Motorcycle Accidents

Whether you are a dedicated motorcycle enthusiast, or just a weekend traveler, riding a motorcycle is unlike any other type of transportation. The thrill of the open roads, the adventure of exploring scenic routes, and the freedom of the lifestyle are just some of the reasons people are passionate about riding motorcycles. Yet, for all its appeal, there are inherent risks associated with riding a motorcycle. The motorcycle injury lawyers at Action Legal Group understand the risks motorcyclists face, and the long-term physical and financial consequences resulting from a motorcycle accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact us immediately. We can help you.

You Deserve Compensation

Motorcyclists, or bikers, are extremely vulnerable while on the road, and all too often are on the defense while riding. Despite the biker’s skill in operating a motorcycle, accidents happen, and more often than not, the motorcyclist is the innocent victim of a car or truck driver’s negligence. Most drivers of standard vehicles are not aware of the motorcycle laws in place to protect motorcyclists. At Action Legal Group we are experts in motorcycle laws and riders rights, and have decades of experience in representing victims of motorcycle accidents. Our motorcycle injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents Facts

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident and 6 times more likely to be injured, often times seriously, than in any other type of motor vehicle. Many of these accidents are not the fault of the motorcyclist, including:

Failure of driver to observe a three-second cushion between the vehicle and motorcycle

The auto accident lawyers at Action Legal Group have put together this list of reasons why hiring a lawyer immediately after an accident with help ensure your legal rights are protected.

Certain Rules Must be Followed:

Individual states have very different and strict requirements that must be followed within a set time period following a motorcycle accident in order to preserve your legal rights. For example, it may be required to file a police report within a very short window of time, and failure to adhere to a mandated time frame may extinguish some of your legal rights. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney will know the complex laws in your state, and will make sure you do not jeopardize your legal rights.

Dealing with Insurance Companies:

Most insurance companies will work with their customers, quickly offering compensation for both vehicle damages and medical expenses. Yet, insurance companies inherently strive to keep their costs down, often by means of significantly lower payouts to accident victims. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney has the experience to negotiate with big insurance companies and aggressively represent your best interest to secure fair and full compensation.

Full Range of Potential Damages:

An experienced car accident attorney will know the full range of potential claims for damages you may be entitled to. Beyond claims for repair or replacement of your vehicle and basic medical expenses, you may also be entitled to recovery for pain and suffering, present and future lost wages, or even damages for family members should be you be permanently disabled from the motorcycle accident.

Negotiating Settlements:

Most insurance companies and the party responsible for your car accident will likely prefer to settle your case outside of court. And, in many cases these settlement offers are far below what you are fairly due. Not only will an experienced car accident attorney aggressively negotiate any settlement offer, the attorney will also clearly advise you of all your legal options and explain the legal implications of accepting any settlement offer.

The above are just a few of the reasons to hire an experienced car accident attorney after a motor vehicle accident. Insurance companies have large teams of attorneys working for them, leaving you at a serious disadvantage should you try to represent yourself. Most insurance companies will discourage you from hiring any attorney and put pressure on you to accept a lower settlement quickly.

Do not sign any document or agreement with an insurance company until you have talked with an experienced car accident attorney, and never tell anyone the accident was your fault.
