What You Can Expect After a Motorcycle Accident

By knowing what to expect after a motorcycle wreck, you can help protect your right to recover compensation.

Medical Attention Will Help Build Your Case

You should seek medical attention regardless of whether you feel injured. Your injuries can take hours or days to appear. If you fail to receive medical attention soon after the accident, you may be unable to link your injuries to the accident. This can make it difficult to recover the compensation you need.

You Will Likely Receive a Call from the Insurance Company

The insurance company — yours or the other party’s insurer — will likely call you soon after your crash. The insurance adjuster may seem kind and helpful, but you need to have your guard up. The insurance company wants to save money; to accomplish this, the insurer may attempt to trick you into saying something incriminating to devalue or deny your claim.

The First Settlement Offer Will Likely Be Less Than You Deserve

You may receive a settlement offer soon after your accident occurs. This offer will likely be much less than you deserve. Do not accept any settlement offers without first speaking with your attorney. We will determine the value of your case and negotiate until the insurer issues you a fair settlement.

Damages Available in a Bowling Green Motorcycle Crash Case

When we recover compensation on a Bowling Green injury case, the monetary award includes compensation to cover a wide range of damages. We will not know the exact damages you suffered until we thoroughly investigate your case. However, you can get an idea of the types of damages available by considering the most common damages recoverable in this type of case. These include:

Medical Treatment and Related Costs

  • Ambulance transportation from the scene, or airlift if necessary
  • Emergency department evaluation and treatment
  • Hospitalization and inpatient care
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Ongoing care costs
  • Prescription medications
  • Any necessary medical or mobility devices
  • Other costs related to your injuries or treatment

Other Accident-Related Expenses

Almost any accident-related expense or loss is compensable. We will collect your bills, receipts, and other documentation when we investigate your case. Some common economic damages include:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Repair or replacement of your motorcycle
  • Replacement of your helmet and other safety gear
  • Replacement of other personal property damaged in the crash
  • Loss of services
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident

Pain and Suffering Damages

Pain and suffering and other emotional losses are noneconomic damages. There are no receipts or bills to place a dollar value on these losses, but we can help you put a fair value on them as a part of building a strong case. Pain and suffering damages are often the largest single type of damages an accident victim recovers. Noneconomic damages may include:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Other psychological damages

Wrongful Death Action

If your family member passed away from the injuries they suffered in a Bowling Green motorcycle crash, let us evaluate your situation. You may qualify to pursue damages through a wrongful death action, and we can file this type of civil suit for you. This type of action allows the surviving family of accident victims to recover compensation for expenses such as funeral and burial costs.

Let Our Team Help You Pursue Compensation for Your Injuries

We know how the Kentucky auto insurance laws work. We can evaluate your situation to determine if you can pursue a claim based on the facts of your case. We can enlist the help of accident reconstruction experts when necessary and call on other expert witnesses to build the most robust case possible. We will also collect evidence to prove the full range of your damages.

We will:

  • File a claim against the liable party
  • Represent you and help you navigate the process
  • Advocate for you and argue for the full payout you deserve

Throughout this process, we will protect your right to compensation. This will allow you to focus on your healing while we worry about everything else. We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning we do not get paid unless we recover compensation for you.

Call Today Before Time Runs Out

Kentucky only gives accident victims one year to file a lawsuit against the driver who caused their crash. Once this deadline passes, we will likely be unable to file a claim for compensation. For this reason, it is crucial that we get started on your case as soon as possible so we can make this deadline if we need to take your case to court.

Call us today at 800-800-4600. We can meet you in your home or at the hospital if you are still undergoing treatment for your injuries.
