Who is at Fault in a Motorcycle Accident?
To determine who is at fault in a motorcycle accident, there needs to be a full and independent investigation. If the car driver did not see the motorcycle, failed to check the blind spot or drove through an intersection without looking, the motorcyclist will likely be the one who suffers serious personal injury as a result. In this video, motorcycle accident attorney Fredric Eisenberg explains how his Philadelphia law firm investigates these types of wrecks.
The most important thing when we initially get a motorcycle case is getting an accident reconstructionist out to the site immediately to figure out what happened. Who did what wrong? How did the accident occur? So, we immediately preserve all the evidence. We preserve the motorcycle and we preserve the striking vehicle. We also hire very, very top notch experts so that they can recreate a scene and figure out who did what wrong. When a motorcycle driver gets into an accident, it’s almost always catastrophic. The injuries are horrible and they’re lucky to survive. So, our job is to piece together the evidence, to preserve it, and to recreate the scene.
