When the Road Itself Causes a Motorcycle Crash
Negligent drivers are not the only danger that motorcycle riders face. The road itself can hold many hazards. If you or a loved one has been hurt because of an object in the road, a defect in the road or any other road hazard, you may be able to seek compensation for medical bills and other costs. It is important that you discuss your motorcycle accident claim with an experienced lawyer.

Some of the road hazards that cause motorcycle accidents are the result of other vehicles. A common scenario is a semi-truck that suffers a blowout, sending shredded tire treads into the path of a motorcyclist. Even if the motorcyclist manages to avoid collision with the semi-truck tires, he or she may be forced to lay the bike down to do so.
Other road hazards are related to road construction. Perhaps the asphalt was not cured properly or a design defect left the lanes uneven. Perhaps the road was resurfaced improperly or dangerous loose gravel was left behind. No matter what the case, our attorneys will determine what went wrong and find out who was responsible. We can take action against truck companies, road construction companies and other parties to get results for you.
