If you are suffering from severe physical injuries from a motorcycle accident that wasn't your fault, an injury lawyer should be called. If you have debilitating pain and had life-threatening injuries, along with road rash or cosmetic disfiguration, you need to see what your options are.
The expenses may be overwhelming, especially while you try to heal and you are out of employment. Meeting with the lawyer will be the step you need to take to try to get financial compensation. Discuss all these events and problems with the lawyer in detail.
Events Leading Up to the Accident
If a vehicle pulled out and didn't see you, wasn't paying attention and drove you off the road, or just hit you because of a driving error, these are all faults that aren't yours. You want your lawyer to understand how the accident occurred, understand that it wasn't your fault, and get the evidence needed for the case.
Your evidence can include other eyewitness accounts of the accident, pictures of how your bike was stuck under the vehicle, or videos from other vehicle dashcams and streetlights of businesses. How the officers cited the accident is also important.
Compensation Details to Include
The injury and medical bills aren't the only expenses that you will have to overcome. Other financial strains include the following:
- Motorcycle repair bills or loan still owned on the bike
- Loss of work wages
- Trying to pay bills and living expenses without money and enduring late fees
- Months or longer of therapy
You won't just have immediate financial losses, but the accident can affect your pockets for years to come. Work with a lawyer to get the compensation you need to pay what is due now and to set you up for the future strains if you won't be able to return to work ever.
Don't let the insurance companies ignore your claims or think that you don't have a chance to get compensation when an automobile struck you on your motorcycle, and they were 100 percent to blame for the accident because they were driving negligently. Instead, take the time to meet with a lawyer to see whether you should pursue legal action to get compensation for the injuries that are you dealing with and to help provide if you have problems that you will deal for the rest of your life because of what happened that day when you were out for a ride.
