Motorcycle Accidents

San Diego Motorcycle Injury Attorneys

Picture of MotorcycleMotorcycle accidents result in thousands of serious injuries and deaths every year in the United States. Statistically, over 80% of motorcycle accidents are shown not to be the fault of the rider. Unfortunately, there are two types of motorcyclists – those that have already had an accident and those that will.

From a legal standpoint, motorcycle accident cases can be difficult. This is in part, due to a general prejudice against motorcycle riders. This prejudice is well known by the insurance carriers with whom you would otherwise be negotiating. Motorcycle accidents can also present complex fact patterns that often require accident reconstruction work-up or other experienced motorcycle expert witnesses analysis.

Many individuals involved in motorcycle accidents do not know their rights. Some have questions regarding what types of property damage will be repaired or replaced or whether their helmets, gloves, their after-market accessories or custom touches will be covered. More significant, however, are the serious bodily injuries that are likely to come from a motorcycle accident.
