Anatomy of a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit
When you have been injured and bring a lawsuit, you are known as the plaintiff. The individual whose carelessness caused your injuries is known as the defendant.In a Paradise motorcycle accident, you must establish four things in order to be entitled to recover damages. You must:
- Show the defendant owed you a duty of care to act in a certain manner. In the context of a motorcycle accident, this means showing that the defendant had an obligation to operate his or her vehicle in a reasonable and careful manner. In most cases, this is not difficult to show. It is generally accepted that anyone who uses a vehicle on the roadway owes others on the roadway a duty of care.
- Demonstrate that the defendant breached the duty of care. This means you must show evidence that the defendant did not operate his vehicle in a reasonably careful manner. This can be demonstrated by showing the defendant failed to follow the rules of the road or violated a traffic law.
- Explain that the defendant’s breach of the duty of care caused your injuries. It does not matter if there was a breach of the duty of care if that breach was not the cause of your injuries. This usually means showing that but for the defendant’s breach of the duty of care, there would not have been any accident. It is not uncommon for there to be multiple persons at fault for a motorcycle accident; in such a case, expert witnesses may be necessary to establish what caused your collision.
- Establish that you suffered injuries. This typically involves introducing evidence of your medical bills, lost wages, and other injuries and losses you suffered. You are unable to recover any compensation if you cannot show what it is you are needing to be compensated for. Although this is likely one of the easier elements to prove, failing to produce evidence of the extent of your injuries can result in a compensation award that is too low or no compensation at all.
