Proving Fault in a Motorcycle Accident
Our firm's experience gives us the edge necessary to represent you
in cases involving motorcycle accidents, which are notoriously complex.
Most juries are not made up of motorcyclists - a reality that often fosters
a pronounced "blame the victim" mentality. While this should
not happen, this unfortunately is the reality.
A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
in 2003 found that, in all traffic collisions between motorcyclists and
cars, the driver of the car was either entirely at fault or more at fault in
80 percent of cases. This means that motorcyclists were not to blame or less to blame in four
out of five traffic accidents. These disproportionate numbers emphasize
the fact that many injured motorcyclists are entitled to restitution for
their injuries, and we are committed to pursuing justice on our client's behalf.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Here is a list of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. If you
have experienced injury as a result of one of these types of accidents,
then please don't hesitate to contact Fetto Law Group to speak about
your case during a free, initial consultation.
Left-Hand Turns: Cars that are making a left hand turn, often hit motorcyclists that are
going through the intersection or that are turning right next to them.
The motorcycle's smaller size make it less visible and therefore more
Lane Splitting: During traffic, motorcycles may legally travel between two lanes. Unfortunately,
cars don't always look for motorcycles when merging into another lane
and can hit the motorcycle.
Head-On Collision: When a car veers into oncoming traffic, the result may be especially injurious
to the motorcyclist. This may happen more often when there is no divider
or the driver is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Road Hazards: Potholes, dead animals, unsafe road conditions, uneven lanes, and other
road objects can post a more serious danger to motorcycle than cars. This
claim may be more difficult because the motorcyclist will have to prove
that the highway was not properly maintained.
