In many cases, losing control on a turn is not the fault of the motorcyclist. If you're an experienced motorcyclist, you know that before entering a turn you must brake and slow down and then accelerate into the turn. Even if you know and practice this, however, hazards on the road can still cause a serious injury or accident. An uneven surface or an oil spill can cause you and your motorcycle to go into a slide or to wipe out. In these cases, it is the municipality or city who owns the road who should maintain the road or alert drivers to known hazards.Do You Have a Claim?
If you have been injured because a municipality or a government entity has been negligent, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the owner of the road surface. This can happen if you can prove that:
- The road owner owed you a duty of reasonable care
- The owner of the road breached that duty of reasonable care
- That negligence on the part of the road owner caused your accident
- The accident that was caused by the negligence resulted in damages
Filing a lawsuit against a government entity has special challenges, as governments are protected by special laws to limit their liability. You will need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in order to review your options.
