Can both passengers and drivers of motorcycles file a lawsuit following a motorcycle accident?
In the state of Arizona, both drivers and passengers involved in motorcycle accidents caused by other drivers’ carelessness can file personal injury lawsuits. Because severe injuries are common in motorcycle accidents, it’s crucial to contact the Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys at Lloyd Baker to help you recover the financial compensation you need.
Can I file a claim even if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?
Helmets are only mandatory for motorcycle riders and passengers under the age of 18 in the state of Arizona. Not wearing a helmet does not bar you from filing a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent driver, but it may have an impact on the amount of money you can recover in a settlement or jury verdict.
