California Motorcycle & Bicycle Laws
Every accident has unique circumstances that affect the parties involved. To obtain compensation after a bicycle or motorcycle accident, you must be able to demonstrate how the accident was the fault of another.

There are several legal issues that can cause police and jurors to blame a motorcyclist when, in fact, an accident was the fault of another driver. Lane splitting is the legal practice of a motorcycle sharing a lane with another vehicle. California law explicitly allows this conduct because, in many circumstances, it is safer for motorcycles to drive together.
Helmet and licensing laws may also be used against a biker after an accident. While driving without a motorcycle license is illegal, it does not mean that a rider who is injured by the negligence of another is not entitled to compensation. If a rider was not wearing an approved helmet, there may be questions raised over who is ultimately responsible for the injuries he or she suffered. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we know how to confront each of these issues and present your case in the proper light.Contact Our Respected Attorneys Today
