Motorcycle Lane Splitting – Legal or Illegal – Who is at fault

This post will be an introduction to an in depth look at liability concerns involving an automobile accident / motorcycle accident. Although Wikipedia is not a legal database (and by far, not a decisive authority), I found this article, although not complete, to be very informative:

“In California no law explicitly and clearly prohibits lane splitting, and significantly, it has become the traditional policy of law enforcement, the courts, and the public in California to tolerate it when it is done safely.”

If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident, after taking care of your imminent medical needs, it is extremely important to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer. It is also advisable to seek an attorney who truly understands what goes on in the mind of a rider – someone who is/was a motorcycle rider. I started riding in 2004 and will ensure that your rights are protected. Please contact the Friedman Law Offices by filling out the online form or calling us at 323-596-1234. It is important to call as close to the time of the accident as possible. Remember, no attorney fee is ever taken unless we get you the money you deserve!
