frequently asked Questions
Why should I contact a motorcycle accident attorney?
Injured drivers can find it difficult to get compensation after an accident, especially if they are making their claim without the help of a lawyer. Since in some countries personal injury insurance protection (PIP) is only required for vehicles with four or more wheels, motorcyclists are not allowed to have PIP insurance.

Even if the motorcyclist owns a PIP-insured car, the insurance cover does not extend to accidents that occur on the motorcycle. If the motorcyclist is not insured, they may not be able to pay the expensive medical bills, especially if the injury prevents them from working.

If you have been injured in an accident, an attorney can explain your options for recovering medical bills and other losses – which could be made worse by circumstances such as medical malpractice. If you contact a lawyer immediately after the accident, they can begin gathering information and evidence to support your claim for damages. To make your claim, your lawyer can:
Collect scene and police reports
Collect testimony
Take a picture of the scene
Investigate the driving history of the other motorist
Reconstruct the scene of the accident
Recreate the accident
View medical records
Consult experts
Contact insurance companies on your behalf

Claims for damages in motorcycle accidents
If the motorcyclist is not at fault, he can demand compensation from the negligently caused party. Motorcyclists are not covered by PIP insurance, but they are not bound by its restrictions either. Injured drivers are not limited in the amount of damage they can claim for their losses, including compensation for pain and suffering.
Claims for motor vehicle accidents are PIP insurance, in which the injured party has to cross an “injury threshold” in order to be able to claim damages from the negligent party – and does not allow compensation for pain and damage. Motorcyclists do not have to exceed an injury threshold to claim damages, der may include medical expenses, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering.

Insurance negotiations
After an accident, your lawyer can contact the negligent party’s insurance company to negotiate a settlement of the costs incurred as a result of the accident. He or she will use the information gathered to get compensation for your expenses. If negotiations with insurance companies are unsuccessful or unsatisfactory, you may be able to take the negligent party to court with the help of your lawyer.

negligence
Motorcycle accident lawsuits fall under the personal injury category, which in turn is based on the theory of negligence. In other words, your lawyer will need to prove that the other driver was to blame for the accident because he or she did not exercise reasonable care. To do this, your attorney will conduct an investigation to learn more about the incident, including whether the other driver was obeying the traffic rules, paying attention to their surroundings, driving under influence, etc.

Product liability
In some cases, a defect in your car or the other party’s car could have led to the accident. In these cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the car or its parts for compensation for your injuries. In these circumstances, the attorney will conduct an investigation to examine the car and determine if there were any defects prior to the accident. He or she will work with forensic experts to determine if:
The defective motorcycle or part was “unreasonably dangerous”
The motorcycle was operated as intended
The motorcycle’s performance hadn’t changed since it was first purchased
Some examples of the defects you may be able to file a product liability claim for are defective tires, brakes, accelerator pedals, and defective fuel systems.

Unjust death
If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation through a homicide lawsuit. A lawyer can help the deceased’s family prove that the other driver’s negligence was the cause of the victim’s death.
What compensation can be claimed back?
In the event of a negotiation or litigation against an insurance company or a negligent party, the lawyers in our office may be able to help you obtain compensation for:
Past and future medical costs: Victims can request compensation for emergency visits, hospital treatment, surgery, etc. if the injuries were directly related to the accident.

Lost wages: Victims of motorcycle accidents can request compensation for the wages they could have earned had the accidents not occurred. Victims can claim back compensation for the time they were absent from work to recover.
Pain and Suffering: Since PIP insurance may not be offered to motorcyclists, they can file a lawsuit for compensation to address their post-accident pain and suffering. To determine whether the victim is seeking compensation, factors such as the type of injury and the duration and severity of the pain are considered.

Mental Agony: Victims and families may also be offered compensation for the emotional pain they experienced after the incident. Emotional suffering includes feelings of fear, embarrassment, nervousness, worry, and sadness.
Loss of Consortium: The surviving spouse may be awarded compensation for the loss of services, assistance, assistance, society and society of his or her loved ones in the event of wrongful death in a motorcycle accident. Surviving parents can be awarded compensation for the loss of love, affection and company of their minor children as a result of their unlawful death. Likewise, minor children may be awarded compensation for the loss of services, support, assistance, society and company of their parents as a result of their wrongful death.
