Motorcyclists are More Vulnerable Than Other Motorists and Suffer More Severe Injuries.

Data reveals that 92,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic accidents in this country in 2015, and 4,586 resulted in fatalities. Often a truck or automobile driver’s inattentiveness or their failure to correctly recognize or yield the right of way to motorcyclists, has resulted in great risk to motorcyclists.  

Reduced visibility, size, and having only one headlight, all contribute to a motorcycle’s risk of harm. Other hazardous issues include sudden lane changes. Motorcycle and scooter riders have the same legal rights as those enjoyed by truck and automobile drivers. Still, regrettably, bias and negative attitudes against them exist on the roads. 

It’s therefore essential to hire an experienced and knowledgeable motorcycle injury attorney familiar with the unique issues associated with motorcycle accidents and who will work relentlessly to overcome those prejudices and obtain for you the compensation to which you are entitled.

What Can a Motorcycle Attorney Do for You?

You should speak with a trusted motorcycle injury attorney as soon as possible following the accident. Failure to do this can lead to a lack of evidence crucial to the case. It is, therefore, best to contact us promptly after the accident occurred so we can conduct our investigation right away. 

Types of Damages Recoverable in Motorcycle Injury Claims

  • Medical costs (past and future).
  • Lost wages.
  • Mental anguish, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other kinds of mental distress. 
  • Property damage and in some special cases, punitive damages, for example, where the driver was drunk or in a hit and run situation.

We Don’t Charge Legal Fees or Expenses Unless We Collect Damages on Your Behalf. 

Motorcycle riders must know that the other driver’s insurance company will generally attempt to make you think you don’t have to hire a motorcycle accident attorney. The insurance company will promise that they will pay you adequate damages after they finish their investigation. Don’t be misled. This really is almost always an attempt to take advantage of you by taking a recorded statement, having you see their own physicians, delay running your investigation, and otherwise build their case against you. Subsequently, after much delay, they’re often going to offer an unfairly low settlement to you. Don’t let this happen. 

In fact, it is best not to have any communications at all with the other party’s insurance company, but if you do talk with them, be certain not to allow them to consider or use a recorded statement from you. Leave all communications in the control of an experienced motorcycle accident injury attorney. 

Severe Injuries Are Common In Motorcycle Accidents

You could suffer very severe injuries in a motorcycle accident due to the relative lack of adequate protection. Unlike passenger vehicles equipped with numerous safety features, a motorcycle lacks such features, thus leaving you exposed almost entirely. That means even a relatively minor accident can lead to severe injuries and substantial medical issues.

Some of the potential injuries you may suffer include:

    Spinal injuries

    Z

    Disfigurement

    Severe cuts and lacerations
