Even though motorcycling is considered to be highly dangerous, the chances of getting into an accident are not any higher than they are in a car. The consequences of an accident, however, can be much greater—even if you the motorcyclist are not at fault.
We seek to represent motorcyclists who can provide a strong case for compensation from motor vehicle accidents.
Here are some of the questions we most frequently encounter about the process:
Who can claim?
As with motor vehicle or other personal injury claims, anyone with a strong case can seek compensation. If you feel as though you’ve been injured and have incurred serious physical, psychological, and financial damages as a result of the reckless behavior or negligence of someone on the road, please talk to our team of experienced lawyers. We will do our best to ensure that you receive our utmost attention, and that you are fully rewarded to the extent that the law allows.
How can I ensure that I am “fully rewarded to the extent that the law allows”?
Good question. One of the main staples of a solid personal injury claim—and one that applies in particular to motorcycle accidents—is the ability to prove fault.
Police reports, images, testimonies, and traffic laws will all help support your case and relieve you of the burden of responsibility for an accident, but one of the best things you can do as a motorcyclist is dress safely. Aside from the obvious benefits to your health of wearing protective clothing while biking, these articles also serve to prove your legitimacy in the vent that you are struck by another car and injured.
If your claim goes to court, and you were not wearing a helmet or other safety features while on your motorcycle, the compensation package you receive will most likely be diminished.
Here are a few basic articles of protective equipment that we recommend wearing while motorcycling in order to help ensure you get full compensation should you be struck by a reckless driver:
That’s why we want to help you receive compensation for injuries incurred in an accident that you didn’t cause. Motorcyclists are disproportionately injured in motor vehicle accidents since they are not as well protected as drivers in cars, and yet they often are the victims of someone else’s reckless driving.
