Motorcycle Accident and Personal Injury Attorney
You’ve just been in a motorcycle accident. Is it worth your time to contact a personal injury attorney?
Liability and Damages in Motorcycle Accident
Liability is who is at fault for the motorcycle accident. If you were at fault, there is not much point in calling an attorney. You must prove that the other driver was negligent. If there is doubt, you might consider calling a personal injury attorney like Brian Hoag.
Damages include the injuries and other losses you suffered because of the accident. The greater the damages, the more you may be awarded.
For a strong case, you need to be able to show both liability and damages. If you and your machine were not injured/damaged, you would probably have no case, regardless of who is at fault.
You are badly injured but there is absolutely no proof that the other driver was at fault, you probably do not have a case. If you are not sure about your case, please fill out a Free Case Evaluation. There may outstanding circumstances.
Courts use the following check list to decide a claim of negligence.You must be able to show that:
- the defendant was not reasonably careful or acting as a reasonable person
- the defendant was not careful
- the defendant’s actions caused your injuries
- you or a passenger was injured or suffered losses
Again, don’t guess whether or not your case meets these qualifications. Talk to a personal injury attorney.
It was My Motorcycle’s Fault
If you think that something about your motorcycle caused the accident, you might have a product liability claim. These cover defectives in either the manufacture of the motorcycle or of the parts. Some motorcycles are particularly dangerous in design. In addition, you might find that either your bike or parts are under recall. If you think you have an issue, we may be able to advise you of your next step.
