Maryam Parman Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Maryam and her team make me feel at
ease, during one of the most stressful
times of my life.

Proving Fault in a Motorcycle Accident

There are approximately 30 million motorcyclists who drive on freeways and highways in the United States. According to statistics from the National Road Safety Administration (NRSA), a motorcyclist is approximately 16 times more likely to die in an accident than an automobile driver. They are also three times more likely to suffer injuries than car passengers. For those involved in fatal motorcycle crashes, the main cause of death was a head injury.

Whatever the cause of your motorcycle accident, the question of whether the other driver was negligent and who is at fault is important. The scene of the accident and any road debris, slip marks or other evidence should be photographed and detailed immediately. Witnesses should be interviewed, and an expert, like Maryam Parman and her associates, should negotiate with the insurance companies to make sure you do not get a settlement worth less than what you deserve.

Many times, insurers do not even mention the fact that motorcycle accidents are often accompanied by serious injuries that may require surgery and prolonged treatments. With more than 30 years of experience, Parman and her team will do whatever is necessary to investigate in detail the cause of your motorcycle accident.

Successful Case

What is my case worth?


The causes of motorcycle accidents can vary widely. However, some of the most common causes in motorcycle accidents, according to police reports, are the following:

  • Sudden braking: If the road conditions are not good, we all know how important it is to have special care when braking.
  • Slippery road: Of course, it is not usual to find this reason alone when talking about motorcycle accidents.
  • Driving negligently, in a hurry: In this sense, bikers are on average with drivers of cars and cyclists. 9% of motorcycle accidents could be avoided.
  • Inadequate speed to conditions: This cause may have more influence in rainy states than in the sunny San Bernardino.
  • Speeding: Speed itself does not cause accidents, it’s loss of control, poor road conditions, etc.
  • Motorcycle defects: At times, motorcycle and equipment defects can also cause motorcycle accidents through no fault of the driver.


Treating a leg injury from a motorcycle accident

Even minor motorcycle accidents can cause permanent disability or chronic pain. In addition to physical pain and suffering, you could face medical bills, loss of income, and mental anguish. For these reasons you could be entitled to financial compensation.

  • Road rash: Often when the driver falls, he is hit with asphalt and the skin is torn. If there are no bones affected, these types of injuries with proper care usually heal ok.
  • Leg fractures: Legs are key in riding a bike. The lower part of the body is almost totally exposed and unprotected. In the event of an accident, fractures are common.
  • Arm fractures: After the legs, the arms are the most exposed areas of the body. These fractures are typical in motorcycle accidents and painful.

After suffering a motorcycle accident, injured persons may be entitled to:

  • Medical care with specialist doctors
  • Compensation for payments to doctors and hospitals
  • Payment for lost wages
  • Payment of future salaries
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Cost of repairing your motorcycle
  • Special care for life, in cases of permanent disability

Unfortunately, many clients sometimes put their own value to their case simply by comparing their case to that of a friend or relative that they think is similar. There is no one-size-fits-all assessment of the value of a case, and the value rises and falls during the life of the legal case depending on how the facts unfold.
