Receiving Expert Advice From A Motorcycle Attorney

Motorcycle accident lawyers in California have a difficult job.  Not only do they have to fight diligently to protect their clients’ rights and to recover the maximum amount possible in damages for each case, but they also have to fight public opinion and a subtle prejudice that often exists against motorcycle riders in the minds of the average juror or judge.  While unfair, this prejudice is very real and can affect the outcome of a case unless a motorcycle accident lawyer works hard to prevent it from happening.

While it is unclear exactly why so many people assume that a motorcycle rider is always at fault in an accident, it is nevertheless a reality that it happens.  It could be because passenger car operators sometimes see motorcycle riders taking undue chances on the highway; more likely, it is because most passenger car drivers do not understand how motorcycle riders can safely and legally perform maneuvers that are denied to other drivers, such as "splitting the lane."  Because car drivers do not always understand how these maneuvers work, they often assume that a motorcycle rider is behaving in an unsafe manner when in fact that is not the case.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has documented the statistics on motorcycle accidents and shown conclusively that the majority of accidents are not the fault of the biker but rather of a passenger car driver or other factors such as road debris.  In spite of these findings, however, the attitude persists that motorcycles are unsafe and riders must be taking undue chances in traffic.

California motorcycle accident lawyers try to allay these prejudices and fears not only by vigorously representing their clients but also by offering information to the public to help educate them on motorcycle use and safety.  In turn, professional attorneys also try to educate their motorcycle-riding clients on safety when riding and how to prevent accidents whenever possible.  By taking these public safety measures, California motorcycle accident attorneys hope to prevent many tragic and senseless crashes and save future victims a great deal of pain and suffering.

If you are a motorcycle rider, be sure to follow good safety tips such as always wearing a helmet and driving defensively.  If you have not taken a motorcycle safety course, sign up today.  If you are operating a motorcycle without a valid license, do not ride again until you have taken and passed the motorcycle license exam.  You will be grateful for these safety tips if they help you avoid a terrible and painful accident.
