Issues Associated with Motorcycle Accident Claims

When injured in a motorcycle accident, it is advisable to contact our team of motorcycle accident lawyers right away. We have rich legal experience, solid understanding of the law and knowledge on how to pursue and win motorcycle accident lawsuits. 

After a motorcycle accident, it is crucial to seek legal representation because motorcycle accident claims are approached differently as compared to car and truck accidents. With a lawyer by your side, you can rest assured that your rights will be protected; and you will get maximum compensation for your losses and injuries arising from the accident.

Only a seasoned lawyer can help you overcome the issues related to motorcycle accident claims. If these challenges are not dealt with the right way, you may never get justice. Here’s a quick overview of the issues related to motorcycle accident claims: 

Motorcyclists are always considered to be at Fault

Most of the times, insurance companies tend to blame motorcyclists for accidents because of the stereotypes associated with them. As motorcyclists are often seen weaving in and out of traffic and splitting lanes, this type of behavior is seen as reckless and negligent. When an accident occurs, it is natural to blame motorcyclists. Sometimes, accidents may be caused by the negligence of motorcyclists but not always. 

The best way to overcome this challenge is to build a solid case with crucial and supporting evidence. And this is where a team of experienced motorcycle accident lawyers can truly help you. Our lawyers, coupled with the help of collision reconstruction experts, will piece together evidence to determine the exact cause of the accident and the party responsible. 

Magnitude of injuries

Insurance companies often downplay the injuries suffered by motorcyclists to limit their liability. Thus, they will try to convince you to accept a low-ball offer and close the case. Here, the challenge lies in proving your injuries and getting rightfully compensated. 

Our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers will collect your medical reports, which includes all the details of your injuries caused by the motorcycle accident. Depending on the extent and severity of your injuries, we will file the right amount of compensation claim and fight until you get a fair settlement.

In comparison to car accident victims, motorcyclists suffer from serious injuries like broken bones, spinal damage, neck injuries and road rash, after accidents. This is because of the lack of protection in motorcycles. Moreover, the cost of a claim is also high because serious motorcycle injuries may require multiple surgeries and extensive medical treatments. 

Jury bias  

Another challenge that motorcycle accident victims may face is jury bias. This happens because most people have never ridden a bike. Thus, they are unfamiliar with how motorcycles are operated and the risks associated with them. One of the biggest issues with such claims is to educate the jury and make them understand the mechanics of a motorcycle and risks that motorcyclists are exposed to so that they can make the right decision.
