Why Should I Hire a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
Many injuries after a motorcycle accident can be life-changing. You could be out of work for months while you recover from the accident, missing out on wages from your job and racking up endless medical expenses. You're entitled to receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and any other damages you incurred from the accident.
In order to prove the negligence of the other driver, you'll need a lot of evidence. Unfortunately, this evidence is often altered or lost to cover up the proof of negligence. If there was a surveillance or dash camera in the area that recorded your crash, the footage may be erased before you're able to get a copy of it. It'll be more challenging to recover fair compensation without strong evidence.
There are also certain deadlines you need to abide by when filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in many states. If too much time passes, your case may be dismissed.
Different states also have various laws when it comes to motorcyclists wearing helmets. In California, all riders must wear a helmet at all times. However, in other states, there are no motorcycle helmet laws. A qualified attorney will be well-versed in the helmet laws of your specific state.
Our team of motorcycle accident attorneys will guide you through the process of filing an accident claim. We're well versed with every step that needs to be taken and will ensure no mistakes are made. Don't hesitate to contact our office to get your motorcycle accident claim started.
How to Prove Liability and Negligence After a Motorcycle Accident
Our goal is to prove that the other driver breached a duty of care that they owe to you and other drivers, and show that their negligence contributed to your injuries. Duty of care means that motorists on the road are expected to ensure that they're operating their vehicles in a safe manner. If they knowingly take certain actions that could potentially harm other drivers on the road, they're breaching that duty. Some examples of negligence by drivers are:
- Breaking the speed limit
- Driving while distracted
- Making left turns without looking for other cars
- Making unsafe lane changes
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
The evidence needed in your case to prove the other driver's negligence will depend upon the cause of your motorcycle accident. If the other driver was under the influence of alcohol, your attorney may use pictures of the collision scene, the police report, witness testimony, toxicology reports, and dashcam footage to prove your motorcycle accident case.
Our expert legal team will know what evidence is necessary to prove your case. We'll start investigating immediately, gathering evidence, and speaking to eyewitnesses. We'll build a strong case to present before we start the negotiating process.
What Types of Damages Can I Claim?
You have rights if you or your loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident. You can seek compensation from the other driver, the manufacturer of the motorcycle, and/or another party. An expert attorney will help you obtain the full amount of compensation you deserve. You can seek compensation for the following damages:
- Medical Bills: Previous and upcoming medical expenses, including doctor's appointments, surgeries, travel expenses, prescription drugs, and rehabilitation
- Lost Wages: All or most of your lost wages from missing work due to medical appointments and/or recovery time, in addition to lost future wages if you're disabled
- Punitive Damages: You can also seek punitive damages to punish the opposing party for their negligence
- Noneconomic Damages: Compensation for suffering, pain, anguish, distress, and trauma
There is no way for a motorcycle attorney to predict the total amount of compensation you'll receive after your claim. It depends on the circumstances of your losses and the accident itself. During your free consultation with Alpha Accident Lawyers, we'll give you an estimation of the value of your motorcycle accident claim. Our team will review the details of your case, calculate your total losses, and offer counsel on how we should proceed.
