Question:

Can I file a motorcycle accident claim if I’m injured by a pothole or hazardous road?

Answer:

The other day I got a call from a client who was on his motorcycle in the parking lot of a supermarket and there were potholes all over the parking lot. Unfortunately, the front wheel of his bike landed in a pothole and it caused him to lose control and fall, and he suffered a significant leg injury. He asked me, “Can I go after the owner of the parking lot?” The answer is yes.Hazardous Road Motorcycle AccidentWe need to find out who the owner of the parking lot is.
