Arizona Car Accident Attorney: Handling your Motorcycle Accidents, Too

An Arizona car accident attorney, who doesn’t regularly handle motorcycle cases, sometimes overlooks the special legal requirements of these cases.

The most critical issue from the perspective of an Arizona car accident attorney is the determination of fault. In any traffic accident, there may be one or many causes. Arizona uses a “comparative fault” rule to apportion fault, which means that each party judged to have contributed to the accident (including the victim in some cases) will be required to accept a percentage of liability for the harm done.

ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED ON YOUR CASE-

Example: A single victim sues a single wrongdoer for an injury claim valued at $1,000. If the jury believes the wrongdoer was 75% responsible for the collision and the victim’s injuries, the comparative fault rule would award the plaintiff $750.  An experienced Arizona Car Accident Attorney will know the best argument to make to establish liability for the victims of a motorcycle collision.

An Arizona car accident attorney is aware of the inherent case differences between a motorcycle and a more traditional four wheel vehicle. While nearly every car on the road is required to have safety features such as seat belts, motorcycles typically have no such devices. It’s an obvious fact, but the legal implications can be difficult. Can you sue the motorcycle manufacturer for failing to include a safety device that would have prevented your injury?

What about the dealer, if the construction was faulty? Does YOUR degree of knowledge at the time of purchase make a difference? Because these and many other questions arise in each and every case, motorcycle accident victims need an experienced Arizona car accident attorney.

Also, keep in mind the human element of motorcycle accident victims. Many bikers ride recreationally and may have auto insurance policies that don’t cover motorcycles. This makes the presence of an experienced Arizona car accident attorney even more important. How do you go about pursuing the other driver’s insurance company? What if there is no insurance?  What if my case has to go to trial? †Is my attorney an experienced trial lawyer? If you’ve been injured, you can’t afford to have even one or two jurors in your case think you caused the accident because of prejudice against bikers.
