Motorcycles lack crashworthiness and occupant protection. Unlike a car, a motorcycle is lightweight; it has no door, no roof, no airbags, and no safety belts. A motorcycle is less stable than a car because it only has two wheels. Although several factors can contribute to a motorcycle accident, especially operator inexperience and failure to appreciate the limitations of a motorcycle, a defect in a motorcycle's design or manufacture should be considered as a potential cause of an accident, especially one where only the motorcycle driver is involved.
As experienced personal injury attorneys we are familiar with any relevant product liability issues and, potentially, recalls of certain motorcycle models, and can help determine whether you have a claim against the motorcycle manufacturer.
