4 Important Things To Know About: Accidents Caused by Cars Turning Left in Front of Motorcycles and Bicycles
Personal Injury in Arizona
As personal injury lawyers in Arizona, we’ve seen many car accidents repeat themselves. One common accident happens when a car turns left directly in front of a bike or motorcycle, cutting them off and causing an accident. In fact, we’ve even seen documentation in motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson’s owner’s manual about this occurrence. The manual mentions that this is one of the most common types of accidents for motorcyclists and that the driver of the car usually doesn’t even notice the motorcycle rider.
Some drivers forget that they should also be looking for bikes and motorcycles, not just cars and trucks.
What Role Car’s Play in Motorcycle & Bicycle Accidents
In many car accidents involving motorcycles or bicycles, the driver of the car will try to blame the victim by claiming they were speeding or not paying attention. They do this because they think the victim must have been at fault, even though they were following the law.
There are some people who think that if someone gets hurt while riding a motorcycle or bicycle, it’s their own fault. But that’s not fair, because those are perfectly legal activities and people shouldn’t be punished for doing something legal. We don’t really know why some people think this way, but it might be because they don’t ride motorcycles or haven’t ridden a bike since they were kids.
Some people may think that motorcycle riders and bicycle riders are not as good as drivers of cars or trucks.
Don’t Get Stuck With The Bill
It’s important for victims of accidents to make sure they get justice. This is especially true for accidents involving motorcycles or bicycles, where the insurance companies are usually very aggressive. This means that every detail of the case must be carefully looked into and evidence must be gathered correctly. Otherwise, the driver who caused the accident may be able to get away without paying for the damages they caused.
