Recovering from a motorcycle crash is rarely inexpensive. If someone else was at fault, a Coeur d’Alene motorcycle wreck attorney can help you recover the compensation you are owed.

Every biker knows that his or her risk of serious injury is much higher in a crash than it is for drivers of other vehicles. Because of this, most motorcyclists are excellent drivers who take all the necessary precautions.

Unfortunately, when a wreck does occur, people often assume that the motorcyclist was driving recklessly and must have been at fault for the crash. Making matters worse, insurance companies love to take advantage of this.

You don’t have to let an insurance company play games with your rights after a motorcycle wreck. Instead, let a Coeur d’Alene motorcycle accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates go to work on your behalf and keep the insurer honest.

Insurance Problems

As mentioned, bikers often get unfairly stereotyped when accidents happen. Insurers have been known to use these unfair biases to push fault for a crash onto the motorcyclist involved, which then reduces how much compensation they must pay.

This doesn’t have to happen to you. By working with an attorney from our firm, you’ll be able to deal with the insurer on equal terms. We’ll build a case based on evidence that clearly demonstrates who was actually at fault—whether that was the driver of another car involved in the accident or a government agency for failing to fix unsafe road conditions.

Collecting Damages

Your motorcycle accident lawyer will ensure that you receive compensation that fully covers all of the damages and losses incurred by the crash. Some of these will be financial, while others will be intangible losses that reflect your lost quality of life.

We also need to ensure that your future accident-related needs are accounted for. Whether this is for medical costs far into the future or for the damage that a disability will do to your earning potential, it should be included in the compensation you receive.

Damages for Your Injury

Detailed below are some of the damages—both financial and non-economic—that you might be able to include in your injury claim:

  • Cost of medical care, including mobility equipment and medication
  • Lost earning potential and income
  • Motorcycle repair or replacement
  • Home renovations made necessary by a new disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and disfigurement
  • Lost enjoyment of life
