Item description for Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction and Litigation by Kenneth S. Obenski...
Learn motorcycle accident reconstruction techniques from the experienced authors of this book. The special mechanics of riding a motorcycle and the way a motorcycle performs mechanically are explained in nontechnical terms. Quasi-motorcycles are compared and contrasted with standard motorcycles to aquaint the reader with their similarities and differences. Rider safety considerations and human factors issues such as conspicuity, evasive action, warning to the rider, and rider experience and training are discussed in detail. Visual perception and injury biomechanics are given extensive coverage. A wide variety of motorcycle accidents are reconstructed and explained to illustrate the most useful, successful and often specialized techniques for reconstructing these accidents.
The legal aspects of motorcycle use are thoroughly covered, including helmet laws, negligence, laws governing accidents, accidents on public and private property, trespassing, warnings, roadway defects, motorcycle defects, injury to passengers, and Dram Shop liability in DUI cases. Case examples are included for each topic. These case studies have been revised, updated and expanded to include the most recent information.
This edition includes accident cause factors and identification of countermeasures, commonly known as "The Hurt Report," on CD-ROM. This important government study has never been repeated.
