Boise Road Construction Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riding your motorcycle in a construction zone can be incredibly hazardous, especially if road crews haven’t taken steps to create a safe place to ride. If you were hurt in a motorcycle wreck because of an unsecured construction site, you could be entitled to compensation.
Hiring a Boise road construction motorcycle accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to represent you is the best way to bring your claim to a successful conclusion.
Was Your Motorcycle the Only Vehicle Involved?
Most bikers think that they can’t sue unless another vehicle was involved in the collision. This is not necessarily the case, however. If you were involved in a single-vehicle accident because of unsafe road conditions caused by roadwork, you can sue the construction company responsible for the hazard involved.
We Need to Determine What Happened
During your consultation, we will ask a variety of questions to determine what caused your motorcycle crash. Be as detailed as possible. In order to file a lawsuit, someone else must be to blame, so your description of the accident matters a great deal. Some common signs of negligence are as follows:
- Failing to put up road cones directing traffic
- Not having road crews and traffic flaggers to physically direct traffic
- No warning or detour signs
- Loose gravel all over the road
- Large potholes with no markers or warnings
- Construction equipment suddenly entering the road, causing an accident
- Failing to illuminate nighttime construction work
Getting Money for Your Motorcycle Injuries
It’s common for motorcycle accident victims to assume that they will be fairly compensated when someone else was at fault for their injuries. This is not necessarily the case. In most situations, you need to file a claim to pursue damages from the negligent party, who is unlikely to admit guilt.
As a motorcycle rider, you have an uphill battle to fight because of the common negative public perception regarding motorcyclists. Riders are thought to be reckless and dangerous, even when this is not true. You need an attorney to prove otherwise and gather evidence proving that you were the victim and deserve compensation.
Evidence must be gathered to document the financial losses and expenses you have suffered as a result of the accident. Things like medical records, bills, invoices, and statements can all be used to prove these economic damages.
You can also receive money for your lost quality of life caused by the roadwork crash and your injuries. This is especially important when your motorcycle accident has produced a serious injury, such as limb loss, paralyzing spinal damage, or a traumatic brain injury. These injuries can all dramatically decrease your enjoyment of life, and this needs to be factored into the compensation you ultimately receive.
