Motorcycle Accident Litigation
Motorcycle accident litigation can often involve complex liability issues. A qualified attorney will conduct an independent investigation to determine who is at fault.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Traffic congestion
- Potholes, uneven pavement or other road hazards
- Defective parts
- Inadequate repairs
- Visual obstructions
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
In addition to other drivers on the road, other possible sources of liability include repair shops, manufacturing companies and the government. These defendants and their insurers have skilled lawyers who protect them from litigation. It is important to have the full support of a skilled and experienced motorcycle accident attorney who can help prove your case and get you the compensation you need.
