Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in McKinney
Motorcycle Accidents Can Cost a Victim Greatly
If you or a family member were involved in a motorcycle accident, you are probably well aware of the costs and stress that come along with this type of accident. Motorcycle injuries are often serious and result in costly medical treatment. If an injury keeps an accident victim away from the workplace, this can result in lost wages and income and increase the financial burden of an accident. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Zinda Law Group want to help you get the compensation needed to back on your feet after an accident. Call 800-863-5312 today for a free attorney consultation.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are often the result of a motor vehicle driver not paying enough attention to the road while turning or switching lanes. In fact, about two-thirds of motorcycle accidents can be attributed to the fault of another driver. When another driver is involved in the crash, it is important to have an attorney who will know how to negotiate with the other person’s insurance company. A motorcycle accident attorney with experience dealing with insurance companies can help victims ensure that they get the best medical treatment possible and the money needed to pay for it.
Get the Help & Compensation You Deserve
An attorney can also work to obtain a more favorable settlement in a lawsuit against the negligent driver. Without an attorney, a victim could easily incriminate himself while discussing the events with an insurance company or with the other driver. Motorcycle riders may incur bias as motorcycles have a reputation for being dangerous and attracting risk takers. Given that so few accidents are completely the fault of the motorcycle rider, it is imperative that these victims be represented by someone who understands the circumstances of these accidents and who can convince the other side of his client’s innocence.
As the victim of a motorcycle accident, you could be entitled to compensation for the economic damages you experienced from the accident. This could include medical bills, lost income, property damage, transportation costs, rehabilitation, and more. Victims will also likely have experienced non-economic damages like pain and suffering. It is difficult to put a price tag on the pain and suffering in the case of a serious injury or death of a victim. The compensation that is awarded to a victim’s family for pain and suffering or loss of consortium is either calculated during a settlement discussion or determined after a hearing before a judge or a jury.
A qualified motorcycle injury attorney with experience representing motorcycle victims and their families will know which factors to emphasize in court or in a settlement to help his client obtain favorable compensation for both the economic and non-economic aspects of their accident.
