YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT MAY NOT BE YOUR FAULT
South Florida roads can be dangerous for any type of driver, but none more than motorcyclists. Unfortunately, these accidents often lead to serious injury or death for the rider. Motorcycle accidents often involve other vehicles, but can also involve no other vehicle at all. These are known as single bike motorcycle accidents.
These are instances when a motorcyclist has simply lost control and collided with a tree, construction barriers or anything else capable of causing injury. Similar to other types of accidents, the ones involving a single bike can create dangerous conditions for anyone involved. There have been situations throughout the state of Florida where these types of accidents were the result of negligent maintenance of roadways, issue of failure with a motorcycle part or having to swerve from a negligent driver.
It is a common misconception of those involved in single bike motorcycle accidents, that they have no monetary recourse to their sustained injury, because only one vehicle was involved. This is where speaking to an attorney about your accident is necessary to help determine if you have a case.
TYPES OF CLAIMS ASSOCIATED WITH SINGLE BIKE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
There are several types of legal claims that can be pursued if you were involved in a motorcycle accident, even where your bike was the only vehicle involved. Some of these claims include:
- Claims for Personal Injury – If you were injured while riding your motorcycle because of negligent roadway construction, failure to place proper traffic signs, or any other inadequate attempt at making the roads safe, there may be someone with the city, town, or county who is responsible to you.
- Claims for Products Liability– If the cause of your single bike motorcycle accident was the fault of a defective product on the motorcycle, the manufacturer of the bike may be liable to you for your injuries.
- Claims for Wrongful Death – If a loved one has died in a single bike motorcycle accident, there may be a party who is responsible for their death and owes compensation to the family.
