Speeding will get you every time. Over the years your Northern California motorcycle accident law firm has witnessed many clients who received less compensation than they deserved due to the fact that they were deemed partially responsibility for the accident they were in because they were speeding. A jury trial typically contains an element of biker bias to begin with so a speeding charge won’t get you much sympathy from the jurors. In fact, in can greatly diminish the amount of compensation you are granted.
Per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, close to half of all motorcycle accidents do not involve another vehicle. Rather they are solo accidents caused by speeding. Of the other half of motorcycle accidents which involve another vehicle, speeding is also one of the leading factors of accidents.
