Let Us Help You After A Motorcycle Accident
Motorcyclists face many hurdles following accidents when they try to file a claim with an insurer. For one, many motorcyclists are seriously injured in an accident, and their claims are worth a considerable amount of money. For another, some insurers try to push responsibility for the accident onto a biker’s shoulders. For these and other reasons, many injured motorcyclists and their families are worried they will not receive fair compensation.
Help is here. At Delventhal Law Office, our team has detailed knowledge of Indiana’s accident laws. We can work to show another driver on the road was at fault for the wreck, and we will aggressively negotiate a claim for compensation. Contact a Huntertown motorcycle accident attorney today.
INDIANA IS A FAULT STATE
Some states follow a no-fault system where each injured motorist is legally responsible for using their own insurance to obtain compensation. That is not the system in Indiana. Any injured motorcyclist can sue any party who bears at least partial responsibility for the accident. In practice, this means an injured biker might sue:
- A driver on the road who struck them or forced them off the road
- Any entity responsible for a defective road that contributed to the crash
- A mechanic who did negligent work on the motorcycle or on a vehicle that caused the crash
- The manufacturer of the motorcycle, if a defect contributed to the wreck
- The manufacturer of a defective car, if the defect (such as faulty brakes) contributed to the accident
In many cases, the party at fault is the driver of a motor vehicle. Many drivers are completely oblivious to motorcyclists on the road. They often complain that the bike blends in with other traffic or that bikers are in a blind spot. Unsurprisingly, many motorists pull directly in front of a biker, causing a crash, or else strike them. When a driver has been negligent, we can sue them on behalf of our injured clients.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A HUNTERTOWN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER
Some people assume they can handle their own insurance claim. That might be true if only the bike was damaged, or if you suffered only the most minor physical injuries. However, any injury worth a couple thousand in medical care probably warrants hiring an attorney.
A Huntertown motorcycle accident lawyer can help in the following ways:
- Visit the scene of the accident and take photographs of any hazards, such as tree branches that obscure a stop sign or a pothole that caused a biker to lose control.
- Interview all witnesses to the accident to get their perspective on what happened.
- Gather evidence to prove the full losses our client suffered, including pain and suffering.
- Handle all communications with insurance adjusters.
- Negotiate with the insurance companies for a favorable settlement.
With our team in your corner, you can finally focus on getting well and enjoy peace of mind.
