When a Defective Part Causes a Motorcycle Accident

When a defective motorcycle part causes a catastrophic accident, the rider is at risk for sustaining lifelong injuries or death, and the victim or their family may be in need of good motorcycle accident lawyers Maryland cyclists can trust.

Even at low speeds, when a critical part malfunctions the rider has little recourse if they lose control of their bike. Our motorcycle accident lawyers at Cohen & Cohen have worked with many victims who were severely injured in this way. The sad fact is that this is not uncommon.

Unfortunately, many such victims are at a loss as to how they can recover the costs of their medical treatment and related damages. They may be hospitalized and otherwise incapacitated. In these situations they are unlikely to have the ability to pursue compensation from the defective parts manufacturer. This is where motorcycle accident lawyers who are licensed to practice in Maryland can be extremely valuable to the victim and their family.

Negligence and Responsibility

In theory, when a motorcycle parts manufacturer produces a defective product, they should identify it as such, pull it from the shelves, and warn consumers who already have it installed, and to replace the faulty part at the manufacturer’s expense. This process rarely, if ever, is completely successful. In fact, the parts manufacturer does not always know when or if one of their products is defective, or if they do they may not take responsibility. This is because a parts recall is very costly to the manufacturer and they may wish to avoid the hit to their profit margin.

A motorcyclist who is injured in this way may have legal recourse. With the help of our motorcycle accident lawyer, you may be able to file a personal injury claim or a civil lawsuit against the negligent manufacturer to try to force them to take responsibility. A substantial settlement from them will go a long way to pay for your medical treatment and the other damages you suffered. Many injured Maryland motorcyclists and their families find that it is easier to pursue compensation with the help of reputable motorcycle accident lawyers, rather than trying to do this on their own.

Seeking Compensation

Many people believe that the first course of action is always to sue a negligent party. In this case, it would be the parts manufacturer after it’s determined that their product caused the accident which resulted in you sustaining one or more serious injury. However, lawsuits are costly and time consuming. Also important to note is that there is no guarantee that the jury will return a verdict in your favor or award a reasonable settlement amount. There is a course of action that our motorcycle accident lawyer can help you take which is to file a personal injury claim against the parts manufacturer. Licensed Maryland motorcycle lawyers can tell you how the following may or may not apply to your particular case but in most instances the process will be as follows:

  1. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will build a case based on evidence and documentation that shows your injury was sustained in an accident which was caused by the malfunction of the manufacturer’s motorcycle part.
  2. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will submit this information to the manufacturer and their insurance company.
  3. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will include an itemized list of the damages you sustained and assign a dollar amount to each.
  4. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will negotiate with the manufacturer to arrive at a fair settlement amount.

If the manufacturer refuses to negotiate in good faith, or if they refuse to accept your claim regardless of the quantity and quality of information and evidence submitted, Cohen & Cohen will consider escalating the claim to a civil lawsuit.

If you were injured in a collision that was not your fault, contact us at Cohen & Cohen today to speak with our motorcycle accident lawyers Maryland motorcycle accident victims and their families recommend.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
