The cost barrier standing between motorcycle accident survivors and the representatives they deserve can keep many survivors, including you, from considering legal action after a crash. Unfortunately, the longer you delay, the more difficult it may be for you to take advantage of the legal options available to you through the Indiana civil justice system.
Vaughan & Vaughan believes that your right to justice shouldn’t come with a paywall. That’s why our motorcycle accident attorneys in Indiana operate on contingency. We do not get paid for our services unless we win you a reasonable motorcycle accident settlement. Even then, our contingency fee agreements protect you from unexpected bills.

Contingency Works in Your Favor
“Contingency” defines a process through which attorneys like those with Vaughan & Vaughan represent motorcycle accident survivors like you without charging them for their services. When you work with an attorney who operates on contingency, it doesn’t matter how much money you have in the bank or what kind of bills you’re dealing with.
Contingency-based attorneys do not charge you for their legal services unless they win you a settlement. Even then, contingency fee agreements ensure that the pay a lawyer receives comes out of the settlement you’ve recently won. As such, a contingency-based attorney puts no additional financial pressure on you after a severe motorcycle accident.
That said, it’s always a good idea to go into an initial case consultation with questions about how a certain firm’s contingency policies work. Make sure to ask what percentage of your settlement your attorney may receive if they win your case. The more information you have about this process, the more confident you can be in your long-term financial standing.
Fight for the Settlement You Deserve
If you have financial concerns after a motorcycle accident, including questions about whether or not you can afford representation, let an attorney know. We always believe in maximizing the compensation we think you deserve after a motorcycle accident.
If we know that you have post-accident financial concerns, we can help identify types of compensation you might have overlooked. What’s more, the more compensation you receive in a motorcycle accident case, the easier it may be to pay all of your post-accident bills, even when taking a law firm’s contingency fees into account.
When you file a motorcycle accident claim, you express your right to economic and non-economic motorcycle crash damages. These damages tend to break down as follows:
Motorcycle accident economic damages tend to include losses that generate bills. This means that your right to economic damages entitles you to financial support covering your medical bills, property repair, and wages lost while recovering. If your motorcycle accident proves fatal for a loved one, you may even demand compensation for that person’s funeral expenses.
Non-economic motorcycle accident damages tend not to leave a paper trail. That doesn’t mean that these losses don’t have value, though. Instead, Indiana defines how much these losses are worth and how that worth impacts the compensation you can receive after a motorcycle accident.
The most common non-economic damages to appear in motorcycle accident cases include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish. Our team can calculate the value of these losses and integrate that value into an estimate of the damages you deserve.
Consider Negotiating for a Motorcycle Accident Settlement
If you’re tight on cash after a motorcycle accident, you may want legal matters to resolve sooner rather than later so you can use your settlement to recover. While no two motorcycle accident claims settle on the exact same timeline, negotiating for a settlement tends to put money in your hands faster than a traditional trial does.
With that in mind, you can discuss the likelihood of negotiating a settlement with an Indiana motorcycle crash attorney. These conversations can eventually lead to those negotiations, which may resolve after one or two meetings with a liable party.
Going to court has its benefits, of course, particularly if you end up working with a belligerent or uncooperative liable party. That said, if you begin the legal process with negotiations, you may find yourself with the money you need to pay for property damage and medical expenses sooner than you would if you left your right to support up to a jury.
