Understanding Motorcycle Defects Leading To Accidents
Being involved in a motorcycle mishap, it usually makes sense to always blame the driver of a motor vehicle that was involved in the crash, if there was one. The anxiety of the crash is only amplified knowing that yours was the only vehicle involved in the crash. But there are also motorcycle accidents that are caused by the bike itself, and an example of this is a defect that was found in Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the past. In that famous case, the cause of the accidents was aptly nicknamed the “Harley Wobble” or the "Death Wobble."
Speed Wobbles And Motorcycle Defects.
As noted above, these defective bike models would begin wobbling when a rider reached higher speeds. When there is a defect of this type, and the motorcycle rider is involved in an accident, they might be entitled to hold the manufacturer accountable and recover compensation for the injuries.

Product liability claims is a lawsuit, in which the injured victim attempts to legally hold the motorcycle manufacturer or aftermarket parts manufacturer responsible. As a matter of fact, from time to time there could be problems with the motorcycle or product like:
- Design Defect: The design of the motorcycle or aftermarket part is defective.
- Manufacturing Defect: When the manufacturer has manufacturing errors that result in malfunctions of the motorcycle or part.
- Failure to Warn: The manufacturer that fails to properly warn the motorcycle rider of dangers they are aware of.
These can be violations of the manufacturers’ legal responsibility to the customer. Because of this, they can be legally accountable.
Proving a product liability claim can be complex, and the motorcycle company will fight these claims in order to protect their reputation. Thus, the run-down victim gets nothing. A winning product liability claim will need to show that the defect caused the harmful event. The first step is conducting proper discovery to obtain emails, memos, and internal notes. That way we know what the manufacturer knew and when they knew it. But knowing what to do, who to sue, and when to do it is a tall order in the modern legal community of legal mills and rich kids with law degrees.
