A previous post on this Californian blog talked about what groups of motorcycle riders can do to protect themselves from serious motorcycle accidents. These tips are certainly helpful, as motorcycle riders should do what they can to protect themselves from harm. However, other drivers on California's highways and other roads cannot use the fact that motorcyclists are traveling in a group as an excuse for negligent or careless driving.
Packs of motorcyclists have the same rights, and deserve the same respect, on the road as do any other car, truck or semi. Drivers who are around a group of motorcyclists must follow all traffic laws and be careful.
Unfortunately, even the authorities can sometimes assume after an accident that a motorcyclist must somehow have been at fault, especially when there were a group of riders involved in the accident. At our law office, we understand that we may have to work extremely hard to investigate and pursue a legal case on behalf of our injured clients, who were injured while on their motorcycles. Still, in any case, we will advocate for the rights of motorcyclists who were injured while traveling in the Los Angeles, California, area.
Our office has successfully represented victims of motorcycle accidents and their families, securing compensation for these victims and their families, even when there was some initial indication that the motorcyclist bore some of the responsibility for the accident. We work hard to identify those responsible for the accident and get compensation for what are often, debilitating injuries that our clients will have to live with for the rest of their lives.
