For nearly two decades the California motorcycle accidents attorneys at the Golden Gate Law Group have been protecting the legal rights of individuals who have suffered serious brain injury or whose loved ones have been killed in a negligent accident while operating a motorcycle. We advise clients throughout California on their rights, damage recovery options and the unique nature of California insurance laws as they relate to motorcycles.
Naturally, an accident between a motorcycle and and car or truck will almost always result in greater damage and injuries for the person operating the motorcycle. Catastrophic injuries such as a serious head injury or an accident resulting in multiple fractures can have devastating consequences, including astronomical medical bills, lost wages, and loss of the ability to enjoy life as before.
With no air bags, side doors or other barriers between the motorcycle and the road, motorcycle riders face far more exposure during a negligent accident:
In the majority of cases, the other vehicle violated the motorcyclist’s right-of-way and caused the accident.
Motorcycle riders are approximately 25 times more likely to be killed in a road accident.
Motorcyclists are five times more likely to be injured than a person riding in a passenger vehicle is.
