What to Do After a No-Contact Motorcycle Accident

We Exist to Protect You. Before Doing Anything Else, Call Us at (214) 307-8387.

Motorcycle accidents are incredibly dangerous, in no small part because of the opportunity for grave and deadly error by motorcyclists and by other drivers. The personal injury cases that follow can be even trickier to figure out because of the challenge of proving another driver behaved recklessly. If you’ve been harmed in a motorcycle accident, it is vitally important to figure out who is at fault, exactly why they are at fault, and whether or not they are legally responsible for your injuries.

This can be especially confusing in cases of no-contact accidents, in which another motorist causes a motorcyclist to crash without any contact between the vehicles. This can occur when one driver swerves into your lane, nearly hits you while making a left turn, causes your bike to wobble or hit a bump, or for any number of other reasons.

Sometimes such accidents can force a motorcyclist to run up onto a curb, hit a different vehicle, lay down the bike, or wipeout in any number of other ways. When this happens, motorcyclists may experience serious injuries, such as:

  • Burns
  • Road rash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Multiple fractures
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Spine and back injuries

Motorcycle accident injuries such as these tend to be quite serious and very costly. When there are no scratches or dings to prove that another motorist caused your crash, what can be done, and who should be held accountable for the cost?

What if Another Driver Forces Me to Lay the Bike Down?

Fortunately, other drivers (including other motorcyclists) can be held responsible for your injuries if their negligent driving caused your accident, even if there was no contact between your vehicle and theirs. However, a judge will need to hear more than your own testimony before determining liability for your injuries and damages.

There is some investigation that must be done in order to prove responsibility for your accident, and the success of your case will depend on who you hire to represent you in your case.
