Thousands of motorcycle riders are killed or injured each year in accidents in the United States. Motorcyclists face unique risks on the road and deserve to have their rights protected after an accident—when compared to car accidents, motorcyclists are almost 29 times as likely to be killed in an accident and nearly 5 times as likely to be injured. When motorcyclists are hit by an automobile, the accident is most commonly caused by the automobile driver not paying appropriate attention to the motorcycle rider.
A personal injury lawsuit can help you recover after you've been in a motorcycle accident. In many states, filing a lawsuit can help you pay for medical bills and lost wages due to the injuries you suffered in the crash. The Kishish Law Group's experienced attorneys will work with you to determine whether filing a lawsuit is right for you and help you build your case.
Talk to us first. Don't trust the other person's insurance company. They want to settle quickly for less than what your case may be worth. We'll work to get you the largest recovery possible for your case. File a lawsuit and send a message to automobile drivers that they must share the road with motorcyclists.
What should I do after I've been in a motorcycle accident?
Seek medical attention. More than 80% of motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the rider. Because injuries sustained in an accident might not be obvious, it's important to have your injuries seen by a medical professional. Any injury, especially head injuries, can be more serious than they look. Seeing a doctor will also help in building your case by creating reliable documents of your injuries as they relate to your crash.
If you or another person are able, documenting the accident may be helpful. As with car accidents, taking pictures of the accident and where it occurred, talking to people who may have witnessed the accident, and getting basic information from everyone involved can help in bolstering your case. This FindLaw pamphlet has a list of some preliminary steps you can take after being involved in an accident.
When should I contact a motorcycle accident lawyer?
As soon as you are able, you should contact a lawyer. There are a few reasons to call a motorcycle accident lawyer right away:
- Insurance companies representing the other people involved in the accident will want to try to get you to settle for less than what your case is worth. Getting a lawyer on your side as soon as possible is crucial to make sure that your interests are well represented. An experienced lawyer will make sure that you get the most money you can for your injuries and suffering.
- Many states have statutes of limitations on personal injury cases that range from 1–3 years. As out-of-court negotiations can take a lot of time, contacting a lawyer early on will preserve your right to sue if you can't reach a settlement.
- Early contact with a lawyer makes building your case easier. Concrete evidence is usually easier to collect soon after an accident, which may make or break your case. A better case may also increase the amount of compensation you ultimately receive.
How much is my case worth?
The amount your motorcycle accident case is worth is dependent on your individual situation and the laws of your state. The extent of your injuries and how you respond to your injuries will largely determine how much you can be compensated in a lawsuit. Once we know the facts of your case, we may be able to give you an estimate on what you'll be able to recover.
Do I have a motorcycle accident lawsuit?
Whether you have a motorcycle accident lawsuit will first depend on whether you can recover the costs of your injuries through the other person's insurance company. If you cannot, you may be able to sue the driver of the other vehicle for damages if you can prove fault. Because motorcycle insurance laws may be different than car insurance laws in your state, it is important to contact a qualified lawyer to assess your case.
That's where the Kishish Law Group can help. We'll walk you through the legal process and make sure that you take the steps to get the compensation that you deserve.
