Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riding a motorcycle is a great way to travel around the greater Sacramento area and experience the open road, but if you are not careful, suffering a motorcycle accident injury can lead to serious injury, if not death. And as a Sacramento-based motorcycle accident lawyer who also is an avid motorcycle enthusiast, I feel personally committed to representing those who have been impacted by motorcycle accidents.
Unlike car accidents, going through a minor fender-bender on a motorcycle can have drastically different outcomes in personal injuries and vehicle damage. And because the likelihood of experiencing a personal injury from a motorcycle accident is greater than getting hurt due to a car accident, it can be especially difficult to get compensation from insurance carriers and feel like you are being supported during such a traumatic time.
That’s why it’s so important to get a good team of Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyers on your side who have the knowledge, experience, and grit that’s required to go “toe to toe” with attorneys in the insurance industry who try to do whatever they can to limit the payout for your claim. not to mention the track record of successfully resolving over 3,000 personal injury cases.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 566 motorcyclist deaths in 2017 (the most recent year with available data) & out of those deaths, there was a striking trend: a 33% increase in mortality rates when the motorcycle crash occurred in an urban setting. Since Sacramento is the sixth-largest city in California with a population count of over 500,000, there are plenty of urban roadways that can be dangerous for motorcyclists. In fact, Sacramento ranks 5th among cities with the worst drivers in America. Some of the most dangerous intersections in Sacramento are:
- 34th Street & Second Avenue
- Florin Road: 24th Street to Munson Way
- El Camino Avenue: Del Paso Boulevard to Steelhead Creek
- Marysville Boulevard: North Avenue to Arcade Boulevard
- Broadway/Stockton Boulevard: Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to 13th Ave.

Motorcycle Safety Tips
Safe motorcycle practices are crucial to enjoying your ride, but so often we see unsafe motorists on the road so we wanted to do everything we could to help keep motorcyclists safe on the roadways and highways around Sacramento. That’s why we put together these motorcycle safety tips.
The sad reality though is that motorcyclists have a higher propensity to suffer tragic outcomes from being in a car accident. In fact, a motorcyclist is about 28 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash than someone in a passenger car.
“Safe motorcycling takes balance, coordination, and good judgment”
Taking a basic Sacramento motorcycle training course or wearing a helmet while riding around downtown could mean the difference for surviving a motorcycle accident. And although more motorcyclists than ever are wearing helmets when they ride around, accidents still can happen. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, our team of Sacramento motorcycle accident attorneys can make sure your rights are protected and upheld.
