How do I Prove Liability in a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcyclists know the risks of having to share the road with cars, trucks and other motor vehicles. It is for this reason that most motorcyclists take reasonable precautions to try and prevent being injured in a serious accident. The injuries that motorcyclists commonly sustain even when they are involved in a relatively minor accident can be enough to cause broken bones, neck injuries, back injuries, head injuries, paralysis or death.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be wondering how to find a car accident attorney in Detroit who you can trust to help you prove liability in your case. You may also have a number of questions about your case. To help ease your concerns, here are answers to some of the most common motorcycle accident-related questions I am asked:

If I am involved in a motorcycle accident, what actions can I take to help me prove liability?

Admitting fault or claiming responsibility for any aspect of an accident is never advised. Taking photos of the accident scene, obtaining contact information for potential key witnesses, writing down the sequence of events that lead to the accident, and gathering any other pertinent information will be key in being able to prove liability. If you suspect the other driver's negligence or the fact that he or she was distracted is what lead to your accident, any documentation or specifics you can provide will help with your case.

Who can be held liability in a motorcycle accident?

Any negligent driver or motorcyclist that was involved in the accident can be held liable for his or her actions. In cases where a motorcycle accident may have been caused by a defective product, a failure to maintain a roadway, or another instance of a third-party's negligence, that third party can be held liable for any accident-related injuries and loss.

How can I prove liability if the other driver flees the scene of the accident?

Unless the hit & run driver is caught, there is no way to seek damages from his or her insurance provider. I can help you submit a claim to recover damages from your own insurance company, providing you have uninsured motorist coverage.

What types of expenses am I be eligible to recover?

Most accident victims will be eligible to claim medical expenses, repairs, loss of income and other necessities deemed necessary for their care, recovery and ultimate rehabilitation. I will work diligently to help you maximize your claim, while you work on your recovery.
