When a motorcycle accident occurs, many people automatically assume that the person on the motorcycle was the person who caused the accident. For some reason, bikers who follow traffic laws and drive in a safe manner are grouped in with bikers who push the limits of the law and the motorcycle. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, getting medical care for your injuries is a priority. From there, determining the cause of the accident is necessary.
When it is time to determine the cause of the accident, you might have a lot of investigative work to do. Interestingly, not all motorcycle accidents are caused by errors on the part of the biker or another driver on the roadway. We can help you to determine the cause of the accident so that we can ensure the appropriate parties are listed in your civil claim for compensation.
In some cases, defects with the motorcycle might be the cause of the accident. If a defect in the motorcycle was the cause of the accident, you could seek compensation from the manufacturer of the motorcycle instead of seeking compensation from another driver.
Even if another driver was the cause of the motorcycle accident, that driver might not be the only party that can be held liable in a civil lawsuit for the accident. In some cases, you can also hold the insurance company and other parties liable for the accident.
We know that you probably didn’t expect to be involved in accident, so you weren’t braced financially for the effects of the accident. Seeking compensation might help you to get the financial stability that you need after the accident.
