Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident CollisionThere are preconceived misconceptions regarding motorcycle riders as “daredevils.”  Many times jurors assume that the injured motorcyclist must have done something wrong to have gotten hit.  We have been representing motorcycle victims and their families for over twenty years.

Attorney Gary A. Kessler has successfully represented hundreds of people injured in motorcycle accidents and traffic collisions for twenty-five years. This experience has given us the legal expertise and financial resources to handle our client’s cases to archive the best maximum results in each of our client’s classes.

We advocate the rights of motorcyclists, drivers of scooters and vespas.  As the Plaintiff (victim) of a motorcycle accident case, typically it is the Plaintiff’s responsibility to prove the following:

  • That the driver did not use due care when operating their car, truck or bus;
  • The negligence of the driver was the cause of the (motorcyclists) accident; and
  • Damages were suffered by the motorcyclist and/or their heirs.

Many times car drivers simply do not see motorcyclists on the highway and they cross into the motorcyclist’s lane, seriously injuring or killing the biker.  Often times, the car’s driver(s) fail to yield the right of way to the motorcyclist.  There are many cases where the automobile driver is speeding or under the influence (DUI).

If you have been involved in a California motorcycle accident you may be entitled to compensation by the negligent party’s insurance company and/or your own if the negligent driver was uninsured or under-insured. Never proceed with a negligence claim without first obtaining legal advice from an experienced California lawyer who knows how to deal with the insurance companies and will make sure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.

California motorcycle accident lawyer Gary A. Kessler will promptly investigate the crash, determine fault, and seek to recover all legal damages.
Regardless of who was at fault in the accident, victims should immediately seek the counsel of an experienced motorcycle attorney to protect your legal rights. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost or destroyed and witnesses may become hard to find.

  • Keep copies of all medical bills and records;
  • Do not release your medical records to the insurance company yourself;
  • Take pictures of your injuries and damage to your motorcycle;
    • If the injured person (or decedent) was employed keep a record of economic loss (lost wages); and
