Why investigations are crucial in motorcycle accidents

In our last post, we highlighted simple, yet important things that motorcycle riders could do to avoid accidents during the holiday weekend, as the Fourth of July is widely known as a dangerous time to be on the road. While there have not been any major reports of motorcycle crashes over the holiday weekend, it is important to conduct thorough investigations when they do occur.

While it may seem obvious to conduct an inquiry into the cause of the crash, some investigations may miss critical details that go towards determining fault. This is especially important in motorcycle accident cases because of the common notion that riders are at fault when involved in a crash with a car. In essence, jurors may be quick to believe that the rider was speeding or was not following the law because of the images of riders being wildly independent, and even radical. 

Nevertheless, a thorough investigation can reveal a number of things that could help an accident victim. First, it can help to determine if any mechanical problems contributed to the crash. If a car failed to stop, inquiries about the car’s braking system would be helpful in finding whether a mechanical problem with the car caused the crash. On the same token, discovering whether a similar problem with the motorcycle led to the accident would also be important.

With the critical nature of these questions, it is essential that complete investigations be undertaken so that the true culprits can be held accountable. A skilled personal injury attorney can advise you on accident investigations.

The preceding is not intended to be legal advice.
