Being involved in a motorcycle mishap, it usually makes sense to always blame the driver of a motor vehicle that was involved in the crash, if there was one. Bot there are also motorcycle accidents that are caused by the bike itself, and an example of this, is a defect that was found in Harley Davidson motorcycles in the past and was nicknamed the “Harley Wobble” or the Death Wobble.
These defective models would begin wobbling when a rider reached high speeds. When there is a defect of this type and the motorcycle rider is involved in an accident they might be entitled to hold the manufacturer accountable and recover compensation for the injuries. Ehline Law has assisted dillapitaed riders in recovery of money damages for almost a decade. We understand the injured rider is often lonely, and holed up at home or in a hospital. They also typically helpless in their immobile state. We fill in that empty void and stand in the corner of the hurt riders. We are the “Rider’s Friend”. We are compassionate and can even arrange transport to our law offices or even your doctor’s offices. We are a friend in deed.
Product liability claims is a lawsuit, in which the injured victim attempts to legally hold the motorcycle manufacturer or aftermarket parts manufacturer responsible when there are problems with the motorcycle or product like:
- Design Defect: The design of the motorcycle or after market part is defective.
- Manufacturing Defect: When the manufacturer has manufacturing errors that result in malfunctions of the motorcycle or part.
- Failure to Warn: The manufacturer that fails to properly warn the motorcycle rider of dangers they are aware of.
These can be violations of the manufacturers’ legal responsibility to the customer, for which they can be held legally accountable.
Proving a product liability claim can be complex, and the motorcycle company will fight these claims in order to protect their reputation. Thus, often, the run-down victim is not awarded compensation. A winning product liability claim will need to show that the defect caused the harmful event. This means having experience and resources at your side. The motorcycle product liability attorney at Ehline Law Firm PC, often retains design engineers to examine the bike, and to render their expert opinion of possible designs defects, aftermarket parts defects and manufacturing errors. They are also able to be aggressive and assertive when necessary when going up against the lawyers representing the manufacturer. In this way, we stubbornly protect the rights of the casualty.
