Being the motorcyclist in a motorcycle accident has the potential to impact your life for the worse. What would normally be a fender bender in a standard car crash can be a life-ruining wreck on a bike. You can be left with severe physical wounds, post-traumatic stress disorder, or, in the worst possible case, grief from the death of a loved one. Your troubles won’t end after the accident, either; you’re likely to have medical expenses piled onto you, deal with lost income or benefits, and face sky-high property damages.

You need relentless representation as a bike crash victim. The team of motorcycle accident lawyers at Kermani LLP are among the best practicing today.

Understanding Motorcycle Accidents: Causes and Consequences

It’s important to understand that in two-thirds of motorcycle accidents that involve another vehicle, the motorcyclist is not at fault. Drivers of larger vehicles tend to have a harder time seeing motorcycles; combine this with factors such as distracted driving, and you can understand how it is that drivers of passenger cars are the ones to cause motorcycle wrecks more often than not.

This is all the incentive necessary to drive defensively and be aware of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents, which include:

  • Another vehicle turns in front of you;
  • Another vehicle rear-ends you;
  • A car door is opened in front of you;
  • Another vehicle intrudes into your lane;
  • Riding in a group.

Some bike accidents are not caused by another vehicle. Such accidents can include:

  • Slippery or wet roads;
  • Your front brake locking up;
  • You navigate a turn at an excessively high speed;
  • Driving drunk, high, or otherwise intoxicated.

No matter the cause of an accident, a motorcycle crash has the potential to result in your untimely death. Exercising caution, awareness, and good judgment is key to avoiding grave consequences. If you have lived through a motorcycle wreck attributable to the recklessness or negligent behavior of another driver, contact a motorcycle injury lawyer with Kermani LLP today.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents and Their Impact

Motorbikes simply do not offer the same protection to their operators as passenger cars. As such, any accident that might be minor to a passenger car operator could have debilitating effects on a motorcycle rider. Common injuries and the ways they affect riders include:

  • Internal damage: Trauma to the body can cause internal bleeding and organ injury.
  • Broken bones: This happens typically when riders attempt to catch themselves in a fall.
  • Spinal cord injuries: A spinal cord injury can result in numbness or even paralysis below the point of injury.
  • Road rash: When riders slide sideways across the asphalt after impact, they sustain nerve, skin, and muscle damage.
  • Muscle damage: Riders can suffer from ruptured muscle tissue after a crash.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: Especially common when riders don’t wear helmets, an impact to the head suffered throughout a motorcycle accident can cause deleterious long-term effects such as memory loss and seizures.
  • Loss of limbs: Sustaining a severe enough injury in a motorcycle accident may necessitate the amputation of limbs.

Navigating Liability and Legal Rights in Motorcycle Accidents

Evidence helps establish liability, and proving the liability of the responsible party is necessary to secure compensation for your damages. Unfortunately, proving liability can be difficult thanks to a variety of factors. For example, what party would be responsible for compensating you in the event of a hit-and-run accident? A qualified motorcycle accident injury attorney can help you determine liability and protect your legal rights throughout a motorcycle injury case.

Helmet Use and Insurance Concerns in Accident Cases

You may be concerned that an insurance company can bar you from receiving compensation after an accident if you are not wearing a helmet. This is untrue. Though you always should wear a helmet when riding, you can receive compensation even if you were not doing so in the course of an accident. However, state laws, the circumstances of the accident, and the extent of your injuries may affect your compensation. As such, hiring a motorcycle injury lawyer is paramount to maximizing your compensation.

Seeking Justice: Compensation in Motorcycle Accident Cases

Compensation is how justice is served in a motorcycle accident case. As the victim, you will be rewarded compensation based on the extent of the damages you suffered in the wreck. Damages can include:

  • Property damage;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Punitive damages;
  • Lost wages;
  • Medical expenses.

Kermani LLP’s motorcycle injury attorneys are equipped to win the full extent of your compensation.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident: Critical Steps

After you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, there are some crucial steps you must take:

  1. Contact the police: Getting the police on the scene should be a priority. They can compile a police report that may be useful for your case later.
  2. Seek medical attention: Medical care is critical for your health and establishes a paper trail that can be used as evidence to strengthen your case.
  3. Collect evidence: This means taking pictures of both vehicles involved in the wreck as well as your injuries. A motorcycle crash lawyer can assist in this by taking depositions from others involved in the wreck, obtaining and reviewing medical records, calculating damages, and interviewing witnesses.
  4. Never admit fault: Even a simple apology can be interpreted as admitting fault. This can sink your case!

The Benefits of Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

You always have the option to represent yourself in any legal matter, the wise thing to do after a motorcycle wreck is to hire a motorcycle accident attorney. This is the best way to fight against the responsible party and insurance companies, who both have their team of attorneys that it will take a legal professional to successfully challenge. When you procure the services of Kermani LLP, you can begin to put your life back together while an expert motorcycle accident attorney firm handles the complex issues. These include:

  • Gathering evidence;
  • Evaluating your claim;
  • Understanding the legal timeline;
  • Providing robust legal representation;
  • Negotiating with insurers;
  • Maximizing your compensation.

Turning to Kermani LLP reduces stress through a most stressful process and gives you peace of mind.

How Kermani Law Firm Champions Motorcycle Accident Victims

An effective motorcycle crash lawyer champions victims of motorcycle crashes. Kermani LLP does this by employing a robust litigation strategy to ensure you are awarded maximum compensation. When you trust a motorcycle attorney from Kermani LLP with your case, they will strive to prove the negligence of the other party to build the strongest case possible.

Kermani’s Approach to Maximizing Your Compensation

An expert motorcycle crash attorney will not accept the first offer an insurance company makes. Kermani LLP knows what you deserve and the best way to make sure you get it. Their firm of trusted lawyers will play hardball with the insurance company and ensure you are compensated for each and every one of your damages.

Proving Negligence and Building a Strong Case

Building a strong case depends entirely on demonstrating the other party’s liability, and this will likely mean proving negligence. You need a skilled motorcycle wreck legal solicitor to do this effectively. Kermani LLP’s motorcycle accident law firm is equipped with comprehensive knowledge of negligence law and can prove negligence based on four legal principles:

  1. Duty: All vehicle operators must obey traffic laws and demonstrate care to prevent injury.
  2. Breach: Failure to obey traffic laws and demonstrate care represents a breach of duty.
  3. Causation: If a breach causes demonstrable harm, causation is established. 
  4. Damages: Damages constitute the harm and losses suffered by a victim as a result of breached duty.

Establishing all four of these components is key to building a strong case. The motorcycle injury attorneys at Kermani LLP are professionals in this arena.

Kermani’s Commitment: Personalized Support and Proven Success

When you turn to a motorcycle accidents lawyer from Kermani LLP, you are trusting in a firm that has successfully litigated thousands of cases since 2011.

What is the average payout for a motorcycle accident?

Typically, a motorcycle crash leads to pretty substantial injuries. One of the biggest reasons for this is a lack of protection for bikers, even when they’re wearing the proper helmet and clothing. That said, the average payout for a motorcycle accident claim usually hovers around $50,000 to $80,000.

How is fault determined in motorcycle accident cases?

After a motorcycle accident, police will be called out to the scene. They’ll do an initial investigation to try to determine what caused the crash. They’ll note this in their official report. Sometimes, the fault is easy to determine, like when one driver was speeding or drinking while driving. At other times, the fault may be difficult to identify until an independent investigation is conducted later. For example, if a defective part caused the crash, then that wouldn’t be obvious until an investigation revealed the truth.

What types of compensation can I claim after a motorcycle accident?

After a motorcycle accident, you can claim compensation that’s equal to the amount of losses you experience. This could include damages in the form of current and future medical costs, the expenses associated with repairing your vehicle, the income you’ve lost from not going to work, pain and suffering, and any other financial loss you incurred due to your injury and accident.

Are there specific laws that affect motorcycle accident claims?

In general, motorcycle riders are subject to the same laws as other motorists on the road. Everyone on the roadway has a legal duty to provide for the care and safety of other individuals on the road. Bikers do have some specific laws that apply to them, though, like lane splitting. While lane splitting is legal in California, it’s not in other states, like Georgia.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit?

In general, you have two years from the date of a motorcycle accident to file a compensation claim. There are very limited circumstances in which you’d have longer, like if your accident occurred when you were a minor.

Should I accept an insurance settlement offer before speaking to an attorney?

No! It’s never a good idea to accept a quick settlement offer from an insurance adjuster before fully exploring the severity of your losses and potentially speaking to a lawyer first. Insurance companies have an incentive to minimize your claim and if you accept a low-ball offer, then you won’t be able to seek out future compensation for the same accident.

What if the other party involved in the accident was uninsured?

If the other party was uninsured, then you may still have options like filing a claim with your own insurance company or seeking out a personal injury claim against the negligent driver.

How are pain and suffering damages calculated in motorcycle accident cases?

Pain and suffering are typically calculated based on a multiplier amount. First, all the economic losses are calculated. From there, they will multiply that figure by a multiplier (between 1.5 and 5) to determine how much pain and suffering compensation should be awarded.
