Personal Injury Law: Best Practices On Motorcycle Accidents With Product Liability Defects

August 10th, 2018

A motorcycle accident in Rhode Island and Massachusetts can cause serious personal injuries.  Did you know that in addition to pursuing an at fault driver, our law firm can investigate whether a defect caused your crash? You may be entitled to compensation in these circumstances.

Motorcycle Defect Personal Injury Case: What You Need To Know

Defects in motorcycles can be extremely life-threatening, and manufacturers are held to a very high standard to make sure the motorcycles they produce are safe for their riders.

These personal injuries could range from a simple road rash to a more serious traumatic brain injury.  We can help investigate the cause of your motorcycle accident, and if appropriate consider legal action for such defects.

A defect is described by the Rhode Island and Massachusetts law as “a problem with a product that makes it unsafe for use as intended.” Every year, serious and fatal motorcycle accident personal injuries are caused by a variety of defective motorcycle parts, like:

  • Brakes
  • Chains
  • Clutch and transmission
  • Engine

Additionally, some manufacturers and distributors improperly label their helmets as DOT or Snell certified. This mislabeling may give someone an opportunity to make a defect claim. Helmets can also have design issues and flaws that decrease the ability to protect a rider during a motorcycle accident.
