TAKING LEGAL ACTION AFTER A NORTH CAROLINA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
North Carolina Traffic Crash Facts show around 4,000 motorcyclists get hurt in accidents in the state each year.
Every one of the victims involved in a motorcycle accident should determine the cause of the crash. If a driver is to blame for hitting your motorcycle or causing the wreck, the driver can be held legally liable.
Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents where a driver may be to blame for causing the wreck include:
- Accidents with distracted, intoxicated or fatigued drivers who didn’t see or stop for the motorcycle
- Accidents caused by drivers who are speeding and who lose control of their vehicle or who are unable to stop in time before hitting a motorcyclist
- Accidents resulting from drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcycle riders when the rules of the road require them to yield
- Motorcycle crashes resulting from drivers who misjudge the speed of a motorcyclist or who do not accurately judge the distance between their car and the motorcycle
- Crashes caused by drivers who don’t see a motorcycle rider
- Accidents caused by tailgating drivers
In these and other situations, the key question for victims is whether the driver was unreasonably careless or whether the driver broke any safety rules. A driver who was negligent or who violated the rules of the road can be sued by victims for losses caused by the crash. A North Carolina motorcycle accident attorney can help.
