Anyone who has been through a motor vehicle accident knows that it can be a traumatic experience. Whether the accident involved an car, motorcycle, or commercial vehicle, you have the right to take legal action against any person, company, or entity that is responsible.

As consumers, we trust that the products we purchase meet certain standards for safety. We also have to trust that the products used or prescribed by our physicians or made available to purchase are safe and free defects or flaws that could inflict injury, illness, or death.
If you have sustained injuries because of a product defect or recalled drug, you may have a product liability claim.

Motorcycle Accidents


 
Due to the increased susceptibility of motorcycles and the negligence of drivers on the road, motorcycle accidents often result in devastating injuries.

An estimated 50,000 people are injured and 3,000 killed in motorcycle accidents every year in the United States. Because motorcycles are smaller and less protected than automobiles, they are more vulnerable to accidents.

Many factors contribute to the frequency of motorcycle accidents including:

  • Motor vehicle driver negligence – this is the number one cause of motorcycle accidents.
  • Vehicle blind spots – Motorcycles are smaller than most vehicles and are often overlooked by careless drivers
  • Limited visibility – About 70 percent of all accidents occur at intersections because motorcycles aren't as visible due to parked vehicles, buildings, etc.
  • Unsafe vehicle maneuvers – including speeding, improper turning, and more
  • Motorcycle defects – accidents often occur as a result of cycle part defects or fuel system leaks
  • Road hazards – uneven pavements, potholes, debris, and puddles can all result in motorcycle accidents

In the majority of motorcycle accident cases, the negligent vehicle operator can be held liable for the damages suffered including medical bills, property damage, lost income capacity, and pain and suffering.

In some cases, highway officials may be found negligent if roads aren't properly cared for or maintained. Be sure to note that claims against the government are subject to specific guidelines.

Furthermore, if the motorcycle accident was caused by a defective bike or auto part, the motorcycle manufacturer or repairer may be liable. It is important to bear in mind that all personal injury claims are subject to statute of limitations laws, which limits the time a victim of a motorcycle accident has to file a suit.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, it is wise to seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney who will get you the compensation to which you are entitled.
