Identifying the Responsible Party in a Product Liability Case
There are requirements that manufacturers must follow to ensure the safety of motorcycles on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that they issue “the standards to which [motorcycles] must be certified.” Unfortunately, some companies may ignore regulations for the sake of product promotion or sales.
A single motorcycle may go through several companies in a supply chain before it finally makes it onto the sales floor. As such, all associated parties are responsible for making sure it is safe to ride. As your attorneys, our job is to identify the party liable for your accident and subsequent injuries.
In a defective motorcycle part accident case, negligent parties may include:
- Motorcycle manufacturer
- Auto part company
- Auto part designers
- Inspection agency
- Trucking company
- Retail company
A Fort Lauderdale motorcycle lawyer can investigate your accident to determine who is to blame for the accident and how their negligence led to your injuries. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine to get started today: 1-800-747-3733.
