Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Most motorcycle accidents ARE NOT the fault of the rider. A Sacramento accident lawyer at Amerio Law Firm will hold the other party legally responsible.
A motorcycle accident is often more devastating than a passenger car crash, but proving that the other driver was at fault is more difficult due to complex laws and jury bias. We are motorcycle accident lawyers in Sacramento that know exactly how to prove the fault of the other party and obtain the maximum settlement possible for you. If you’ve been injured in a bike accident, contact us immediately 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 get an experienced legal team, you can potentially leave thousands of dollars on the table.

Most motorcycle accidents ARE NOT the rider’s fault
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 likely come out favorably in trial with the right tactics; despite this, there is still heavy jury bias against riders. On top of that, insurance companies will often try to trick the rider into admitting at least partial fault. 80% 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. You’ve got rights, and they need to be protected.

How California law is biased against bikers
The number of motorcycle fatalities in California has increased steadily in recent years and, despite this, the state still continues to have unfavorable and confusing motorcycle laws. Two laws in particular are:
- Lane-splitting – the practice of driving on the lane divider. Most car drivers don’t know how to react or aren’t used to dealing with this.
- Shared fault – in California, the fault between parties can be shared for an accident, leading to more complicated settlements. This makes cases especially difficult when juries tend to side with the driver of the car.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you’ve got a long road to your settlement and an even longer road to a full recovery. Get Amerio Law Firm to help make sure you get the maximum you are owed. We are Sacramento’s go-to motorcycle accident attorneys.
