Who Caused Your Motorcycle Accident?
One of the first things we do when meeting with clients is to establish who is at fault for your accident and subsequent injuries. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
Another driver may be responsible for the accident. They may have been texting, drinking, driving recklessly, following too closely, or swerving.
Poor Road Conditions
The city or a private company may be responsible for neglecting the upkeep of the roadway. As a result, you may have driven your motorcycle onto loose gravel or hit a pothole that the city failed to address in a timely manner.
A product defect can cause a crash if the motorcycle malfunctioned. Motorcycle crashes often lead to traumatic brain injuries, back problems, or broken bones. The manufacturer, inspector, or retailer may be responsible for your motorcycle accident.
Motorcyclists are often overlooked due to the smaller size of their vehicle. A pedestrian may have not seen you and stepped in front of your motorcycle, causing you to swerve and crash.
