Liability In Motorcycle Collisions
Every driver has a responsibility to operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe manner and take steps to avoid accidents. According to the California Vehicle Code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.”
San Francisco can be a particularly dangerous place for motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. This is why city officials have been pushing hard to implement Vision Zero. The goal is to eventually reduce traffic deaths to zero over the coming years. Any person that is injured in a motorcycle accident may have the ability to recover damages through a bodily injury claim.
