Injured riders might find it challenging to recover compensation after a crash, especially without the help of an attorney. Insurance coverage that applies to a person’s car might not apply to that same person’s motorcycle. Coverage is typically independent and requires an additional motorcycle policy. Without proper insurance, a motorcyclist may financially struggle to meet the demands of high medical bills, an inability to work, or disability.
Michael Hua Injury Law is experienced in motorcycle accidents, has access to top experts, accident reconstructionists, and doctors to obtain full justice and the best compensation for you.
To help build your case, we will:
It’s rare for most experienced motorcycle riders to break the motorcycle safety rules and the rules of the road and for good reason. When a motorcyclist is not at fault, they may seek financial justice for their harms and losses from the at fault individual or corporation. Common damages that injured riders can obtain economic justice for are medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering among other things.
It’s important to contact an attorney to investigate your accident as soon as possible or else risk fleeting evidence. The other side will likely be creating and communicating with their own team. At this stage, your attorney and their team can hopefully still get to the scene to take photographs and measurements. Your attorney and their team will take down all relevant information from you and begin your claims for your motorcycle accident.
After you’ve received the appropriate care and we have been in contact with the wrongful driver’s insurance company, we begin negotiating a settlement for the harms and losses that you sustained from the other driver. If insurance negotiations are unreasonable or offensive, you may pursue legal action against the negligent party and take them to court with your attorney’s help.
Motorcycle accidents are personal injury cases stemming from negligence. Negligence is basically occurs where someone is responsible harms and losses caused when breaking the rules and hurting someone. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will need to prove that the other driver acted beyond a reasonable standard of care by violating the rules of the road, traffic laws, or was driving drunk or under the influence among other things.
Sometimes a defect in your motorcycle or another driver’s vehicle may have caused an accident. You may file a lawsuit against the manufacturer to recover full justice for your injuries in some cases.
It is extremely important to keep possession of the vehicles and avoid making any substantial changes to those vehicles. Your attorney will need to investigate the vehicles involved as soon as possible to study the vehicle and determine whether defects existed prior to the accident. Michael Hua Injury Law will work with a forensic expert to determine whether the defect in the motorcycle or its parts were unreasonably dangerous, the motorcycle was operated as intended, and the motorcycle was not substantially changed or modified since its initial purchase.
Some common examples are defective tires, brakes, fuel systems, and accelerators.
