I am a personal injury lawyer dedicated to helping you. Whether you have been injured in a car accident or have suffered a fall, I can help you make the insurance company pay you what you are entitled to. As a former insurance defense attorney, I know how the insurance companies work.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that thousands of motorcyclists are killed each year in the U.S, while countless millions are injured. Liability issues that surround motorcycle accidents can be very different than car-related liabilities. Motorcycle accidents present their own inherent set of legal complexities. Because of that, these types of personal-injury claims must be addressed by a personal-injury attorney who is highly familiar with motorcycle-accident claims.
In the legal realm, liability in the majority of motorcycle accidents is ruled by what is called ‘the law of negligence.’ Negligence is determined by a person behaving in a careless manner, causing injury to another. In order to legally determine negligence in motorcycle accidents, certain elements must be clearly shown by the plaintiff (person making the claim):
Without exception, the burden of proof rests on the plaintiff’s shoulders to prove negligence on the part of the defendant. This can get very complicated; and because of this, a well-experienced personal-injury attorney needs to become your staunch ally.
The monetary value of a motorcycle-injury claim includes two types of valuations: 1) settlement value which has to do with money you would reasonably hope to receive in a settlement with no trial and 2) trial value which is money you would reasonably hope to receive at trial. If you agree on settlement value, you will receive money, but at a significantly lower amount, since you are settling for smaller compensation to avoid the possibility of losing at trial.
