Motorcycle Hit By Passing Car or Truck

North Carolina law states that all motorcycles are entitled to the full use of a lane.  Also, no motor vehicle can be driven in a way that deprives a motorcycle of the use of a full lane.  This means that cars and trucks cannot pass a motorcycle by using a portion of the motorcycle’s lane to make the pass.

We see many cases where a motorcyclist is hit by a car or truck who is passing the motorcycle but does not give the motorcycle the use of the full lane.  Any car or truck who passes a motorcycle in this manner is breaking North Carolina law.  When a car or truck breaks the law and hurts a motorcyclist, the injured motorcyclist has a claim against the other driver.  This claim may include compensation for medicla expenses, lost wages, and the significant pain and suffering the frequently accompanies a serious motorcycle accident.
