The number of fatal motorcycle accidents occurring on California roadways is unacceptably high. A large number of such accidents occur due to drivers not paying attention to others on the road or failing to provide motorcycle riders the right of way.

At Piering Law Firm, we aggressively pursue all avenues of compensation that loved ones of deceased motorcycle riders have available to them. We understand the laws and the issues that families face when attempting to recover for their loss. Lawyers Robert Allen Piering and John Beals have decades of experience trying these cases in the Sacramento area. We understand the tactics that insurance companies and defense attorneys will take when attempting to avoid liability.

Contact us today to learn how our compassionate and experienced Sacramento wrongful death attorneys can help you and your family. 

Common Motorcycle Injuries that Result in Death

California has one of the nation’s highest concentrations of motorcyclists, thanks to our state’s relatively friendly climate and extensive road system. Yet, this also means that California has the second-highest number of annual motorcycle fatalities, just after Florida. Most motorcycle fatality victims are male and between the ages of 20-29.

Deadly injuries that can be sustained in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Head injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding

Why Experienced Representation Matters

Recovery in motorcycle accident cases is often challenging. It can be even more difficult to recover in such cases when the accident involves a fatal motorcycle crash. In such incidents, insurance companies often attempt to demonstrate that the victim of the crash was at fault.

It can also be difficult to recover for such accidents because the cause of the accident is often difficult to discover. In a fatal accident, the rider is no longer available to provide his or her side of the story. It is, therefore, necessary for attorneys representing victims to take immediate action by interviewing potential witnesses and preserving all available evidence.

As time is of the essence, we work closely with investigators and accident reconstructionists to find out specifically what occurred. We take photos and measurements at the accident site at the earliest possible moment. We prepare every case as if it was going to trial. Such preparations also allow for us to settle your matter favorably by motivating other parties to resolve such matters quickly.

Besides the emotional shock accompanying a fatal accident, the financial and practical support the deceased rider routinely provided will no longer be present. Calculating this loss can be extremely difficult.

We are passionate about helping families and loved ones recover following such accidents. Our law firm understands the long-term costs. We work toward making certain every sort of loss is documented in court. Through our representation, we do what is necessary to make certain children and spouses are cared for. We provide guidance and help you understand all of your options.

At Piering Law Firm, located in Sacramento, we pay close attention to all of your needs and concerns. We make ourselves available for free initial consultations, and we charge no fee without recovery.
