Right Of Way Violation Motorcycles

Right of Way Violation & Motorcycles

In the case of motorcycle accidents, Pennsylvania law allows the victim to get the justified compensation from the liable party for the negligence or the rash driving on the road. When a motorcyclist is driving recklessly on the road, he or she is ignoring the right-of-way other commuters are entitled to and thus he or she is risking many lives including those of the fellow commuters on the road as well as his or her own. The right-of-way is the right that all the commuters, pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists are entitled to. The drivers must share the road with all other commuters where they cannot create any problem for others or cannot deprive them of their right-of-way. The violation of this right is referred to the incident where the driver fails to abide or yield by the right to pass, turn or merge with the legally determined priority system of the traffic on the road. Such an incident may result in devastating accidents that can turn fatal. If you or your loved ones have been a victim of such an accident due to the negligence of someone while driving on the road, you can take legal action against them to get the right justice and compensation. In such a predicament, you will need the professional guidance of a skilled Pittsburgh, PA accident lawyer.

The common injuries that a victim of the right-of-way violation can suffer from are:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Head injury
  • Wrongful death

In case you are suffering from any of these injuries, you must deal with the expenses of your treatment. Your Pittsburgh, PA injury lawyer can deal with these issues on your behalf by proceeding with the claim when you can take care of the treatment process.

Driving not only requires skills and techniques but also the ability to make judgment calls especially in the case of right-of-way. Merging lanes means the vehicles on the left side must yield to those on the rights side. Failure to do this properly is a violation of the right where the motorists on the road can suffer from a catastrophic accident. Especially if the motorcycle is riding near an intersection, it can become a reason for a fatal injury to the rider himself or herself. Abiding by the law as well as taking care of the rules and regulations are important to avoid such accidents.

In Pennsylvania, wearing a helmet for a trained motorcycle driver is not compulsory on the road. However, this relaxation itself has caused many injuries so far. That is why it is always advised that the driver must wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle.
