How Can a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Help My Case?
Insurance companies that represent at-fault parties tend to be biased against motorcyclists and will likely look for ways to blame you for the accident. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney will ensure you have a solid claim by gathering concrete evidence to prove the other driver’s fault. That can include:
Any available video surveillance footage from traffic cameras or businesses located near the scene
Photographic evidence from the crash site
Records of lost income and pain and suffering
When it comes time to negotiate a settlement with the insurer, having an attorney represent you will solidify the potential threat of a lawsuit. As a result, the chances of you settling for fair compensation significantly increase.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Many different acts of negligence can lead to motorcycle accidents. The leading causes are:
Failing to inspect motorcycles and maintain them regularly
Failure to use safety equipment, such as reflective materials, a helmet, and a face shield
Motorists that drift into the motorcyclist’s lane or cut them off
Tailgating or failing to leave enough room between vehicles
Dangerous road or weather conditions
Failure to use headlights
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Manufacturing defects in automotive parts
Driving without proper training or a license
Types of Available Compensation
There are many types of compensation available after a motorcycle accident to help with losses, including:
Current and future medical costs, including hospitalizations, surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation, and any other necessary medical care.
Current and future income that you will lose while recovering. You may also be able to claim diminished earning capacity if you cannot make the same amount of income you did before the accident.
Pain and Suffering
Compensation for physical and mental pain, as well as emotional distress.
Reimbursement for repairs to or the replacement of your motorcycle.
Loss of Consortium
Compensation for a spouse’s loss of companionship and affection
If a motorcycle accident is fatal, surviving loved ones can pursue a claim for compensation from the at-fault party for funeral and burial expenses, lost income, loss of companionship, and more.
