Providing Car Accident Attorney Services in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Granite Bay, Folsom and throughout California

A motorcycle accident is often more devastating than a car crash, but proving that the other driver was at fault is often more difficult due to complex laws and jury bias. We are motorcycle accident attorneys who know how to prove the fault of the other party and obtain the maximum settlement possible for you.  If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the motorcycle accident attorneys at Amerio Law Firm immediately at (916) 419-1111 so we can begin the settlement proceedings.

Since California state laws often lead to more dangerous riding conditions and create difficult "partial fault" situations, if you don’t hire an experienced motorcycle accident attorney, you can potentially leave thousands of dollars on the table.

Most motorcycle Accidents ARE NOT the Rider’s Fault

Although motorcyclists are often stereotyped as reckless and fast drivers, it’s negligent automobile drivers who cause most motorcycle accidents. There often exists little regard or respect for motorcycles, and automobile drivers place motorcyclists at greater risk for serious injuries in a motorcycle accident.

As a motorcyclist, it's important to ride responsibly, ride with protective gear, make yourself visible, and provide yourself with escape avenues in the event a vehicle encroaches into your space.  It's also important to ride safely for the environment and current conditions.  Hazards also exist that may pose no danger to an automobile, such as a pothole or slick puddle.  These types of hazards can potentially result in a crash on a motorcycle.

There exists heavy jury bias against riders. However, despite what television, news, and insurance companies claim, the majority of motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the rider. This means your case will most have a favorable ending if you hire the right motorcycle accident attorney to fight for you.

Insurance companies will often try to trick the rider into admitting at least partial fault. However, most of the time, you are either not at fault, or at less fault than the driver. Don’t speak to anyone until you’ve hired a professional motorcycle accident attorney to represent you.  Motorcycle riders have rights that need to be protected.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents Can Include the Following

  • Distracted drivers/Failure to notice motorcycles: Motorists often do not notice motorcycles in adjacent lanes or in oncoming traffic. They may move into lanes already occupied by motorcyclists or even turn left in front of them.
  • Following too closely: Cars require longer stopping distances than motorcycles, but motorists may not maintain sufficient following distance to stop in time when a motorcycle stops suddenly in front of them.
  • Assumption of right-of-way: Some motorists simply fail to understand that motorcyclists have the same rights as other drivers, believing their cars have automatic right-of-way over smaller vehicles.
  • Lane Splitting:  Although legal, many automobile drivers do not know how to react when a motorcycle approaches alongside.  This often causes impulse reactions by the driver, resulting in the motorcycle being side-swiped.
  • Drunk driving: Due to the lack of protection of a motorcycle rider, the resulting injuries from a car versus motorcycle crash can be catastrophic.

Though motorcyclists and automobiles share the same rights and privileges, automobile drivers should show greater care to motorcycles, because motorcyclists are at much greater risk of injury in the event of an accident.

Protecting the Rights of Motorcycle Riders

It is important to remember that motorcycle accident victims have the same rights as any other injury victim.  If you or a loved one have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you must contact a motorcycle accident injury attorney who is experienced in these types of cases. Your lawyer will protect your rights and make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.  Call Amerio Law Firm today at (916) 419-1111 to see how we can help you.
