Motorcycle Accident Attorney
A reputable motorcycle accident attorney understands how severe injuries can be from a motorcycle crash or accident.
Whether it is a street bike or a cruiser, many bikers take serious precautions to avoid a collision of any sort. But even the most skilled and careful bikers cannot fully eliminate the risk a motorcycle presents.
Motorcycle accident cases are unique in nature due to the growing public bias against motorcyclists in San Diego. People seem to have the perception that all motorcycle operators drive too fast and take unnecessary risks. Only a truly skilled motorcycle accident attorney can overcome this bias and ensure the victim is properly represented and the case is handled fairly.
At Batta|Fulkerson, we have a team of skilled San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers with the relevant experience combating this bias and maximizing your settlement opportunity.
Why are Motorcycle Accident Injuries so Frequent in San Diego?
According to California’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) there are about 800,000 registered motorcycles in California. This means the Sunshine State has the largest volume of motorcycles in the United States. Most of the registered owners live in Southern California.
The frequency of motorcycle accidents in San Diego is purely a numbers game. There is simply a large number of motorcyclists on the roads every day – accidents are inevitable.
Why Are Motorcycle Accidents So Severe?
The nature of riding a motorcycle leaves you exposed and extremely vulnerable to serious injury during a crash or accident:
- Since there is no metal around a motorcyclist he/she is susceptible to direct impact with the ground, a car, or an object.
- Motorcycles are lighter than cars, trucks, and buses, so impacts at slower speeds can still cause great damage.
- Motorcycles are harder to see for other drivers, leaving bikers more susceptible to being cut off, tailed or “doored” (having a driver open a door while a motorcycle is passing).
- Motorcycles are impacted by road defects, big potholes or just poorly maintained roads and freeways. While a car may only experience a light impact by these inconveniences, they could cause an accident to a motorcyclist.
