Motorcycle accidents often result in very serious personal injuries (and sometimes death), to the motorcycle operator, passenger or both. Individuals involved in a motorcycle accident are entitled to seek compensation for the damage caused to their motorcycle, the medical bills or lost wages they incur, as well as the injuries sustained due to the fault of another. It is important that you retain a motorcycle accident attorney experienced in handling these types of cases to properly advise you of your rights.
If you need the assistance of a motorcycle personal injury attorney, ask that motorcycle accident attorney if he or she will assist you in arranging to have your motorcycle repaired for free? Most experienced motorcycle accident lawyers, as part of your legal representation, will provide you legal assistance in requiring the at-fault party or their insurance company, to pay you for either the repair of your motorcycle or replacement of your motorcycle. A motorcycle is considered a total loss when the cost to repair the motorcycle is more than 70% to 80% of the actual cash value of your motorcycle.
If you are unfortunately involved in a motorcycle accident, you should do the following to protect your rights:
- Call the police and complete an accident police report.
- Ask for the name and address of the at-fault driver, as well as the name of his or her insurance company.
- Ask for the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses.
- Photograph the damage to your motorcycle and clothes, as well your injuries.
- Keep the clothes you were wearing when the motorcycle accident occurred.
- Keep the helmet you were wearing when the motorcycle accident occurred.
