California is a large state that often requires the use of an automobile to maneuver from place to place. As a result, there is a huge amount of cars on the road, which translates to a significant number of car accidents. These car accidents often lead to serious injuries that entitle victims to recover damages for their pain and suffering. Unfortunately, those who do not retain a licensed attorney often end up recovering less than they deserve. This is why we always recommend hiring an aggressive attorney.

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents happen frequently in urban areas such as Los angeles where the population is high and there are many drivers on the road. Those who decide to use a motorcycle are at greater risk of an accident. Unfortunately, the risk of a motorcycle collision is even higher today due to traffic congestion and the popularity of cell phones, iPads, and other electronics where drivers are distracted behind the steering wheel. Although motorcyclists use safety equipment such as protective jackets and helmets, which can reduce the extent of injuries, they remain prone to serious bodily harm due to the size of a motorcycle in comparison to the size of a car or a truck.
Common motorcyclist accidents arise when unwary drivers pull out of an alley, side street, or parking lot without noticing the victim, or merely swerve and make an unsafe lane change without paying attention to their surroundings. Although these accidents occur frequently, there are laws in place that safeguard the rights of motorcyclists, and the attorneys at Katz Law are ready to help victims achieve justice in recovering damages for their injuries. For example, California Vehicle Code 21804 mandates that all drivers entering a roadway yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. Similarly, California Vehicle Code 22107 forbids drivers from maneuvering between lanes until it is reasonably safe to do so with an appropriate signal on.
So, if you are the victim of a motorcyclist accident, and you want expeditious resolution of your case, contact us immediately or call us at (844) KATZ-LAW!
