In essence, they’re all built on similar premises, which is a negligence type action. Basically everybody has a duty of care. Whether you’re driving a truck or you own a store or you’re driving a motorcycle down the street, everybody has the duty of care. In regards to vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents, every motorist has the duty to operate that vehicle or that motorcycle in a safe manner. If you fail to exercise that duty that’s where negligence comes in. Because somebody has failed to do their duty to operate that vehicle in a safe manner a cause of action exists. In simpler terms, a person who’s been injured has the right to get recovery for the harm that was done to them.
