Do you have questions about motorcycle accidents? Check out these 5 commonly asked motorcycle accident questions.
1) What should I consider when choosing an attorney for a motorcycle accident?
Clients who have been in motorcycle accidents, incurred hundreds and thousands of dollars in medical expenses, and even been in a coma often contact us for advice on how to proceed with a case. The most important thing that a person can do when they’re in a situation like this is look for and find a lawyer with trial experience and experience in this area of the law.
Our team at the Chavez Law Firm has this type of experience. We know how to guide our clients through the maze of medical treatment that they need after suffering such serious injuries, and we know how sensitive you can feel after a traumatic incident. If you have questions for yourself or for your love ones who have been involved in a serious motorcycle crash due to the negligence of someone else, please give us a call. We are more than happy to answer any questions you have in this regard.
2) What common mistakes should I avoid after a motorcycle accident?
Some of the most serious mistakes we see in the aftermath of serious motorcycle crashes are not seeking medical attention immediately. The other mistake that they make is talking to the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver or the negligent company without first talking to an experienced trial lawyer. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying out claims to injured people; they’re in the business of making money for their shareholders and paying out as little as they can. Talking to an insurance adjuster before you hire an experienced trial lawyer could be detrimental to your case.
We here at the Chavez Law Firm are experienced trial lawyers, and we have the skill to guide you through the process so that you get what you need and deserve. If you have questions about the process or anything related to either your or your loved one’s motorcycle crash, please give us a call. We’re more than happy and able to answer your questions.
3. How is fault determined in a motorcycle accident?
The way an experienced trial lawyer determines fault in a motorcycle crash is by looking at everybody involved. We want to make sure we look at the fault of the other drivers involved in the motorcycle car crash. We need to determine to what degree they are at fault, and we also have to get a complete picture of how the motorcyclist and to what degree the motorcyclist may have been at fault. In this way, we can have a true, complete and full picture of what occurred.
We know, as experienced trial lawyers and as lawyers in this area of the law, what questions to ask, what experts to contact and retain to execute a crash reconstruction. If you have questions about this process, please give us a call. We are ready and willing to answer all your questions that you might have on behalf of yourself or on behalf of your loved ones.
4. How do I determine the value of my motorcycle accident claim?
One of the questions that I am often asked by my clients who have been injured in serious motorcycle crashes is how to determine the value of a case. One of the factors we look at is the seriousness of the negligent driver’s conduct. For example, if the driver was driving drunk, that is obviously a factor we look at. If the driver was not paying attention to where they were driving and crashed into the back of my client’s motorcycle and caused serious injuries, that is another factor that we look at.
We also factor in the medical expenses incurred as a result of the other driver’s negligence. The medical expenses are also helpful in determining any physical pain and suffering that my clients have suffered, and also what is the emotional trauma that my client has suffered as a result of the driver’s negligence.
These are all factors that the Chavez Law Firm addresses in preparing our evidence for trial. If you have any questions about this part of your serious motorcycle crash case, please give us a call. Here at the Chavez Law Firm, we are experienced in this area of the law and have the experienced trial lawyers you need to answer questions about your case.
5. How are motorcycle accident claims different than other injury claims?
Motorcycle crash cases are different from car crash cases for a couple of reasons. First and foremost is that the injuries in motorcycle crash cases are normally catastrophic and more often can include brain damage or paralysis. Motorcycle cases often involve a good deal of blaming the motorcyclist, even if he or she was not at fault. We’re very sensitive to these types of issues, and at the Chavez Law Firm we know to ask the right questions. We are happy to answer any questions that you might have in this regard, either for yourself or for your loved ones. Please give us a call.
