Contributory Negligence in Motorcycle Accidents

Serious injury and wrongful death frequently result from motorcycle accidents.  The most dangerous motorcycle accidents occur when cars and trucks make left turns.  The motorist turning left who did not see the motorcycle is liable for the accident if the motorcyclist did not cause it.  Frequently, the motorist will blame the cyclist for the accident.  Contributory negligence on the part of the motorcyclist vindicates the unfortunate motorist who struck the motorcycle. 

Contributory Negligence

Excessive speed and alcohol is a factor in half of all motorcycle accidents.  Motorcycles do not cushion the impact of a collision like cars and trucks protect motorists.  One fourth of all fatal motorcycle accidents result from collisions with stationary objects.  Excessive speed or consumption of alcohol makes the cyclist partially liable for damages to the vehicle which struck him.  In some cases, the cyclist must pay for the damage to the car or truck, which hit him.
