A Serious Motorcycle Accident Can Hurt Your Health And Finances For Years
Talk about your injuries with a motorcycle accident lawyer before you head to court.
Motorcycles can give you a sense of freedom that other modes of transportation simply don’t offer. But that doesn’t mean you aren’t at risk for a serious injury. Other drivers may not be paying attention until it’s too late, and they’ve hit you.
If you’re hurt in a serious Nevada motorcycle accident, our lawyers at Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright, can help. We know you’re facing a difficult lawsuit on your own. But we can help you get paid and focus on your health first.
Facing Insurance Companies After A Motorcycle Accident
When you’re hurt in a motorcycle accident, your first thought may be, “Well, at least the insurance company should help me.” Typically, after an auto accident, the insurance company of the at-fault party should cover the costs of the injured party. Plus, you’re required to carry insurance as a motorcyclist. But it’s not always that simple.
Many insurance companies may act differently toward motorcyclists. They may claim you were partly at fault. Or they may try to avoid paying the maximum settlement you’re due. Sadly, that means you may receive a smaller or no settlement.
Worse, they may try to pin the blame on you in court. In court, taking part of the blame could mean your compensation will be reduced. That leaves you paying out of pocket for the losses the other party caused.
Because your claim can be so difficult and confusing, speak with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to help your claim succeed. At Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright, our attorneys can help to protect you from accusations of fault so you can get compensated fairly for your losses.
Compensation For Motorcycle Accidents
But how much are your losses following a motorcycle accident? These losses, also called damages, can be tough to calculate without the right guidance and tools.
For example, your financial losses, or economic damages, may seem easy to calculate. You simply need to add up the costs of your recovery, such as medical bills, motorcycle repair, and lost wages. But you may also need future damages covered. You may have a surgery scheduled months in advance, for example. We can help you track these expenses.
But what about the mental and emotional toll of your motorcycle accident? A lawyer can help you there, too. These noneconomic damages should cover the pain and suffering, emotional trauma and anxieties you may have suffered because of the accident. We have the tools to figure out their value.
