Motorcycle Defects to Watch Out for
If you own motorcycles or ride them on a regular basis, you understand how much maintenance goes into keeping your bike in tip-top shape. However, avoiding leaks, breaks, and malfunctions isn’t always up to you. Sometimes it’s the result of a manufacturing or design error, such as:
- Brake pad malfunctions
- Engines stalling out due to blown fuses
- Handlebars breaking due to cracking and heat intolerance
- Tire defects resulting in skidding, blowouts, and lack of control
Any of the above could cause you to run into another vehicle, lose control of your bike, hit a pedestrian, fly off your vehicle, or veer off the road or into another lane. Such accidents may leave you with severe and costly injuries, such as brain trauma, spinal damage, multiple fractures, burns, and more. Motorcycle part defects could lead to accidents so serious that you become permanently disabled and unable to work or go about your life as normal.
In such cases, you need an experienced attorney on your side to plead your case and protect your best interests.
