Determining who is at fault in a motorcycle accident can be challenging. Having an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer on your side is essential to help determine who is at fault. For example, you can sometimes lose control of your motorbike due to a manufacturing defect. The motorcycle’s front and rear tires must be aligned correctly in order to make the front end stable at high speeds and to avoid wobbling. If this high-speed wobble causes an accident, whether caused by poor manufacturing or negligent work done by a repair shop, those parties may be liable for injuries and damages. If you find yourself injured due to someone else’s negligence, our San Antonio personal injury attorneys are ready to help you.
