When a car turns left into an intersection and collides with a motorcycle, it is nearly always the automobile driver who will found to be at fault. In some cases where the motorcyclist is speeding, the motorcyclist may be at fault as well, but this does not necessarily mean the motorcyclist is barred from recovery. Injured motorcyclists (or their families where the motorcyclist has died in the accident) can bring a personal injury lawsuit to recover the damages they have suffered in the accident, including: medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and related costs. In many cases, defendants and insurers will settle the claims and trial can be avoided.
