Information from experienced motorcycle accident lawyers in San Diego

Most motorcycle riders understand that any collision or accident can be fatal. Motorcycle drivers have the responsibility to operate safely, but safety is not always possible on a road filled with big rigs and other motorists. Serious injury is often the result.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, motorcycle fatalities increased 15 percent from 2010 to 2011. In 2011 alone, more than 400 riders died of wounds that involved head injury and traumatic brain injury

Our motorcycle accident attorneys in San Diego represent individuals who suffer serious injury — and families, if wrongful death results from catastrophic injury. Any motorcycle accident can cause serious injury, and some of the causes include the following:

  • Visibility: Even when motorcyclists follow the rules of the road, signal their intention and ride with headlights on, the low profile of their vehicles can cause reduced visibility. Careless or distracted motorists too often merge into a lane already occupied by a motorcyclist. Wearing bright colors and striving to remain visible are important — but not enough to alert motorists who are simply not looking.
  • Judgment: Drivers can misjudge the ability and speed of motorcycles. Fatal accidents frequently occur at intersections, when a motorist turns left in front of a motorcycle, mistakenly believing that he or she has time to make the turn. Unable to stop, the motorcyclist either goes off the road or hits the car — with devastating consequences.
  • Distraction: Distracted driving is a leading cause of the inability of motorists to see motorcyclists and maintain a safe distance.
  • Environment: Wet or uneven pavement, fog, poorly signed or maintained construction zones and poor lighting contribute to serious motorcycle accidents.

Riding a motorcycle requires watching out for those who are not watching out for you. If injured, you can look to us for resourceful, untiring efforts to obtain fair compensation on your behalf.
