Being involved in a motorcycle mishap, it usually makes sense to blame the driver of a motor vehicle involved in the crash if there was one. Sometimes road conditions, unsafe lane splitting, or bad weather lead to motorcyclist deaths or permanent, long-term disabilities. But motorcycle accidents can be the fault of third parties, including parts manufacturers and others who made vehicle repairs, etc.
You will experience pain and anxiety after your motorcycle crash and injuries. Your discomfort will become amplified after you discover your motorcycle crashed by itself. Our Los Angeles motorcycle lawyers know that single-vehicle motorcycle accidents can be caused for many reasons, and many are not the rider’s fault! You may think you caused your wreck. But examples exist disproving this is true in every case.
For instance, our top Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyers know that past models of Harley-Davidson motorcycles caused single-vehicle crashes so much that safety experts’ coined a nickname for this defect, the “Harley Wobble” or the “Death Wobble.”
So when our lead motorcycle accident attorney, Michael Ehline, negotiates with the insurance company, or self-insured corporation, he knows how to handle brake failure claims and others that could recapture millions of dollars on behalf of the plaintiffs.
Understanding Motorcycle Defects Leading To Accidents
Speed Wobbles And Motorcycle Defects?
As noted above, these defective bike models would begin wobbling when a rider reached higher speeds, causing motorcycle crashes. When there is a defect of this type, and the motorcycle rider is involved in a motorcycle accident, they might be entitled to hold the manufacturer accountable and recover compensation for the injuries.
Ehline Law’s superior, Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorneys, have graciously assisted dilapidated riders in the recovery of money damages for almost a decade. So we understand the injured rider is often lonely and holed up at home or in a hospital. And they typically remain helpless in their immobile state. Our honorable and loyal motorcycle accident attorneys help fill in that empty void and stand in the corner of the hurt riders.

Accordingly, we can even arrange transport to our law offices.

Motorcycle Company Product Liability Lawsuit Attorneys
Product liability claim is a lawsuit in which the injured victim attempts to hold the motorcycle manufacturer or aftermarket parts manufacturer responsible legally. 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, causing a motorcycle accident.
- Failure to Warn: The manufacturer that fails to properly warn the motorcycle rider of dangers they are aware of that could contribute to a motorcycle accident, etc.
These can be violations of the manufacturers’ legal responsibility to the customer. Because of this, they can be legally accountable.
Proving A Motorcycle Products Liability Claim
Proving a product liability claim can be complex, and the motorcycle company will fight these claims in order to protect its 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.
This means having experience and resources at your side. The motorcycle product liability attorney at Ehline Law Firm often retains excellent design engineers, accident reconstruction pros, and others to examine the bike. And sometimes, they render their expert opinion of possible design defects. Also, they help get you paid for aftermarket parts defects and errors. After all, if it turns out the builder could have recalled or fixed the product, other issues come into play with a bad motorcycle part.
For example, let’s say you were wearing a helmet that was later found to be defective. Now you have a brain injury. But who can you sue to get the compensation you need for being out of commission? In addition to a potential road defect case against Los Angeles, or the other driver that hit you, you now have the deep pockets of a product defect claim.
Lawyers must be savvy and sophisticated; they must also be aggressive and assertive when necessary to find and hold all liable parties accountable to pay you the most money. Clients need this when going up against the lawyers representing the motorcycle or motorcycle parts builder. In this way, we stubbornly protect the casualty’s rights, which is a fact.
