When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, there is a significant chance that injuries may occur. In some situations, injured persons may have a claim to recover money damages. The injury attorneys in Provo at Howard Lewis & Petersen can help determine if you have a claim.
When will a motorcycle accident give rise to a case?
When a motorcyclist is injured as a result of another driver’s negligent or careless behavior, then you could hold the other party liable for the damages and injuries you sustain. Some examples of driving behavior that could be considered negligent includes:
- Following too closely
- Failure to yield
- Improper lane change
- Disobeying traffic lights and signs
- Inattentive driving
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
- Texting while driving
