Collecting Motorcycle Accident Damages

Posted May 21, 2018 in Uncategorized

If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, or have lost a loved one, consider contacting a motorcycle attorney,  like a Canoga Park motorcycle accident lawyer.

 

You may be entitled to receive financial compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other losses. The legal team can help you pursue a claim against the at-fault driver who caused the accident.

 

Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

 

Driving a motorcycle is more dangerous than driving other types of vehicles because there is nothing to protect the motorcyclist in the event of an accident. This is why motorcycle accident injuries are often so severe and require such a long recovery time. Some of the more common actions of the other vehicle’s driver that causes motorcycle accidents include:

 

  •        Engaging in cell phone use or other distracted driving behaviors
  •        Speeding
  •        Disobeying traffic laws
  •        Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  •        Speeding
  •        Failure to check vehicle blind spots for motorcycles

 

Pursuing a Claim

 

As mentioned above, the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often more severe than in other vehicle accidents because of the lack of protection. One of the most common – and dangerous – injuries a motorcycle accident victim can suffer is a head injury. Even motorcyclists who wear helmets can still suffer a serious brain injury or even a fatal one. Other injuries that motorcycle accident victims are more susceptible to are bone fractures, damage to the spinal cord, and amputations.

 

Many motorcycle victims end up permanently disabled from their injuries and their quality of life can be greatly impacted. They continue to have serious and ongoing health issues from their injuries, as well as suffer emotional trauma from the accident. In addition to all the physical issues, victims often suffer great financial trauma, as well.

 

Letting a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Handle Your Claim

 

When you retain the services of a seasoned motorcycle accident attorney, they will examine all the details of your case. We will carefully go over all the evidence of the crash in order to build a strong case against the other driver. If necessary, we will arrange a reconstruction of the accident to prove the other driver was at fault.

 

Our next step will be determining how much compensation you are entitled to for all the losses your injuries have caused. If necessary, we will utilize the services of economic and forensic experts in order to determine what your future and lifetime losses will be.

 

If you would like to discuss your case in more detail with one of our motorcycle accident attorneys, please call in order to set up a confidential and free case evaluation.
