Liability in Motorcycle Accidents

In Ohio, if you were less than 50% at fault for your accident, the party who is primarily responsible can be held accountable for that percentage of your damages. However, you’ll need to provide evidence that shows their negligence was the proximate cause of your injuries.

Examples of negligence that can lead to motorcycle accidents:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving while distracted
  • Texting while driving
  • Following too closely
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Red light and stop sign violations
  • Failure to yield / intersection violations
  • Unsafe premises conditions
  • Defective products or motorcycles

Motorcycle Accident Statistics in Ohio

According to NHTSA, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents that occupants of passenger vehicles. 

This is due not only to the lack of protection riders have in comparison to people in standard cars and trucks, but also because far too many motorists overlook riders, engage in dangerous driving behaviors, and fail to safely operate their vehicles.

Data from the Ohio State Patrol shed light on motorcycle crashes in Ohio:

  • In 2020, 3,982 motorcycle-involved crashes occurred on Ohio roadways – an 11% increase from 2019. 212 motorcycle occupants were killed and another 3,590 were injured in these crashes.
  • Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Summit, and Lucas Counties accounted for over a third of all motorcycle crashes statewide.
  • 10% of motorcycle-involved crashes in 2020 involved alcohol or drugs.
  • Just 38% of riders involved in crashes were wearing a helmet, and for motorcycle occupants killed in crashes, the number dropped to 25%.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
