Determining Liability in Your Accident
To win your motorcycle accident case, you must establish who is responsible for the auto part malfunction. However, identifying the liable party is not always easy and requires an extensive investigation. The negligent parties in a motorcycle accident may include the:
The manufacturer is responsible for designing and building the auto part. Any flaws in the design or during construction can lead to a malfunction. If your crash was due to poor design, then the manufacturer is responsible for your accident.
A distribution or trucking company is responsible for making sure the products they ship are in a rideable condition. They must also guarantee that the products are safe when in transit. If they fail to provide safe transportation for the product, they may damage a part.
An inspector may assess the motorcycles at any point in the supply chain, from manufacturing to retail. If the inspector overlooks a problem and approves the product, they may be responsible for your accident.
All retail companies should inspect every motorcycle that comes into their stores before selling them to the public. They are the last line of defense against a potential accident. If a retailer either knowingly or unknowingly sells a defective product, they may share in the liability when you have an accident.

Evidence You Need to Prove Your Personal Injury Case
When filing a claim for your injuries and other damages (“the sum of money the law imposes for a breach of some duty or violation of some right,” according to the Legal Information Institute (LII)), you cannot assume that the insurance company will accept your claim or offer a fair settlement. As your attorneys, we can gather evidence that clearly establishes who caused your accident and how much your case is worth.
Evidence that can support your case and help us determine the value of your claim may include:
- The accident/police report
- Manufacturer documents
- Medical records and bills
- Photographs and videos
- Testimonies from accident eyewitness and expert witnesses
- Employment records
Our law firm can review the evidence to build your case and submit your claim to the insurance company. Make sure you keep careful records and document everything related to your case. Your lawyer will need all information to support and verify your story.
Potentially Recoverable Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Case
How much is your motorcycle accident case worth? The value of your claim depends on several factors, such as who was involved, how the accident occurred, and the extent of your damages. Your personal injury damages may include the following:
Economic damages are calculable losses based on hard numbers. For instance, we can look at your medical expenses, lost income, disability, or projected future losses to come up with a tangible figure. Economic damages may make up the majority of your financial award. Therefore, it is important that we have all documents and information to add to your claim.
Noneconomic damages are not calculable, but we can estimate the value of your claim based on the extent of your physical and emotional suffering. We can also explore how the accident affected your life and your family, to determine what you can claim.
Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. can fight for the fair compensation based on the sum of your losses. Instead of accepting the insurance company’s initial offer, speak with us. We can help you decide what your case is worth.
