Motorcyclists are often unfairly blamed when a wreck happens. Common things drivers say when they are involved in a car versus motorcycle accident include: “he came out of nowhere,” “he was in my blind spot,” “he was weaving through traffic,” or “he was going too fast.” Due to this unfair prejudice, motorcyclists sometimes find themselves having to prove that an accident wasn’t their fault.
Being very clear about how a wreck occurred, the positions of the vehicles, and the precise sequence of events can help the driver of a motorcycle prove that he or she was not at fault. The insurance company will try to match up statements with the evidence to determine who is liable for the accident.
Gathering evidence immediately following the accident is also very important. Taking pictures and videos of the accident scene and gathering information from potential witnesses can be very helpful in proving that you were not at fault for the wreck.
