Proving Fault in Motorcycle Accidents

Denver Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorney

Motorcycle Accident Injury AttorneyProving fault in a motorcycle accident can sometimes be a tricky process. People who do not ride often accuse motorcycle riders of “coming out of nowhere” or “screaming down the road”. Our law firm knows that just because a motorcycle is loud doesn’t mean it is going fast. We also know that not seeing motorcycle riders is no excuse for colliding with them. Riders and drivers alike have a responsibility to be aware of the other vehicles around them.

Proving Fault in a Motorcycle Accident

To prove who was at fault for a motorcycle accident, our team will visit the accident scene, note the topography, collect and examine police reports, victim statements, witness statements, injury reports, consider weather factors, identify possible blind spots, determine the presence of drugs or alcohol, investigate the possibility of distracted drivers, note traffic congestion, and more. We use this information to create as detailed a picture possible of all the factors that lead to a collision. Just because someone says an accident was not their fault does not make it true. The proper collection and investigation of all the facts should produce the information needed to prove who was at fault.   

If possible, our team will also conduct a physical examine of the motorcycle and other vehicles involved to make sure there were no product defects or mechanical failures. We will also examine whether or not all items required by law were present, such as working lights, blinkers, and mirrors.

In most cases, to receive insurance payments that cover your expenses, you must prove that you were not responsible for the accident. You can be sure that an insurance company is not going to help you prove it is not responsible for your claim. They have attorneys working on their side. You should have one on yours. Our law firm will investigate your claim to the fullest and work hard to get you the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
