How Contributory Negligence May Affect Your Claim
Establishing fault in a motorcycle accident can make or break your case. North Carolina follows a pure contributory negligence rule, which means that if an accident victim is found even 1% at fault for the crash, they are barred from receiving compensation in personal injury lawsuit.
You can still recover compensation from your own insurance policy, but that may not be enough to cover all your expenses. Our experienced North Carolina motorcycle accident lawyers have a clear understanding of the law and which defenses can protect our clients' right to financial recovery. By discussing your case in a free consultation we can help you better understand your rights and what steps you can take after a motorcycle accident.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
At Lanier Law Group, our motorcycle injury lawyers have extensive experience assisting riders who have been involved in all types of motorcycle accidents. We understand the common causes of these accidents, as well as how to investigate your case and determine who is liable for your injuries and other damages.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in North Carolina include:
- Tailgating: One of the most dangerous things a driver can do is to tailgate a motorcyclist. If the rider stops for any reason, the tailgating driver may slam into the back of the bike and cause serious injury or death.
- Road defects: For motorcyclists in North Carolina, potholes, uneven pavement, and other road defects can be perilous.
- Improper lane changes: If a driver performs an improper lane change or does not realize a rider is in the car’s blind spot, the car may collide with the motorcycle.
- Distracted drivers: Texting, talking on the phone, or fiddling with a GPS device can divert a driver’s attention from the road and cause him/her to crash into a motorcycle.
