Strong Advocacy For Motorcycle Wrecks
Were you hurt in a motorcycle crash and need a lawyer? Many motorcycle wrecks are not the fault of the rider, but rather are the fault of negligent truck and passenger vehicle drivers who fail to exercise due care in the presence of motorcycles. Unfortunately, the motorcyclists involved in these auto accidents are significantly more likely to be seriously injured or killed than the negligent passenger vehicle drivers. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, call The Law Office of Christopher Jackson today for a free case evaluation.
Do I Need A Lawyer?
If you have been harmed in a crash, do not attempt to negotiate with at-fault parties and their insurance providers. The attorneys at The Law Office of Christopher Jackson have helped countless Kentucky and Ohio residents recover from their injuries and hold at-fault parties responsible.
Motorcycles have the same privileges and obligations as other vehicles on the roadways. However, many drivers still fail to acknowledge motorcyclists’ rights, and such failure is a frequent cause of motorcycle accidents. In fact, most motorcycle accidents are the result of a car or truck driver’s failure to respect a motorcyclist’s right of way, making it impossible for the motorcyclist to avoid a costly collision.
Experienced Accident Attorneys
In order to establish fault and help our clients obtain maximum damages in motorcycle accident personal injury claims, our attorneys use their expansive knowledge of the law and often call upon top motorcycle accident experts to reconstruct the events leading up to the accident.
Due to our vast experience, we are able to overcome many of the misconceptions about motorcycle accident lawsuits that can otherwise lead victims to receive less than the full amount of compensation to which they are entitled.
Who Is At Fault?
While many non-motorcyclists view motorcycle riders as risk-taking daredevils out on the road, the truth is that most motorcycle accidents are caused by everyone but the motorcyclist. If you have been harmed in a crash, but do not know who is at fault, it is vital that you understand the most common responsible parties and how they frequently cause crashes.
- Drivers — Intoxicated or distracted driving, breaking road laws, making turns or changing lanes recklessly, and ignoring the safety of motorcyclists on the road
- Motorcycle manufacturers — Creating motorcycles or motorcycle parts with design or manufacturing defects that caused the vehicle to fail on the road
- Government organizations — In charge of road design and maintenance, which can be broken or contain dangerous features that result in an accident
It may be that more than one of these parties contributed to your crash, but only by collecting thorough evidence and accurate witness testimony can you be completely sure that you have what you need for a successful legal case.
Losses And Injuries
Even the well-equipped motorcyclists can suffer devastating injuries in a crash. This is because, unlike car occupants, the bodies of motorcyclists can be directly impacted by a crash, such as being hit by a car or thrown into a hazard. As such, an injured motorcyclist can suffer many different injuries and related losses, including:
- Permanent disabilities — These include brain damage, spinal cord injuries, loss of limbs and more injuries that can never fully heal.
- Medical bills — Extensive treatments, including surgery, hospital stays, medication and rehabilitation, may be needed, but can cost thousands and thousands of dollars.
- Loss of employment — Being severely injured will cause most motorcyclists to be unable to work for an extended period of time, leading to thousands of dollars in income lost.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, you need to document all losses you have experienced and collect evidence to tie them to the accident for the success of your case.
How Can I Recover My Losses From A Motorcycle Wreck?
Anyone injured in a motorcycle crash caused by another person, group or organization can hold those at-fault parties responsible for the accident and its various effects. Through a legal claim against the person who caused your crash and his or her insurance provider, you can present evidence that proves how the accident happened, who caused it and how you were harmed.
A successful case means that you are entitled to receive compensation from the people who harmed you and their insurance providers. By illustrating the extent of your losses and proving how much you should be paid, you can receive compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages while being unable to work, the emotional toll of pain and suffering, and other costs that came from your crash. Families members of loved ones who died in the crash can receive all of this, and payment for the cost of funeral, burial and lost companionship.
