Cabell couple bring lawsuit following motorcycle accident

A couple from Cabell County have brought a lawsuit following a motorcycle accident. The woman is suing a motorcycle driver for an accident that occurred while she was a passenger on his motorcycle. The motorcycle she was a passenger on got into a motorcycle accident with a car. She is also suing the driver of the car. The motorcycle accident victim has accused both parties of negligence in the motorcycle collision. The couple is seeking damages, including those for loss of consortium.

Whenever a negligent driver has caused a motorcycle accident that harms another party, the negligent driver may be liable to the motorcycle accident victim for damages. Damages are based on the nature of the injuries and harm suffered in the motorcycle accident and liability is based on the negligence of the party at-fault for the accident. The responsible party may be required to compensate the injured victim for the damages suffered.

Negligent drivers face liability for injuries that are caused when the driver has failed to exercise the normal amount of care that would usually be expected in the situation to ensure the safety of others. A victim injured in a motorcycle accident may be able to recover damages, including pain and suffering damages, medical expenses and lost wages. The damages are intended to make the injured motorcycle accident victim whole following the harm that resulted from the negligence of another.

Motorcycle versus car accidents can cause serious injuries and lasting damage to motorcycle accident victims. Because of this, injured victims are able to seek legal recourse for harm through the legal system which is designed to aid and protect victims.
