Why You Should Hire Us in a Motorcycle Accident Case

Were you injured in a motorcycle accident because of another person’s negligence?

Receive compensation, consult with an attorney about your case. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another person, it is very important that you contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney immediately. Motorcycle riders are the most affected after these accidents because at the moment of impact there is no structure to protect them from the impact and they often have very serious or sometimes fatal injuries. After having an accident, many questions and doubts arise, such as:
  • Who will pay for the medical expenses?
  • What if my loved one does not fully recover from his or her injuries?
  • What happens if the guilty person says he or she is not to blame?
  • What will happen to my work?
These and other questions are frequently asked by our clients who are affected by these types of cases. In a motorcycle accident, injuries can include hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical treatment and lost wages. Sometimes our clients do not fully recover from injuries that may last a lifetime or limit the type of life they have. It is at this time that an experienced motorcycle accident attorney is required to claim full compensation for the losses you have suffered and will suffer in the future.

What to do after a motorcycle accident?

According to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4586 people were killed in a motorcycle accident in 2014 and in 2015 that number increased by 10% to more than 5000 people according to Consumer Reports. We know that the injuries from these types of accidents are often very severe and affect the victims after the accident. It is important to consider the following tips:
  • Seek medical help. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, it is best to seek immediate medical help for everyone who has been hit. Even if there are no serious or highly visible injuries, it is best to have a doctor’s appointment to prevent these injuries from getting worse.
  • Take pictures. Documenting an accident can be used as evidence to find out who is primarily responsible for a collision. Taking pictures of the condition of the motorcycle and the other vehicle will help determine the causes of the accident.
  • Get legal help. Contacting an experienced accident attorney will let you know the best options you have for getting compensation for the accident, especially if you were seriously injured as a result of the accident.
  • Take notes. Writing down everything you remember about how the accident happened as soon as possible after it happened will help you not to forget or allow fuzzy memories to become confusing. Also make notes about any injuries you have, where on your body you have them, how they feel, and how they progress over the days after the accident.
  • Ask for information from witnesses. Ask the people who witnessed the accident for their information – name, phone number and a brief account of what they witnessed.
  • Do not declare or sign anything. Many insurers (including your own) can take advantage of the time after an accident to take statements that are still confusing because of the impact or emotional shock you experienced. Be careful not to declare anything or sign documents, especially if they are compensation agreements, as it will be virtually impossible to reverse them afterwards.

You are entitled to compensation for your personal injuries after an accident

Insurance companies will always try to offer less compensation, and it is important to calculate whether this amount will cover all these damages. In the event of death, the family will have to claim compensation for loss of companionship or association, especially if the victim was the breadwinner of the house. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, you are entitled to compensation for:
  • Past and future medical expenses (including consultations, medicines, treatments, surgeries, and therapies)
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property Damage
  • Decrease in the value of your motorcycle
  • Loss of use of the motorcycle
  • Renting a temporary vehicle while the vehicle is under repair

Motorcyclists are less unprotected than car or truck drivers, because even though they have a helmet, it is not enough protection to prevent them from suffering severe injuries, even to the head, but mostly to the back or extremities.

What are the common causes of a motorcycle accident?

The causes of motorcycle accidents can vary depending on the conditions in which they occur and the vehicles involved.

Cars turning left

One of the most dangerous events for motorcyclists happens when cars (or other large vehicle) turn left on a street. This situation alone accounts for 42% of all accidents between a motorcycle and a car. This happens when:
  • Motorcycle drives straight into an intersection
  • The motorcyclist drives very close to another car
  • The rider tries to pass another rider

Motorcyclists in frontal collisions

56% of motorcyclists die in an accident between motorcycles and another vehicle. In 78% of these accidents, the car usually hits the motorcycle from the front, and only 5% are hit from the rear. Head-on accidents often end in fatal consequences for motorcyclists.

Motorcyclists driving over the lane division

In these types of accidents, motorcyclists often drive between two lanes of cars, usually when traffic is heavy and vehicles are slow or stopped; and while this is a common scenario, it is at these times that most motorcyclist accidents happen.
  • Motorcycles drive very close to other vehicles
  • They are too small spaces to drive safely
  • Most drivers don’t expect someone to drive between lanes

Motorcyclists who drive at high speeds under the influence of alcohol

About half of all motorcycle accidents are due to motorcyclists driving at high speeds or under the influence of drugs. Although these causes also occur in car accidents, they are often fatal to motorcyclists due to the lack of protection available to them.

Dangers on the road

Motorcyclists often suffer more on the road than other drivers due to various circumstances such as:
  • The size of your vehicle and its poor stability
  • Potholes
  • Slippery pavement
  • Dead animals left on the road
  • Different heights between rails
  • Other irregularities along the way
They should therefore be more careful not to have solitary accidents or collisions with other vehicles.
