Who May Be Liable for a Motorcycle Accident in San Diego?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 82,686 motorcyclists were injured in the U.S. in 2021. These accidents can occur for many reasons, including reckless driving, poor road conditions, and defective parts. However, knowing whose negligence caused the accident can be challenging. Our seasoned San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers conduct a detailed investigation to gather evidence and identify a liable party, which may include the following:

  • Another driver: Another car or truck driver may be liable for your motorcycle accident and injuries if they drove recklessly, failed to follow traffic laws, or drove under the influence.
  • Manufacturer: If a defective part caused your motorcycle accident, the manufacturer may be responsible.
  • Pedestrian or bicyclist: Just like drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists must follow traffic laws and uphold their duty of care. If they fail to do this and do not give you or another driver enough time to stop, they may be liable.
  • Property owner or government agency: Property owners and government agencies are responsible for maintaining their roads, so if they fail to do this and poor road conditions cause the accident, they may be held accountable.

Once we have identified a liable party, we gather and analyze evidence, like medical records, police reports, video footage, and witness testimony, to prove they neglected their duty of care and directly caused the accident, your injuries, and other damages.
