Liability in Motorcycle Accidents
Like auto accidents, liability in accidents involving motorcycles are determined using the laws of negligence. Drivers often claim they didn’t see the motorcycle, however, it is likely they were not paying attention or looking out for motorcyclists. These accidents can result in severe injuries, even where motorcyclists wear helmets, including injuries to the head, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even damage to vital organs.
