Determining whether a defective part was responsible for your Kentucky motorcycle accident can be difficult, especially if you are not a mechanic. However, there are a few key indications that something may have been wrong with your bike and not with your riding ability or the road conditions.
If you were involved in a crash during ideal driving conditions—that is, no road debris, good weather, driving at a reasonable speed—faulty parts or design could be responsible for your motorcycle accident.
Likewise, if your motorcycle begins malfunctioning out of the blue you should be on high alert because problems typically take awhile to develop. If a problem happens suddenly, there may be a defect.
You should contact a personal injury attorney in Louisville if you noticed any of the following signs:
- strange noises immediately before the accident;
- balance problems that developed quickly; or
- tire malfunctions on new tires.
If you believe that a defective part caused your injuries, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer to request compensation for your losses.
