Representing Injured Motorcyclists After Accidents

Many motorists fail to see motorcycles on the road. This is a serious issue and one we take to heart at the Traffic Accident Law Center. As someone who rides, attorney Steve Gnau understands the dangers on the road. His personal experience and knowledge of the legal issues motorcyclists face after an accident help him advocate for you.

You expect everyone to drive responsibly and follow the rules of the road. Unfortunately, when motorists fail to follow these rules, your life is put at stake. Motorcycle accident cases need to be handled by a qualified lawyer who will fight aggressively to defend your rights. We will stand up for your rights and work diligently on your case from start to finish.

Our Trial Experience

Our trial experience and case results speak for themselves. As skilled trial lawyers, we have successfully handled claims against other drivers, insurance companies, motorcycle manufacturers and construction companies after a crash.

While many personal injury attorneys claim to have experience with motorcycle accidents, few actually ride, and our track record and success are well-respected due to our commitment to every client.

Motorcycle Accident Case Result

Armstrong vs. Breslin, et al. – In this motorcycle versus motorcycle accident, the case was tried before the San Diego County Superior Court, El Cajon district. Attorney Daniel Tamez was recognized for his outstanding result in this trial and awarded the prestigious Outstanding Trial Lawyer in 2007 by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. Our client was severely injured with multiple fractures and other injuries when another motorcycle driver drove directly in front of our client. The responsible party argued that our client was speeding and had veered into him and that our client was the sole cause of the motorcycle accident. However, at trial, the jury awarded the full amount of our client's damages without any reduction. The judge disallowed what we viewed as the insurance companies' improper tactics, and that caused the insurance company to incur an additional cost of about $35,000 (to the benefit of our client).
