Motorcycle Defects

If you have been involved in single bike motorcycle accident, you may be wondering if you have any legal recourse. The fact is, you may have an action against any parties that contributed to your motorcycle accident. Not all motorcycle accidents occur because of the fault of the rider, and there can be a number of factors involved in the accident.

Who is Responsible?

While every case is different, there are certain factors that may have been involved in your motorcycle accident such as:

Equipment Failure. If your motorcycle accident occurred due to an equipment failure, including the malfunction of part of the motorcycle or your safety gear, you could have a product liability and personal injury claim against the company that manufactured the defective product. It is important to have your Missouri motorcycle accident lawyer go over all of your warranty information for your motorcycle, tires, and helmet for instance. The manufacturer, dealer and even a mechanic that worked on your bike could be held responsible.

Poor Road Conditions. Bikes are inherently less stable than motor vehicles. Because of this, motorcycles are susceptible to poor road conditions such as potholes or road debris. In this instance, it is important to be aware that governmental agencies are responsible for maintaining and keeping roads in a reasonably safe condition. It is possible to have an action against state or local government for failing to maintain the roadways. The time frame within which to file against these types of entities is very short, so it is important to speak with a Missouri motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm without delay.

Negligence of Others Aggravated Your Injuries. While the accident may have been your fault, the injuries you sustained were aggravated because of the negligence of another party.

Whether it was a single party accident, or involved another motor vehicle, the injuries sustained from a motorcycle incident can be significant, and can include wrongful death. Serious injuries can include:

  • Traumatic brain and head injuries:
  • Fractures, broken bones:
  • Neck, back and spinal cord injuries:
  • Soft tissue trauma.

If you have been injured in a single bike motorcycle accident, it is important to act promptly to ensure your rights are protected. There are strict filing deadlines in order to pursue these types of claims. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including compensation for your medical bills, time missed from work and pain and suffering. Contact E.
