San Francisco Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

According to data from California Highway Patrol, there were 11,644 motorcyclist injuries and 467 motorcyclist fatalities in 2013. That number has grown since 2010, in which there were 9,625 motorcyclist injuries and 347 motorcyclist fatalities. Due to the high accident rates for motorcyclists, many say that it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when” they will get in an accident. Motorcycles are much smaller vehicles than the average passenger vehicle, and can easily hide in blind spots. Motorcyclists are also much more exposed, and not protected by the cab of a vehicle in the event of a crash.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Collisions

Motorcyclists are less visible than other drivers and thus more likely to be involved in an accident. It has been estimated that out of the all the motorcycle accident injuries, 80% resulted in extensive injuries or death.

Some of the most common types of motorcycle accident injuries include:

A motorcyclist involved in an accident is likely to have costly medical bills and longer recovery times, which can leave the victim drowning in debt after they have healed. When the accident and any injuries are the result of another driver's negligence or reckless behavior, you deserve to be adequately compensated for your suffering and other accident expenses. If a death occurs as a result of the accident, a wrongful death lawsuit may be the way to seek justice.

Liability & Compensation in Car-Motorcycle Accidents

It is unfortunate, but in motorcycle-car accidents, the motorcyclist could be assumed to be the party responsible for the accident. In fact, this is far from accurate. Despite all the extra precautions and safety measures motorcyclists take, other drivers aren't always as aware or cautious around motorcyclists as they should be. As a result, negligence or driver distractions are usually the underlying cause of a motorcycle-car accident.
