When another driver causes a motorcycle accident, the first step is typically to file a personal injury claim with their auto insurance company. Then, if seeking a settlement through a claim is unsuccessful, you might decide to sue the other driver.
Sometimes, a motorcycle accident can result from a defective motorcycle part or another issue with the vehicle. In this instance, the manufacturer of the bike can be responsible for your accident.
If you suspect a defect caused your accident, you will want to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer in Atlanta, South Fulton, Smyrna, or Roswell such asThe Law Offices Of Cory J Lynch immediately. We can begin investigating the accident, what went wrong, and who was ultimately responsible. If the manufacturer was at fault for your accident, they can be sued for your damages.
If you were in a motorcycle accident, hit your head, and sustained injuries because of a problem with your helmet, the manufacturer of the helmet might be at least partially at fault for your damages.
Although another party is likely at fault for the actual accident, you may still be able to sue the helmet manufacturer if you suffered damages you would not have sustained if the helmet had worked properly. This is another situation where you’ll need a lawyer like us who can investigate the details for you.
The dealership that sold you the motorcycle might be at-fault in the accident. If an issue with the bike caused the accident that the dealership knew about, yet they sold the bike to you, you may be able to sue them for damages.
