Establishing Liability in a Motorcycle Accident Case
In a motorcycle accident case, the first thing we do establish who is responsible for your accident and subsequent injuries. The most common reasons a motorcycle accident occur include:
Poor Road Conditions
The company or city responsible for the road failed to maintain a clean and safe road surface. As a result, you may have hit a pothole or slid on loose gravel.
Drivers rarely notice the cyclists until it’s too late. This is often due to driving distracted or intoxicated. A driver may have been following too close, speeding, or swerving, knocking you off the road.
Like drivers, pedestrians often overlook motorcyclists. They may step out into the road, causing the cyclist to swerve and crash into an object. However, proving that it was the pedestrian’s fault can be challenging. It takes a skilled legal team to revisit the accident and determine that it was the pedestrian’s fault.
A product defect becomes an instant liability, often leading to a crash that ends in severe injury or fatality. If you were in a motorcycle crash due to a defective part, the manufacturer may be liable for your damages.
