Motorcycle Accident Overview (Part B)

  • Speed wobble - when driving at high speeds, the front wheel of a motorcycle may become unstable and begin to wobble or shake. This may be caused by a misalignment of the tires, and can lead to potentially deadly motorcycle accident.
  • Poor riding skills - Riding a motorcycle takes practice, skill and physical coordination. But despite this, many riders choose to ride without the proper training. In fact, a high percentage of motorcycle accidents are due to the rider's lack of skills, and failure to appreciate the inherent dangers of riding a motorcycle. It is needless to say that there will be a good number of inexperienced riders on the highways this Labor Day weekend. 

Determining Liability in A Philadelphia Motorcycle Accident

There are a number of scenarios that can lead to a Philadelphia motorcycle accident. Apart from those mentioned above, a motorcycle accident may be caused by the negligence of another driver, by poor engineering or manufacturing, or because someone was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Depending on the causes of a motorcycle accident, an injured rider may be eligible for compensation for their medical bills and other expenses
. If, for instance, a Labor Day motorcycle accident occurs due to a manufacturer defect on the motorcycle itself, then the manufacturer may be held financially liable.

If a collision occurs because the other vehicle's driver was under the influence of alcohol or other forms of driving negligence, then that driver may also be liable for the damages they caused.  

Personal injury claims that result from motorcycle accidents may ask for damages including: 

  • Medical expenses;
  • Property  damage;
  • Any pain or suffering that was caused, and
  • The loss of past, present, or future wages.
