Fighting For Motorcycle Accident Victims in California

Motorcycles have surged in popularity in recent years. Not only are they fun to ride, they are also environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and easy to park on the crowded streets of Sacramento. With the increase of motorcycles on the road, there has also been a sharp rise in serious Sacramento County motorcycle accidents.

Whether your accident was caused by a negligent driver's failure to see you in his or her blind spot, a defect in your bike, or a dangerous road, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the insurance company will do whatever it takes to deny your claim. This is where the Piering Law Firm can help. We will stand up to the insurance company on your behalf so you receive the just compensation you deserve.

Common Types of Motorcycle injuries

When a car or truck collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist always loses. A motorcycle provides little to no protection in a crash. Even when bikers wear protective gear, motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries.

The most common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Bone injury and fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Road rash
  • Brain injuries
  • Wrongful death

Our Sacramento motorcycle accidents attorneys have years of experience handling motorcycle accident cases involving:

  • Driver negligence
  • Defective products
  • Motorcycle recalls
  • Dangerous roads

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Cars in front of motorcyclists turning left: The single most common cause of modern motorcycle accidents is other motorists making left turns in front of bikers. Many drivers have a hard time estimating the speed of motorcycles, so they may mistakenly believe they have time to make a left turn before you come through the intersection. Some motorists also are not looking for motorcycles when turning, and they see an absence of cars and mistakenly assume the intersection is clear.
  • Vehicles changing lanes ahead of bikers: Another common factor in many motorcycle accidents involves car drivers trying to change lanes in front of you. Because of your small size on a bike when compared to passenger vehicles, you sometimes disappear into other drivers’ blind spots, meaning motorists may cut you off unintentionally, but with deadly results.
  • Vehicles striking motorcyclists from behind: When you get into a fender bender driving a car, you may suffer only minor injuries or minimal damage to your vehicle, but when a driver strikes you from behind and you are on a motorcycle, the repercussions can prove far more severe. You may face a higher likelihood of getting struck from behind after dark, or when something unexpected pops up in the roadway, such as an animal or another obstacle.

California Motorcycle Injury Statistics

Motorcycle injuries are devastating. Many are catastrophic, meaning they result in damage that causes long-term or permanent disability that significantly affects your quality of life. Others lead to tragic and untimely deaths.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in the year 2018, 4,985 motorcyclists were killed. A total of 28% of them were drunk. That same year, only 71% of riders wore helmets.

Data collected by the Insurance Information Institute (III) estimated that in 2017 there were over 89,000 non-fatal motorcyclist injuries nationwide.
