It is not uncommon for a motorcyclist to be blamed for an accident that he or she did not cause. As unfortunate as it may be, there is a prejudice against these drivers.
There are times when somebody in another type of vehicle, such as a passenger car, will blame the motorcyclist for speeding, reckless driving or something else that could cause an accident. However, this isn't always exactly what happened.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, you must understand how to hold the negligent party responsible. While they may be blaming everything on you, there are steps you can take to prove that it was the other person who caused the accident.
An investigation could determine that the other driver contributed to the wreck by:
-- Following too closely
-- Distracted driving
-- Failing to signal when changing lanes or making a turn
-- Improperly changing lanes
As a motorcyclist, you realize that some drivers are not interested in sharing the road. Subsequently, your well-being is put at risk.
