Why Do You Need a Bountiful Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
An experienced attorney is highly recommended in motorcycle accidents. They can help with all the legal work involved in your claim, but most importantly, an attorney can protect you from unfair insurance tactics and allegations of comparative negligence.
Insurance companies often try to settle claims before victims complete medical treatment so they can pay less for the claim. Some claims adjusters try to obtain statements from motorcyclists before they talk to a lawyer. What you say in a statement and in response to questions asked by a claims adjuster could hurt your case.
Another common tactic used by insurance providers is to allege the rider contributed to the cause of the motorcycle accident. Under Utah’s comparative negligence statute, if you are partially responsible for causing the motorcycle crash, your compensation is reduced by your level of fault.
Our Bountiful motorcycle accident lawyers protect you from these aggressive, unfair, and sometimes bad faith insurance tactics. We handle all communications with the insurance company. Instead of worrying about the insurance company taking advantage of you, you focus on your recovery, and your attorney focuses on protecting your right to full compensation for injuries, damages, and losses.
Motorcycle Accidents Cause Traumatic Injuries and Deaths
Motorcyclists are at a high risk of traumatic injuries and death in a crash. The motorcycle does not provide much protection from the impact of another vehicle. The rider may wear a motorcycle helmet and other protective gear, but he is still vulnerable to catastrophic injuries in a crash.
Common motorcycle injuries our motorcycle accident lawyers in Bountiful have handled include, but are not limited to:
- Road Rash, Lacerations, and Disfigurement
- Broken Bones and Fractures
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Skull Fractures
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Internal Organ Failure
- Facial Injuries
- Loss of Limbs
- Wrongful Death
A rider injured in a motorcycle accident sustains physical injuries, financial damages, and emotional damages. The extent of the damages is unique to each accident. Common financial damages in a motorcycle accident claim include medical expenses, personal care costs, lost income, and property damage.
However, you are also entitled to seek compensation for your non-economic damages. Non-economic damages, include your physical pain, emotional suffering, disabilities, scarring, and mental anguish. Under Utah’s no-fault insurance laws, your injuries or damages must meet a certain threshold to pursue a claim against the other party. Talk to our Bountiful motorcycle accident attorneys to determine if you have a personal injury claim against another motorist after a motorcycle crash.
