Motorcycle accidents usually occur when a negligent car, truck or bus drivers fail to see a motorcycle at an intersection or in the lane next to them. As a result, it isn’t uncommon for a car driver to claim it was the motorcycle rider who bears the responsibility for causing an accident. Since insurance companies will attempt to shift blame to reduce or avoid paying damages, it’s important to retain legal representation to both protect your rights and begin an investigation into the cause of your accident.
