What Compensation Can Your Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Get You?

Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer

The main reason you hire an Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer is so they can get you compensation for your injuries. You can file your own insurance claim. But if it isn’t approved, you may not know what to do next. That’s why it’s a good idea to meet with an Atlanta accident attorney as soon as possible after your motorcycle crash.

Motorcycle Crashes Are Some of the Most Serious Types of Accidents

Of all the cases our Atlanta accident attorneys handle, motorcycle crashes may be the most devastating. Aside from tractor-trailer accidents, there are very few things that can cause life-threatening injuries like a motorcycle accident.

Normally, when we first speak with a motorcycle accident victim, they are still recovering from their injuries. Some are still in the hospital or a rehabilitation center. The last thing they’re going to want to do is fight with the insurance company.

There Is Very Little to Protect You from Life-Threatening Injuries

One of the things about motorcycle accidents is that there’s nothing standing between you and the other vehicle. The human body simply cannot withstand this kind of impact. Many motorcycle accident victims end up in the hospital, needing surgery and long-term physical therapy.

Even if you aren’t in the hospital for more than a day or two, you may be out of work for quite some time. There’s no reason why you should have to suffer. This is why your Atlanta accident attorney will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.

They’ll also try to do so as quickly as possible, so you don’t have to stress over how you’re going to pay your bills.

Many Motorcycle Riders Are Thrown from Their Bike During the Crash

If you ride a motorcycle, then you know how dangerous it can be if you’re thrown from your bike. You don’t even have to be going very fast for this to happen. Our Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyers have helped dozens of clients who ended up thrown from their bikes during the crash.

When you’re thrown from your motorcycle, you will likely land on the asphalt. Some accident victims are thrown into a tree or guardrail. This kind of impact is likely to cause a traumatic brain injury.

This is the sort of injury that can transform your life. You may not be able to work ever again. In fact, you may not be able to care for yourself after suffering this sort of injury.

What Kind of Injuries Do Motorcycle Accident Victims Suffer?

You may be wondering what kind of injuries you may suffer in a motorcycle accident. Many of these injuries can occur in any sort of motor vehicle accident. For example, you can suffer a traumatic brain injury in a truck accident or even a car accident.

While it’s possible to suffer these life-threatening injuries in any type of crash, the following injuries are more common in a motorcycle accident:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Burn injuries
  • Lacerations and contusions
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Amputation

If you suffer any of these injuries, there’s a good chance you’ll be entitled to significant damages. Your Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer will demand whatever damages they think they can prove.

You May Need Extensive Medical Care Both in the Short-Term and Long-Term

Many of the motorcycle accident victims our associates help end up needing extensive medical care. This includes both short-term care such as hospitalizations and surgery. It also includes long-term treatment such as physical therapy and occupational therapy.

The good news is that your Atlanta accident attorney will demand that you be compensated for this care. Not only will they demand that you be reimbursed for current medical bills. But they’ll also demand that you receive compensation for any future medical bills you may experience.

Your Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Demand Compensation for Your Injuries

Again, the reason you hired an Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer is so they can get you compensation for your injuries. They have the knowledge and experience necessary to get you the maximum amount of compensation.

When your lawyer files your initial complaint, they’ll have to list your damages. These may include some or all of the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future income

Some people assume that they’ll be entitled to significant compensation simply because they were involved in a motorcycle accident. However, you can only receive damages for injuries you actually suffered.

For example, if you only suffered whiplash, you’ll only be compensated for whiplash. Somebody who suffered whiplash and a few broken bones will receive a lot less than someone with a spinal cord injury.

Will You Receive Full Damages or Will Your Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Settle?

It’s important to point out that you will not receive your full demand for damages. This is because most motorcycle accident lawsuits settle long before trial. Any settlement will be less than your initial demand. An experienced lawyer knows how much money to ask for at the beginning with this in mind.

Even if your case goes to trial and you win, your damages may be for less than your full demand. If the judge or jury finds that you were partly at fault for the crash, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

If You Do Settle, Your Atlanta Accident Attorney Will Make Sure Your Medical Bills Are Covered

Regardless of whether your case settles or goes to trial, your Atlanta accident attorney will fight to make sure you’re made whole. At a minimum, they’ll make sure you’re reimbursed for any medical bills you paid out-of-pocket.

They’ll also have to make sure your primary healthcare insurance carrier is reimbursed for any money they paid out in relation to your crash.
