Salt Lake City Car-Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Make sure that your rights are protected after a motorcycle-hit-by-car accident. Motorcycle accidents often lead to serious injuries that can require surgery or a prolonged recovery time. Many of these injuries develop into permanent disabilities.
Immediately after the accident, the priority must first be on your safety and your health. Go to the emergency room so that you can be thoroughly examined. Afterward, contact a Salt Lake City Car-Motorcycle Accident Lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates so that we can begin working on your case.
Car Drivers Have an Unfair Advantage
There is a public perception of motorcycle riders that depicts them as being lawless or reckless. This is typically untrue, but this stereotype can place car drivers at an unfair advantage in any accident liability case.
An opposing attorney is almost certain to attempt to portray you in this light in order to pin the blame for the accident on you. When you work with one of our motorcycle attorneys, we will develop your case based on the facts of the accident and combat any baseless stereotyping in order to ensure that your case is treated fairly and with respect.
We Can Represent You in Court
If you were in a motorcycle-hit-by-car accident, you may assume that the car driver will take responsibility for the crash. The majority of the time, he or she will deny liability and so will the insurance company in an attempt to avoid paying you what you deserve. When this happens, you may need to fight them in court.
The process of filing a lawsuit and going to court is complex and requires an understanding of state law and legal procedure. Without this experience, you could forget to file certain forms, schedule a hearing incorrectly, miss evidence, or overlook something else.
This makes it advantageous for the other party if you represent yourself. Allow us to help you every step of the way and deprive the at-fault driver of this advantage.
We can help you throughout your case:
- Gathering evidence
- Speaking with eyewitnesses
- Filing your lawsuit
- Working with your doctor to determine your current and future medical bills
- Protecting your rights
- Representing you in and out of court
Financial Compensation for Your Injuries
Given the size difference between a car and a motorcycle, a motorcycle rider is far more likely to suffer serious injuries in this type of collision. You need to receive enough compensation to pay for your current medical bills, but you also should be compensated for how your life will be impacted going forward.
You should be compensated for any expense or damage that results from your motorcycle accident:
- Lost wages due to an inability to work while recovering
- Transportation expenses
- Retrofitting your home to accommodate an injury
- Hiring help during your recovery
- Any other financial losses you have suffered due to your accident
