In most motor vehicle accidents, there is an at-fault driver that has caused an accident. For example, if you are in a rear end shunt accident, it may be clear relatively early that the driver behind you was distracted or failed to stop in time and plowed into your vehicle. However, in a single motorcycle accident, it is harder to detect the negligent party, in many cases. All too often, authorities and insurance companies will blame the motorcyclist for the accident, even if there was another cause for the crash. In many cases, there may be law multiple liable parties in this type of case, including:
- The manufacturer of the motorcycle or the maker of individual motorcycle parts
- The mechanic responsible for maintaining or repairing the motorcycle
- The municipality or construction company responsible for building or maintaining the road where the accident took place
The reality is that there may be many reasons for a single bike crash, including:
- Road debris
- Poor signage
- Poor road design
- Wildlife running onto the road
- Poor visibility
- Bad weather
- Mechanical failure
Some of these situations are preventable and are caused by negligence. Because of the frequent confusion following a single bike accident, it is important for a motorcyclist who has been seriously injured in this type of collision to speak with a personal injury attorney immediately following their accident so that they can get a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident underway. It is important not to get blamed for causing a collision that you did not cause.
