Motorcycle accidents in the Bay Area
Because motorcycles are hard to see, motorcycle accidents in the Bay Area often occur when other drivers are distracted or fail to look out for smaller vehicles. According to the California Highway Patrol, motorcycle fatalities in California increased 175 percent over a ten-year period, from 204 in 1998 to 560 in 2008. Although the number of motorcycle fatalities dropped to 373 in 2010, recent data indicates a possible increase in fatal accidents yet again.
At the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel, we believe that drivers have a duty to safely share the road with smaller vehicles such as motorcycles, and when they fail to do so, they should be held financially accountable for the harm they cause. Our attorneys use more than 50 years of combined legal expertise and skill to protect the rights of victims injured in motorcycle accidents caused by dangerous or defective road design and all types of driver negligence, from sudden lane changes to failure to signal to distracted driving to drunk driving.
