Understanding Negligence in Motorcycle Accidents

Traffic accidents are inevitable. For motorcyclists, the risks can be even greater. Motorcycle operators typically lack the same protective features as other drivers on Indiana roads, such as metal frames and airbags found in cars, trucks, and buses, and negligence can result in serious injuries and fatalities. It’s important for motorists to protect their rights by holding responsible parties accountable for their actions. 

There are various parties can be held liable for injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents, such as: 

  • Negligent Drivers

    If the accident was caused by the careless or reckless actions of another motorist, such as distracted driving, speeding, or failure to yield, that motor vehicle operator may be held liable for any injuries sustained by the motorcyclist.

  • Vehicle Manufacturers

    If the accident was caused by a defect in the motorcycle's design or manufacturing, the manufacturer may be liable for the motorcycle accident due to faulty or malfunctioning parts.

  • Government Entities

    If the motorcycle accident was caused by hazardous road conditions, such as potholes, inadequate signage, or improper road maintenance, the government entity responsible for the road's upkeep may be held liable.

  • Parts Manufacturers

    If a specific component of the motorcycle (such as the brakes or tires) failed and caused the accident, the manufacturer of that particular part may be held accountable.

  • Intoxicated Drivers

    If the accident was caused by a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may be held liable for the injuries sustained.

  • Employers

    If the at-fault driver was operating a motorcycle as part of their employment duties at the time of the accident, their employer may be held liable under certain circumstances.

  • Third-Party Individuals or Entities

    Other individuals or entities, such as passengers, pedestrians, or road construction companies, may also be held liable if their actions or negligence contributed to the accident.
