Motorcycle Accidents

There are few joys quite like those of riding a motorcycle. The freedom of the open road is alluring, but it comes with risks. The simple truth is that motorcyclists are not as protected as drivers and passengers in cars and trucks, and the risk of an accident is often greater due to poor road conditions or inattention from other drivers. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident, the potential for serious or life-changing injuries is far greater. That is why it is so important to have an experienced Fresno motorcycle accident attorney to represent you.

California’s Central Valley is home to three national parks and gorgeous natural scenery. It is little wonder that so many Californians love to take advantage of these beautiful roadways on their motorcycles. Injury Law Fresno knows how amazing it is to ride a bike through these roads—and how difficult it can be to recover from accidents that involve motorcycles. Many people have preconceived notions about bikers, making it challenging to convince a jury that the motorcyclist was not at fault and should recover for his or her accident. We will aggressively pursue all potential avenues for recovery and will explore a variety of strategies to prove that the other party was at fault and should be held liable for your injuries.

How to Determine Who Is at Fault

Motorcycle accidents can happen in any number of ways, from user error to changing road conditions to other drivers’ negligence. Whatever the reason for the collision, a motorcycle accident can result in serious, life-changing injuries and a need for continuing medical care.

In many cases, crashes involving motorcycles occur because drivers of cars and trucks simply do not pay sufficient attention or give enough respect to motorcycles as fellow vehicles on the road.  They may switch lanes suddenly, brake unexpectedly, or not look out for motorcycles when making a turn at an intersection. This could lead motorcycle drivers at risk for skidding out or even being struck by a vehicle. Even with a helmet and protective gear, a biker is at far greater risk of serious injury in these incidents. Bikers must be constantly vigilant to prevent these types of accidents, carefully watching the vehicles around them to avoid being involved in an accident.  But even with the utmost care and caution, these crashes can still occur. A skilled Fresno motorcycle accident attorney can then help the biker recover for his or her damages.

In addition to crashes involving other drivers, accidents may also occur due to poor or changing road conditions. Loose gravel, wet roads, or sharp turns can make it difficult for a motorcyclist to safely navigate the terrain, leading to an accident. While some of these crashes may be a result of the biker driving too fast for road conditions or not paying time and attention while driving, others may be a direct result of a city or state failing to properly maintain the roads or to adequately design the roads to ensure safety for all drivers. In these situations, a lawsuit against a governmental entity may be necessary. Because these types of claims have special rules and filing deadlines, it is critically important to speak to a skilled Fresno motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after an accident that was caused by poor road conditions. Injury Law Fresno is knowledgeable about these laws and time limits and will work with you to make sure that you can pursue all potentially responsible parties.
