Motorcycle accidents claim the lives of thousands of people year, and leave countless others severely injured. Because motorcyclists have virtually no protection in the event of an accident, they are incredibly vulnerable to injury. Even when precaution is taken by driving safely and wearing the appropriate protective gear, motorcyclists can still stand to face a number of serious crippling injuries in the event of an accident.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim
Motorcycle accident claims are typically filed against another driver. Anytime a driver fails to abide by traffic safety laws, and thus causes a serious accident, he or she may be held liable for damages. This may include drunk driving, racing, running red light, driving recklessly, failing to stop at a stop sign, etc. A motorcycle accident claim can also be filed against the manufacturer if a defect on the motorcycle caused the accident to occur. Less often, claims are filed against city or county governments when the driver responsible for the accident was a city or county employee, or when the accident occurred as the result of a defective street light or streets that had not been properly maintained.
