How a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Benefit You
A motorcycle accident can change your life, and you need a lawyer you can trust to get the compensation you and your family need. They will have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation of the crash to establish liability, gather critical evidence, and negotiate a settlement with the insurance companies on your behalf. At that point, if a fair settlement cannot be agreed upon, your lawyer will have been building your case and will represent you at trial.
Who Might Be Liable for My Motorcycle Accident?
After a motorcycle accident, multiple parties could be liable depending on how it was caused. For example:
All motorists have an obligation to follow traffic laws and operate their vehicles safely to prevent others from harm. If you were struck by a negligent driver (e.g., distracted, reckless, drunk, etc.), they will likely be liable for your injuries and other losses.
Sometimes a defective car/motorcycle or part is to blame for a collision (e.g., faulty brakes, airbags, tires, etc.). If a manufacturing defect led to your motorcycle accident, the vehicle or part’s manufacturer might be liable, as well as any other party involved in the product’s distribution chain.
If a driver crashed into you while they were working (e.g., delivery driver, truck driver, etc.), their employer can possibly be held responsible.
Government agencies at both the local and state levels are responsible for maintaining roads to protect drivers and riders from harm. If a dangerous road condition caused your motorcycle accident, for instance, improper signage or guardrail damage, you may have a claim against a government agency.
