How to Secure Compensation After a Motorcycle Wreck
If you want to secure financial support in the wake of a motorcycle crash, you can:
Contact an Insurance Provider
In the immediate aftermath of your crash, make sure to get the liable party’s insurance and contact information. You can bring your losses to an insurance provider’s attention to secure compensation for your losses. Most insurance providers will send an insurance claims adjuster out to your property to assess the extent of the damage done to your person and property.
That said, you have the right to independently calculate the value of your losses. A motorcycle accident attorney in Westfield can help with this process by accounting for all of the economic and non-economic damages you may deserve. Once you receive a settlement offer from an insurance provider, you can contrast it against your own calculations.
Our attorneys do more than help you with your initial settlement calculations. We can step in if it appears that an insurance provider may be undervaluing your case. We can even appeal a denied motorcycle accident claim. Should the need arise, we can even take a provider to civil court on charges of bad faith.
You deserve comprehensive compensation after a motorcycle accident. Our attorneys are here to ensure that you get it.
File a Personal Injury Claim
There’s a chance that the party liable for your motorcycle accident may not have insurance. Alternatively, their insurance may not be comprehensive enough to contend with the breadth of your losses. In these cases, and in general, you can explore your right to take the offending party before a civil judge.
If you want to initiate a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for your motorcycle accident, you need to file a claim with Indiana’s civil courts. That claim needs to make it to a judge before your statute of limitations, Indiana Code section 34-11-2-4, expires.
Fortunately, you have experienced lawyers on your side. Vaughan & Vaughan can investigate your motorcycle wreck. You can count on our team to bring forward the evidence you need to prove your right to a case well before your statute of limitations expires.
Working With a Lawyer to File a Motorcycle Accident Claim
You do have the right to represent your own best interests should you decide to open a motorcycle accident lawsuit against the party allegedly liable for your losses. This isn’t always the best idea, though. It takes years of diligent training to understand civil law. If you’re trying to teach yourself the basics while also contending with injuries, you may miss a few key details.
The attorneys with Vaughan & Vaughan have several combined decades of legal expertise that they’re prepared to put to use on your behalf. What’s more, we offer you access to that expertise on a contingency basis. You will not receive a bill from our team while your case progresses. We only get paid for the representation we provide if we win your case.
What services can you expect from this tried and tested team? When it comes time to tackle your motorcycle wreck case, we can:
Calculate the Value of Your Motorcycle Wreck Compensation
Everyone wants to know how much their motorcycle accident case may be worth before they go to court. Fortunately, that’s a question our team can answer. While there’s no “average” settlement that you can request after a wreck, our team calculates the sum total of your possible damages by accounting for your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Property damage
- Post-accident stress
Defend Your Right to Legal Action
You need a comprehensive bank of evidence to hold a particular party liable for your motorcycle accident losses. Fortunately, you don’t have to retraumatize yourself by returning to the scene of your accident. Our Westfield, IN, motorcycle accident lawyers can go back to the scene for you. While there, we can uncover evidence of a liable party’s roadway negligence.
That evidence can include physical debris from your accident as well as statements from nearby witnesses. We can even request that storefront owners turn over any footage of your accident that their security cameras might have picked up. Once we leave the scene, we can request that our network of expert witnesses contribute their expertise to an analysis of your case.
When the time comes to assign blame for your losses, be aware that the evidence we bring forward might point to an unexpected party. While it’s easy to assume that another driver bears the blame for your accident, fault may alternatively fall on the following parties:
- A motorcycle manufacturer
- A motorcycle mechanic
- Government officials
- Construction crews
- Other motorcyclists
No matter who appears to be to blame for your losses, you can count on Vaughan & Vaughan to walk you through the analysis that led to our conclusions. In turn, you can go into negotiations or a traditional trial with a comprehensive understanding of the data behind our accusation of fault.
