Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer 

Insurance companies tend to look for ways to blame the motorcyclist when they are involved in an accident. An experienced lawyer will gather all the evidence necessary to prove the other party’s fault. This includes:

  • Photos and video footage of the scene. 
  • Police and accident reports
  • Video surveillance from businesses and traffic cams, if available
  • Eyewitness statements of the crash
  • Medical records
  • An accident reconstruction expert if necessary. 

Because of their experience in dealing with insurance companies, a motorcycle accident attorney will protect you from their tactics and knows how to negotiate to get the fair amount of compensation you are owed. They will also be prepared to represent you in court if that’s what it takes.  

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Many different situations can lead to a severe motorcycle accident, but when it is a driver of a car’s fault, they most commonly involve:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Drifting into the motorcyclist’s lane or cutting them off
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Sudden and unnecessary braking 
  • Tailgating 
  • Failing to adjust for dangerous road or weather conditions
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

When a motorcyclist may be responsible for an accident:

  • Driving without proper training or licenses
  • Following too closely
  • Lane splitting
  • Failing to inspect their motorcycle or maintain them 
  • Failing to use headlights
  • Driving while impaired
  • Failure to use safety equipment, such as reflective materials, a helmet, and a face shield

In some accidents, a third party may be liable. For example, a motorcycle or parts manufacturer if a defective bike or part caused the accident, or a government agency if a poorly maintained road caused the collision.

Types of Available Compensation 

Compensation can be obtained in a motorcycle accident lawsuit in the form of “damages,” which are meant to reimburse a victim for their losses. There are many types of damages available, including:

Medical Expenses

Current and future medical costs, including hospitalizations, surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation, and any other necessary medical care. 

Lost Wages

Current and future lost income while you recover. If you cannot return to work or are forced into a different line of work, you may be able to claim diminished earning capacity. 

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for physical and psychological pain caused, including emotional distress. 

Disability

If you suffered a permanent disability as a result of the crash.

Property Damage

Repairs to or replacement costs for your motorcycle.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents commonly lead to fatalities. Surviving family members can pursue a claim for compensation when another party is at fault.
