While most motorcyclists follow all safety protocols and the rules of the road, there are some who ride their bikes recklessly. Weaving in and out of traffic, speeding, and performing stunts, like wheelies, can put other drivers in danger.

How Do You Establish Fault in a Car Crash Involving a Motorcycle?
Motorcycle riders are often victims of car crashes because other drivers are negligent and do not take precautions to avoid collisions.
As mentioned above, there are times when the motorcycle rider is to blame. If a motorcycle rider is careless and participates in reckless behavior, they can cause major crashes.
As your legal team, our responsibility is to prove the motorcyclist is at fault for the crash. We will work to prove the rider caused your injuries and damages because of their reckless behavior.
We will work to establish liability and prove fault by reviewing the following pieces of evidence.
