Accidents Involving Cars

Northern California Motorcycle or Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Hit By Car Most of the time, cars, bikes and motorcycles manage to go about their business in a safe manner. There is an uneasy relationship between many automobile drivers and riders. Too many cars seem to act with indifference or even hostility towards the bikes and motorcycles they encounter. When car drivers fail to properly account for every vehicle on the road, the results can be tragic.

Were You Hit by a Car While Riding Your Bike or Motorcycle?

At the law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., our skilled attorneys have a national reputation for their work in personal injury law. We understand the many ways in which cars interact with bicycles and motorcycles. When those interactions go wrong and a rider is injured or killed, we work to hold the responsible driver accountable for his or her actions. By seeking full and fair compensation for injured riders, we help make the roads safer for everyone. If you have been injured or if you have lost a loved one in a bike or motorcycle accident with a car, don’t hesitate to contact us at (408) 289-1417. We offer a free initial consultation.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents With Cars

Cars can threaten bicycles in any number of ways. We help bicyclists who were injured in interactions with cars, including:

  • Cars failing to yield
  • Cars turning left in front of bicycles
  • Cars opening doors into the road, hitting bikes
  • Distracted drivers striking bicycles
  • Other forms of driver negligence

Many accidents involving car and bike interactions are caused by inattention. Drivers often repeat that they never saw the bike or that the cyclist came out of nowhere. These accidents are the result of negligent driving, and the injured cyclist deserves to be compensated for his or her injuries.

Motorcycles vs. Cars — Highway Accidents

Motorcyclists are more exposed and therefore more vulnerable to harm than automobile drivers. When a car changes lanes without signaling or attempts to enter a lane already occupied by a motorcycle, the rider is facing a significant risk of serious injury or death. Motorcycle and car interactions can be deadly. If you or a loved one has been injured in a collision or near collision with a car, you may be entitled to compensation.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
