However, many other drivers aren’t always cautious and don’t share the road. Motorcycles are much smaller than passenger vehicles, which means that riders can easily sustain severe injuries or even be killed in a crash.

Indiana is an at-fault state, so how will that impact your claim?
There are many safety precautions that motorcyclists take to minimize their risk of injury while out for a ride. Wearing a helmet is one of the best choices a rider can make. However, Hoosiers over the age of 18-years-old are not legally required to wear one. While it is ultimately your choice whether or not to wear a helmet, you greatly reduce your risk of injury when you do choose to wear one.
Fault is determined by who was more responsible for an accident. If the courts determine you were at 49 percent at fault for the accident but the other driver was at 51 percent at fault for the accident, they will be responsible to pay damages. In a nutshell, doing everything in your power to prevent an injury or accident from occurring will help reduce your at-fault percentage.
You can also reduce the risk of being found at-fault by having the proper motorcycle operating license and following all the rules of the road.
Keep in mind that at-fault percentages also factor into how much money you will be able to win in your case.
This can seem very complicated. If you have questions, it’s always a good idea to consult with your motorcycle accident lawyer. They will be able to explain the at fault and other legal terms in plain, simple to understand language.
Recovering from an accident of any kind can be a long, emotionally and physically taxing process. You really want someone on your side to help you get through the storm and fight for your right to compensation.
