Negligent Motorists Are Responsible for The Injuries They Cause
If another driver caused the motorcycle accident that leads to your injury, they may be liable for the losses that you incur in the form of damages. In general, motorists are obligated to drive their vehicles in a way that keeps others safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Our Scottsdale car accident attorneys understand what to look for when a motorcyclist is struck by a careless or negligent motorist.
Common driver activities that make them liable for your motorcycle accident include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Drowsy or fatigued driving
- Vehicle or equipment malfunctions
Inattentive or careless drivers routinely fail to notice motorcycles and merge into them, cut them off, or act in other ways that force them to maneuver away. Sometimes, however, riders cannot avoid the other vehicle and are struck or thrown from their bikes. When this occurs riders are often catastrophically injured, especially when the vehicles are traveling at highway speeds.
However, if another driver was responsible, all of your losses may be compensable. This includes past and future medical expenses, lost wages and reduced earning capacity, disfigurement, pain and suffering, property damage, and more depending upon the circumstances.
