Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
According to III, “Motorcycles are by their nature far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are also less visible to other drivers and pedestrians and less stable than four-wheel vehicles. Operating a motorcycle requires a different combination of physical and mental skills than those used in driving four-wheel vehicles.” Here are just a few of the most common reasons why motorcycle accidents occur:
- Driver distraction
- Driver intoxication
- Driver fatigue
A number of motorcycle accidents also occur when drivers make unsafe lane changes. According to California Vehicle Code 22107, “No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course or move right or left upon a roadway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety and then only after the giving of an appropriate signal in the manner provided in this chapter in the event any other vehicle may be affected by the movement.”
Any person that is injured in a motorcycle accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help with lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Many victims may not even realize the full extent of their injuries until several months or weeks after an accident. A motorcycle accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
