Motorcyclists have the same rights on the road as automobile drivers. Although the operation of motorcycles is inherently more dangerous, other people using the road have the same duty drive safely around motorcycles. Motorcycle riders are at a disadvantage in most traffic accidents and are often more likely to suffer serious injury or death. As motorcycle rider, you can recover for the negligence of the driver of the car that contributed to the accident. Our accident lawyers will work relentlessly to help you recover money to compensate you for your medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, damage to your motorcycle, and pain and suffering
Furthermore, our motorcycle lawyers will work to establish strict liability on the part of a motorcycle manufacturer by proving: the motorcycle was in a defective condition that made it unreasonably dangerous, the defective condition of the motorcycle was attributable to the defendant, the defective condition of the motorcycle was a proximate cause of the injury for which recovery is sought, and the defendant is engaged in the business of manufacturing or selling motorcycles. Despite the inherent dangers of motorcycles, there is no excuse on the part of the motorcycle manufacturers for failing to provide reasonable, cost-acceptable safety features to reduce the severity of injuries suffered.
