Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Insurance companies tend to look for ways to blame the motorcyclist when they are involved in an accident. An experienced lawyer will gather all the evidence necessary to prove the other party’s fault. This includes:
Photos and video footage of the scene.
Police and accident reports
Video surveillance from businesses and traffic cams, if available
Eyewitness statements of the crash
An accident reconstruction expert if necessary.
Because of their experience in dealing with insurance companies, a motorcycle accident attorney will protect you from their tactics and knows how to negotiate to get the fair amount of compensation you are owed. They will also be prepared to represent you in court if that’s what it takes.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Many different situations can lead to a severe motorcycle accident, but when it is a driver of a car’s fault, they most commonly involve:
Drifting into the motorcyclist’s lane or cutting them off
Failing to check blind spots
Sudden and unnecessary braking
Failing to adjust for dangerous road or weather conditions
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
When a motorcyclist may be responsible for an accident:
Driving without proper training or licenses
Following too closely
Failing to inspect their motorcycle or maintain them
Failing to use headlights
Driving while impaired
Failure to use safety equipment, such as reflective materials, a helmet, and a face shield
In some accidents, a third party may be liable. For example, a motorcycle or parts manufacturer if a defective bike or part caused the accident, or a government agency if a poorly maintained road caused the collision.
