Are Motorcycle Riders to Blame?
Negligent drivers who cause motorcycle accidents are very predictable. More often than not, they will blame the motorcycle rider. They will say that the motorcyclist was going too fast. They will say that they did not see the motorcyclist and it was the motorcyclist's fault, rather than acknowledging that they failed to watch for motorcycles. At White & Weddle, P.C., our lawyers make certain that negligent drivers are held accountable for motorcycle accidents they cause, regardless of who they point the finger at.
In some cases, the negligent driver may be partially correct in pointing the finger. While the motorcyclist may not be completely at fault, he or she may have been speeding. The issue of comparative negligence arises. As experienced trial lawyers, we know how to navigate through this issue in order to maximize compensation for the victim.
There May Not Have Been a Collision
In motorcycle accidents, the negligent driver and the motorcyclist may not actually collide. The motorcyclist may lay the bike down in order to avoid a collision. Lack of collision does not mean the victim does not have a case. The negligent driver can still be held accountable for the serious injuries he or she caused. We can help.
What if the negligent driver does not stay at the scene of the motorcycle crash? In many cases, the police will eventually find the negligent driver. If not, the victim still may have recourse through his or her own insurance company.
