California Motorcycle & Bicycle Laws

Accident Attorneys Serving the San Francisco Bay Area

Motorcycle 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.

It is important to choose an experienced attorney with the resources and skills to fight for you.

Knowing Your Rights as a Bicyclist or Motorcyclist

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.

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.
