Successful litigation of a serious or fatal motorcycle accident can be difficult, requiring specialized knowledge, skills, and experience. To determine who should be held responsible for an accident involving a motorcycle, we first determine how and why the accident occurred. The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is negligent driving by other drivers on the road. Common types of negligent driving include:
- Failure to follow posted speed limits
- Failure to yield when appropriate
- Following too closely
- Failure to check for smaller vehicles during a lane change
- Cutting off a motorcyclist at an intersection
Negligent driving by other drivers is the most common cause of motorcycle accidents, however, there may be more than one party responsible for the accident. For example, while a negligent driver may have caused the accident, a defect in the road, or a defective motorcycle part or helmet could have exacerbated the victim’s injuries or made it more difficult for the motorcycle rider to avoid injury. One or more of the following parties could be responsible for an accident:
- The driver of the other vehicle
- The motorcycle manufacturer
- The government entity responsible for roadway design, maintenance, or construction
- The mechanic responsible for motorcycle maintenance and inspections
- A seller or manufacturer of motorcycle safety equipment
Since motorcyclists have little protection between themselves and other vehicles, the injuries sustained in these accidents may be particularly devastating. Paralysis, loss of limbs, disfigurement, brain damage, neck or spinal cord injuries, head trauma, bone fractures, and death are tragically common in these cases.
It is possible that multiple parties may be held accountable for the motorcycle accident victim’s injuries. Our job is to help those injured in motorcycle accidents pursue maximum compensation for their injuries and other damages.
