Forced Off the Road by Another Driver

If you’re on a motorcycle and somebody forces you off the road or puts you into a situation where they don’t actually hit you, but you still crash, you have a claim against their car. In the state of Utah, you’re required to have something more than just your word that says they forced you off; you need to have an eyewitness. You need to have some kind of proof that is more than just he said/she said. If you have that, you’re entitled to make a claim.

Accident Caused by Bad Road Conditions

If you’ve been injured in the state of Utah in a motorcycle crash due to bad roads or poor maintenance of the roads, you may have a claim. They’re not easy claims. It’s hard to sue the government, but that can be done in the right case. There has to be fault on the government entity that’s responsible for that road, and it has to be brought in a much shorter period of time than a normal claim in the state of Utah. If you think that your injury was caused by bad roads or improper maintenance, talk to somebody about that relatively quickly.

Hurt as a Passenger

If you were injured as a passenger on a motorcycle in the state of Utah, you do have a claim. You could potentially have a claim against the motorcycle driver, and you could also have a claim against the other vehicle involved, if there is another vehicle involved. If you were involved in an accident as a passenger, we recommend that you go and seek medical care and get an understanding of what your injuries are and what you need to do to make a full and physical recover, and then seek the help of an attorney to get full and fair compensation from the insurance company.
