Every day distracted, careless car and truck drivers engage in dangerous driving behavior that injures and kills bikers - motorcyclists, bicyclists and scooter drivers - who share the road with them. And after they've caused accidents and injuries, we hear the same story-"I didn't see him"-or some other variation that puts the blame on the biker.
At the law office of Choulos Choulos & Wyle, our personal injury attorney are committed to holding negligent motorists accountable for the motorcycle accidents they cause.
We're bikers ourselves . We've run the roadway gauntlet of drivers on cell phones, trucks accelerating through intersections and vehicles swerving into our lane. California highway driving requires constant vigilance, but not even experienced bikers can always avoid injury.
If your loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident involving a car or truck, contact our San Francisco law office to speak with an attorney who really understands. If your injuries prevent you from traveling, we'll meet you at home or in the hospital to discuss your case.
We Are Here to Protect Your Interests (Insurers Are NOT)
Our attorneys often hear the same story —"I didn't see him" — or some other excuse that puts the blame squarely on the biker, not on the motorist's dangerous driving.
Frequent causes of serious motorcycle accidents include:
- Racing to beat the light
- Sudden lane changes
- Unexpected left hand turns
- Sudden stops
Dangerous road conditions, or a defective car or motorcycle part could have played a significant role in your accident. Perhaps a manufacturing defect in your bike helmet made the injuries worse. We won't know unless we carefully investigate the dynamics of your motorcycle accident.
Our firm has extensive experience handling all kinds of motorcycle accident investigations and knows how to preserve valuable evidence. In fact, we frequently retain the services of accident reconstructionists to aid in our investigations.
Saying the wrong thing after a motorcycle accident can limit the amount of money you can receive for your losses. Before you provide a statement to an insurance claims adjuster or accept a settlement offer, we strongly urge you to speak with a lawyer. Your consultation with us is always free.

Sometimes the toughest part of a motorcycle accident case is finding enough insurance or assets to cover the costs of a serious personal injury. In one of our most recent cases, when a negligent car driver crashed into our client, crushing his foot, her insurance was not enough to cover his injuries. She tried to hide her personal assets but we aggressively pursued the truth in her case and got him the financial recovery he deserved.
