One of the first questions that needs to be answered in any personal injury case, including motorcycle accident claims, is: Who was responsible? Who is liable for the damages?
In many cases, the answer is straightforward, at least it seems that way. The negligent driver who hit the motorcyclist is the liable party. But what if there was no physical contact made? What if there are other parties responsible in addition to the negligent driver?
No-Contact Motorcycle Accident Claims
It is not uncommon for motorcycle accidents to involve no physical contact with another vehicle. However, that does not mean that the negligent driver of another vehicle was not responsible. If the motorcycle rider was forced to drive off the road or to lay the bike down in order to avoid a collision with a negligent driver who had driven into the motorcyclist's path, the negligent driver may still be liable. At the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, our Ohio and northern Kentucky motorcycle accident liability attorneys know how to get results in these complex cases.
The Importance Of Motorcycle Accident Investigation
We always conduct a thorough investigation. In part, this is to determine whether other parties may be liable besides the negligent driver. Was there a defective product involved? Perhaps the road was under construction and that played a role in the collision. We will find all liable parties and see that they are held accountable.
