Occasionally in motorcycle accident compensation claims in which the cause of an accident is not clear and it may be that both drivers were partly at fault. In these situations, either or both drivers can take legal action in claiming compensation for any injury that they may have sustained. If one party takes action, then the other party may possibly counterclaim and both activities are heard together by the same judge which will apportion blame between all parties involved on a percentage basis.
The practical effect of this situation is that although a driver may have been partly responsible for causing the accident, it’s still possible to make accident compensation claims for more than two parties involved with legal action and an innocent passenger could file a case against the other driver who then promptly joins in the passenger’s driver alleging a contribution.
