Why You Need a Lawyer

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries that can quickly lead to hefty medical bills, long-term physical therapy costs, and unpaid time off from work. Victims of accidents caused by motorcycle defects often face financial ruin from mounting medical debts while the responsible party is left entirely unscathed. The law protects victims and their families from suffering undue hardships that were forced upon them by an irresponsible motorcycle part manufacturer, and you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation for the company’s negligence. However, these types of claims are complicated. The best way to achieve justice is by hiring a qualified law firm that has experience in handling motorcycle accidents that were caused by defective parts.

Types of Motorcycle Defects

Manufacturer defects can cause a variety of problems in motorcycles, but the most significant risk is when these manufacturing flaws jeopardize the safety of drivers on the road. Many components on a motorcycle pose immediate threats to safety when they fail, such as the following:

  • Brakes: Brakes are critical to maintaining safety on a motorcycle. When brakes don’t function properly, the motorcyclist may not be able to slow down or stop, resulting in a severe accident.
  • Tires and Wheels: Defective tires can unexpectedly blowout, lose traction, and ultimately, cause the driver to lose control. Wheels that are poorly manufactured can fail by crumpling under pressure from going over large bumps at high speeds, becoming indented, and causing the bike to wobble to the point of disaster. Wheels have also been known to fall apart, forcing the motorcyclist to crash.
  • Handlebars: When this component fails, the rider is unable to steer the motorcycle or safely control the vehicle effectively.
  • Fuel Systems: Fuel systems can become undone and leak. These leaks can cause the tires to lose traction if oil falls in front of the tire, and fires are much more likely when fuel sources are exposed to a hot engine. Engines that are starved of fuel may randomly shut off or stall, causing the rider to wreck.
  • Other Vehicles: This category can include defective parts in another vehicle that cause other drivers to lose control and cause an accident with a motorcyclist.

Defects can happen in any vehicle at any time, and it is essential to know that you may still have the right to file a claim against a manufacturer for a defective part in the other vehicle that caused your accident. That’s why it is critical that you retain the services of a highly qualified motorcycle accident attorney that can investigate all aspects of your accident.
