Liability in Motorcycle Collisions
If another party’s negligence caused your motorcycle collision, they may be legally liable for your damages under New York’s personal injury laws. Proving liability in a personal injury case typically means producing evidence of the following:
- The other party owed you a duty of care, such as sharing the road according to New York’s traffic laws.
- They breached this duty of care by breaking a traffic law, such as running a red light.
- This breach of duty caused your crash and injuries.
- This negligent act and outcome caused you damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Potentially Liable Parties
Although many motorcycle crash cases come down to another driver’s negligence causing a collision, drivers are not the only parties that could be liable. Consider:
- A negligent motorcycle manufacturer who releases a bike with a defective design or construction flaw, which causes it to malfunction and crash.
- A negligent mechanic who fails to install a safety system correctly, such as a vehicle’s brakes.
- A negligent municipality that fails to provide proper signage or causes hazards in the road that can cause a motorcyclist to crash.
- A negligent trucking company that fails to properly secure the cargo on their vehicle, causing it to spill onto the road and create a hazard.
When a motorcycle accident lawyer serving Babylon from Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. represents you, we can investigate your collision to determine whose negligence may have caused your injuries.
