What is a motorcycle accident?
When a motorcycle rider collides with another vehicle, it’s known as a motorcycle accident. A motorcycle accident can happen for various reasons and often results in serious injuries, with an accident claim and insurance trail sure to follow.
Motorcycles are smaller than a car and often share the road with cars. A motorcycle rider is exposed to a higher personal risk of injury than those in car accidents because motorcycle riders lack the protection offered by larger vehicles. This means motorcycle accident cases and resulting motorcycle injuries are also more likely to be fatal than in car accidents (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). It’s actually surprising that most insurance companies don’t increase life insurance rates for motorcycle riders compared to their car-driving counterparts.
In many cases, a motorcycle accident is caused by other drivers who fail to see motorcycles on the road. One negligent car driver can cause serious accidents, injuries, and even death for motorcycle riders. These are the types of accidents motorcycle riders fear most, as they have little control over their safety. If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident and suffered some manner of personal injury, it’s imperative to seek medical treatment right away. You’ll also want to review a law firm (such as Moet Law) or accident attorneys who specialize in these types of motorcycle accident cases so they can help with any legal matters that arise from accidents such as these.
What Types Of Injuries Are Common In Motorcycle Accidents?
When a motorcycle crashes, the rider can suffer serious injuries. The most common injuries are broken bones and road rash–the skin that is scraped off the body during an accident. Road rash may be minor or severe depending on how fast you were going when your bike crashed, but it’s almost always painful.
Traumatic brain injuries are also common in motorcycle accidents because they involve high-speed impacts that can cause internal bleeding or swelling in your brain. These types of injuries require immediate medical attention and can have long-term effects on your physical health as well as cognitive abilities like memory loss or depression. Therefore, these accidents usually result in higher compensation paid out by the guilty party/ insurance company covering them. That money covers the increased costs of medical bills and other damages inflicted on the victim.
You’ll also want to work with lawyers who have experience negotiating with insurance companies to earn you the fair compensation you deserve for your medical bills and other costs from the accident. Attorneys ensure the law is on your side with the correct legal help so you can receive the money needed for your personal injury and recovery.
When should injured motorcycle riders contact a motorcycle accident attorney?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you must contact a motorcycle accident attorney right away. Lawyers can help make sure that your rights are protected and you’re treated fairly. In addition, having legal counsel could make all the difference in terms of getting compensation for your injuries and other losses.
The sooner you contact an accident lawyer, the sooner they can start helping you recover compensation for your injuries and other losses. If you wait too long before contacting an attorney, however, it may be difficult for them to help earn fair compensation because::
- The insurance company may refuse to pay as much of your damages as they would have if contacted earlier; or
- Statutes of limitations (which limit how long someone has after an accident occurs before they must file their lawsuit) could prevent recovery altogether if not met within those timeframes.
If you have suffered serious injuries, it is a wise idea to contact prospective lawyers right away. This can include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other serious physical injuries. But it can also include emotional trauma after a motorcycle accident.
If you are unsure about the legal process, it is prudent to hire an attorney. Lawyers can help you with the legal process and represent your interests. Lawyers are experienced in this area and know how to get compensation for their clients. Lawyers can also help with filing an accident claim, negotiating with insurance companies, and representing their clients in court.
If you feel as though you have been treated unfairly by the police or insurance companies, it’s advisable to contact an attorney. An attorney can help you determine what options are available in your situation and what you need to move forward. If you need any guidance with your case, our legal team is here to help!
Do I need an accident attorney for a motorcycle accident?
It’s always a wise idea to review a law firm or accident lawyer after a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accident lawyers can help you get the money (compensation) you deserve for any manner of motorcycle injury, including medical bills, lost wages, loans, and pain and suffering. Further, if these law firms and attorneys operate on contingency (we do!), you don’t have to pay until the case is won, and fair compensation is earned for your motorcycle accident from an insurance payout.
Some of the benefits of hiring a law firm / personal injury lawyer for your motorcycle accident include:
- Expertise: Lawyers know the ins and outs of the law better than anyone else, which means attorneys can help you maximize your personal injury compensation by using their knowledge of the law against insurance companies who want to pay as little as possible on motorcycle accidents and injury claims like yours. Attorneys will understand the language of insurance companies and will be able to best negotiate potential compensation on behalf of the insurance companies. This ensures riders that each personal injury is covered fairly.
- Speed: Experienced accident attorneys will know how long each step in the process should take–and if there are delays along the way because an insurance representative isn’t doing their job correctly (or at all), he or she will know exactly who to call to so that nothing falls through the cracks during this stressful time for all riders and drivers involved.
- Accuracy: There are a plethora of documents and deadlines involved in any motorcycle accident case. All of said documents will be requested by your insurance company to prove the true nature of your injuries and the personal need for financial compensation. Competent lawyers ensure you don’t miss any of them, in a way the law acknowledges.
How do I select a motorcycle accident lawyer for my accident claim?
When you’ve suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident case, there’s a reasonable chance that you’ll need to hire a law firm and accident lawyer for your personal injury. There are many things to consider before hiring the right attorney for your accident case. These include how much experience prospective lawyers have regarding motorcycle accidents and what kind of reputation they have among other motorcycle accident lawyers or personal injury attorneys.
First and foremost, do your research on accident attorneys, as well as their case and motorcycle injury experience. Ensure each prospective lawyer has valuable experience related to your type of motorcycle accident and injury. Find out how many years of experience your accident lawyer has related to motorcycles. For example, a car accident attorney might not have enough related experience even with all similarities between a car and motorcycle accident case. A car accident attorney may understand most of the intricacies related to your motorcycle accident, but there are other underlying factors when deciding compensation for any accident.
Ensure your hired law firm is up to the challenge, and that their areas of expertise relate directly to your motorcycle accident as well as injuries sustained. For example, here at Moet Law, we’ve helped countless victims of motorcycle accidents involving all types of injuries. Our team’s versatility will be vital in your case.
How Do I Find The Best Lawyer For My Budget?
As with any other business transaction, consult law firm reviews, websites, and word of mouth. Evaluate each lawyer’s record of obtaining favorable results for their clients following motorcycle accidents/ injury cases. Also, for injury attorneys, look at their website and social media presence to get an idea of how lawyers handle themselves in the public eye. You want to make sure you’re hiring a qualified, reputable motorcycle accident lawyer who is also suited to your specific case and needs. Will these attorneys be able to earn you the compensation you deserve from the insurance company to cover your injuries?
Consider your budget when scoping motorcycle accident lawyers. See if your lawyer works on a contingency, meaning they won’t be paid unless they win your case. For example, here at Moet Law, our attorneys operate on a contingency payscale, meaning you pay nothing unless we win and earn you fair compensation for your injuries.
What does a motorcycle accident attorney do during an accident case?
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, an accident lawyer at Moet Law can protect your rights and help you recover damages for your injuries, medical bills, and more. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to answer any questions you have about your case. He or she can assist with filing an accident claim with the other driver’s insurance company. This will enable them to pay for all of your medical bills and other expenses related to recovering from your motorcycle accident.
While working on the case, an accident lawyer will identify who is liable for the accident. The other driver may have been at fault or there could have been an issue with your bike. If you can prove that it was someone else’s fault, then a motorcycle accident attorney will help you navigate the claims process. This is so that you can get compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, loans, pain, and suffering, etc.
Motorcycle accident attorneys can also help you recover damages. In addition to helping clients identify liability in motorcycle accident cases (and negotiate settlements with insurance companies), our firm also handles cases involving:
- Motorcycle crash injuries caused by defective parts on bikes such as brakes or tires;
- Distracted driving resulting in collisions with motorcycles;
- Drivers failing to yield the right-of-way when turning left across traffic lanes where motorcyclists are traveling straight ahead (or vice versa);
- Failure by city planners or local governments not to provide adequate safety measures such as signs warning drivers about upcoming intersections where cars merge into traffic lanes occupied exclusively by motorcycles
What If My Case Goes To Trial?
Accident attorneys will also help guide you through the claims process, and ensure your motorcycle accident case is accurate and compelling. If you’re unsure about what steps to take after an accident, reach out to lawyers who specialize in motorcycle accidents as soon as possible. For example, our lawyers can guide how to proceed with the case and offer support through every step of the process–from filing paperwork with insurance companies, negotiating settlements, and determining compensation amounts for medical bills or lost wages caused by injuries sustained during the crash itself (or both).
Since our attorneys know what accident evidence to look for and how to use it, they have an advantage over the other side. Your attorney will know what questions to ask witnesses and police officers at your deposition. Your attorney will also know how to find medical records or other documents that could help strengthen your case. An experienced attorney from our law firm will also know how best to present the facts of your injury case so that a California judge and jury will find in your favor. This way you can earn money in the form of a settlement offer, and return home to resume your recovery.
Who Pays For My Medical Bills After A Motorcycle Accident?
A motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get a fair settlement and make sure you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. An experienced attorney knows how to negotiate with big corporations and insurance companies, who will often try to settle cases quickly and quietly out of court. They try to get you the money you deserve so you can get back on your feet, and recover from your injuries.
A good law firm and attorney will also be able to tell if there were any other factors involved in your motorcycle accident, such as poor road conditions or defective equipment on another car involved in the accident. If so, these facts may increase the value of your claim and lead to higher compensation awards from insurance companies or manufacturers after a trial verdict is reached by jurors (case-by-case basis). If you have any questions regarding your injury case, contact our legal team.
