After a motorcycle accident, you should get medical care for any injuries immediately, file a police report, and consider legal representation to help identify the at-fault party and pursue financial compensation. Our team can establish your right to monetary recovery by proving the at-fault driver owed you a duty of care but failed to provide it.
When we represent you, we tell you about the details of your case. That includes what you should do after getting in a motorcycle accident as you seek financial compensation for the at-fault driver’s negligence. We will prepare your case file and submit it to the at-fault party and their insurance company. We also assign a financial value to your injuries, including treatment costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Track Your Motorcycle Accident Medical Expenses
The costs of a motorcycle accident often start right at the accident scene with an ambulance ride to on-site emergency medical care. When our team represents you, we make sure we include these costs in the injury part of your case. Other medical expenses we help you recover include:
- Rehab and therapy
- Hospital admissions
- Surgical procedures
- Required medications
- Assistive medical devices
- In-home medical support
Our MD Accident Law team will help you track the extent of your injuries and their financial costs. You can also recover the costs of traveling to and from follow-up medical appointments.
Track Your Injury-Related Accident Expenses
Medical expenses are only one form of accident-related compensation. We also help you prove your right to the following recoverable damages:
- Physical disability or lasting scarring or disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Property damage, including diminished value
Because a motorcycle accident can cause psychological trauma, we also help you obtain records of any counseling you receive for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, or other psychological conditions you experience after the crash. If your family lost a loved one, we help you recover the costs of grief counseling or any other professional support you need.
You Could Request Wrongful Death Damages
According to Insurance Information Institute (III) statistics, 5,014 people were fatally injured in motorcycle accidents in 2019. If your family lost a loved one due to a negligent driver, we help you fight for compensation, including:
- Funeral expenses
- Burial expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of guidance
You may have other wrongful death damages, which we will go over with you in detail. We know how hard it can be to lose someone you love, so we let your family deal with its emotional recovery while we focus on financial recovery for you.
