Motorcycle accidents in Broward County and other parts of the world usually don’t end well. Injuries are usually severe or deadly. Florida residents who have sustained a serious injury, or even wrongful death of a loved one, from a Broward County motorcycle accident, are keenly aware of the devastating effects of making a mistake.
When police officers arrive on the scene of a motorcycle accident, they are most likely to write a report that assumes that the motorcyclist is to blame. But, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), many motorcycle accidents occur because the motorcycle was improperly manufactured and has defective parts. Even the largest motorcycle manufacturers, such as Harley-Davidson, Honda, BMW, Yamaha, and Kawasaki have made mistakes, leading to huge recalls.
Examples of defective motorcycle parts:
- Defective motorcycle rear tires- cause drivers to lose stability
- Defective motorcycle handlebars-cause drivers to lose control
- Defective motorcycle fuel lines- cause fires, injury, death
In the case that a motorcycle is made with certain defects, the federal law does hold the company responsible to remedy the problem. It’s hard to imagine that a manufacturer would not muster up the courage necessary to own their production mistake, especially when the risk could be fatal.
Some people who are injured from a motorcycle accident don’t realize that compensation is often their legal right. It is important to contact an experienced Broward County motorcycle accident attorney who can review your case. If you have sustained a motorcycle accident injury, you may be eligible for financial and personal recovery from your devastating loss.
