Motorcycle Accident Attorney

What should I do if I am involved in a motorcycle accident?
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is imperative that you remain at the scene. The police will need to speak to you and you may have injuries you are not aware of that should be investigated. After a motorcycle accident, you should:

  • Call the authorities to report the accident.
  • Exchange information with other drivers, passengers and witnesses.
  • Never admit fault and be careful what you say about the incident.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you believe you are unhurt.
  • File a police report as soon as possible.
  • Seek legal assistance.

Do I have a motorbike accident case?
Without speaking to an motorcycle injury attorney, it is impossible to know if you have an accident case. To improve the viability of your case, you should follow the rules for involvement in a motorcycle accident listed above and speak to legal counsel as soon as possible.

If you are injured through someone else's negligence, it is likely that you will have a good case. Speaking to an experienced attorney immediately is necessary to ensure that you follow the correct steps to gain compensation.

How do I choose a motorcycle injury attorney?
Choosing a motorcycle injury attorney can be a personalized process, but with any attorney, you should follow a few basic guidelines:

  • Choose an attorney that is experienced in handling your claim type and a wide range of personal injury claims.
  • Consider your attorney's track record; what cases have they won? Lost?
  • It might be important for your attorney to work on a contingency fee basis.
  • Look at attorneys from a wide range of places such as your local bar association and get recommendations from friends.

Can I be found at fault for my bike accident?
If you have been drinking or using drugs when you are involved in your motorcycle accident, you could be found at fault for the accident.  Additionally, riding under the influence can cause you to lose your license and greatly increases your risk of an accident.

Just as with any other motor vehicle, it is important that you follow the rules of the road. Forgetting to signal or speeding can negate your ability to make a legal claim if you are involved in an accident and might cause you to be found at fault.

What is my case worth?
The amount of money you can recover is based on a variety of factors originating from the jury's perception of a fair amount of compensation. It is important for you to speak to an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your accident so as to ensure you gain the most compensation possible from your case.

The amount of money you receive will depend on the cause of the injury, the nature and permanence of the injury and the credibility of your witnesses.

What damages can I recover?

In a personal injury lawsuit, you might be able to gain compensation for:

  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of income
  • Medical and hospitalization expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental or physical impairment
  • Loss of family member/spouse
  • Damage to motorcycle

How much will a lawyer cost?
Attorney's fees are wide-ranging and depend on your specific attorney in your specific situation.  Some lawyers work on an hourly-fee basis and will charge you a certain amount per hour spent in court and on your case.
Other attorneys offer work on a contingency fee basis meaning that they will accept a portion of your recovered damages, but you will not have to pay them if they do not win your case. You may still have to pay litigation fees.
