Municipal Negligence and Motorcycle Accidents
Unlike car accidents, there are not typically many “minor” motorcycle accidents where the rider can walk away without even a scratch. Motorcycles do not provide the outer protection that automobiles do, leaving riders at serious risk of an injury during an accident. One cause of motorcycle accidents that many people fail to consider is municipal negligence. This can happen if government workers fail to maintain roadways.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury after a motorcycle accident and believe that a negligent municipal worker is responsible, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Common Types of Municipal Negligence
Municipal workers are responsible for keeping public roads safe for drivers, pedestrians, and motorcyclists. If these workers ignore problems or reports of dangerous road conditions, they may put innocent lives at risk. Some of the most common forms of municipal negligence are:
- Failure to correctly mark lanes
- Lack of guardrails
- Not replacing or repairing broken safety or traffic signs
- Neglecting to fix potholes
- Uneven pavement
- Steep shoulder drop-offs
When municipal workers act negligently, they are putting innocent lives at risk. If a negligent municipality has caused your motorcycle accident, you should contact a lawyer immediately.
