Motorcycle riders are passionate about their love for two wheels. Some cite the power and beauty of the machines themselves, some cite riding as a lower cost alternative to driving, others like feeling in touch with the road and the world around them. For most, it is probably all the above. Motorcycle riders deserve to be safe, but motorcycle fatalities and serious rider injuries are far too common. Our Oakland motorcycle injury law firm is committed to advocating for riders and their loved ones when motorcycle crashes are caused by negligent, inattentive drivers.
