Whether you are an injured rider or cyclist, a professional racer with contractual issues, a business or dealership with litigation issues, our attorneys are prepared to protect and serve you or your business, anywhere in California or in the Federal Court system, throughout the United States, via Pro Hac Vice. If we cannot assist you, we will help find counsel that can.
Since 1995, we have successfully helped hundreds of injured riders, professional racers, racing organizations, sanctioning bodies, track day organizations, companies and dealerships with their legal matters. We have also obtained well over $65,000,000.00 in compensation for clients who have been injured in motorcycle, bicycle and auto accidents, through verdicts and settlements.
Since the late 1970's the firm's senior counsel has been an avid motorcyclist. Racing motocross at an early age in Colorado, Alessandro Assanti has gone to compete in AMA Supermoto and the AMA Superbike Events. Most notably, Assanti competed in the WERA West Series, becoming the first over 40 year old to sweep all the big bike pro-am classes, in 2007 (Formula 1, A Superbike, A Superstock and Formula 40 HVT). The next year, Assanti successfully defended the WERA West Superbike title and along the way winning two WERA Superbike National Events (2008 Miller Motorsports Park and 2008 Las Vegas, Classic).
In addition to testing numerous aftermarket parts for companies in the motorcycling markets, most notable, in 2007 and 2008, Assanti assisted in testing traction control systems that were developed by Bazzaz Performance Design, and used by the Jordan Motorsport's AMA Superstock Race Team.
Today, Assanti is an avid cyclist. The firm proudly represents professional cyclists, teams, distributors and aftermarket parts manufacturers in that industry as well.
Assanti knows, on a personal basis, some of the industries best prepared, most knowledgeable and experienced experts who consult and offer their expertise in the proper operation of motorcycling and bicycling or the failure of critical parts responsible for the mechanism of injury. The ability to access these experts on a moments notice, the experience both from a practical and legal standpoint of motorcycling and bicycling gives the firm a better understanding of all aspects of representing the client who was been the victim of an accident while operating a motorcycle or bicycle. In sum, we just do not pretend to be understanding of how a motorcyclist suffers-we ride; we live it, love it and actually do it. Credability is a must with jurors, and so should it be with our clients.
Assanti is one of only two motorcycle trial attorneys in the country with a professional motorcycling background. This experience is also instrumental in understanding the dynamics of riding procedure, braking, acceleration, handling and accident avoidance. This knowledge is essential in immediately assessing the possibility of recovery and what evidence must be gathered to best protect the client and maximise his or her probabilities of prevailing.
