Motorcycle Accident

What are common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Like any type of vehicle accident, there are many reasons that motorcycle accidents occur, including road hazards, cars turning in front of motorcycles, alcohol use, lane splitting, and speeding. In car- motorcycle accidents, in some instances fault lies with the driver of the car, while in other cases it is the fault of the motorcyclist.

How is liability determined in a motorcycle accident?

In a motorcycle accident injury case, as in any type of injury case, an investigation of the accident will determine whose actions caused the accident. Operators of all vehicles are required to operate them in a safe way. If the accident was caused by a car speeding, then the driver of the cause would be liable. If the accident was caused because the operator of the motorcyclist was operating the motorcycle recklessly, then the motorcyclist would be liable.

How much compensation will I receive from being hurt in a motorcycle accident?

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled depends largely on who was at fault and the severity of your injuries. If another person such as the driver of a car or a part manufacturer, was a fault, then you can sue that person for your medical expenses, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering. The more severe your injuries, the more you are likely to receive because your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering will be more.
