Motorcycles defects and accidents are often serious and lead to a potential lawsuit. Such accidents may be the result of human factors or an issue with the mechanical engineering of the motorcycle in question. Motorcycle expert witnesses are called upon for lawsuits during which the cause of a motorcycle failure and/or accident must be determined, which would require knowledge of how such vehicles are built and operated.
Motorcycle expert witnesses may be required to evaluate the situation by conducting a traffic accident reconstruction and investigation as a means of finding the source of the incident. Whether it involves racing and performing stunts with motorcycle dirt bikes in an extreme sports setting, or a Harley Davidson operating in a pedestrian environment, motorcycle collisions may occur wherever each vehicle is in use. An accident analysis and mechanical inspection regarding tire failure, vehicle trajectory, airbags, brake failure, and fuel injection would factor into the investigation.
Litigation involving motorcycles may require motorcycle expert witnesses with very specific backgrounds, as each situation may call for different types of information. Motorcycle expert witness may be experienced and licensed in mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, driver education, professional racing, and other areas related to engineering, motorcycle sports, or diver-focused safety. Motorcycle expert witnesses may also have varying expertise regarding different brands and builds of motorcycles, which would be crucial in identifying an issue with the manufacturing process.
