Who are the possible liable parties in a bike accident? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp
  • At-fault driver of cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, or any other vehicle.
  • Owner of the vehicle if someone else was driving the vehicle (i.e. driver was drunk, but the owner still let the driver use the vehicle.)
  • If the driver was working at the time of the accident, their employer could be liable.
  • The municipality responsible for the road if it was road conditions that caused the accident.
  • Repair shop, whether for the bike or the vehicle involved in the crash, if the shop was negligent in repairs and that is what caused or contributed to the crash.
