Details from Your Accident
Motorcycle accidents occur in many ways. Sometimes, another driver does not see the motorcycle or misjudges the factors of time, speed, and distance pertaining to the movement of the motorcycle and the at-fault driver’s vehicle and cuts the motorcycle off, or can even run the motorcyclist off the road. Illegal turns, improper lane changes, and drunk or sleepy drivers all contribute to causing various motorcycle accidents.
Details from your accident are critically important in building your case. Generally, such information will include anything you remember, witness testimony, the police report, and your medical records. More specifically, information that applies to the unique details of your case may also be of value. For example, a dash-cam or surveillance video that captured the accident or the at-fault driver’s cell phone bill showing the time of a phone call made moments before the accident.
A complete investigation of the accident tailored to the specifics of your case will tell your lawyer who is responsible and why. Your lawyer might want to challenge the police report if it is incorrect. For example, something such as pictures or video you or someone else may have of the scene, showing the immediate post-accident position of vehicles in the roadway, may be critical in showing how the accident happened and in turn the fault of the other driver.

Potentially Responsible Parties Other Than Another Driver
In some cases, the manufacturer of your motorcycle may be liable if your accident occurred as a result of a defective design issue of a defectively manufactured component. Additionally, a mechanic might be sued if they used inadequate parts or serviced the motorcycle improperly.
You might sue a construction company that left standing water that caused you to skid, or you might sue a government agency that is responsible for a dangerous roadway design or maintenance. If multiple parties are responsible for your accident, your lawyer will almost certainly advance a claim against everyone who contributed to causing your injuries.
Suing for Compensation
When you file a lawsuit for compensation, you are demanding that the responsible party or parties pay you for the cost of your medical bills, cover your lost income, and pay for your pain and suffering. Your compensation is calculated by your lawyer using documentation such as medical bills and pay stubs as well as by reference to the results in other similar cases.
