Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
All drivers have a common law duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and to take steps to avoid causing accidents. Still, people do not always live up to this responsibility. Nearly 94% of car accidents are due to human error. Of those accidents nearly half involve intoxicated drivers – either involving alcohol or prescription drugs. Speeding, distracted driving and fatigue tend to also play a significant role.
In certain circumstances even defects with a road or intersection may lead to an accident. For example, a number of crashes take place when an intersection is lacking basic safety features like stop signs. Victim’s of motorcycle accidents are able to recover damages by filing a bodily injury claim against the negligent driver. A motorcycle accident attorney can evaluate the specific facts of your case and let you know if you have a claim that can be pursued.
