When you’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle wreck, you need to know how much compensation you’re eligible for and how to collect it. Find out by working with a Gonzales motorcycle accident lawyer.
Motorcycle wrecks often leave the rider with serious—if not fatal—injuries and significant damage to the bike. Even worse, it’s not unheard of for insurance companies to try and take advantage of stereotypes that portray motorcyclists as dangerous drivers.
So how do you fight this negative stigma while ensuring that you get the full compensation you need for all of your damages? Your best course of action is to hire an experienced Gonzales motorcycle accident lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers. Our firm will help gather information to support your personal injury claim and fight for maximum compensation.
Gathering Evidence After a Motorcycle Wreck
No matter what type of collision you were injured in, your insurance company will want to know what caused the accident and who was at fault. Your attorney will handle that. In addition to talking to bystanders or any witnesses, we will talk to law enforcement, interview any first responders that reported to the scene, review available traffic camera footage, and ensure that your motorcycle was in working order.
Your Gonzales motorcycle accident lawyer will also investigate the crash and the other driver to determine if any of the following factors played a role:
It’s also important that we get your complete story to help combat that negative stigma, so make sure to not leave anything out. Even if you were slightly at fault for the accident, you can still collect compensation.
Compensation for Your Injuries
Many crash victims want to know how much money they can claim from their accident and injuries. The final amount can’t be determined until all factors from your wreck are taken into consideration.
However, you should expect to receive compensation to cover every financial expense and lost quality of life incurred by your injuries or the motorcycle collision:
Medical bills, both current and future
Lost wages, including any lost future earning ability
Rehabilitative therapy, whether physical or emotional
Personal property damage and replacement
Outside of these expenses, our firm will also fight for what are called non-economic damages. This is money awarded to compensate how your quality of life has decreased, such as through pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium.
Connect with a Gonzales Motorcycle Crash Attorney
Motorcycle accidents are often severe and can leave the victim with multiple injuries and mounds of bills as a result. While the insurance company may offer you a settlement soon afterward, the initial settlement amount likely won’t cover everything, and they may even try to pin the blame for what happened onto you.
