Just because you aren’t in a car doesn’t mean that you don’t have the same rights that others do to be on the road. If you have been hurt while riding your motorcycle or while riding a bicycle, contact an attorney immediately. It may be possible to win compensation to help pay for your recovery from joint pain, muscle tears or broken bones.
How Can a Lawyer Help You After a Bike or Motorcycle Crash?
In many cases, drivers don’t look out for those on motorcycles or those who may be riding their bike on the street. In fact, drivers may not even understand that they must share the road with those on a bike. Therefore, they may not understand that they are liable for your injuries or might not take the accident seriously.
However, an attorney will make sure that the person who hurt you takes your injuries seriously and is held accountable for what he or she has done. Legal counsel will also make sure that the insurance company or others who are responsible for paying the damages take your case seriously as well.
You may be entitled to thousands or even millions of dollars in compensation from a negotiated settlement or from a jury award. Compensation may come in the form of reimbursement for medical bills or lost wages. An attorney may also ensure that you get paid for any lost earnings that may result because you can no longer work or work in the same profession.
What Will Our Firm Do to Help You With Your Case?
Our commitment is to make sure that you get the best possible outcome in your case. To make your life as easy as possible while you try to recover, your consultation may be free, and there may be no need to pay us until your case has been resolved. If you don’t win your case, you may not need to pay us at all.
An attorney from our firm may be able to work with your doctors to obtain relevant medical records and other information that may be necessary to win your case. However, it should be noted that nothing will be disclosed by any medical professional without your permission. Furthermore, nothing will be released to the public or to any other third-party without your consent.
We can also talk to witnesses, negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company of the person who hit you or directly to any responsible parties. This may expedite the process of getting a settlement and helping you pay your bills in a timely manner. If available, we will gather physical evidence such as photos, cell phone videos or copies of footage taken by traffic cameras at the time of the accident.
Why Hire a Lawyer After a Bike or Motorcycle Accident?
When compared to a car crash, those involved in a bike or motorcycle accident are more likely to be seriously injured. Injured victims may also be minors who are hurt for the rest of their lives. In addition to physical injuries, minors may be more susceptible to emotional trauma because their brains have not fully developed yet.
A younger victim may also need to pay for tutors or other specialists to help that child talk or otherwise relearn how to live a normal life. In fact, this may be true of victims of all ages. However, this cannot be done unless you are properly compensated for your injuries or the injuries that your child has suffered through no fault of his or her own.
Those who have been hurt while riding a motorcycle or riding a bike may be entitled to compensation for their injuries as well as other related costs. Remember, you generally have two years to file a personal injury suit. An attorney may be able to help you file your case in a timely manner to show the person who hurt you how serious you are about getting justice.
