Motorcycle accidents can be frightening accidents which leave a potential motorcycle driver without his or her means of travel, as well as potentially serious injuries. At Russell and Hill, PLLC, we have handled these motorcycle accident personal injury claims before and have guidance for you in involving your claim.
All personal injury claims differ based upon your injuries, the insurance companies involved, and your representation. It is paramount you treat with your medical doctors until you have fully recovered or recovered enough with the guidance of your health care professionals. The reality is, sometimes people do not fully recover from their injuries and it is important to know several facts.
- The Statute of Limitations bars claimants from bringing a personal injury action more than three years after the accident itself. It is important to have counsel prior to this so they can prepare your case. The earlier attorneys are involved the easier it is for an injured person to focus on completing treatment and not dealing with insurance companies. Even if your treatment is on-going it is important to know time is not on your side with the insurance companies.
- A motorcycle accident, even a minor one, can be more catastrophic than an accident involving two cars given the nature of a motorcycle and the potential for serious injuries. A motorcycle accident and any subsequent claims or litigation are based upon the individual facts of the accident and the injuries that result. As a motorcycle driver, it is important to have an attorney who can go through your claim with you and explain the process moving forward.
- Each individual personal injury claim has its own worth and yours does as well. From repairing your motorcycle or having it considered a total loss, to finalizing a settlement to any potential litigation, you should have an attorney who has handled motorcycle accidents before and know the law.
- Beware of an attorney who promises you or guarantees you any monetary amount regarding your claim. Each claim and injury is different. It is important to find an attorney who can represent your interests and bring your case with the experience necessary to take your claim to court.
