Boise Motorcycle Head-On Collision Lawyer
A head-on collision can lead to devastating injuries—something that’s especially true if you were riding a motorcycle at the time. If you were hurt in a motorcycle wreck, you have the right to sue the person who was responsible. This could be another driver, rider, or even the entity responsible for maintaining the roads and putting up warning signs.
They key to recovering compensation is retaining a Boise motorcycle head-on collision lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to represent you and prove that you are deserving of compensation.
What Caused Your Head-On Crash?
In order to successfully recover financial compensation, we need to identify who caused the head-on collision and why. It is necessary to prove negligence because any fault you are accused of can potentially reduce the compensation you receive.
However, the other side will be working to prove that you were at fault—at least partially. Any information you can provide on what happened will be helpful in conducting our investigation. For example, if the other driver admitted to being on a cell phone, he or she would have been distracted and therefore negligent.
We Will Gather Evidence
Working on your behalf, we will gather evidence of what caused the motorcycle crash during the discovery process. This includes reviewing accident reports and speaking with witnesses.
Since the other party is unlikely to be forthcoming in providing information that could be used against them, we will also conduct depositions. This allows us to ask questions under oath about what happened immediately prior to the accident, past driving history, and if the driver was tired or something similar. The answers given can strengthen our case for why you deserve to be compensated.
Problems with Medical Bills After a Head-On
Given the severity of head-on collisions, it is common for medical bills to be extremely high. If your insurance company is refusing to pay for them or if you are being denied necessary procedures, let us know. We can work on your behalf even while the case is pending to ensure that you receive the medical care you need to recover.
It is also important to acknowledge all your symptoms to ensure that you do not have any untreated injuries, such as an undiagnosed traumatic brain injury. If the insurance company agrees to pay for some treatments and not others, we can help.
Find Out What Your Claim Is Worth
A jury will ultimately decide what your motorcycle accident claim is worth. In general, there are three main types of compensation that you could qualify for:
- Economic damages pay for tangible expenses.
- Non-economic damages cover things like pain and suffering and lost quality of life.
- Punitive damages are awarded to punish the other party when they were particularly negligent or malicious.
Keep track of all your accident-related expenses and financial losses so that we can include them when valuing your claim. While we cannot tell you exactly what your claim is worth, we can give you an idea during your consultation.
