Motorcycle operators are especially vulnerable on the road and not just due to the nature of the machine. A large amount of tragic motorcycle accidents are the direct result of negligent car and truck drivers on the road. One of the most common issues is a drivers’ failure to yield the right of way to the motorcycle.
Car and truck drivers have the responsibility to drive carefully, remain vigilant, and share the roads with all vehicles. If a driver fails to fulfill this responsibility and crashes into a motorcycle, or if the drivers actions force the motorcycle into an accident by requiring it to make evasive maneuvers, the automobile driver is responsible for negligence. The Law Offices of Daniel Weltin are committed to protecting the rights of motorcyclists who have been a victim of negligence by other drivers on the road. This includes if you yourself were injured or if you lost the life of a loved one. We have the experience, knowledge and resources to take on personal injury and wrongful death cases.
Additional Causes of Motorcycle Accidents:
- Driver distraction
- Motorcycle mechanical failure due to defective parts, design
- Hazardous, improperly maintained roadways
Driver distraction is the result of the driver’s failure to adhere to required safety laws. Drivers have a responsibility to pay attention to the road and obey all laws during the act of driving. If a driver is distracted by talking to other passengers, texting or talking on a cell phone, reaching down to pick up food or drink, or other behavior and the distraction causes an accident with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist may seek compensation for damages. A motorcyclist who was injured as a result of a defective part may seek compensation from manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and others. Finally, roads must be properly maintained and safe for drivers. In cases a lawsuit may be brought against the government if roadways are found to not be kept up in a condition that promotes public health.
Daniel Weltin Represents Injured Motorcyclists in Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims:
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver then you may seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. Furthermore if a loved one lost their life, the decedent’s family may receive compensation in a wrongful death claim. Remember that insurance companies do not have the client’s best interest in mind but instead can make decisions aimed to save as much money as possible by paying the least amount of compensation possible. In Daniel’s own words, “Under all circumstances, an injured victim should contact an attorney before speaking on a recorded line with an insurance company, even their own.” When you are represented by an experienced, skilled and highly respected lawyer then the insurance companies and liable third parties are more inclined to pay, because they know that your lawyer will not hesitate to take the case to trial for a verdict.
