Do I Need A San Francisco Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
It is vital that you contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer if you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident in San Francisco and would like to receive fair, adequate compensation for your injuries and any damages resulting from your injuries, like medical bills and lost wages. The best accident lawyers will also be able to get you the finest medical treatment available for your injuries.
You won’t be able to obtain fair compensation for your injuries without a lawyer because insurance companies won’t offer you fair compensation if you don’t have a lawyer. Insurance companies don’t fear you and they don’t respect you if you don’t have a lawyer, so they will offer you a pittance and dare you to take them to court.
Insurance adjusters are also trained to manipulate you into admitting fault for an accident. They can literally trick you into admitting fault for an accident that wasn’t your fault! It’s very dangerous for you to talk to the insurance companies; you should have a lawyer talk to them for you instead while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
Insurance companies fear and respect Nadrich & Cohen. They know we’ve amassed a network of the best motorcycle accident experts in the Bay Area. They know we’ve been successfully obtaining policy limits settlements for our motorcycle clients for 30 years. They know it’s a waste of time and money to go to court against us.

Contacting a well-respected motorcycle accident law firm like Nadrich & Cohen, LLP is of the utmost importance if you want fair compensation and the finest medical treatment for your injuries.
The Path To A Motorcycle Accident Recovery
The path to your motorcycle accident recovery is paved by California Civil Code Section 1714 (a), which holds those who cause injuries via negligence responsible for those injuries.
Negligence, according to California civil jury instructions, is not using reasonable care for the sake of harm prevention. California juries are instructed that it is negligent to not do what a reasonably careful person would do in the same situation. However, the juries are also instructed that it is negligent to do what a reasonably careful person would not do in the same situation. Thus, doing something and doing nothing can both be negligent.
Additional California civil jury instructions establish what must be proven in a negligence claim, that being:
- Negligence occurred
- Someone was hurt
- The negligence substantially caused the harm
We can obtain compensation for many things by proving that your motorcycle accident occurred because of somebody else’s negligence, including:
- Medical bills
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
- Motorcycle damage
- Wrongful death
- Loss of wages
- Lost earning potential
- Modifications to vehicle or home for disability accommodation
- Loss of consortium
