Investigating the Cause of Your Crash
Understanding the cause of your motorcycle accident is critical. Through an investigation using our legal knowledge and often the assistance of accident reconstruction experts, we will build the most convincing case as to why the other involved parties are legally responsible for your injuries.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drivers turning left in front of approaching motorcycles
- Drivers tailgating motorcycles
- Drivers changing lanes without checking or signaling
- Drivers using their smartphones behind the wheel
There can be a bias that motorcyclists are reckless or more to blame for accidents, but often it is the conduct of motorists that is the root cause of motorcycle accidents. Our firm has over 40 years of experience in overcoming these biases and prevailing.
Severe Injuries Caused in Motorcycle Accidents
It is common for a motorcyclist to suffer life-changing or severe injuries in a wreck because the only thing protecting them was their helmet and possibly their articles of clothing.
Motorcyclists often suffer these severe injuries in a crash:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Bone breaks
- Internal organ damage
- Soft tissue damage, such as muscle and ligament damage
The medical care needed to treat these injuries can be extensive and expensive. That is why you need a trusted and experienced legal representative to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries, including for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
What Kind of Compensation Can You Receive After a Motorcycle Accident?
Following your accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the following damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses (including medications, surgery, hospital stays, etc.)
- Lost income from missed work
- Lost earning capacity (if your injuries are so severe that they prevent you from returning to work)
- Emotional damages including: loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, etc.
If you have lost a loved one in fatal motorcycle accident, you most likely have grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim, which can help cover additional expenses including funeral and burial costs.
