Racine Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Don’t let an insurance company undercompensate you for the injuries and damages suffered in a motorcycle crash. Keep them honest by working with a Racine motorcycle accident lawyer.

Motorcycle wrecks can lead to life-threatening injuries, complete loss of the bike, and in some cases, even death. These types of accidents are unfortunate and are made worse when the motorcyclist is assumed to be at fault simply due to being a biker. Insurance companies, in particular, tend to immediately assume that the motorcyclist was being reckless.

This stereotype can be tough to face, and if you were hurt in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve to be compensated by the responsible party. But how do you go about filing a personal injury claim without missing vital steps?

The best way to get the compensation you are due is to hire an experienced Racine motorcycle accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg. Other than compensation, your attorney is there to negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. To do that, your attorney will investigate the accident to determine cause and fault.

Determining Cause and Fault After a Motorcycle Wreck

It’s important to determine what happened in the lead-up to your accident. As you can guess, there are many things that could cause an accident. Typical causes that will need to be considered are as follows:

  • A distracted driver
  • Someone driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Faulty parts on your bike or the other motorist’s vehicle
  • Road hazards or debris left by construction

By investigating with the cause of the collision, your Racine motorcycle accident lawyer will get a better idea of who or what is at fault. The parties responsible will affect the outcome of your claim. In order to receive the most compensation possible, you will need to name all at-fault parties in your demand for compensation.

Settling Your Motorbike Accident Claim

No one wants to be injured in a motorcycle accident, especially considering how serious the injuries tend to be. After such a crash, one of the biggest concerns you likely  face is the financial burden of the accident.

While the exact amount of compensation you are eligible for can’t be determined until all the damages you have experienced have been assessed, certain expenses you can expect to be covered include:

  • Medical expenses, both current and future
  • General pain and suffering, including emotional distress
  • Physical and emotional therapy, as deemed medically necessary
  • Lost wages, including lost income and earning potential from missing work
  • Property damage costs, such as the repair or replacement of property, including your bike

There are more expenses that may be covered—even certain things you may not have even heard of—but your attorney can explain more once you’ve come in for your free consultation.
