Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Get Help From a Team That Cares About Your Recovery. We Feel Your Pain.

Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience. While four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are common. Motorcycles do not offer much protection in an accident. Even though California motorcyclists must wear a helmet by law, these alone cannot prevent all injuries.

Motorcycle accidentAccidents involving motorcycles can cause serious injuries including:

As on avid rider put it: ”Asphalt. The world’s fastest tattoo remover.” Due primarily to the lack of a typical motor vehicle’s exterior “shell” protection, per vehicle mile traveled in 2012,motorcyclists were more than 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in motor vehicle accidents and five times more likely to be injured in traffic accidents.

If you have suffered a serious accident on a motorcycle, don’t wait to talk with a Sacramento motorcycle accident attorney. Call (916) 525-7761 today.

The Unfair Misconception

There seems to be an unfair belief that all motorcyclists are dangerous drivers and are themselves to blame for motorcycle accidents. This unfair prejudice and misconception can prevent motorcyclists from being treated fairly after an accident. Other drivers, and even some police officers, attorneys, and judges might assume that because a motorcycle was involved, the motorcycle driver is at fault.

Therefore, after a motorcycle accident do not get mad or argumentative with anyone at the accident scene, including the driver who caused the accident or the police. In addition, you should never speak with any investigator or insurance company until you first speak to your Sacramento motorcycle accident attorney.

Full Service Legal Counsel

When you hire Miller Injury Attorneys after your motorcycle accident, we immediately act to protect all your interests. Being a full service personal injury law firm, we handle everything start to finish to help eliminate the stress caused by your accident and injuries. We get you to the best medical providers, with no upfront costs, who quickly evaluate and treat your injuries.

We immediately contact the insurance company for the other driver and tell them they must now contact us, not you, regarding your accident. We contact and stop the bill collectors, seeking collection of ambulance or emergency room bills. We get these promptly paid either by the other driver’s insurance, your own insurance “med pay” coverage, or can negotiate significant bill reductions.

Once you are finished with your medical journey, we obtain copies of all your medical records and bills, wage loss information, and property damage estimates and submit detailed settlement demands on your behalf. While time does in fact heal most injuries, time is not on your side after a motorcycle accident, and you should contact a lawyer immediately to protect your rights.

The Stats

With the rising popularity of motorcycles and the nearly perfect riding climate in California, more and more people are riding motor bikes, at all ages. Unfortunately, from 2003- 2012, motorcycle deaths increased by 33%. Among those increases, the 40 and older age group increased from 46% of motorcyclists killed in 2003 to 56% in 2012. In 2003, the average age of motorcyclists killed in traffic actions was 38 as opposed to 43 in 2012.

What do I do after a motorcycle accident?

You should follow these simple, but important steps after you have been involved in a motorcycle accident:

  • Remember, it is often difficult if not impossible to determine the full nature and extent of your injuries at the scene of an accident. If you think you may have been injured in any way, call for an ambulance and seek medical treatment immediately.
  • After immediate health concerns have been addressed, make sure the Highway Patrol or local police are called to the scene. They can take important measurements and photographs as well as interview witnesses that can be important to your case.
  • Try not to move your motorcycle, unless you are in danger by keeping it where it is (and you are physically capable of moving it). Its position should be documented and photographed by the highway patrol or local law enforcement.
  • It is important to gather as much information as you can from the scene of the motorcycle accident. You should get witness information. You should also get the name, address, phone number, insurance information, driver’s license and vehicle information from any of the other drivers involved in the collision.
  • If possible, take photos of the accident scene and the damage to your motorcycle (cell phones are good for this purpose). Later, make sure you photograph your injuries.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”

  • Absolutely Terrific!

    “Mr. Miller was absolutely terrific, settling my difficult fall case quickly and efficiently.”

    Linda O.

  • He did as he said he would!!

    “Mr.Miller was an awesome lawyer. He treated us Like family. He did exactly what he said he would. I would absolutely refer him to someone looking for a lawyer! Thank you Mr. Miller.”

    Jacquetta H.

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

    Former Client

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”
