Are you in need of a motorcycle accident lawyer? Motorcycle owners know that there is something irresistible about the community, lifestyle, and thrill a motorcycle offers. However, all motorcycle owners are also all too aware that these advantages do not come without significant risks.

- Following the motorcyclist excessively closely, or “tailgating”
- Failing to yield the right of way to the motorcyclist
- Trying to pass the motorcyclist too closely or “share” a lane
- Taking deliberate action to dominate and intimidate the motorcyclist.
If any of these incidents led to your or your motorcycle’s injury in a crash, you have the right to the restitution that is due to you by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault vehicle owner.

Many of these circumstances are avoidable. Motorcyclists know that the delicacy of control required to steer their vehicle means that unsafe road conditions can spell hazard. If a road is improperly maintained during treacherous weather conditions, and it can be proven that a government entity knew of the conditions and failed to respond, that entity can be held responsible for the crash. Other times, crashes may be instantiated by a faulty gear, brake, or tire on the motorcycle itself. In these cases, the manufacturer holds the blame and should be held liable. Other times, it is the motorcyclist who is at fault. In these cases, passengers on the motorcycle who have been injured are entitled to take legal action to preserve their rights and claim compensation.
