How to Prove You Were Not at Fault
Establishing fault in a motorcycle case is extremely difficult so it is important that you work with an experienced motorcycle lawyer to help with this crucial step. Insurance companies will often argue that their insured driver was not at fault in the accident because they were unable to see the motorcyclist. Our experienced motorcycle lawyers are able to use their skill and resources to prove that you were not at fault and are entitled to compensation for accidents caused by the following problems, among others:
- Drunk drivers
- Dangerous roads
- Distracted drivers
Even if you were partially at fault in a motorcycle accident, you are not barred from receiving compensation. If we can prove that another actor was at least partially at fault you will be able to recover for your injuries, though the total amount may be lower than if you were not at fault.
What if My Accident Was Caused by A Defect on My Motorcycle
If you accident was caused by a defective motorcycle rather than another driver, you still may be able to recover compensation. First and foremost you should consult a lawyer who can investigate the cause of the problem. Sometimes defects are a result of the manufacturer of the part, the manufacturer of the motorcycle, or even the garage where the motorcycle was serviced. Some examples of motorcycle defects include:
- Handlebar defects
- Tire defects
- Fuel line defects
- Wiring defects
- Brake defects
- Headlight, taillight, and turning signal defects
Motorcycle defect cases are complex but our experienced Pawtucket motorcycle accident lawyers are capable of handling them.
