Your Rights as a Motorcyclist
Motorcycle accidents often change the lives of their victims forever. Years of disabling pain, financial difficulty, physical therapy, and emotional stress can cripple entire families. When the split-second recklessness of another driver causes a motorcyclist to become seriously injured, the United States legal system is designed to protect the victim and hold the negligent party accountable.
Every motorcycle accident comes with its own unique set of circumstances. Our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers can help you understand protect your rights, ensuring that your insurance claim is filed with the documentation, evidence, and supporting facts necessary to make it indisputable to the responsible party’s insurance company.
Basic Rights for Motorcycle Accident Victims
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, some of your basic rights include:
- A medical evaluation by a physician who specializes in motorcycle accident injuries
- Ongoing medical care for disabilities
- Compensation for medical expenses and property damage
- Reimbursement of lost income and lost earning capacity
- Damages for pain, suffering, and emotional trauma
The amount of compensation you are entitled to will vary depending on the severity of your injuries and the circumstances surrounding the accident.
