Who Can I Sue in a One-Person Motorcycle Accident?

When you hear of motorcycle accidents, you might picture a motor vehicle running into the motorcycle rider. However, not every motorcycle accident will happen this way. In some cases, the rider may not be at-fault for their accident. You may ask the question: Who can I sue for my injuries?

Responsible Parties

Manufacturers: If any equipment on your motorcycle failed and caused you injury, a manufacturer, a dealer, or a mechanic may be held liable for your injuries. This will be brought as part of a product liability case. Your attorney can help you check your bike warranty, the tires, as well as your helmet. You can sue if it is determined that something was faulty. 

Government: Government entities have a responsibility to maintain highways and roads, which means that if they are not kept in safe condition, they may be held liable. Filing an accident claim against the government requires you to file a written claim within the statute of limitations, which is one of the main reasons why you will need an attorney on your side. They must also be aware of the dangerous condition before they can be held liable.

Another Party: Let’s say that the accident was your fault but somebody else made the injuries worse – you may have a lawsuit. If somebody left debris on the road, for instance, you may hold them liable for your damages.
