Do I have a case?
A motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. The first thing most clients think about is the number of medical bills and other damages they’re facing. How can you pay your medical bills if it is going to take you weeks to heal? We investigate your accident thoroughly to determine if you have a case. Georgia is an at-fault state, so we’ll need to prove that another party was responsible for your case. To do this, we will:
- – Review all accident reports.
- – Investigate the scene of your accident, your motorcycle, and any other vehicles involved.
- – Look at all the evidence of the accident, including tire marks, blood transfers, pavement scrapes, clothing scuffs, yaw marks, and broken parts.
- – Collect interviews from all the witnesses and parties involved.
- – Gather video and photographic evidence of the scene.
- – Recreate the accident.
- – Hire expert witnesses when necessary
Our team makes sure to recreate the accident to compare the information that we gathered. We need to know what happened before, during, and after the accident. The evidence we collect will strengthen your claim and your case. It’s essential that you get the proper settlement for your current and future injuries and damages.
An experienced motorcycle accident attorney will know the difference between a cruiser, touring bike, and a sports bike. Not all motorcycle lawyers are experienced. It would be best if you had someone that can give a proper valuation for your motorcycle. If someone doesn’t understand the differences between these bikes, you should keep looking for your lawyer.
What types of injuries to victims of motorcycle accidents have?
Motorcycles are smaller than any other vehicle on the road. So, whether it is a car or a tractor-trailer that causes the accident, there are generally severe injuries. Some of these complex injuries can include:
- – Broken Bones
- – Spinal Cord Injuries
- – Traumatic Brain Injuries
- – Burns
- – Road Rash
- – Internal Injuries
- – Paralysis
- – Amputations
- – Death
Most vehicles that cause these injuries admit that they never saw the motorcycle. All cars must share the road, regardless of their size. So, motorists should look for motorcycles when they are traveling to their destinations. If you have been in a motorcycle accident because of the negligence of someone else, you could be eligible for compensation. Contact us today to discuss the details of your case.
What are some causes of motorcycle accidents?
As we’ve mentioned before, several motorcycle accidents occur because other vehicles weren’t paying attention. Accidents can also happen because motorists weren’t obeying traffic laws. Some of these instances could be:
- – Speeding
- – Distracted driving
- – Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- – Driving while tried
- – Driving aggressively
Hazards on the road can also cause motorcycle accidents. Debris on the road can affect a motorcycle much differently than a car. For example, if there is gravel on the road, a vehicle might temporarily lose control where a motorcycle will never regain control. If a contractor is responsible for the debris that caused your accident, we can file a claim against them for damages.
What are your rights?
In Georgia, you have the right to seek compensation if your accident was because of the negligence of someone else. You can request a settlement that will cover your medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning potential, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
Personal injury lawsuits are complicated, which is why we recommend hiring legal counsel. There are too many details in these cases, and you don’t need to risk your settlement. You should be focused on healing, instead of worrying about how you are going to pay for your medical bills.
How do you calculate damages?
Your motorcycle accident attorney should be experienced in evaluating all of your damages. Some items, like medical bills, are easy to value. While others, like pain and suffering, will be harder to set a value. Thankfully, experienced motorcycle accident lawyers have years of experience evaluating damages. We can give you an idea of a proper settlement once you come into our offices. The sooner you come into our office, the stronger your case will be.
Lost wages are also easy to determine, but the loss of potential wages can be more difficult. It would help if you had an expert in your corner that can fight for your interests. We can help you through every step of your case.
