Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries. A motorcyclist has nothing to soften the blow of a collision; therefore, injuries obtained in a motorcycle accident can be more extensive than if the driver were in a car. To make matters worse, motorcycle insurance is not usually as comprehensive as automobile insurance and might not include medical payment coverage. Our motorcycle accident attorneys are experienced in dealing with accidents with high medical bills and serious injuries. We uncover all available liability insurance and negotiate reductions in medical expenses with hospitals and surgeons to get you a fair settlement.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I hire a motorcycle accident attorney?

You should hire a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney sooner will ensure that witnesses and other evidence is preserved. In addition, our attorneys can obtain police reports, ensure proper documentation and treatment of injuries, and handle communications with insurance adjusters. Waiting to hire a motorcycle accident attorney can hurt your case.

How much is my motorcycle accident case worth?

The value of a motorcycle accident case is based on the amount of medical bills incurred, the amount of wages lost, and the nature of your injuries. Other factors might impact your recovery such as whether the negligent driver was insured or the extent of the negligent driver’s insurance.

How much does it cost to hire a motorcycle accident attorney?

Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney does not cost you anything up front. Instead, motorcycle accident attorneys are paid a percentage of the settlement funds when the case is closed.

What are common types of motorcycle accident injuries?

Motorcycle accident injuries are often severe. The most common types of motorcycle injuries are listed below.

Head Injury
Serious injuries to the head can cause life-transforming results or even be life-threatening. When the brain swells past the barriers of the skull, trouble is sure to follow. The most common injury sustained from a motorcycle accident is a head injury. Concussions and even brain damage are a few serious head injuries after a motorcycle accident.

Neck Injury
A neck injury is also a common serious motorcycle accident injury. Like the head, a neck injury can often become fatal or life-changing. A neck injury can paralyze the victim or even kill them. Protecting the neck and head by wearing a motorcycle helmet is the best thing you can do.

Leg Injury
Usually, a leg injury following a motorcycle accident results in a broken bone. Though bones can heal, a serious leg injury that goes undetected can be life-threatening. The injury could grow into something worse or permanently disabling. Injuries such as shattered or fractured bones or knees can possibly be prevented if the motorcyclist wears protective leather clothing over his or her legs.

Arm Injury
When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, it is human instinct to draw one’s arms around or in front of oneself to lessen the impact. Doing this however means greater impact and more damage to the nerves of the arms. When a motorcyclist lands on their arm, permanent nerve damage may occur in the arm or upper body. To prevent this, sturdy jackets and elbow pads should be worn by the motorcyclist to protect against severe damage.

Road Rash
When a rider slides across the pavement after a motorcycle accident, the injury sustained is known as road rash. If the clothing is thin enough, the pavement can scrape away through layers of clothes reaching the skin and tearing it apart. Road rash is not just a simple scrape or cut. Permanent damage such as skin irritations, infections, and even surface nerve damage can occur from road rash injuries.

Muscle Damage
Any part of the body can be exposed to muscle damage following a motorcycle accident. Some muscle damage from a motorcycle accident can even become permanently damaged. To protect yourself on a motorcycle, wear proper protection such as a helmet, heavy clothing, and proper footwear. Another thing you can do to protect yourself is to drive defensively to avoid a motorcycle accident.

An attorney knows how much your case is worth, which is invaluable in negotiations with an insurance company. In fact, one insurance company’s own internal study showed that it paid five times more money to people who hire an attorney.

An Attorney Will Maximize the Value of Your Claim

An attorney can get you more money in your pocket by investigating and exploring insurance coverage available to compensate you for your injuries, recommending health care providers who diagnose and treat common accident injuries, and negotiating discounts with health insurers who seek subrogation.
