Mechanical Failure In South Miami And Florida Can Lead to Bike Crashes

Single bike accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. For example, negligent drivers on the road may cause motorcyclists to veer out of control and crash into a stationary object. Poor road design or poor road maintenance are also common issues involved in single bike accidents, as motorcyclist are more vulnerable to potholes and uneven surfaces on the road as well as other design issues.

However, some single motorcycle accidents are caused by mechanical failure. Mechanical failure can involve:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Gas leaks
  • Brake failure
  • Maneuverability issues
  • Problems with the headlights or lights
  • Engine issues

Any time that a part of the motorcycle fails, the motorcyclist is at risk. In these situations, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney if a mechanical failure appears to have caused a crash. In some cases, these issues are caused by manufacturing defects and the motorcyclist who has been injured may have a product liability claim in South Miami or their community that allows them to seek compensation for lost wages, motorcycle repairs, medical costs, and the many other expenses that they will face.

Manufacturers of motorcycles are expected to manufacture and sell safe, carefully tested motorcycles. When they fail to do so due to poor design, a poor manufacturing process, or other issues, they can be held liable if their defective product causes an injury. In these cases, it is important for the motorcyclist to seek justice and compensation. Not only does it secure financial resources for quality medical care and other expenses, but in many cases a lawsuit in this type of situation can prompt a recall or important manufacturing or design changes that can help prevent other motorcyclists from being injured.
