San Diego Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorneys

Our San Diego Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Advocate for Your Rights

Helping you with auto insurance claims and personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits

Motorcycles can give riders a sense of freedom, control and excitement, but the same qualities that make riding fun can also make it dangerous. Motorcycles have none of the safety features of other motor vehicles — such as seat belts, airbags and an enclosed capsule. Therefore, a bike crash tends to result in serious injuries.

Established in 1996, Sidiropoulos Law Firm, APC focuses exclusively on personal injury recovery. Our accident lawyers negotiate with the auto insurance companies for the damages you deserve. We also determine whether you may have a valid third-party claim.

Safety equipment

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) recommends you wear the right gear to prevent crashes and to protect you from injury if you are involved in an accident. Equipment that can keep you safe on the road includes:

Helmet

Face shield

Goggles

Gloves

Over-the-ankle boots

Abrasion-resistant pants and jacket

California motorcycle helmet laws

California enacted its motorcycle helmet law in 1992. The statute requires all motorcycle drivers and passengers to wear a helmet. In addition to complying with the law, wearing a helmet can protect you from brain injuries. However, wearing a defective helmet may be worse than using no helmet at all. Your helmet should meet Department of Transportation (DOT) standards and fit your head properly to give you adequate protection. If you suffered a head injury despite wearing a helmet, you may have a cause of action against the manufacturer for a defective product.

Recovery for your loved one’s wrongful death

In 2010, 352 riders died in motorcycle wrecks in California, a decrease of 10.7 percent from 2009. However, any motorcycle fatality is too many.

As you grieve the loss of your family member, our team does all we can to relieve the stress of filing a lawsuit. Our attorneys give your family the emotional and legal support you need during the devastating aftermath of the deadly accident.

Claims against San Diego

The city’s poor maintenance of roadways can cause dangerous conditions for all drivers. If you are riding a motorcycle, you are put in even greater jeopardy of a catastrophic accident because of:

Potholes

Raised manhole covers

Uneven pavement

Slick road surfaces

Dim lighting

Broken traffic signals

Missing street signs
