Recovering Damages with Shoulder Drop-Off Claims
Although road shoulders offer motorists a designated space to pull off of the road in case of emergency, shoulders can be particularly dangerous to motorcyclists.
Depending upon how well-maintained a road's shoulders are, any variation in the drop-off or sudden drop-off may cause a motorcyclist to lose control of his or her bike. Though these defects may be overcome with heavier vehicles, a motorcycle’s distribution of balance and weight makes these defects potentially dangerous for motorcyclists.
If you have been injured in a road defect accident, it may be wise to speak with a road defect attorney with The Biker Lawyers to determine what legal action may be available to you.
While every case will likely present its own set of challenges, accident victims routinely seek compensation to address the following damages:
- Any medical or rehabilitative care resulting from the accident
- Any loss of income or diminished capacity to earn
- Any property damages associated with the accident
Whatever the exact circumstances of your accident happen to be, however, our legal team is prepared to help you develop a legal strategy intended to help you recover all of the damages you sustained in your accident.
