“In case of a motorcycle collision, a rider is most likely to suffer catastrophic injuries”, says Mark Shayani, an experienced law firm attorney and managing attorney at Pacific Attorney Group.
Motorcycle crashes can cause injuries ranging from minor to severe degree or even death. Motorcyclists have less protection and thus motorists should be more cautious. Liability for motorbike accidents is based on negligence and the riders are also to blame at times. Distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving and failure to observe traffic laws are some of the causes of these traffic collisions.
While it is unclear in this incident which party is at fault, Shayani points out that it is important that the victims conduct an independent investigation to determine the cause of the crash. The investigation will collect more details including witness statements to determine the factors that led to the incident.
