While most motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligent actions of a driver, there are instances where these accidents are the result of other factors such as a defective motorcycle. If your motorcycle accident was caused by the defective design or manufacture of your motorcycle, you may be entitled to receive compensation through a defective product lawsuit.
Motorcycle Product Defects
Defects in the following motorcycle parts may lead to a serious accident:
- Defective brakes
- Defective tires
- Accelerators that stick
- Defective fuel system
- Malfunctioning seats
Sometimes, defective safety equipment may increase the seriousness of your motorcycle accident injuries. If a defective helmet or other type of safety equipment has contributed to your injuries, the equipment manufacturer may be held liable for your damages as well.
Damages in Defective Motorcycle Claims
If you have been injured as a result of a defective motorcycle, you may be entitled to receive compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
