Hollywood Single-Bike Accidents
In many cases, motorcycle accidents in Hollywood and other communities occur when a car or truck strikes a motorcycle. However, single bicycle accidents are also possible. These can occur if the motorcyclist loses control of their bike. They are also common types of crashes in inclement weather.
Many drivers assume that they do not have a claim in a single motorcycle accident. After all, there is no other driver or at-fault driver whose insurance company can be contacted in this situation. However, after this type of accident you do have options. To find out more, you can always reach Flaxman Law Group for a free case evaluation.Why do Single Motorcycle Accidents Happen?
In this type of traffic accident, Hollywood motorcyclists often find themselves losing control of their motorcycle for a number of reasons:
- Motorcycle defects
- Poor weather conditions
- Another driver makes an unexpected maneuver, not giving the motorcyclist enough time to maneuver safely
- Poor signage or poor road conditions
- Poor visibility
- Wildlife running across the road
- Debris or potholes on the roadway
- Pedestrians crossing suddenly across the road
- Road work
In some of these cases, someone's negligence and recklessness may be contributing to the accident, which means that the motorcyclist may have a legal claim. For example, if the road was in poor repair and this helped cause an accident, the motorcyclist may have a claim against the municipality or the government entity responsible for maintaining the roads. In many cases, single motorcycle accidents occur because a motorcycle has product defects or manufacturing defects that prevent the vehicle from being completely safe. In these cases, motorcyclists may have a claim against the manufacturer of their motorcycle.What Options do I Have After a Motorcycle Accident in Hollywood?
Single motorcycle accidents tend to be slightly more complicated legal cases (when compared with car accidents), since expert witnesses, private investigators, and others are needed to prove the case. In many cases, police and others who become involved in this type of investigation will often simply blame the motorcyclist, even if the motorcyclist was not fully at fault for the accident.
