We typically are able to meet victims of car crashes in the comfort of our office on Elk Grove Boulevard or in Downtown Sacramento. However, when a motorcycle rider is involved in a collision with a car, the victim is often hospitalized for several days to several weeks and doesn’t have the luxury of meeting us in our office. We often have to meet them in the hospital to learn what happened and help them navigate through the difficult time ahead They often don’t know where their motorcycle is and since they are not able to work they are not able to pay their bills or provide for their families and they need help right away. What’s worse is that these crashes are usually preventable.
The majority of crashes between motorcycles and other vehicles are caused by drivers who fail to notice motorcycles while navigating traffic conditions. Motorcycles have a smaller profile than other passenger vehicles, and often automobile drivers simply fail to observe that a motorcycle is sharing the road or highway. In a well-known study prepared for the NHTSA, commonly known as the Hurt Report, researchers found that:
• In two-thirds of the accidents between motorcycles and other vehicles, the driver of the other vehicle caused the accident by violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.
• The predominant cause of motorcycle accidents is the failure of motorists to recognize motorcycles in traffic.
• The most frequent motorcycle accident configuration is when the motorcycle is proceeding straight ahead and an automobile turns left into the path of the oncoming motorcycle.
• This serious problem is compounded exponentially when drivers are texting or otherwise distracted, and as a result, have even less aware of motorcycles in the roadway.
We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when they refuse to follow the law. We help with serious issues that require serious representation. We are the Law Offices of Guenard & Bozarth. We have over 80 years of experience in our plaintiff’s only law firm.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
