Manufacturer Defects

Was Your Motorcycle Accident Caused by a Manufacturer Defect?

Your motorcycle is a complex machine, made up of individual pieces working in unison to give you a smooth, safe ride. But what happens if one of the components of your motorcycle has a defect? It may cause a serious crash leading to severe injuries or worse – death.

If you or a loved one were injured in a motorcycle crash due to a faulty or defective part, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost time at work, and more.

Common Manufacturer Defects

  • Faulty Brakes – Your brakes are crucial to a safe ride. If they don't engage properly or are ineffective despite being new, they could lead to a serious accident.
  • Defective Tires – Tire blowouts, skidding, and a loss of control can cause serious injuries to motorcyclists.
  • Fuel Line Defects – Malfunctioning fuel lines can lead to overheating and, in some cases, fires that could burn or otherwise injure you or a passenger.
  • Engine Failure – Anywhere from stalling to blowing out entirely, an engine failure can lead to serious crashes.
  • Handlebar Defects – In recent recalls, some handlebars weren't properly treated against the heat of the bike, causing them to crack and move. This drastically reduces the riders control and can lead to a crash.

Changing and altering the construction of your bike might seem like an enticing idea. However, adding new parts can change the way your motorcycle rides which could lead to complications and crashes. Learn more about the risks of customizing your bike.
