What should I do after a motorcycle accident?

This is a crucial moment in the timeline of your case. Priority one is to seek medical care, of course, especially if your injuries might be subtle or hard to detect. If you are able, however, you also want to collect important information from the scene. This can include anything from the other drivers' information to specific observations about time, place, road conditions, and any obstacles that may have played a role. In the days ahead, you will also want to be assiduous about assembling documentation from other sources, including police reports, medical records, and any correspondence that occurs with insurance carriers.

What kind of expenses can I recover?

If you choose to pursue a motorcycle lawsuit, it is important to go in with your eyes open about what kind of damages you can seek. Arizona offers a number of ways to recover what you deserve, and a well-fought lawsuit may result in damages for medical care, loss of income, and pain and suffering. One or all of these can easily stretch into six figures and beyond depending on the circumstances of that accident and the state of your injuries. But it starts by retaining an effective Phoenix motorcycle accident attorney.

How much will it cost?

Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means they do not charge anything unless you win money for your injuries. In other words, there is literally no way to come out of that relationship having lost money - either the case does not prevail, in which case your attorney's services are free, or you win a settlement, in which case the attorney's fees are taken out of that settlement.

Who can be held liable for injuries or property damage resulting from a Phoenix motorcycle crash?

Anyone operating a vehicle that was involved in the accident could possibly be held liable. In addition, insurance companies, pedestrians, or public entities responsible for maintaining roadways could also possibly be held liable.

If a car, truck, or other motorcycle drives my bike off the road and then flees, can I file a personal injury claim?

Yes, this would be considered a hit and run accident. In such cases, you have to file a claim through your motorcycle insurance company in order to receive compensation for medical care and related accident expenses. In some cases, you can even file a motorcycle accident claim if a family member has the right coverage or even with your car insurance policy company.

Top

Do I need an expert to testify in a motorcycle liability case?

Well, it depends. In motorcycle accident cases that are straightforward and liability is not contested, you may not need an expert. However, in more complicated cases, like those that may involve a potential manufacturing liability, you may require a forensic investigator to evaluate the evidence and provide expert testimony at the trial.

If I don't have motorcycle insurance, can I still make a personal injury claim?

Yes. Even if you don't have insurance, that doesn't mean you lose your right to hold a negligent party accountable for injuries you suffered.
