Can I File a Motorcycle Accident Claim if Bad Roads Caused My Injury?

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, however. 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.

Can I File a Motorcycle Accident Claim if I Was Injured as a Passenger?

If you were injured as a passenger on a motorcycle in the state of Utah, you 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.

Can I File a Motorcycle Accident Claim if I Was Partially At-Fault for the Crash?

In the state of Utah, if you’ve been in a motorcycle crash, it’s not uncommon for motorcycles to be blamed for part of the responsibility for the crash. If you are partially at fault in a motorcycle crash, you can still collect from the other party, as long as you are less than 50% at fault. Those types of cases are very fact-specific, depending on what you did, what the other driver did, and how the crash occurred.
