During the morning commute on September 29, 2010, a motorcyclist was injured on the Bay Bridge in a collision involving a motorist. A CHP spokesperson said that there were injuries involved, but according to early reports the motorcyclist was seen standing up after the crash. We hope that both the motorcyclist and the driver of the vehicle involved sustained no serious injuries.
While the cause of the accident has yet to be determined, the Bay Bridge is notorious for conflict between motorcyclists and cars. Motorists, in their hurry to get through rush hour traffic, often change lanes suddenly, violating motorcyclist’s right of way. As a law firm specializing in motorcycle collisions, we have represented dozens of motorcyclists injured on the Bay Bridge, often because of sudden lane changes or rear end collisions.
Attorney Christopher Dolan rides motorcycles often throughout the Bay Area and across the Bay Bridge, and has seen firsthand the injury and property damage that can result from the collision of a car or truck with a motorcycle. We would like to extend our sympathies to the biker who was injured.
