Our Oakland Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Handle All Types of Crashes
Our highly experienced motorcycle accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation after a:
- Speed-Related Motorcycle Accident
- DUI-Related Motorcycle Accident
- Rear-End Motorcycle Accident
- Blind Spot Motorcycle Accident
- Intersection Motorcycle Accident
- Left-Turn Motorcycle Accident
- Run Off the Road Motorcycle Accident
- Merging Motorcycle Accident

Whatever type of accident you were involved in, the best thing to do is take photos of the crash site, the property damage, and your injuries. Exchange information with the other driver and ask for witnesses’ names and contact information. Most importantly, get medical help right away. You should be examined by a doctor as soon as possible to ensure your injuries are diagnosed and appropriately treated.
Once you are stable at the hospital or at home, your next step should be to call an Oakland motorcycle accident lawyer. You should not talk with the other driver’s insurance company until you obtain legal advice.
It is important to understand that the insurance company will not look out for your best interests. It is more concerned with protecting its policyholder and its bottom line. To that end, an insurer will always look for reasons to not have to pay you. Anything you say to the insurer can be used by the company to deny your claim or limit your compensation.
We Conduct In-Depth Motorcycle Crash Investigations
When you are in a vehicle-motorcycle collision, you may be confident the motorist is to blame. However, the driver may try to say you were at fault for the crash. The best way to prepare for a potentially difficult insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit is to work with a motorcycle accident lawyer in Oakland right away.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we believe in promptly beginning an independent investigation into the crash. We do not rely on a hastily completed police report or on the insurer’s conclusions. We will gather as much evidence as possible, including photos, video, and eyewitness reports. We will use the available evidence to build a case against the at-fault driver.
Over the years, our investigations have uncovered some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes, including:
- Distracted Driving
- Drowsy Driving
- Alcohol and Drug Impairment
- Careless Lane Changes
- Careless Merging
- Defective Vehicles
- Defective Roads
- Unprotected Left Turns
- Blind Curves
