Motorcycle Accidents Committed to Justice

Indianapolis Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Years of Experience Representing Riders

At Hayes Law Office, we know how hard it is to bounce back from a motorcycle injury. A negligent driver who isn’t paying attention can cause serious damage to your property and yourself. We are intimately familiar with the challenges facing riders in an personal injury case, and we can help you fight for compensation to cover your bills and damages for pain and suffering.

Comparative Negligence in a Motorcycle Injury Case

Indiana uses a “comparative negligence” model for injury lawsuits. Put simply, the state acknowledges that more than one person can be responsible for the cause of an accident. The courts then decide the percentage of fault: Person A was 15% responsible for the accident, and Person B was 85% responsible.

From there, the plaintiff is awarded compensation based on the responsibility of the defendant. If you, the plaintiff, were 20% responsible for the accident, you can expect 80% of the total damages.

Hayes Law Office knows how to argue for the percentage of fault in an accident. We can look at the visibility of roads, traffic patterns, and the defendant’s negligence to build a case for seeking the highest level of compensation that you deserve.

Manufacturer Liability

When faulty design causes an accident, the manufacturer can be held liable. Vehicle recalls are serious business in the world of motor vehicles. A manufacturer who didn’t catch a faulty part or who tried to hide it can be held legally responsible for the damages that ensue. This includes lawsuits from injured riders as well as fines from the government. Hayes Law Office has the resources to thoroughly investigate the cause of your accident. If we find that poor design is at fault, we can help hold the motorcycle companies responsible.

Government Entity Liability

Motorcycle riders are more susceptible to road hazards than people encased in their cars. Even when a rider is driving conservatively – obeying laws and avoiding risks – badly kept roads pose more of a threat. Government entities need to be held responsible when they don’t keep up with roads and endanger their citizens. We aren’t scared to go after the people responsible for your pain, even when those people are the ones in power.
