Motorcycle Accident Questions

A motorcycle accident injury can be very difficult to recover from and cope with. It can also lead to a lot of expenses in the form of medical expenses and repair to the vehicle. All of this can be even more frustrating if the accident was caused due to another person’s fault. Not knowing if one can sue an at fault party in a motorcycle accident or claim insurance from the other party can add to all the frustration. It may not be easy sometimes to find information on what rights an individual may have in a motorcycle accident. Given below are common questions asked about an individual’s legal rights in a motorcycle accident.

What would a legal guardian’s liability be if his/her son’s motorcycle is involved in an accident?

If the individual who owns the motorcycle did not have a license, then the legal guardian would not have any liability if the individual’s motorcycle is involved in an accident. This is because the legal guardian would not have signed the individual’s license to be responsible for anything.

What factors would be considered when deciding the average amount to be paid to an individual in a motorcycle accident?

There may be a number of factors that may be taken into consideration when calculating the amount of money to be paid to an individual in a motorcycle accident. Some of these factors may include the medical bills of the individual after the accident, if there has been any loss in the individual’s wages as a result of the accident and any pain and suffering that the individual may have had to go through as a result of the accident.

Can an individual sue the owner of a property if his/her motorcycle accident is caused due to sand and gravel from the owner’s driveway that may have spilled over the road?

In most situations, the individual may not be able to sue the owner of a property if he/she had a motorcycle accident due to slipping over sand and gravel that was spilled onto the road from the property owner’s driveway. This is because it may not be considered to be negligence on the property owner’s part if the sand and gravel from his/her driveway spilled over onto the road. The individual may be able to sue the property owner if he/she is able to prove that the property owner had a “duty of care” to keep the roadway free from anything that may be dangerous to the drivers and he/she failed in that duty. However, most of the times, the property owners may not have that duty and most jurisdictions may not consider gravel dangerous. Hence, the individual may not be able to sue the property owner for medical expenses.

What is the statute of limitations to file a suit against an at fault driver in a motorcycle accident?

The statute of limitations to file a lawsuit against an at fault driver in a motorcycle accident may differ in different jurisdictions of United States. In some states like Florida, the statute of limitations to file a suit against an at fault driver is 4 years from the accident date.

What can an individual, who has been disabled in a motorcycle accident do if the at fault party’s insurance is not enough to pay for his/her medical bills?

If an at fault party’s auto insurance is not enough to pay for a disabled person’s medical bills in a motorcycle accident, he/she may also collect the medical expenses from his/her uninsured motorists coverage. However, he/she may only be able to get an amount that is within the policy limits under the uninsured motorists’ coverage. If that amount is also not enough, the individual may file for disability.

It may not be practical for you to hire an attorney just to get information about your rights and obligations in a motorcycle accident. Trying to find information about your legal rights in the wake of a motorcycle accident on your own may leave you feeling lost and helpless. It is best to seek the help of an Expert who can answer your various questions about motorcycle accidents in such a situation.

  • Hello, I live in New Jersey and injured my shoulder on the

    Hello, I live in New Jersey and injured my shoulder on the job. I have a workerscomp lawyer but that's all he does. I'll try to keep it short. I was injured on 11/28/11. didn't get surgery till 11/26/12 I have been complaining of pain still to this day. the case settled & I was able to re-open my case because I proved with a MRI done of my shoulder which proved I wasn't lying and there's a 5mm tear on top of where a supposedly 7mm tear was fixed! It also showed some other damage " a small rounded area of sclerosis in the glenoid which could represent a bone island " that wasn't there before. The Insurance company sent me back to the treating Doctor who admitted and has it in his report that he forgot to do a follow-up with my neck and even said that I originally complained of neck pain and that it's related to my case. he performed a test of my head and neck and feels there may be some spine damage and suggests a plan of treatment and suggests for workercomp to get me a MRI of my neck. Because of this I have never been able to return to work as a Heavy Equipment Operator / Truck driver. So my question is do I have a malpractice case or what for loss income, Pain and suffering? anything? Thank you for your Time.
  • Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over

    Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over completely to the shoulder of the road and got out of his car. While out of the car, another vehicle ran off the road, into the victim's car, and totalled it. Since the victim was not in the car at the time of the collision, he thankfully did not sustain any inThe victim only had liability insurance, not collision. After more than 2 months, the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident informed the victim that the specific car that ran into the victim's car was not insured - that the owner had not registered his newly purchased car. They suggested that the victim personally go after the person who caused the accident. Til now (11 weeks) there has been no compensation at all for the damaged car, for arranging alternate transportation, etc. A laptop computer and stroller were damaged beyond repair as a result of the accident. Best way to get this settled, please?
  • 4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making

    4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making a right turn out into a busy***** I had a stop sign and bicyclist ran his because he was looking down, had iPod on and dark sunglasses. I saw him and abruptly stopped but he tried to slow down with his foot to brake and ended up at my front grill holding himself up. I had completely stopped before he passed in front of me. Joggers, walker and bicyclists do this all day everyday at this same crossway in front of my subdivision. He refused help, ambulance 911 etc. He said he was fine and just wanted to get to work because he was on his lunch break and exercising his leg because the previous yr he had a motorcycle accident. Long story short he decided then to call for what he says is medical insurance and proceeds to call 911 but doesn't want to go to hospital. The police take him home and several months later I get a lawsuit from an attorney in a personal injury firm that cranks out suits all day long. I find out the bicyclist has a history of 7 arrests including reckless driving, controlled substance etc. Never convicted and all thrown out of court. His father seems to know people. There have been a lot of bicyclists death around the city so he is after money. I was going maybe 5 miles and hour and abruptly stopped before her crossed going across. The sidewalk crosses really close to the driveway and is also very close to the highway traffic. He has made up this story that I hit him and threw him into the street. My attorney took his deposition 2 months ago and said he rambled like crazy and was say it was his wrist that was hurt. I have never been sued and I am very upset with all this. It has taken 4 yrs for the out of town attorney to travel here. They come off and on to crank out cases. They have asked me maybe 3 times to be deposed and I couldn't due to the fact that I was out of town. Next week I m being deposed and I am very upset that I am drug through this. I don't want to go to trial. Is that the next step after i am deposed and they try to run me over the coals and make me feel say something to make it look like it was my fault? They did not request a video just a court reporter
