Los Angeles Intersection Accident Attorney
Motorcycle Accidents in Intersections in Southern California
Even with helmets and other safety gear, motorcycle riders lack the protection that passenger vehicles provide, and are therefore in danger of suffering serious injuries during an accident. The motorcycle rider always loses in an accident between a motorcycle and a motor vehicle.
If you were struck in an intersection while riding your motorcycle, we encourage you to contact a lawyer who has experience with motorcycle intersection accident claims. At Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, our Los Angeles intersection motorcycle accident attorney can discuss your rights, including your right to compensation.

How Do Intersection Accidents Happen?
There are many ways in which intersection accidents can occur. Some common scenarios include:
- The driver of the other vehicle fails to yield the right of way at the intersection
- While trying to beat a red light, the driver of the other vehicle speeds through the intersection
- The driver of the other vehicle makes a left turn across an oncoming motorcyclist’s path
- The driver of the other vehicle does not notice the motorcyclist stopped at the intersection and rear-ends them
- Poor visibility, distracted driving, or alcohol/drug-related impairment leads to a head-on collision
Because motorcycles have a small profile, drivers of other vehicles often have more difficulty seeing them. Even so, motorists have a responsibility to look out for others on the road, including motorcyclists. Failure to do so can constitute negligence and may serve as grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death case. Our Los Angeles intersection motorcycle accident attorney can review the specifics of your situation and help you understand your various legal options.
Common Intersection Accident Injuries
Due to the severe nature of these crashes, intersection accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and/or fatalities.
Some of the most common injuries resulting from intersection motorcycle accidents include:
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Knee and joint injuries, as well as torn ligaments
- Neck and back injuries
- Scars and disfigurement
- Shoulder injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
These accidents can also result in significant internal trauma, including internal bleeding, punctured lungs, soft tissue damage, and more.
Victims of such accidents often face a long, uphill road when it comes to their physical recovery. The enormous cost of treating catastrophic injuries, not to mention the immense emotional distress and trauma victims endure, can dramatically impact their lives and those of their families. At Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we strive to not only hold negligent parties accountable but also to maximize our clients’ settlements so that they can begin the healing process and move forward with their lives.
Whether you were seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in an intersection or lost a loved one due to the careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct of another, we invite you to contact our Los Angeles intersection crash attorney today. We offer free consultations and contingency fee arrangements, meaning you do not pay any legal fees unless we win your case.
