Determining Liability in a Motorcycle Accident

Who was responsible in your motorcycle crash?

Motorcycle riders are seen by some as reckless speed demons. In movies and on television, they are portrayed as rebels. In reality, many motorcycle riders ride safely and defensively. Bikers love to ride on the open road. They have a right to share the road with other vehicles.

Unfortunately, the negative image of motorcycle riders does not help them when dealing with motorcycle insurance claims. When accidents happen, insurance companies may try to place at least some of the blame on the motorcyclist.

At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers are skilled at investigating the liability in the accident to try to make sure our clients are treated fairly. In determining liability in a motorcycle accident, we want to find out who caused the accident. In many cases, the driver of the other car that hit you will say he or she did not "see" the motorcycle. In this case, the driver may be liable.

Examples of negligence in motorcycle accidents

Other common examples of motorcycle accidents caused by negligent drivers include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Driver turns in front of motorcycle in intersection
  • Driver cuts off motorcycle rider in lane
  • Driver strikes a motorcycle head-on while trying to pass another car
