Many motorcycle accident victims are injured twice: first by the person who struck them and secondly by police who are all too willing to accept the car driver’s version of the accident and blame the motorcyclist. It often takes a lawyer’s help to obtain justice.

Determining Fault in Motorcycle Accidents in San Francisco
As motorcycle accident lawyers who have handled numerous motorcycle accident lawsuits in the San Francisco area, we can tell you that in most cases, there is nothing the motorcyclist could have done to avoid the collision. The most common types of accidents are:
- A car making a left-hand turn in front of the motorcycle
- A car backing out of a driveway in front of a motorcycle
- A car turning onto at road in front of a motorcycle
- A car running a red light or stop sign and striking a motorcycle in an intersection
Our San Francisco motorcycle accident lawyers take over where the police report leaves off, collecting and preserving evidence such as skid marks, vehicle damage and witness reports. Often we are able to prove that the driver of the four-wheeled vehicle was at fault. In a recent case, we obtained a $3.8 million settlement in a motorcycle accident case when the police department concluded that our client was 100 percent at fault.
Treating your injuries: Most motorcycle riders have no MedPay coverage for the huge medical bills that can result from a motorcycle accident. We can help you find doctors who will provide your care now in exchange for payment later from your accident settlement or verdict.
