Ways a Lawyer Can Help

After an accident, it is important to seek medical attention for your injuries, file a police report, and contact a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer immediately. It’s important to avoid posting about your accident on social media and talking to insurance adjusters until you get legal advice.

Using an attorney can help get you the compensation you deserve for your motorcycle accident injuries. An attorney can do the following to help with your case:

Determine liability.

Icy road conditions can be the cause of the accident, but determining who is liable can often be a challenge. An experienced attorney can help establish who’s responsible and prove if the state or local municipality was aware of the icy road conditions and did not care for the roads properly. A lawyer can also determine if another driver acted negligently and caused the crash.

Gather evidence.

An attorney can contact witnesses, gather medical information, and get the evidence needed for your case.

Negotiate with insurance companies.

Insurance companies will try to settle your case for the least amount of money possible and may attempt to place blame on you as a biker. An attorney will negotiate with insurance companies to ensure you get the full amount of compensation possible.

Calculate what your case is worth.

An attorney will calculate the damages from your accident to determine what your case it worth, so you get a fair settlement.

Represent you.

Many bikers are blamed for accidents that happen in the winter even if the accident was not their fault. An attorney will represent your best interests to avoid “biker bias” by jurors if your case goes to court.

You may be able to recover the following damages for your motorcycle accident injuries:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • On-going medical care and rehabilitation
  • Loss of past, present, and future income earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Wrongful death of a loved one if the accident resulted in a fatality
