What Are Equipment Malfunctions?
Equipment malfunctions occur when something does not work as it is supposed to. This can mean tires blowing out, parts breaking when they shouldn’t, and electronics in the motorcycle malfunctioning. A malfunction can be serious or small, but even the most minor problem can cause a serious accident when you are on the road on a motorcycle.
These malfunctions can be caused by defects in the design or construction, poor maintenance, or poor mechanical work. Whatever the cause, an equipment malfunction on a motorcycle is seriously dangerous, and those responsible can and should be held accountable for the harm they have caused and the danger they have put the driver in.
Who Can Be Held Accountable For Malfunctions?
There are a few possibilities for who could be at fault for equipment malfunctions. Some possible liable parties include:
- Manufacturers: Worker error, poor design, or a flawed construction process can all lead to possible malfunctions in the future.
- Dealers: If the dealer knew about or caused the malfunction in the motorcycle and failed to fix it, recall the motorcycle, or warn the purchaser, their actions put their customer in danger, and they can be held responsible.
- Mechanics: If a mechanic’s error or negligence has caused a malfunction in your motorcycle, there may be a potential claim against them. Make sure you keep records of your trips to the mechanic. Record the condition your motorcycle was in both before and after the mechanic looked at it to make sure they can be held responsible for anything they have done wrong.
Exactly who is at fault will depend on the facts of the case. Every case is unique and will require attention to detail to find who is responsible for the harm you have suffered.
What To Do After An Accident
After an accident, there are a few things you can do to protect your rights and help your lawyer. First, keep track of expenses related to the accident. This will make it much easier and quicker for you to get compensation for expenses such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages, past and future
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
Also, if you can, get together any paperwork that you have about your motorcycle. This includes who you purchased it from, maintenance reports from the mechanics, and any records you can prove you have maintained it. These records can help to track down the responsible party and can also help show that you do not bear any responsibility for the malfunction.
Even if you can’t complete these steps, make sure you contact a motorcycle accident lawyer from Ravid & Associates, P.C. as soon as you can. We can help track down this information and get you compensation, but only if you contact us.
