For more than two decades, motorcycle accidents resulting in death have increased. This generally observable trend is especially true in Southern California. Now, it is thought that slightly less than 1 in 6 traffic fatalities nationwide involve a motorcycle, which is part of a national trend where motorcycle fatalities are 28 times higher than ones involving motor vehicles.

The first step toward moving beyond this pain and suffering is receiving justice and a needed financial recovery that will provide care and peace of mind that is instrumental in healing and moving forward.

California Negligence Laws
California law says that a basic duty of care is owed to everyone, which means California residents have a basic duty to protect others from harm. When this duty or heightened duties of care are breached by a responsible party, they are deemed to be "negligent", according to California law.
When a negligent party breaches a duty of care that is owed to you and caused your injuries that resulted in damages, the negligent party can be held liable for the actions and required to compensate you for the injuries. The Ledger Law Firm’s team of nationally recognized personal injury attorneys understand the nuances of negligence law, and we will pursue all responsible parties in order to maximize the compensation you deserve to recover.
