Johnston County personal injury attorney motorcycle accident

Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating way to travel. Unfortunately, it is also quite risky. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that over 5,000 motorcyclists died in the year 2017 and thousands more were injured. If you or a loved one were hurt in a motorcycle accident, you may be left with enormous medical bills and other expenses related to the crash. A personal injury claim may allow you to recover financial compensation for these costs if a negligent party is found to be at fault.

Establish the At-Fault Party

Before you can seek compensation for your costs through a motorcycle accident injury claim, you will need to determine the party who is liable, or legally responsible, for the accident. Liability may lie with another driver who was under the influence of alcohol, texting and driving or was otherwise driving carelessly. Legal responsibility may also lie with the manufacturer of a faulty motorcycle part, the municipality who failed to properly maintain the road, a trucking company, or a number of other parties. Evidence such as a red-light camera or dash camera footage, vehicle event data recorders, and witness testimony may all be used to confirm the responsible party’s liability. An attorney experienced in car accident injury cases will be able to help you gather evidence to strengthen your claim against the at-fault driver.
