Motorcyclists have just as much right to the road and to ensure their safety, other motorists need to be vigilant and take proper precautions. Often other drivers can be negligent of motorcycles, causing terrible accidents resulting in damage to property, severely disabling injuries and even, in some cases, death. Failing to yield, failing to stop at a red light, and reckless driving can lead to these accidents. If another driver is at fault, and caused the accident, you may be entitled to compensation. If you or a loved one has been injured, severely disabled or suffered fatal injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident, it may be in your best interest to speak with a motorcycle accident lawyer.
Motorcycle accidents are traumatic—and expensive. Even if you are wearing a helmet and following all safety laws, accidents can happen. The first thing to do after an accident is seek medical attention immediately. There may be injuries you’ve suffered of which you are unaware. The stress and extreme circumstances can cause some people to go into shock. After you’ve received medical care, you will want to look into hiring a motorcycle accident attorney.

After a free initial legal consultation, our motorcycle accident attorney will gather evidence to prove your case. An experienced attorney who has handled these cases in the past will be able to negotiate a fair settlement from the insurance company. Sometimes people make a mistake in attempting to deal with insurance companies directly. They often end up accepting a small compensation that may cover some costs, and never consider future medical expenses or lost wages if you can no longer work because of your injury.
Medical costs after a serious injury can be huge and amass quickly. Hospital stays, emergency services, medication and doctor’s visits as well as physical therapy can all be very expensive, and may be necessary for recovery. The medical costs of an accident are only one aspect of the cost of your accident. When you’re injured and you miss time at work, your lost time and wages can result in difficulty paying other everyday expenses. You could benefit from speaking with a motorcycle accident lawyer to make sure that you receive a fair compensation that will allow you to move on after your accident.
It is important to remember that injury claims, including motorcycle collisions, are governed by a Statute of Limitations which limits the time you have to file your claim. You must act quickly to consult an injury attorney and protect your rights.
