An injured passenger in a motorcycle accident has the right to make a claim against the responsible parties and recover damages. • The following parties may be held responsible depending on the circumstances of the accident:
The Motorcycle Operator • If poor decision-making or negligence on the part of the motorcycle operator led to the accident, the operator may be held responsible. • Negligence includes speeding, improper lane changes, improper turns and failure to maintain or repair the motorcycle.
The Driver of Another Vehicle • If the injury was the result of a collision between the motorcycle and another vehicle, an injured passenger can bring a claim against the driver of the other vehicle. • This largely depends on the facts and circumstances of the specific collision.
The Mechanic, Repair Shop or Manufacturer • If the accident happened due to improperly repaired brakes or indicators, a claim can be made against the repair shop or the mechanic. • If the accident happened due to a defect in the design or manufacture of the motorcycle, the manufacturer may be held responsible.
A Government Entity • If the accident was the result of a road defect such as a pothole or uneven surface, the government entity involved may be responsible. • The entity can be the state, the county or the local city or town.
If you or someone you love has been injured as a passenger in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. • Our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers can help you.
