Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you could be dealing with painful injuries, worrying about all the workdays you’re missing, and wondering how you’ll pay off all your medical bills. On top of that, you’re probably unsure how to get the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
At Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC, we believe that all accident victims deserve the financial remedies they need to treat their injuries and have peace of mind. When you work with a motorcycle accident attorney from our firm, they’ll pursue full compensation for the financial losses, inconveniences, and challenges you’ve shouldered due to your collision.
How Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Maximize Your Compensation
Our team’s goal is to get you the largest payment possible by filing a successful insurance claim or personal injury suit. To do so, our attorneys will take several key actions, all geared toward obtaining the damages you need to put this accident behind you.
Here’s what our firm can do to get you the best results possible:
Investigate Your Accident Thoroughly
Collecting evidence of the accident is the first step in building a winning personal injury claim. We’ll gather the following records and testimonies to support your claim:
- The accident report filed by local law enforcement
- Photos of the accident scene, tire marks, vehicle damage, etc.
- Footage of the incident recorded by nearby traffic or security cameras
- Testimony from accident reconstructionists
- Eyewitness testimony
- Your medical records
Calculate How Much Your Claim Is Worth
Without the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer, you might accept a settlement offer from the insurance company that doesn’t even begin to cover the economic and non-economic losses you’ve suffered due to the crash.
Fortunately, an attorney from our firm can look at all the ways the collision has affected you, including the financial, employment-related, emotional, and physical struggles you’ve faced. Then, once they’ve calculated how much compensation you need to make up for the negative impacts of the incident, they’ll be able to move forward with your claim.
Depending on how your bike crash has affected you, your lawyer may pursue several or more of the following damages:
- Current, ongoing, and future medical expenses
- Cost of assistive medical devices and rehabilitative therapy
- Motorcycle repair expenses
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Demand the Payment You’re Owed
Whether our motorcycle accident attorneys pursue compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company or by taking your case to court, they’ll push for the settlement or jury award you need to cover your accident-related expenses and other losses.
Our team will present a convincing argument as to why you deserve maximum compensation, using evidence from the investigation and possibly even witness testimony to seal the deal. Once your case has concluded, our attorneys will likely have secured the payment you’re owed.
What You Should Do After a Motorcycle Accident
If you’ve been struck by another driver while riding your motorcycle, there are a few steps you can take to ensure your injuries are properly treated and improve your chances of receiving compensation for your losses.
Here’s what the motorcycle accident lawyers at Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC recommends you do immediately after a bike crash:
Seek Medical Treatment
If you’re in a great deal of pain or have suffered an injury requiring immediate medical attention, call 911 and get the care you need. Bike crashes can result in serious brain and spinal injuries, broken bones, and other conditions that require treatment.
That said, if you only have a few cuts and bruises, you can probably seek treatment later in the day and tackle the following steps in the meantime.
Gather Information and Evidence
While our motorcycle accident lawyers will conduct an investigation later on, it can be helpful to collect evidence and information immediately after the collision. First, you’ll want to call the police and let them write up an accident report detailing the incident.
Next, take down the at-fault driver’s name and insurance information. Once you’ve done so, take the following steps:
- Take photos of the accident scene, including the vehicles involved
- Take photos of vehicle damage, damaged guardrails, and damaged signs
- Take photos of any visible injuries you’ve sustained
- Keep a written record of the pain and emotional distress you experience after the crash
- Speak to eyewitnesses and ask if they can give a statement to your lawyer
Take Road Rash Seriously
Many motorcycle accident victims mistake road rash for a harmless scrape or friction burn. However, when left untreated, road rash can cause infections with fatal consequences.
If you suspect you’ve suffered road rash, make sure to see a doctor and get the treatment you need to avoid unwanted health effects.
Hire a Motorcycle Accident Attorney ASAP
According to Alabama Code § 6.2.38, you have two years from the date of your motorcycle crash to file a civil suit against the driver who caused the collision. If you miss this filing deadline, you won’t be able to recover the remedies you need to pay your bills and get your life back on track.
