Motorcycle accidents can touch on many areas of law, such as product liability, personal injury, and property rights. Here you’ll find helpful information about motorcycle accidents and the law – including helmet laws, fault issues, and product defects and recalls – as well as tips on protecting your legal rights and what to expect after a motorcycle accident. Motorcycles can be particularly dangerous vehicles.
CAR DRIVER NEGLIGENCE: A PRIMARY CAUSE OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
While motorcycle accidents can be the fault of the motorcycle driver, they are more often the result of negligent automobile drivers, despite misconceptions to the contrary. Accidents often occur because automobile drivers are not alert to the presence of motorcyclists sharing the road, not because of reckless driving on the part of the motorcyclists. Unfortunately, it is often the motorcyclists who suffer the worst of the injuries in an accident. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 50 percent of motorcycle accidents resulting in death involve another vehicle, and 42 percent of two-vehicle fatal motorcycle crashes involved a vehicle turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or overtaking the vehicle. It is important to know that if you have suffered as a result of a motorcycle accident, you are not alone.
