North Carolina and South Carolina Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Many factors contribute to motorcycle accidents. Sometimes, even the most experienced riders are faced with a danger that results in having to make an impulsive decision. Sometimes these decisions end up causing a motorcycle accident. Moreover, sometimes these accidents result in the rider hitting a stationary object. This type of motorcycle accident is known as a single-bike accident. Even though this type of crash only involves the motorcyclist, the rider may have some legal recourse.
Attorney Brian Steed Tatum has years of experience in helping North Carolina’s and South Carolina’s injured residents and their families in dealing with the devastating consequences of motorcycle accidents. His experience is put to work for all clients to ensure that they receive the compensation they deserve.
Single Bike Motorcycle Accidents
Single-bike accidents usually occur when a rider losses control of the bike or collides with a stationary object. It can be difficult to obtain compensation for injuries in this type of accident, but it is not impossible. There can be many causes of a single-bike collision, and during an accident investigation, it may be discovered that the single-bike accident was a result of another person’s negligent behavior.
Some causes of a single-bike collision include rider inexperience, motorcycle size, custom bikes, or faulty maintenance or equipment. Riders should always use safety techniques as these can help prevent accidents. The more experience a rider has, the more likely that this rider will react safely to dangers on the road. Unfortunately, if another motorist is not being an attentive driver, a motorcyclist may be in danger of a single-bike collision when trying to avoid a collision with the inattentive motorist.
Custom bikes and faulty maintenance or equipment can be a cause for certain types of single-bike accidents. Riders on custom bikes should take the time to get familiar with the maneuvering techniques that their bike can perform. However, if there is a faulty design with the custom bike, it can increase the likelihood of accidents. Also, riders should take the time to maintain their motorcycles. Equipment should be checked for wear and replaced as necessary. However, if a motorcyclist gets a bad maintenance job or a faulty repair, a motorcycle accident that results may be the fault of the mechanic. It is important to ensure that all repairs are made properly by a reputable mechanic to lessen the risk of faulty maintenance or equipment repairs.
