Getting Compensation for your Motorcycle Accident can be an Uphill Battle

Motorcycle accidents are statistically one of the most common roadway accidents out there and with obvious reason. A motorcycle rider is more exposed and more vulnerable, and also widely ignored by other drivers on the road. In 2013 – the most recent year recorded by NHTSA – 4,668 individuals died as the direct result of a motorcycle accident. If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, you may be owed more than an apology. Obtaining proper compensation for your motorcycle accident will require the services of a Marion Motorcycle accident lawyer, but it can be an uphill battle.

Placing Value on a Personal Injury Claim

There is no way to place value on your own life, but insurance companies will certainly try to. In order to receive adequate compensation, you need to accumulate ‘Special Damages’, which are your medical bills, lost wages, etc.  Additionally, your case needs to have assured liability, meaning a clear indication of who was at fault for the accident. In a personal injury case you will deal with medical special damage expenses, which cover your hospital stay, emergency room, and anything dealing with your recovery. You may also stand to collect for non-medical special damages which include a loss ofwages and earnings, loss of vacation time, sick leave, travel expenses, etc. Though you are owed these things it can be a bit of an uphill battle as your insurance company will investigate several different angles. For example, were you wearing a helmet? Did you obey the laws of the road? With a professional Marion Motorcycle accident lawyer representing you, you can ensure that you are not only successful in your court case, but also that you get precisely what you are entitled to.

Your Evidence

Putting a number on it is difficult, but it can be done. We will help you to sort it out before your case goes in front of a judge. Let us run the numbers and represent you in court so that you get what you deserve.
