Michigan courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a motorcycle driver was negligent. Some examples of factors evaluated to determine motorcycle driver negligence in Sterling Heights Michigan can include, but are not limited to, the following:
A motorcycle driver may also be liable for a Sterling Heights motorcycle accident if a Michigan traffic court determines that the auto accident was caused by intentional or reckless conduct.
A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause a motorcycle accident or a multi-vehicle accident involving a motorcycle and/or related injuries.
In another example, if a mechanic fails to properly repair a motorcycle, and the failure causes a motorcycle accident in Sterling Heights Michigan, the person who improperly repaired the motorcycle, and his motorcycle repair shop, may be liable for injuries sustained. Other motorcycle driver negligence factors such as poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals can also contribute to the cause. Improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defects, as well as improper striping on the road's passing lanes, a sharp obstruction or problem with the roadway that obstructs drivers' vision, or poorly placed trees and utility poles can also cause serious motorcycle accidents in Sterling Heights Michigan. Finally, if a motorcycle accident in Sterling Heights Michigan is caused by an intoxicated driver, a bar or social host may be liable for damages sustained if they served an obviously intoxicated guest, who then drives and causes a motorcycle accident in Sterling Heights Michigan.
In Sterling Heights motorcycle accident cases, it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the motorcycle accident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries sustained.
