Motorcycle accidents are comparable to other vehicle accidents in some ways, but because of some uncommon characteristics in motorcycles causing the way a motorcycle is ridden, the triggers of motorcycle accidents, the injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents, and the liability issues surrounding motorcycle accidents can vary dramatically from car accidents.
Liability in Motorcycle Accidents
Liability in most motorcycle accidents is governed by the law of “negligence.” In many motorcycle accidents, it is the driver of a car or truck that is negligent. The driver can be negligent for some of the following:
- Distracted driving.
- Drivers speeding.
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Drivers who fail to yield.
- Drivers who fail to keep a lookout.
- Drivers who fail to follow stop signs or traffic lights.
- Drivers following too closely behind a motorcycle.
Of course, the motorcycle rider might be the negligent one as well. An inebriated biker that swerves in front of a car, causing the car to crash, would most likely be liable for injuries suffered by the car’s occupants.
