Experienced Lawyers Handling Cases Involving Motorcycle Accidents in South San Francisco

Our law firm protects the rights of injured motorcycle riders

A motorcycle is not just a form of transportation, but also a way of life. Unfortunately, riders face numerous obstacles to their safety. Reckless motorists do not look out for riders and the department of transportation does not consider motorcyclists when designing and repairing roads. The Law Offices of K.J. Petsas, PC has assisted injured South San Francisco bikers for 40 years. We help you to recover damages caused by the negligence of a motorist, municipality or company.

Our firm handles all types of motorcycle accidents

The dynamics of an accident involving a motorcycle are different than those in car or truck crashes. Our firm has experience in handling the specific details of each unique type of motorcycle crash, including those involving:

  • Lane drift — Motorists often drift into the adjoining lane without checking their blind spots for motorcycles. Although motorcycles are more difficult to spot, there is never a good excuse for failing to see a rider before changing lanes.
  • Improper left turn — A motorist may misjudge how long a motorcycle takes to brake and cut off the biker while making an improper left turn in an intersection. The biker is not necessarily at fault for t-boning the vehicle.
  • Poor road repair — A pothole may harm a car’s alignment. However, hitting a pothole can send a motorcycle spinning dangerously out of control.
  • Tailgating — Tailgating is dangerous under any circumstance. Driving a vehicle too closely behind a motorcycle risks causing serious injuries to the cyclist in a rear-end crash.

Our attorney conducts a full investigation into what happened and who is responsible. We prove liability and pursue your maximum possible damages.

Our firm helps you recover damages for all types of injuries

Unlike cars, motorcycles have no protection. If you drop your bike or are ejected, you will likely sustain severe injuries, possibly including multiple broken bones, brain injury, spinal cord injuries, amputation, crush injuries and road rash. We make sure your choice of transportation is never counted against you, a common defense tactic for evading liability.

We recover the maximum possible compensation for your injuries

You may incur substantial medical bills at a time when you cannot work because of your motorcycle crash injuries, even if your accident was relatively minor. And after a catastrophic collision, you may never again be able to work up to the capacity you could before the crash. Our firm calculates the damages you are entitled to and does everything we can to make you whole. We may pursue compensation for past and future medical bills, lost income, diminished future earning capacity, pain, suffering and disability from your insurance company or an at-fault driver.
