As a motorist or a passenger, here are some steps to become more aware of motorcyclists:
- Respect the motorcyclist – Remember the motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the privileges of any vehicle on the roadway. Give the motorcyclist a full lane of travel.
- Look out – Look for the motorcyclist on the highway, at intersections, when a motorcyclist may be making a left turn, and when a motorcyclist may be changing lanes. Clearly signal your intentions.
- Anticipate a motorcyclist’s maneuver – Obstructions (debris, potholes, etc.) that you may ignore or not notice can be deadly for a motorcyclist. Predict evasive actions.
- Allow plenty of space – Don’t follow a motorcycle too closely. Allow enough room for the motorcyclist to take evasive actions.

What Makes Us Different?
There are five factors that separates Sadiq Law Firm, P.C. from other firms practicing personal injury law.
Common Reason for Motorcycle Accidents
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, consult an experienced attorney who can fight your negligence case for you. Comparative negligence is the theory that both parties involved in an accident are at fault and therefore, neither party should be allowed to be compensated for 100% of their damages. California personal injury law applies a “pure” comparative negligence standard. Meaning, if the injured victim is assigned 99% of the fault in the accident, the victim can still recover 1% of his or her damages from the other party. Comparative negligence in motorcycle accident cases are pretty tricky to understand. Consult an attorney who can help you get compensated for what you truly deserve.
