Motorcycle Accidents Are Not the Same As Car Accidents
A smart San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer knows that motorcycle accidents are not the same as car accidents. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in death than car accidents. Motorcycles don’t have seat belts, doors, or airbags (in most cases). The Vehicle Code also has special rules that govern motorcycles. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need more than just a personal injury attorney, you need a San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer.
Who Was At Fault In The Motorcycle Accident
The person at fault in a motorcycle accident is normally determined by who was operating their car or motorcycle in a negligent manner. Persons driving in cars do not own the road or automatically have the right of way. If you were injured by an individual who was negligently operating his or her car, contact a San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer to talk about your case.
What If the Motorcycle Rider Was Negligent
If the motorcycle rider was even partially negligent, there are many defenses that an automobile driver can raise. He or she might argue that the motorcycle driver contributed to their own injuries, or that the motorcycle driver was the actual cause of the injuries. Contact a San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer if you have questions about who is at fault, or who should be held liable.
