Is a car responsible for my motorcycle accident?

Driving a motorcycle can be a fun and adrenaline-fuelled activity, with many enthusiasts choosing to ride their motorcycle on sunny weekend days. However, it is also a dangerous sport that claims many lives each year.

If you have been involved in an accident while you were riding a motorcycle, it is likely that you have suffered significant injuries and that your motorcycle sustained damage. You may also be confused as to who is at fault when it comes to the accident. It is a good idea, therefore, to read about how the law works in relation to your accident, so that you know how to proceed.

What is the best course of action after being involved in a motorcycle accident?

It is important that you do not make any statements to others involved in the accident about who you think was at fault. Only a legal professional or insurance company would be able to make a determination of this. Furthermore, admitting fault at the scene could be very damaging to any claim that you may have.

Can I still make a negligence claim if I was not wearing a helmet?

Not wearing a helmet on a motorcycle might be unwise, but it should never prevent you from making a claim against a driver if the other driver was negligent or reckless.

If you have been involved in an accident while on your motorcycle, it is a good idea not to jump to any conclusions about what the legal outcome might be. Make sure that you consider your legal options and stand up for your right to damages.
