Statistics inform us that motorcyclists, on average, have a 50% higher likelihood of being involved in an accident than automobile drivers. A recent survey stated that motorists are twenty times more likely to die in a motorcycle accident than a car accident. That risk increases in motorcyclists over 45 years of age. Motorcycle accidents are serious, and the aftermath can be difficult, painful, and confusing.
Unlike in car accidents, in which the occupants are surrounded by protective steel cages, motorcyclists and motorcyclist passengers are exposed to catastrophic injury in any accident, even when wearing helmets and other protective gear.
Furthermore, when seeking compensation for damage to their bodies and bikes, most California motorcyclists are injured again: this time by the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
At the Reinecke Law Firm, we understand the bias that many drivers and insurance companies have against bikers. Tom Reinecke, an avid California motorcyclist and lifetime member of the American Motorcyclist Association along with being considered one one of the "Best California Motorcycle Accident Lawyers", has a reputation for obtaining just and fair compensation for seriously injured California motorcyclists and their passengers.
After the accident, you may be asked by a representative of the other driver's insurance company to provide a recorded statement or to diagram the accident. Don't do either of these things without a lawyer's advice. The insurance company is looking for a way to minimize or eliminate their liability. Anything you say can be manipulated and used to damage your case.
Before you say anything to the other driver's insurance company, talk to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. The consultation is free, and you are under no obligation to hire us after the consultation.
