1) Common Mistakes After a Motorcycle Accident

I met recently with a man who was involved in a serious motorcycle vehicle accident on Mike Padgett Highway. In meeting with this client, I learned about some mistakes that he had already made in his case before consulting with me. If you’re reading this, you may have questions or need help in deciding what to do in your case. I’ll tell you what I told him.

One significant mistake he made was not to try to get the names, addresses, and cell phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident. You should always do this, and also try to take photographs of the scene that will help preserve the scene of the accident. There may be important information in those photographs. Also, seek immediate medical treatment, which this man had not done, and make sure you follow the doctor’s advice.

Lastly, the client had given a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster. I advise all clients not to give recorded statements to insurance adjusters because these insurance adjusters are trained to get information that is helpful in their case and is negative toward the injured victim’s case.

All these issues are time-sensitive, and I encourage all motorcycle vehicle accident victims to consult with an experienced attorney without delay. We’re experienced in motor vehicle accidents. If you have any questions, give us a call. We’d be happy to help you.

2) Injured as a Motorcycle Passenger

Last week, I met with a lady who was seriously injured in a motorcycle vehicle accident in which she was the passenger on the motorcycle. She asked if she had case. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question. I’ll tell you what I told her. Yes, she has a case. As a passenger, she cannot be at fault in the case. She may have a claim against the driver of the motorcycle or a claim against the other vehicle involved in the accident. If you have any questions about your case, we’d be happy to talk with you. Please give us a call.

3) Motorcycle Accident Claim Value

I met with a man recently who was involved in a horrible traumatic brain injury while he was driving a motorcycle on Bobby Jones Expressway. One of the questions that this man and his family had was how we determine the value of this case. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question.

Every case is different, but there are many variables that are involved in the case. Some of the variables include medical bills, lost wages, permanent injury limitations, and the amount of insurance coverage involved. Lastly, it’s important to hire an experienced motor vehicle and motorcycle accident attorney that will make the insurance company act reasonably and pay an appropriate amount of money for the damages that motorcycle vehicle accident victims incur.
