In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, you have to deal with not only serious injuries and a wrecked bike, but perhaps also being blamed for your own accident. The bias against motorcycle riders is just one of the reasons to retain an experienced attorney to handle your personal injury claim.
The law firm of Guenard & Bozarth has handled motorcycle accidents in Northern California for more than 25 years. Our lawyers can readily address the unique issues in these cases. We have the resources and litigation skill to hold the negligent parties responsible for your injuries and losses, or for wrongful death damages if your loved one was killed.
Automobile drivers often say that the motorcycle was speeding or weaving or appeared out of nowhere. In reality, that driver was likely careless or distracted, but the narrative of the reckless biker often finds its way into witness accounts and police reports.
Our legal team knows how to conduct the investigation to overcome the presumption that the motorcycle operator was at fault. We visit the crash scene, and often retain experts in accident reconstruction, human factors, roadway design and bike design to determine the cause and contributing factors:
- A car turning into your path
- Failure to yield at a stop sign or red light
- Pulling out from an alley or driveway
- Aggressive driving (tailgating, speeding, lane changes)
- Texting while driving or other distraction
- Obstacles or road defects
- Motorcycle defects
We have obtained notable recoveries for victims of motorcycle accidents. With or without a helmet and leathers, the injuries tend to be severe and lasting — head trauma, back and neck injuries, broken bones, road rash burns and abrasions. We work closely with surgeons, physical therapists, life-care planners and other professionals to ensure that your ongoing medical care is covered and you are adequately compensated for your physical and financial harm.
We invite you to our offices in Sacramento and Elk Grove for a free consultation, or we can come to your home or hospital. Talk to our motorcycle accident attorneys at 916-226-9098 or fill out our online firm, and we will respond shortly.
We will promptly investigate your car, motorcycle or truck crash to pursue maximum damages.
We fight back when legitimate claims are unfairly denied by insurance companies.
Bad faith litigation is becoming more common as the insurance industry continues to engage in dishonest practices that trample the rights of policyholders.
