There’s nothing like the thrill of the open road or the freedom of hopping on your bike for a cruise. We’re riders just like you and love jumping on our motorcycle for a destination ride or even a quick trip to the store. However, we also know that you need to be prepared when you ride. Motorcycle accidents can destroy your life if you don’t have all your bases covered before, during, and after a potential collision.
Motorcycle accidents have significant ramifications including injury, death, and financial repercussions. If you are at fault, you risk the full extent of the law should you not have proper coverage or legal representation. Similarly, if you are in an accident where you are entitled to compensation for your damaged motorcycle and riding gear, injuries, or loss of wages, you need to have an experienced law firm to help you get the best result. Law Tigers’ members are dedicated personal injury attorneys* who are concerned with your well-being and will help you every step of the way through this difficult process.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries or death. That’s why it’s so important to ride with safety gear all the time. However, even if you do everything possible to protect yourself, you won’t be able to account for other vehicles out on the road. Some of the most common causes for motorcycle crash injuries include:
- Motorcycles not being seen by other cars, whether in blind spots or lane changes
- Motorists that are not paying attention
- Other cars not being familiar with motorcycle laws
- Inclement weather or poor road conditions
- Left-hand turns by motorists across intersections (this is the #1 cause of motorcycle accidents)
Regardless of the cause of injury, having an established motorcycle accident law firm represent you is crucial. Understanding the details of the state, city, and even local motorcycle laws can play a huge role in getting you the proper compensation.
Part of what we do for our clients is to educate them about how to be best prepared for the worst-case scenario. In the event of a motorcycle accident injury, you may able to receive the following.
- Payment for current or future medical bills
- Treatment for mental trauma or injuries or other damages
- Loss of wages or earning potential
- Decreased quality of life
In addition to these, there are insurance settlements, fraud cases, and many other things to consider with the help of a local motorcycle injury law firm at your side.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you should be seeking legal representation no matter what. If you try to handle the accident claim on your own, you will run the risk of not always getting the financial compensation you deserve.
