Understanding Motorcycle Accident Causes
Motorcycle accidents can occur for a multitude of reasons, ranging from driver negligence to adverse road conditions. Common causes include:
- Negligent Drivers: Many accidents are caused by the negligence of other drivers who fail to notice motorcycles or violate their right of way. Distracted driving, speeding, and failure to yield are often underlying factors.
- Road Conditions: Poorly maintained roads, potholes, debris, and slippery surfaces can significantly contribute to motorcycle accidents.
- Weather Conditions: Rain, snow, or fog can decrease visibility and make roads hazardous, increasing the risk of accidents.
- Inexperienced Riders: Inexperienced motorcyclists might struggle to handle unexpected situations, leading to accidents.
- Defective Equipment: Malfunctioning motorcycle parts, such as brakes or tires, can cause accidents due to sudden failures.
Liability in motorcycle accidents hinges on establishing who was at fault. This determination varies based on the jurisdiction's comparative negligence laws. Parties that could be held liable include:
- Other Drivers: If a driver's negligence led to the accident, they can be held responsible for the resulting damages.
- Government Entities: If poor road maintenance or hazardous conditions contributed to the accident, a government agency might share liability.
- Manufacturers: In cases of defective motorcycle parts, the manufacturer might be held accountable for the accident.
After a motorcycle accident, victims may be entitled to compensation for various losses, including:
- Medical Expenses: Coverage for medical bills, hospitalization, surgeries, medication, and rehabilitation.
- Property Damage: Compensation for repair or replacement of the damaged motorcycle and personal belongings.
- Lost Income: If injuries lead to missed work, victims can seek reimbursement for lost wages and potential earning capacity.
- Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages encompassing physical pain, emotional distress, and decreased quality of life.
- Wrongful Death: In fatal accidents, surviving family members may seek compensation through a wrongful death claim.

I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.
Mr. Brankamp turned a very scary, unknown legal matter into a situation we could calmly navigate through. He was polite but frank, fact finding yet empathetic. He really made us feel like he had our daughter's best interest. Even during a pandemic when we could not meet face to face, he was easy to communicate with and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.- Elisha Bound
