MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT DAMAGES ARE BASED ON MANY FACTORS
Each auto accident is different, and many factors impact settlements or judgments, including whether one should be paid at all. Was your loved one killed in a motorcycle accident in Indiana? We are deeply sorry for your loss, and will represent your wrongful death claim to get you the compensation you deserve for suffering general damages, as well as a loss of companionship, loss of consortium (intimacy), and an overall reduction in happiness and quality of life. Schedule a free consultation with Carl Brizzi to discuss whether or not you have a case, and if it is eligible for legal action. Don’t wait too long, as Indiana has a statute of limitations of two years for car accident claims. You have two years from the date of the accident to pursue a claim against the wrongful party.

WERE YOU WEARING A HELMET AT THE TIME OF YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?
If you are 18 years old or older, you are not required by law to wear a helmet on a motorcycle or motorbike. However, if you are 18 years or older, and you only have a motorcycle permit, you are required by law to wear a helmet and eye protection. As you can surmise, helmet factors can be relevant to personal injury cases, but they don’t always have an impact on how much compensation you are owed as a victim of a motorcycle accident. Because failing to wear a helmet can be deemed as an unnecessary risk to take on, it can have a negative impact on your motorcycle accident claim. However, if your subsequent injuries have nothing to do with your head, whether you were wearing a helmet or not is irrelevant, and it should not have any influence in the insurance company’s evaluation of your claim.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT THAT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT
After you are in a motorcycle accident that you were not responsible for causing, it is vital that you take certain steps to protect yourself full-circle. Anything you say or do can be used against you when making a claim for compensation. For this reason, you must ensure that you make good decisions, starting at the very scene of your wreck. Of course, everything you do will be dependent on how physically capable you are, as some motorcycle accident victims are unconscious for days or weeks, while others must be rushed to the emergency room for immediate medical attention. But even after a motorcycle accident, whether days or weeks later, once you are capable, you can begin to take the necessary steps toward protecting your motorcycle accident injury claim.
