How Can I Prove That the Driver of the Car That Hit My Motorcycle Was at Fault for the Accident?
The ability to successfully prove liability for an accident hinges on the establishment of the at-fault party’s negligence. Negligence is established by showing that:
- The at-fault party owed you a duty of care. This duty of care, in terms of a motorcycle accident, would likely be something to the effect of operating his or her motor vehicle in a safe and lawful manner.
- There was a breach in that duty of care. In other words, the motorist failed to safely or lawfully operate his or her vehicle by engaging in dangerous behavior, such as drunken or distracted driving or speeding.
- The breach resulted in the accident, which caused your injuries.
