Motorcycle Accidents

We can’t tell you the number of times that police reports and witness accounts were unfairly slanted against the motorcyclist. There is a strong bias against the victim in motorcycle accidents, even though the evidence usually points to a negligent auto driver. If you have been seriously injured or lost a husband, wife, brother, sister, son, daughter or any other family member in a motorcycle accident; call our San Mateo motorcycle accident lawyers at (650) 345-8484 to arrange a free case evaluation or contact us online to learn more information.

The law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos in San Mateo, California has a record of success in overcoming this bias to convince the insurance companies or a jury to award full compensation to our clients.

Because of the massive injuries and future impact, you need experience like ours. Contact us immediately for a free case evaluation and prompt investigation by a motorcycle accident attorney in San Mateo.

Investigating Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcycle accidents occur because the driver of the car didn’t see the motorcycle — left turns at intersections, pulling out or backing onto a road, running a red light or stop sign.

We get investigators to the crash scene quickly and we hire experts who understand cycle crashes — human factors experts and accident reconstructionists who can find clues in the skid marks, debris and the car’s “black box” data recorder. We hunt for witnesses not listed on the police report, and we have challenged the stories of those who were only guessing when they blamed the cyclist. For immediate help from San Mateo motorcycle accident attorneys, call (650) 345-8484 or email us for more information.

In a recent case, a police department concluded that GFF’s client was 100% at fault for the accident. The lawyers at GFF hired investigators, interviewed witnesses and retained accident reconstructionist experts. The insurance company paid $3.8 million to settle the case

Documenting Injuries & Dealing With Insurance Companies

We work with other professionals to document the extensive and often catastrophic injuries: broken legs or pelvis, head trauma, back and neck injuries, knee injuries and shoulder injuries, severe “road rash” or brain damage.

Motorcycle accidents have unique insurance issues. Most riders have no MedPay coverage for the huge hospital bills; we can work with doctors to arrange later payment from the settlement. We commonly have to fight the cyclist’s own insurance company for uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.

Do You Know Your Motorcycle Policy?

If you survived this accident with relatively minor injuries, your insurance or the negligent driver’s should cover the damages. Next time may be worse. Our attorneys advise every client on how much insurance to carry in the future, especially high UM/UIM limits. This inexpensive extra protection is critical if you are hospitalized or need surgery.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.

I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
