Motorcycle Accident Liabilities
Our Experienced Attorneys Will Find the Party at Fault for Your Accident
In motorcycle accident injury cases, the party that caused the accident is considered liable for paying the damages. In some cases, it may be more than one party. But a party may deny responsibility, and getting compensation can be difficult.
Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys know how to establish liability to get injured motorcyclists the financial compensation they need and deserve.
Liable parties in a motorcycle accident can include:
- The at-fault car or truck driver-A driver's negligence may have caused the accident that led to your injuries.
- The motorcycle operator -In some cases, the motorcyclist was at fault, and can be held liable for injuries to a passenger
- A trucking company-If the motorcyclist was injured in a truck accident, negligence on the part of the trucking company may have led to the crash
- A motorcycle or parts manufacturer-The motorcycle, or one of its parts, may have had a defect that caused an accident. The manufacturer of another vehicle could also be responsible if, for instance, a car hit the motorcycle due to faulty brakes.
Insurance companies examining a motorcycle case will start their investigation immediately. It's not unusual for insurance companies to run their investigations to find motorcyclists at fault. We conduct our own investigation into what really happened to identify the party, or parties, actually responsible for your accident.
Then our attorneys go to work to hold those parties accountable. We build a strong case that proves liability. Most often, we are dealing with insurance companies, and we will negotiate with them to reach a settlement that meets your needs. But if we can't reach a deal that works for you, we will fight for you in court.
