Speak With A Lawyer Immediately After A Motorcycle Accident
Operators and passengers of motorcycles involved in a crash of any type need a legal advocate who can fight for their rights and best interests from the very beginning. Unlike all other accident victims, people on motorcycles do not get access to no-fault insurance benefits by default. This means that you may be responsible for expensive medical care and that you may not be reimbursed for lost wages while you recover from injuries that prevent you from working.
The only way you may get access to no-fault insurance coverage in Michigan after a motorcycle crash is if another vehicle with more than two wheels was involved in the crash.
In any event, you should seek legal counsel with an experienced motor vehicle accident injury attorney as soon as you have received appropriate medical care. Motorcycle accident injuries are usually serious and catastrophic, requiring specialized medical care, extended hospital stays, perhaps multiple surgeries and considerable investments in rehabilitation.
What Legal Options Do You Have For Recovery?
When life-altering injuries are caused by another driver’s negligence, you need an experienced trial lawyer fast. As the motorcyclist, you could even be up to half at fault for the accident and still have a good case for a first-party (against your own insurance) or third-party (against the other driver’s insurance) lawsuit for losses and damages.
At Atnip & Associates, PLLC, we will help you access insurance coverage from multiple policies, as necessary. Your past and present medical expenses may require claims through your health insurance and motorcycle insurance policies. Your lost wages may require a lawsuit against the at-fault driver’s insurance. When insurance companies try to minimize the amount they will pay you (and they will), you may need to go to court for your full and fair compensation.
We may have to fight for future damages and losses, including:
- Surgeries and hospital bills
- Physical therapy costs
- Home modifications
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income earning capacity
- Wrongful death benefits
