Liability In Kearny Mesa Box Truck Accidents

Motorcyclists are uniquely vulnerable in car accidents. They lack the protection of enclosed vehicles and are more likely to be overlooked. According to the National Safety Council, “Over the last 10 years, deaths have increased 20% while death rates have increased 27%. The number of motorcycle fatalities now stands at 5,579 and the rate is 31.64 per 100 million vehicle miles.” There are a number of factors that could potentially contribute to a motorcycle accident.

  • Many motorcycle accidents occur when drivers make unsafe left turns.
  • Many motorcycle accidents occur when there is reduced visibility.
  • Many motorcycle accidents involve drivers that are intoxicated.

Under the Graves Amendment, companies that rent vehicles such as U-Haul and Penske typically will not be liable for the negligent actions of drivers that rent their vehicles. However, the driver of a rented vehicle could potentially be liable for a collision, especially if they were speeding prior to an accident. Victims of motorcycle accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including.

  • Broken  bones
  • Head injuries
