Motorcycle accident

According to a sobering statistic from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are still excessively present in traffic-related deaths. For every mile a vehicle travels, motorcyclists are about 29 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident compared to car drivers/passengers. Motorcycle accidents are often implicated with claims of serious and catastrophic injuries. Most motorcyclists know the dangers on the road and take safety precautions to avoid an accident. Unfortunately, even when cyclists are sure to take all safety measures, they cannot prevent the actions of a careless car or truck driver.

After a motorcycle accident, you have two options for insuring your compensation for your injuries and other losses: a personal injury claim or a personal injury lawsuit. It is important for you to understand the difference between the two: claims are legal demands for compensation, such as asking an insurance company to make payment after an accident. Lawsuits are legal proceedings that are decided in court and involve one party, the plaintiff, suing another party, the defendant, for compensation.

As if the pain is not enough, there is a lot to do after a motorcycle accident to give your case the best chance of achieving a fair settlement. Many of these actions need to be completed as quickly as possible while valuable evidence is available. If you file a personal injury lawsuit after a motorcycle accident, it is likely that your lawsuit will include a lawsuit or claims against the driver at fault for negligence. When you contact a lawyer, you need to be prepared for all the information (or evidence) that you collected after the incident. Your lawyer will then be able to evaluate the lawsuit and provide you with the help you need.

A motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical costs
  • Damage to property;
  • Lost wages
  • Intellectual anxiety
  • Punitive damages
