If it has an engine, chances are, I can drive it. As a motorcycle rider myself, I am committed to motorcyclist’s rights.
My experience with motorcycle personal injury cases has taught me that injured bikers often have a more difficult time obtaining fair compensation than non-motorcycle accident victims. Stereotypes still exist. And people, often, incorrectly assume that the accident was caused by the motorcycle rider.
Let’s face it… motorcycle riders get a bad rap. In many cases, the person who actually caused the accident will claim that the motorcyclist was partially at fault or responsible for the accident, even though there’s no evidence for such an argument. Notwithstanding, the most common excuse given by a motorist for striking a motorcycle is that they “didn’t see the motorcycle” before hitting it.
Without an experienced Indianapolis motorcycle accident lawyer on your side, there’s a chance you will receive less compensation than you deserve. I’ve represented clients after they were injured in a motorcycle accident, and I understand how their injuries affect them physically, emotionally, and financially.
If you were seriously injured in a motorcycle crash, I can help you obtain the compensation that you rightfully deserve. If your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident, I can also help you file a wrongful death claim to obtain just compensation for your loss.
My first task in evaluating a motorcycle accident case is to understand and document how and why the crash occurred. This usually involves using the services of an experienced investigator who will visit and photograph the accident scene, photograph the vehicles as they appear after an accident, and take recorded statements of any witnesses to the accident.
Other important sources of information include obtaining any 911 calls to identify potential witnesses to the accident. Onboard data recorders that are found in most cars and trucks can also provide valuable information. When an airbag is deployed in an accident, these devices will record valuable information such as the speed of the vehicle before the airbag was deployed, its direction, and when its brakes were applied. Such objective evidence is very valuable in proving who was responsible for an accident.
However, this information is only available for a short time after an accident. So, it’s critically important to contact an attorney with experience in motorcycle accidents as soon as possible so that important evidence may be preserved.
