Compensation for Injuries through Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits

A motorcycle accident lawsuit must be filed if the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable settlement for your motorcycle accident injuries. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are prepared to go to trial to help you recover the monetary compensation you are entitled to.

Most legal claims do not result in a jury trial. The vast majority of motorcycle crash lawsuits settle either before a case is filed or after it is filed but before a jury trial.

That being said, we prepare each client’s case as if it will go to trial.

Insurance company adjustors handle claims for a living. They can tell the difference between a lawyer that is prepared and one that is not. As a result of our thorough preparation, we believe we are more likely to settle our client’s cases before trial and also to obtain better recoveries for our clients. And, if a case does go to trial, we are ready.

Who is Responsible for Your Motorcycle Accident

Our investigation and preparation of a motorcycle accident lawsuit involves determining who is responsible for the accident. In some cases, more than one party may have caused the accident. For example, a negligent driver may have caused your accident while a defective helmet increased the severity of your injuries.

Potential responsible parties in a bike accident lawsuit may include:

  • Drivers of other vehicles
  • Manufacturer of the motorcycle
  • Manufacturer of parts or equipment
  • Motorcycle repair shop
  • Motorcycle rental company
  • Government entity responsible for the design, construction and/or maintenance of the road or intersection

It is important to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer quickly. If a government entity is responsible for your accident, the time frame for making a claim against the government is much shorter than against private parties. A formal claim must be submitted to the government as a prerequisite for later filing a lawsuit. If the claim is not properly made, the lawsuit against the government will be barred forever.

Single Bike Accidents

Single bike motorcycle accidents occur when there are no other vehicles involved. A single bike accident can be caused by a phantom vehicle, where there is no physical contact between the vehicle and the bike and the vehicle flees the scene before they can be identified. This is similar to a hit and run accident between a vehicle and a motorcycle rider in which the unidentified vehicle leaves the scene.

In single bike accidents involving phantom vehicles, insurance companies sometimes do not believe that another vehicle was involved. Insurance companies make money by maximizing the premiums they take in and minimizing the claims they pay out, so it’s not very surprising that they would disbelieve another vehicle caused the accident. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer knows how to establish the credibility of injured people so that you receive the compensation you deserve. Physical proof and witnesses, if available, can help win your motorcycle accident lawsuit.

Single bike accidents can also occur as a result of dangerous or hazardous road conditions. Construction zones are a good example. Construction areas can have unmarked lanes, hidden road signs, dangerous roads, obstacles in the road and other dangerous condition. A motorcycle accident attorney can gather the evidence and present your case to maximize your chances of recovery.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims

Third-Party Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims

A third-party insurance claim is a motorcycle accident claim that is made against a third party, such as the insurance company of another driver, a motorcycle rental company, a government agency or other third parties. If the claim does not settle, a third-party motorcycle accident lawsuit is filed against the responsible parties.

First-Party Motorcycle Accident Claims

A first-party insurance claim is a motorcycle accident claim that is made against your insurance company based on your uninsured motorist (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage.

An uninsured motorist claim is made if you are involved in a motorcycle crash with another driver that does not have insurance, or if you are involved in a single bike accident.

An underinsured motorist claim is made if you involved in an accident with another driver that has insurance, but their insurance limits are not enough to compensate you for your injuries.
