Motorcycle Accident Lawyer San Francisco

Motorcycles provide you with the ability to get out there and really connect with the road ahead and to enjoy all the beauty that San Francisco – and surrounding areas – have to offer. Motorcycle accidents, however, are incredibly dangerous accidents that leave you vulnerable to serious injuries, which can alter the course of your future in the blink of an eye. If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured, consult with a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer in San Francisco today. 

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shares that while motorcycle accident fatalities decreased by five percent in 2018, motorcyclists are still overrepresented in traffic fatality statistics. In NHTSA’s Traffic Safety Facts (2019), the following sobering statistics are shared:

  • In 2017, there were 5,172 motorcyclists killed in traffic accidents. 
  • In 2017, motorcyclists accounted for 14 percent of all fatal traffic accidents. 
  • The overwhelming majority of motorcycle fatalities are the motorcyclists themselves (not their passengers).

When you’re on your bike, your vulnerability to serious accidents and injuries is significantly increased. Always make riding safely your number one priority.

Motorist Responsibility

Motorcycles are nimbler on the road than other vehicles are, but they are also more difficult for other motorists to see. While this is a fact, it does not excuse other motorists who refuse to take the necessary precautions to share the road safely with you. Drivers who proceed without checking their blind spots and carefully ensuring that it is safe to change lanes put everyone on the road at increased risk – especially motorcyclists. 

Your Damages

When you’re enjoying the open road on your motorcycle, absolutely nothing – other than your safety gear – comes between you and the tremendous impact of a traffic accident. The associated damages tend to be similarly immense, including:

  • Medical Costs – The medical costs associated with serious motorcycle accidents tend to mount very quickly. Further, the serious nature of the injuries incurred can lead to long-lasting health consequences that require ongoing health care.
  • Lost Wages – After being injured in a motorcycle accident, you likely face lost hours on the job and a subsequent decrease in wages. If your injuries are especially serious, your earning potential could be permanently diminished (if you are able to return to work at all).
  • Pain and Suffering – The violent impact of a motorcycle accident is terrifying and can lead to serious emotional pain and suffering (in addition to the immense physical pain and suffering). This component of your damages is serious and should not be overlooked.
