Motorcycle Accident Attorney Serving Rowland Heights With 26+ Years Experience
Going through, or witnessing a family member go through the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be absolutely devastating. It’s likely that the injuries sustained were serious due to the nature of a motorcycle vs vehicle scenario. Recently, a 60 year old Rowland Heights man was killed on Santiago Canyon in Orange Canyon when his motorcycle was struck by a car causing him to be flown from the bike and struck by traffic behind him. Even if you didn’t cause the accident, you may still have a hard time getting compensation for your injuries because courts and insurance companies can be hard on motorcyclists. However, an experienced Rowland Heights motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get fair compensation after your accident. Please call The Paris Firm at (909) 469-5127 to discuss your case today.
Although Rowland Heigths is about 20 minutes away from The Paris Firm in Chino Hills, our team has handled numerous cases throughout Los Angeles County. Like all law firms, after our initial consultation at your place or ours, most of our communication can be done via phone and Email – but we’ll never leave your side.
Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident is Our #1 Priority
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another, you need an injury attorney who will step up and speak for you when you can’t. Eric Paris and his legal team will aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of your losses and we’ll seek damages for your pain and suffering, current and future medical expenses, lost wages and lost future earning capacity, and more.
It is important to select an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you for two reasons:
1) Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries including brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, burns, and multiple fractures. Our lawyers understand how to handle cases involving life-altering injuries. We will work to maximize the amount of financial compensation you receive and consider the long-term implications and medical treatments of a serious injury.
2) Judges and juries are often biased against motorcyclists. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will present facts to address this bias. We are prepared to show that today, most motorcyclists are safe, responsible drivers – not risk takers. In fact, the fastest growing demographic groups among motorcycle owners are women, baby boomers and commuters.
Drivers of passenger vehicles often say they didn’t see the motorcycle. Often, the truth is that they were just not looking or were distracted by something in the car. It’s all motorists responsibility to be aware of other vehicles on the road, including motorcyclists. If they fail to do so and the rider gets hurt, our Rowland Heights motorcycle injury attorneys will hold them liable.
For our clients a motorcycle isn’t a toy – it’s their lives
The Paris Firm understands that most motorcyclists love their bikes and the thrill of the open road. We understand the severity of injury that a rider can suffer when they get into a bad wreck because we’ve seen it before. Motorcycle accidents can cause painful and debilitating injuries, from road rash to fractures, and even to injuries requiring amputation of limbs.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Wrecks
There are many potential causes of motorcycle accidents, but almost all of them are the result of a driver error on the part of either the motorcyclist or the other driver (which is a passenger car almost 90% of the time). These include:
- Failure to yield right of way
- Illegal maneuver
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failure to notice motorcyclists
- Distracted driving (often mobile phones and in-dash “infotainment” systems)
Although either driver may be at fault in a motorcycle accident, it’s often more difficult for motorcyclists to demonstrate that they’re not the one’s at fault.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic Brain injury (TBI)
- Spine injury
- Internal organ damage
- Serious abrasions (road rash)
Because of the severity of these injuries, motorcycle accident victims will often receive less compensation than they need to pay for medical bills and make up for lost wages.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims
If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Rowland Heights, you may be able to receive compensation for the serious consequences of that accident, including:
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential

- Pain and suffering
- Past, present, and expected medical bills
In addition, a wrongful death lawsuit brought on behalf of a loved one killed in a motorcycle accident may lead to additional or different compensation. The compensation that is appropriate in your case depends on the circumstances of your accident.
