Facts About Motorcycle Wrecks
Motorcycle crashes come with their own special kind of medical expenses. From small motorcycle accident injuries to emotional pain, it can be expensive and time-consuming.
In 2016 & 2017, more than 35% of motorcycle accidents were caused by reckless drivers or distracted drivers.
The national average is 10 for every 100,000 accidents.
When you’re in an accident, you’ve got a limited window to file a personal injury claim. Even the best motorcycle accident lawyers can’t help you if you’re filing after 2 years have passed, which is the statute of limitations in Oklahoma.
The more information you have, and the sooner your attorney has it, the better. Let’s take a look at what will help you and your attorney when pursuing your case:
Pictures of the accident scene
Medical records resulting from the accident
Communications with the opposing attorney, other driver, or insurance company.
All this information is how an attorney gets you your initial settlement offer. The cause of the accident matters less in personal injury cases - it’s all about the results of the accident and what your personal injury lawyer can prove. Whether the accident was a result of driver negligence (like a truck driver who didn’t see a motorcyclist) or an at-fault motorcyclist, a personal injury lawyer can help.
The minute an insurance company gets a letter of representation from a lawyer, they’ll pay attention. That’s the only thing that will guarantee they play ball when it comes to negotiation tactics and getting your settlement done. No matter the type of case you have, hiring a personal injury attorney is your best chance at negotiating with insurance companies.
Rules and Regulations
Because motorcycle accidents are considered riskier and more deadly than car wrecks, there are safety protocols in place to help control the rate of motorcycle accidents. Like licenses, safety regulations, and insurance requirements for motorcyclists.
Having an experienced Oklahoma personal injury attorney on your side is crucial for navigating the legal nuances associated with motorcycle lawsuits.
Protracted litigation and jury trials are expensive and unpredictable. Neither your lawyer nor the other side wants to take that risk. It’s more effective for them to try to get you to settle.
You’re eligible for compensation for so many things. This motorcycle accident caused you lots of financial pain, like:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Even property damage
Motorcycle wrecks, like most personal injury cases, are settled out of court with a financial settlement agreement. That reward is meant to reimburse you for what you’ve spent already and help you cover what you’ll spend in the future.
