While riding motorcycles is an exciting past time and a wonderful way to see the great beauty of America, motorcycle accidents resulting from the negligence of other drivers or faulty design or manufacturing of the motorcycle can cause serious injuries to riders and leave long lasting physical and emotional scars for riders and their families.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), 4,465 people were killed in motorcycle accidents in 2009, while thousands of other riders were seriously injured in accidents.
At The Gilbert Law Group, we regularly represent injured individuals and family members of those killed or injured in auto and motorcycle accidents. In addition to representing victims of motorcycle accidents, our recent cases have included single vehicle crashes, including rollovers, multiple vehicle collisions, vehicle fires, seatback failures, seat belt defects, and accidents involving trailers.
In addition to holding accountable any negligent drivers who may have caused the accident which hurt your loved one, the Gilbert Law Group will also investigate your case to identify other possible causes of the accident. For example, the motorcycle manufacturer or mechanics shop that maintains the motorcycle could be liable for producing or installing defective parts which may have contributed to the accident.
Manufacturers have a legal duty to riders to produce and install safe products that do not present a safety risk to riders, while mechanics have an obligation to identify and replace defective or worn out parts which may present a threat to riders. Depending on the circumstances and the state, the retailer who sold the motorcycle may be liable for selling a defective and dangerous product.
Component part failures from defective design and production can present extreme hazards to riders when parts fail during a ride, as recent national parts recalls indicate. It is important that injured riders know all the facts of their case to identify the responsible parties and protect future riders from similar safety hazards.
