Any stationary object along the roadways can present a hazard to motorcycle riders. When objects are not clearly marked or placed in the road in a haphazard way, it can have disastrous consequences, especially for motorcycle riders. These types of hazards may include:
- Cones and roadway equipment
- Construction signs
- Telephone and light poles
- Disabled vehicles
Another common hazard is called dooring. This happens when the occupant of a vehicle parked on the side of the road opens their door without checking to see if anyone is coming. Like bicycle riders, motorcyclists can collide with vehicle doors when they are opened into the rider’s path, often with tragic results.
In an accident involving more than one vehicle, a negligent driver may be held accountable for injuries sustained by others. But what do you do if you were in accident that doesn’t involve another driver? When it comes to determining liability for a motorcycle crash with a stationary object, negligent parties may include whoever is responsible for the misplaced object, including state, county, or municipal government officials who are in charge of maintaining a safe roadway.
These agencies will enlist teams of attorneys to defend against a claim. That’s why you will want to find a personal injury attorney who has the resources and experience to take on a large organization. Our Phoenix personal injury lawyers will gather evidence, build a strong case, negotiate skillfully on your behalf, and fight for your rights in court if necessary.
Our personal injury attorneys will investigate the accident to determine who was responsible. Then we will calculate the damage and file claims against all negligent parties. Legal compensation may include the costs you incurred as a result of the accident, such as:
- Ambulance transport
- Doctor’s office visits
- Reduced earning potential
- Lost wages
According to the laws of physics, an object in motion tends to remain in motion. When a motorcycle collides with a stationary object, the rider can be thrown violently from the bike and suffer serious injuries, or even be fatally injured. The rider may also collide with and rebound off the fixed object struck by the bike.
These types of accidents can cause severe and catastrophic injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
- Loss of limb
- Nerve damage
- Road rash
- Fractured bones
- Spinal compression
- Facial fractures and disfigurement
- Wrongful death
