A: So long as the accident was the fault of the other driver, the case should be successful. However, there are many other variables to consider, such as extent of damages or legal issues such as the statute of limitations. It is best to speak to a motorcycle accident lawyer to discuss the case.
Civil intersection motorcycle accident cases in no way depend on whether the other driver was given a citation for making an improper turn or for careless driving. In fact, such evidence generally is not admissible in court. In motorcycle accident cases, like all personal injury cases, the plaintiff bears the burden of proving that the accident was caused by the negligence of another party.
Pennsylvania law requires that drivers making left turns yield the right of way. Therefore, in this scenario, the motorcyclist would still be able to prove negligence, despite the fact that the police did not give a traffic ticket to the other driver.
