Motorcycle accidents can happen at any time, for any number of reasons. Many of these are the fault of other drivers, especially in cases where negligence or inattention led them to jump a lane or cut you off. Other accidents can happen as a result of defective products, including brakes that fail and tires that give way at a catastrophic moment. But a sizable percentage of motorcycle crashes occur through no fault of anyone on the road at that time; instead, they may be attributed to the road itself.
Filing a Public Entity Tort Claim
If your motorcycle accident was caused by a road hazard, you may be entitled to compensation from the municipality or other public entity responsible for area's road maintenance. However, you must file a "Notice of Claim" against the responsible public entity within 180 calendar days from the date of the accident. Also, you must file a lawsuit within one year. If you fail to comply with either deadline, your right to file a claim will be lost forever. So get started on your claim case by consulting with a reliable motorcycle crash attorney in Phoenix as soon as possible.
Road Hazards for Motorcycles
Hazardous roadway conditions come in several forms, any one of which can be deadly under the right circumstances. Some of the most common culprits in a crash are poor design and planning. For example:
- If a difficult turn or stretch of road is not properly lit, it could contribute to a motorcycle accident due to low visibility.
- Likewise, if there are no warning signs leading up to a dangerous turn, dip, construction zone or some other hazardous road condition, a motorcyclist could fail to react to the obstacle in time and get into a serious accident.
Hazardous roadway conditions may also occur because of time-sensitive conditions, including inclement weather. The dangers of snow, ice and standing water can be significantly amplified on expansion joints, edge breaks and other road features susceptible to slickness from wetness and debris.
