Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable than other types of motorists and suffer much more severe injuries and deaths when an accident occurs. Government compiled statistics show that 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic accidents in this country in 2015 and 4,976 suffered fatalities. Due to the inattentiveness of car and truck drivers, and their failure to properly recognize or yield to motorcyclists' rights on the road, motorcyclists are at greater risk than drivers or passengers of other types of vehicles. When compared to occupants of cars on a per mile driven basis, motorcyclists are five times more likely to be injured in an accident and more than 26 times more likely to suffer death.
Despite their reduced visibility relative to cars because of their size and having only one headlight, motorists' failure to notice motorcycles on the road is no excuse for conduct such as a sudden lane change which may endanger motorcyclists or cause them to crash. Motorcycle and scooter riders have the same legal rights as those enjoyed by car and truck drivers, but unfortunately prejudice and negative attitudes against them exist in the minds of many juries and judges who are predisposed to find motorcyclists at fault. It is therefore important to hire an aggressive and knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney familiar with the unique issues involved in motorcycle accidents, who will work relentlessly to overcome those prejudices and obtain for you the compensation to which you are entitled.
It is especially important to talk to a qualified motorcycle injury lawyer as soon as possible following an accident. Failure to do so can result in the loss of evidence crucial to the case. It is therefore best to contact us immediately after an accident so we can conduct our investigation right away before physical evidence is lost or witnesses' memories fade.
We do not charge any legal fees or expenses unless we collect damages on your behalf.
The other driver's insurance company will typically attempt to make you believe you do not need to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer. The insurance company will promise that they will pay you adequate compensation after they finish their investigation. Do not be fooled. This is almost always an attempt to take advantage of you by taking a recorded statement, having you see their own doctors, delay conducting your own investigation, and otherwise build their case against you. Then, after much delay, they will typically offer you an unfairly low settlement. Do not let this happen to you. In fact, it is best not to have any communications at all with the other party's insurance company, but if you do talk with them be sure to not allow them to take a recorded statement from you. Leave all communications in the hands of an experienced motorcycle accident injury attorney.
I was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident which resulted in a lot of fractures and new metal for my bones. While at Rehab in the hospital I started searching for a motorcycle accident lawyer and came across a few of them. I contacted a few of them and wasn't really impressed until I talked to Dan.
During our initial talk, He was upfront with everything and explained a lot about how he handles his cases and the different methods he uses to resolve them. My first impression of Dan was that he is a very friendly, warm hearted, encouraging, person that is really out to help people and not do it for the money. He was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had at any time of day. ... He resolved my case in a few months instead of letting it drag on for years.
I was hit by a car while riding my motorcycle in San Francisco. ... All told I was in trouble, but at the time I assumed that the other party would cover the costs, as they were apologetic and accepting of fault at the scene.
Unfortunately, that was not the case -- they went back on their word! After a number of missteps, I finally got smart and called a motorcycle lawyer: Dan Rose. He was, simply put, tremendous. He handled everything for me, walking me through all of various steps and helping me gather the relevant documentation with compassion, efficiency, and clarity. ... That willingness to share his knowledge really served to impress me with how trustworthy and caring Dan is.

Our office has found that motorcyclists tend to be inadequately insured, especially with respect to the levels of uninsured motorist coverage they carry. We have therefore lectured and written extensively on the subject. A synopsis of how increasing coverage limits can benefit you, especially if you become injured in an accident that is not your fault, is set forth in our blog entry on this topic.
The following video entitled "How To Choose The Right Helmet", produced by NHTSA, can be a lifesaver, and is brought to you by the motorcycle injury attorneys at our office as a public service and in recognition of the fact that head injury is the leading cause of death in motorcycle crashes.
