Why You Need an Attorney
As a result of a motorcycle accident, you can experience a great deal of pain, limited mobility, and even extended emotional distress from your injuries. At this difficult time, an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit adds additional paperwork, legal decisions, and other situations you likely have little to no experience handling. Consulting with a motorcycle attorney can make all the difference in your personal well-being as well as the potential outcome of your case. A specialized motorcycle accident attorney fully understands the laws surrounding motorcycle accidents as well as your potential compensation. Your attorney can ensure all aspects of your case receive the proper attention they deserve while you recover from your injuries. The end result is a fair settlement so you can return to your day-to-day life.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The nature of a motorcycle’s design serves to make a motorcycle difficult to see in traffic as well as poses a risk to the relatively unprotected rider. As a result, other drivers may cross into the path of a motorcycle, causing motorcycle accidents that often result in death or serious injuries.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Failure to yield
- Distracted drivers
- Excessive speed
- Drunk driving
- Blind spot accidents
- Failure to drive according to road conditions
- Improperly maintained roads
- Lane sharing
A motorcycle accident attorney can investigate your accident and help you determine its cause. In the event that someone else’s negligence contributed to your accident and caused your injuries, you may file a personal injury lawsuit or an insurance claim to recover your damages.
Is Someone Liable for Your Damages?
Drivers have a duty of care, or legal responsibility, to abide by the rules of the road in order to prevent accidents or injury to other drivers. If your motorcycle accident occurred because someone else acted negligently while driving, you can file an insurance claim and begin a personal injury lawsuit. Consulting with our Pensacola car accident lawyer could give you some insight also. An attorney can assist you in determining the party that bears liability in your case. Alternatively, poor road conditions, defective or missing signage or the malfunction of your motorcycle may lead to motorcycle accidents. In this case, you may receive compensation from the government entity responsible for maintaining the road or signage, or even the motorcycle manufacturer. Speak with an experienced motorcycle attorney to determine liability.
