How shunnarah Attorneys Help Motorcycle accident Clients

Our attorneys are legal specialists with expertise that makes a big difference when it comes to achieving successful legal outcomes. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, our legal teams can also provide you with the following services:

Investigation and liability assessment 

Our team meticulously investigates your accident, gathering crucial evidence and establishing all avenues of liability for your case. 

Because motorcycle accidents frequently result in significant injuries, you may not be able to obtain initial evidence on your own. If possible, obtain as much information as you can. The following is the most crucial information for your motorcycle accident claim: 

  • Photos of the accident scene, all vehicles, and visible injuries 
  • Police report 
  • Information about the other driver: Car insurance company, license plate number, details on the driver’s license, and so on. 
  • Information about any witnesses or passengers, including their names and phone numbers 
  • Is there any pertinent information regarding the road (was it icy or wet? Was anything nearby?) 

Proving liability is one of the most critical aspects of motorcycle accident claims. It is essential to compile evidence to prove that the other motorist, or another entity, was at fault. Between rules, regulations, laws, and the fine print, determining and proving liability on your own can be difficult. This is when having an experienced legal team with ample resources really comes into play.  

Attorneys specializing in motorcycle accidents assess and prove fault through many forms of data, including, but not limited to traffic law infractions, the extent of property damage, the collision type, police reports, and accident reconstructionists. Your attorney will have access to these vital pieces of evidence – evidence crucial to forming and building a case to maximize your compensation. 

Calculating damages and compensation  

Every motorcycle accident case is unique, and so are the factors that affect your fair compensation. Our attorneys expertly calculate damages, ensuring you are adequately paid for property loss, medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and more. We also explore the potential for punitive damages, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, and wrongful death claims where applicable. 

Negotiating with Insurance Companies 

Securing the compensation you deserve after a motorcycle accident is a crucial step in your recovery journey. Our attorneys understand that insurance companies often initially offer minimal compensation. Their strategy typically involves lowball settlement offers, aiming to minimize their payout for injury claims. However, with a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer from Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys by your side, you are positioned to counter these tactics effectively.  

As we enter negotiations, our legal team ensures that you are aware of all offers and advises you on the fairness of each proposal. It is common for these cases to be resolved through negotiation, avoiding the need for a trial. However, if the insurance company fails to present a reasonable offer, our attorneys are fully prepared to take your case to court. 

This approach underscores the importance of selecting a motorcycle attorney who is experienced in negotiation and unflinching in their willingness to pursue justice in court if necessary.

At Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys, we commit to fighting relentlessly for maximum compensation, ensuring your rights and interests are forefront throughout the legal process. 

What Can You Be Compensated for After A Motorcycle Accident?

Each motorcycle accident is unique, bringing its own set of challenges and impacts. As experienced motorcycle accident lawyers, we recognize the diverse nature of damages and the varying amounts of compensation that may be involved.

Calculating these damages accurately is essential to ensuring you receive justice for how the accident affected your life. Below is an overview of the types of damages for which you may receive compensation following a motorcycle accident: 

Property loss

Often, motorcycle accidents result in significant property damage. Our attorneys assist in claiming expenses for repairing or replacing your motorcycle and any personal items damaged in the accident. If repairs cost more than the motorcycle’s value, we will work to ensure the insurance company pays its fair market value, recognizing it as a total loss. 

Medical expenses

Motorcycle accidents can lead to substantial medical costs. We help you claim compensation for all medical-related expenses, including ambulance fees, hospital stays, doctor visits, medication, surgeries, and any ongoing medical care required because of the accident. 

Lost wages

Injuries from motorcycle accidents might prevent you from working. Our team ensures that you are compensated for lost wages, including time taken off for rest, medical appointments, rehabilitation, and any work missed due to the injury. 

Pain and suffering

The physical and emotional distress following a motorcycle accident is compensable. Calculating a fair amount for pain and suffering, which can include everything from the physical pain of broken bones to the emotional trauma of the accident, is a complex process that our skilled motorcycle attorneys navigate with expertise. 

Punitive damages

In cases where the at-fault party’s actions were especially harmful, punitive damages may be pursued. These are additional compensations aimed at financially penalizing the at-fault individual, serving as a deterrent for future negligence or intentional harm. 

Loss of enjoyment

If the accident has impaired your ability to engage in activities you once enjoyed, compensation for loss of enjoyment can be claimed. This acknowledges the impact of the accident on your quality of life. 

Loss of consortium

This type of compensation is relevant for the loved ones of a motorcycle accident victim. If the accident results in fatal or severe injuries that affect marital or familial relationships, immediate family members or spouses may be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium. 

Wrongful death

In the tragic event that a motorcycle driver or passenger dies due to an accident, our attorneys assist the victim’s family in filing a wrongful death lawsuit against responsible parties. 

As your motorcycle accident attorneys, we are committed to thoroughly assessing and advocating for the full scope of compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accident Cases

How much a lawyer with motorcycle accident experience cost?

Many personal injury legal firms, including your motorcycle accident attorney at Alexander Shunnarah, operate on a contingency fee basis. This means they will take your motorcycle accident case without charging you anything upfront. They will only deduct a percentage of your settlement for legal fees once they have obtained the sum you deserve.

This means you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries while your legal team fights for the reimbursement you deserve. Like most reputable personal injury legal offices, our firm also provides no-cost consultations, so calling us is risk and commitment-free.

Do I have to go to trial for a motorcycle accident lawsuit?

Motorcycle accident lawsuits usually settle before going to trial. An experienced attorney negotiates with the insurance company to settle without going to trial, so you can get your compensation quicker without the hassle of going to court.

That said, you should choose a trial-experienced motorcycle crash attorney willing to go to court if needed. When the insurance company refuses to pay adequate compensation, you deserve an attorney who will not settle for less than you deserve.

What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents are frequently caused by the negligence of another motorist. The following are some of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents:

– Negligent drivers – failed to see the motorcycle, failed to yield, and so on.

– Blind Spots

– Poor road conditions

– Inclement weather

– Drunk Driving

– Road Hazards

– Motorcycle manufacturer defect

– Reckless behavior- driving over the speed limit, doing tricks, etc.

As previously stated, motorcycle accidents frequently result in significant injuries. This is why it is critical to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to hold the at-fault party accountable.

Does not wearing a helmet affect my motorcycle accident case?

This is an excellent question. Wearing a helmet could mean the difference between life and death for a motorcycle rider, as well as the amount of compensation you receive. You may be held liable for some of your injuries if you are involved in a motorcycle accident without wearing a helmet and suffer a head injury or traumatic brain damage.

For example, if you were riding without a motorcycle helmet and a vehicle hit you while texting, you could be held partially liable for any injuries that could have been avoided if you had worn a helmet.

Helmets save lives and make motorcycle accident claims more straightforward.
