How We Handle Motorcycle Accident Cases
Investigating motorcycle accidents can be difficult due to an existing public bias against motorcycles. A bias against motorcycles may be held even by law enforcement officers, so involving lawyers early can be important to a strong investigation of your case.
That is not to say that a case cannot be made if time has passed since you were injured. It may be possible to prove that drivers who have struck you were acting recklessly or negligently.
Accident victims can recover lost wages and future earnings, compensation for medical bills and projected health care costs, as well as damages for pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In fatal motorcycle crashes, surviving family members can recover wrongful death damages for lost earnings, loss of consortium, and emotional pain.
Even though nothing can make up for the pain and suffering caused by the sudden loss of a loved one, monetary recovery can help ease the financial strain resulting from an untimely accident.
