept the first settlement offer you receive.
Most insurers will prioritize their interests above your own and give a low-ball initial offer. By working with our experienced attorneys, you have the chance to recognize a low offer and negotiate for more appropriate recovery. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are proud to have helped more than 5,000 clients win more than $300 million in settlements and court rulings.

Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries
When you are injured in a motorcycle accident because of another person’s carelessness, you have the right to pursue compensation. Most crash claims are resolved through an insurance settlement. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will handle the insurance claim process for you. We will communicate with the insurer, provide them with the necessary evidence and medical records, and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.
However, in some cases, we may recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit. Sometimes this is because it is the only or the best way to pursue compensation. Other times, a lawsuit is a method through which we gain additional information and evidence, which we can use in pursuit of an insurance settlement.
Whether we focus on obtaining a settlement or court award, we will fight hard for you to receive compensation for your:
- Medical Expenses

- Physical Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
