Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Truck drivers have a responsibility to scan the road ahead of them and check their blind spots. Far too often, drivers fail to do this. According to the California Vehicle Code 22107, “No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course or move right or left upon a roadway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety and then only after the giving of an appropriate signal in the manner provided in this chapter in the event any other vehicle may be affected by the movement.”
When a motorcyclist is injured due to the negligence of a truck driver they may have the ability to file a bodily injury claim for damages. Damages in a personal injury claim may include financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. A motorcycle accident attorney can examine the specific facts of your case and let you know if you have a claim that can be pursued.
