Like other vehicle accidents, the negligent party is held responsible for motorcycle accidents. Consider negligence liability (link article) when deciding who should be responsible for accident damages. If both parties are somewhat at fault, there may be comparative negligence and they will need to decide to what degree each is liable for damages.
Unlike other motor vehicle accidents, product liability is more common among motorcycle accidents. An issue with design or performance in a vehicle likely just means that it needs to go to a shop, but for motorcycles, there are serious consequences. If your motorcycle wreck was due to a malfunction in your bike, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.
Motorcycle road laws and insurance laws differ in every state. Even within your state’s automobile laws, motorcycle laws are likely a separate entity from other motor vehicle laws. It is helpful to seek consultation with a personal injury attorney who is familiar with the road laws and regulations that apply to you.
The steps necessary to compile a product liability case are extremely complex. If you believe that your motorcycle accident was the result of a malfunction in your motorcycle then you should contact an attorney to help make a claim against the manufacturer.
