Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Retain Experienced & Trial-Tested Legal Representation Today

Both hardcore bikers and recreational riders enjoy the vast desert roads and exciting cityscapes of California. Unfortunately, and despite its many virtues, riding a motorcycle is also an incredibly dangerous hobby. According to recent data supplied by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis, over 5,000 motorcyclists were the victims of fatal traffic collisions in 2016.

Motorcycle riders deal with reckless, distracted, and frustrated car and truck drivers on a daily basis. Sadly, because motorcycles lack external safety features, even a minor impact collision can send a rider straight to the emergency room. If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver, contact the Bakersfield motorcycle accident attorneys at Campbell Whitten as soon as possible.

We know that severe accident injuries often necessitate expensive medical treatments, surgical procedures, and rehabilitative services. Our experienced legal team can research the accident and calculate your projected injury-related expenses to develop a litigation strategy that aims to effectively maximize your claim. We aren’t afraid to negotiate with insurance companies or litigate against rival legal teams if it means securing a beneficial settlement or verdict on your behalf.

Contact Campbell Whitten at (661) 334-3000 to learn more about our legal services.

Motorcycle Accidents in California

All motorists in the United States have a legal obligation to obey both state and federal traffic laws. However, many car and truck drivers find it difficult to safely operate their vehicles around a biker. These drivers are used to checking for larger vehicles in their mirrors and blind spots, not bikers, bicyclists, or pedestrians. When an accident occurs, it’s usually due to a driver’s negligence.

Riders often sustain catastrophic physical and cognitive injuries during an accident, for example:

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

Neck or spinal cord damage


Broken bones


Internal organ damage

Scarring and disfigurement

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, it’s critical that you discuss your case with an attorney as soon as you or a trusted loved one can pick up a phone. A successful lawsuit can yield damages that facilitate your physical and financial recovery. However, this process can be incredibly challenging without the aid and experience of a qualified legal representative.

If your case is successful, you may be awarded the following compensatory damages:

Present and future medical expenses

Ongoing professional care fees

Rehabilitative services

Lost income

Loss of earning potential

Non-economic damages
