Sometimes drivers don’t see motorcycles on the road. This can happen because the motorcyclist is in their blind spot, because of bad weather or because the driver is looking down at their phone. Too often motorists merge without taking into consideration the rider. Regardless of the reason, the injured party has the right to be compensated for their injuries, time off work and their pain and suffering.
Even skilled motorcyclists can’t prevent a terrible crash if a car doesn’t see them. More often then not it is the drivers in the big cars or trucks that are liable for the accident but their insurance companies may not want to accept liability. It is important from the onset that all the evidence is gathered including video from trucking companies, nearby cameras or speaking with witnesses to ensure that the injured rider is not blamed for the accident.
