The process of recovering damages after a motorcycle head on collision begins with determining whether you or the driver was at fault for the accident. To determine liability, you need to ask: who wasn’t following the rules of the road.
For example, it is against the law to use your phone while driving. It is also illegal to drive above the posted limit. If the other driver was distracted or not following rules of the road, they would clearly be at fault for the accident. In some situations though, fault is less evident.
For instance, when visibility is poor and the other driver unintentionally veers into oncoming traffic, it may be difficult to blame them for the accident. In such instances, a victim may be able to file a claim against the authorities responsible for maintaining the road.
It is important to note that if you are partially at fault for the accident, it may affect your chances of recovering maximum compensation. The amount you can recover will likely be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault.
