ISSUES CONCERNING MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
In many cases, the driver responsible for the accident may deny that they are liable. The driver may assert that the motorcycle driver was fully or partially at fault. Also, many motorcycle accidents involve debris on the roadway or circumstances where the motorcycle driver has to lay his or her bike down to avoid an accident. In these circumstances, there may not be any information regarding the identity of the persons responsible for the debris in the road or responsible for causing you to lay your bike down.
