Personal Injury Legal Help in Riverside for a Combined 22 Years
If you’re a biker, you probably know that lane splitting, or lane sharing, is legal in California. You may even know that, in all of the U.S., lane splitting by motorcyclists is only legal in California.
You may, however, not realize the full complexity of California law regarding lane splitting, or how this complexity can affect a personal injury claim involving a motor bike and lane sharing. Specifically:
- Lane splitting in California is only legal if it is done “in a safe and prudent manner”
- Following a motorcycle accident, state troopers are often the one who decide if lane splitting was executed safely
- If the state trooper decided that the lane splitting in question was not done safely and prudently, it will be extremely difficult to convince a judge otherwise
- If an injured biker is deemed by a trooper and judge to have unsafely lane split, it may be difficult to recover the full compensation he or she is owed by an insurer
