Rear-end motorcycle collisions can lead to extremely serious injuries and even death. Often, the bumper of a car strikes the wheel of the motorcycle, causing both the bike and rider to become airborne.
Whether you can file a personal injury claim following a rear-end motorcycle accident depends on each individual case; it’s best to consult with an Orange County motorcycle accident attorney. In general, the person who strikes the back of the other vehicle is responsible for a rear-end accident. However, in some cases, more than one driver or rider could be at fault.
In addition, another person or entity could be responsible for the accident. For example, the crash may have been caused by poor road design, a substance or hazard in the road, poor weather, or a mechanical error.
Even if you were partially at fault for your motorcycle accident and injury, you may be able to recover partial compensation for your medical bills and other damages, such as lost wages and pain and suffering.
