Types of Defective Motorcycle Accidents in Mercer County NJ
An unsafe tire can cause severe injuries when the motorcycle driver loses control of their bike as the result of a tire blowout. In fact, many single-vehicle motorcycle accidents are caused by misalignment of the tires. When the tires are not properly aligned, the front end of the motorcycle can begin to shake or wobble. If the motorcycle begins to shake while being driven at an extremely high speed, the driver can easily lose control of the bike.
Other common motorcycle defects include brake failure and a stalled engine. If a defective motorcycle part caused your motorcycle accident, you might need to file a product liability claim in order to get compensation for your injuries.
Liability for Defective Motorcycles in Lawrence NJ
Motorcycle manufacturers need to be held responsible for defective products because lives are literally at risk when an unsafe motorcycle is manufactured and sold to the general public. Generally speaking, manufacturers of any product owe a legal responsibility to direct users of the product and any reasonably foreseeable users of the product. Motorcycle manufacturers have a legal responsibility to provide safe products to consumers. Additionally, when a manufacturer detects a design defect, they need to recall the product so that the defect can be fixed. This also means that the manufacturer needs to notify consumers, in the form of a public report, about the recall.
Securing Compensation for Defective Motorcycle Accidents in Trenton New Jersey
If your motorcycle accident was caused by a design defect or a manufacturing defect, you need to consider filing a claim for damages against all potentially liable parties. Depending upon the circumstances of your accident, you can potentially sue the manufacturer of the motorcycle or the manufacturer of the parts used on the motorcycle. You might also be able to sue the retailer. If a motorcycle part was recalled, the retailer who sold you the part might be liable.
Unfortunately, product liability claims are incredibly complex and difficult to pursue. It is important to have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side because motorcycle accidents present unique legal issues. Your attorney should be educated on the engineering and technology of motorcycles so that they can accurately assess the role that the vehicle’s safety features played in the accident.
