Who Is At Fault For Causing a Motorcycle Accident With a Double-Parked Car or Truck?
Double parking is illegal, not just so legally parked cars aren’t blocked in. A double-parked car or truck obstructing the lane of traffic is a danger to oncoming traffic.
We represented several motorcyclists who were injured in motorcycle accidents because a double-parked car or truck obstructed the lane of traffic, causing another car to hit the motorcycle.
Double-parked cars and trucks are also often responsible for dooring accidents with bicycles and motorcycles.
Sometimes a double-parked car or truck makes an illegal U-turn which violates as many as 5 New York State Vehicle and Traffic Laws.
New York courts have frequently held that an illegally double-parked vehicle was the cause of the accident and injury when the double-parked car or truck was not moving.
Did you hit a double-parked car or truck in the rear? This is one of the few times that you can hit another vehicle in the rear and not be at fault.
Was a double-parked car or truck responsible for causing your motorcycle accident?
If you have had a motorcycle accident because of a double-parked car or truck, we would like to represent you.

Dooring accidents with bicycles and motorcycles often occur when a car or truck is double parked. While a dooring accident can happen when a car is parked legally, it is more likely to happen when a car or truck is double parked. Dooring accidents are common when passengers open a door to exit a taxi.
