America’s highways provide a great deal of freedom to motorcycle riders in pursuing their love of the open road. However, this freedom can come at a high price if a rider is involved in an accident. In many motorcycle collisions, the point of impact is the front of the vehicle, often resulting in devastating and even fatal injuries.
For this reason, the consequences of a motorcycle crash are serious and frequently include physical and emotional pain, costly medical bills, lost income, and property damage. Victims may also be left questioning whether they will ever be able to ride a motorcycle again. The anxiety is made worse if the accident was not the rider’s fault or was due to a car or truck driver’s carelessness.
After an accident, various facts need to be uncovered in order to establish who was to blame, or the extent to which each party was to blame, and thus, who is financially responsible. This process can be extremely complicated, and it’s likely that the parties involved will not see eye to eye on the matter. Making the determination of fault can become even more difficult if the accident entailed equipment breakdowns, unsafe road conditions, publicly owned vehicles, or other complicating factors.
Under these circumstances, it is vital to have a skilled personal injury attorney on your side in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident. The highly experienced attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm will reach an agreement with the insurance company to make sure you obtain the maximum compensation. They have the expertise to prepare the strongest arguments in constructing your case, fully explain your legal options, conduct a painstaking investigation of the accident’s circumstances, and, if needed, challenge the police report’s findings in court. Besides establishing driver liability, inspection of road conditions and safety equipment may be required to determine if these factors played a role in the collision.
The majority of insurers like to pay claims quickly, and so offer only minimal assistance to motorcycle accident victims, preferring that you don’t learn you have lasting medical issues or disabilities due to an accident. For insurance companies, it’s just another business transaction, but for you, it may be a life-changing event that affects your future for many years to come. So, it’s essential that you not agree to a settlement without first consulting an attorney who can examine your case. If the insurance company fails to agree to a just settlement, it will take your case to court.
To be justly reimbursed for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering as a result of a motorcycle accident, you need a highly skilled personal injury lawyer to fight for you in court and obtain the compensation you deserve. Mike Slocumb Law Firm will employ its many years of experience and extensive resources to make sure you obtain the best outcome possible for your injury claim.
