You have the right to sue anybody that’s at fault for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, this includes companies as well. This is legally defined as direct and proximate cause of the injuries that you sustained. Quite often but not always, this will mean that the drive that’s responsible for your injuries had violated one or more traffic violations, including:
- Disregard of a Stop Sign or Stoplight
- Rear Ending You
- Making an Unsafe Lane Change in Traffic
- Not Looking Out For You for Many Other Types of Reasons
- Failure to Yield the Right Of Way
This can also include a lawsuit to sue the vehicle owner in certain cases if permission has been given for the other person to drive. If the responsible party was impaired or intoxicated, the lawsuit could also include the establishment and/or person that served the liquor. If your injuries were sustained due to a defective motorcycle part or motorcycle, you have the right to sue the motorcycle manufacturer that was responsible for the manufacturing of the defective motorcycle or part. Additionally, if the roads were unsafe and caused your motorcycle accident they can be held liable for the unsafe road conditions.
