Experienced Vancouver WA Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcycle drivers are at least 20 times more likely to be killed in accidents than automobile drivers. For this reason, having one of our Vancouver WA motorcycle accident attorneys to help if you or a loved one is a victim of a motorcycle crash is vital.
Motorcycles are much more difficult for other drivers to see, especially at night or in rainy conditions. Because a rider is more exposed, injuries are often severe. The most common cause of motorcycle fatalities is a head injury, even though the risk of a head or brain injury is reduced by helmet use.
In many states, most motorcycle, moped and scooter drivers must have a different class of driver’s license and special training to operate their vehicles safely. Even safe drivers can become victims of terrible accidents because of another person’s negligent driving or due to a defective product.
Product Liability and Defective Auto Parts
Many motorcycle riders enjoy adding upscale “after-market” products to their bikes. One D’Amore Law Group client added a defective part to his motorcycle, and as a result, one Sunday afternoon, a motorcycle ride turned tragic. A longtime Portland motorcycle rider, he purchased and professionally installed a new exhaust pipe made specifically for his type and model of bike. As he turned his bike into a curve, the pipe hit the pavement – throwing both the bike and rider across the pavement and down a cliff. The rider lost his leg above the knee. A thorough investigation proved the cause of the motorcycle accident: the design of the after-market exhaust pipe was defective. Personal injury attorney Tom D’Amore successfully secured a recovery from the national company that manufactured the defective proContact duct.
