How Can We Help?

LEXINGTON MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Any type of accident can be life-changing, but if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, the injuries that you suffered can be particularly traumatic.

With Lexington’s picturesque scenery, rolling hills, and mild weather, a motorcycle ride can be an ideal way to spend a weekend afternoon. However, according to the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, there has been a troubling increase in motorcycle accidents in the state since 2014. In 2016 alone, more than 100 Kentucky motorcyclists were involved in deadly crashes.

While you can reduce your risk of injury by wearing a helmet — roughly two-thirds of motorcyclists killed in the state in 2016 were not wearing a helmet — you can never eliminate the risk entirely. Injuries happen, some of them severe, and when they do, you want a lawyer who will fight to get you the money you need. The Lexington motorcycle accident lawyers at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers are here to help.

Count on the Lexington Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Hughes & Coleman to Fight for You

A motorcycle accident can be devastating, even life-changing. Without the protective features found in cars and trucks, such as seatbelts, airbags, or a steel frame, a motorcycle leaves you vulnerable to the full brunt of a collision. For that reason, motorcycle accident injuries are often debilitating, and the fatality rate is much higher than for other motorists.

The Hughes & Coleman team can help you put your life back together after a motorcycle accident. Our Lexington office is conveniently located on E. New Circle Road, right next to the Golden Corral restaurant. When you come in for your free, no-risk case evaluation, we can address many of the questions you might have about your accident, such as:

  • When will I receive compensation to pay my medical bills?
  • How can I support myself if I have to miss work?
  • What if the other driver denies responsibility?
  • What if the insurance company tries to reduce my claim?
  • Can I still collect compensation if the accident was partly my fault?

The Hughes & Coleman team wants you to take these worries off your mind and trust them to our legal team. We have over 100 years worth of experience handling motorcycle accident claims and, as such, know how to deal with insurance companies to ensure you the best possible chance at getting the compensation you deserve. The Hughes & Coleman support staff is always available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. At Hughes & Coleman, our clients are like family to us, and we have a singular focus on always doing what is in your best interest.

Let Hughes & Coleman Handle Communication with the Insurance Company

To collect compensation for any type of motor vehicle collision, including a motorcycle accident, one typically must go through an insurance company. That is because your compensation will likely come from either your insurer, the other driver’s insurer, or a combination of both. How you handle the negotiation process with the insurance company will determine how much compensation you receive.

A Small Misstep Could Jeopardize Your Claim

Often, an accident victim will receive a call from an insurance adjuster within a day or two of the crash. The adjuster will ask a few questions, claiming they just want to confirm the details of the accident. While these questions might seem innocuous, it is a good idea to refrain from answering any questions beyond the basics (e.g., where and when did the accident occur, what type of accident) before speaking with an attorney.

The Insurer Might Attempt to Lowball You

Another possibility is that the insurance company will make a quick settlement offer. Again, be wary of accepting it without talking to an attorney. More than likely, it will not be for the full amount of compensation you are eligible to receive.

The Hughes & Coleman Team Helps You Collect Full Damages for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries

When you work with Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, we take over all communication and negotiation with the insurance company, making sure you keep the upper hand throughout the process. If we cannot get the insurer to agree to a fair settlement, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit and argue your case before a jury.

Our previous motorcycle accident clients have received settlements including some or all of the following types of damages:

  • Current and future medical bills;
  • Lost wages;
  • Reduced earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional anguish;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Scarring and disfigurement.

To recover the damages you deserve, we gather evidence and face down the insurance company when it tries to pay you less. Our first goal is to obtain a fair settlement out of court, but if the insurance company does not cooperate, our attorneys will not hesitate to file a lawsuit and argue your case in court.

Our Attorneys Do Not Get Paid Until You Do

If you decide to retain our services after your initial consultation, we get to work right away, gathering evidence and assembling it to make our case thorough and compelling. The evidence we collect to help win you compensation might include:

  • Police reports;
  • Witness statements;
  • Surveillance footage;
  • Accident reconstruction;
  • Expert witness testimony;
  • Statements from the other driver.

When you work with a lawyer from Hughes & Coleman, you do not have to worry about cost, because we work on contingency only. That means you do not pay us unless you recover. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, so call us today to set up your free case evaluation with a member of our team. Call 800-800-4600.
