Pleasant Grove Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Recovering from your injuries after a motorcycle accident is only half the battle. Let a Pleasant Grove motorcycle crash lawyer help you with the other half—winning you the compensation you deserve.
If you’re an injured motorcyclist, you don’t have to be reminded of how difficult life is after a crash. Serious injuries, long hospital stays, and weeks away from work are the norm after motorcycle accidents. These negative effects often leave victims unsure of how to proceed.
Many injured motorcyclists choose to pursue compensation from the person responsible for their accident by filing a personal injury claim. That’s a great way to get the compensation you need to protect your financial health, but how do you make sure your claim will be successful?
Hiring a Pleasant Grove motorcycle accident lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates will improve your chance of filing a successful injury claim—all while reducing your stress so you can focus your energy on recovering from your injuries.
Watch Out for the Insurance Company
They may claim to be on your side, but insurance companies rarely back up that claim with their actions. They’re looking to shortchange their customers, and that goes double for motorcyclists.
Insurers are in the business of making money, and fairly compensating clients after a crash opposes that money-making mission. These companies are aware of the “reckless biker” stereotype that unfairly suggests that motorcyclists are responsible for their crashes because they are lawless drivers. And they will use that stereotype against you if they can.
If they can prove that you hold some of the responsibility for the crash and your injuries, insurers can reduce their obligation to compensate you. That might translate to settlement offers that are far too low—or no offer at all.
Of course, that’s unacceptable after you’ve been injured in a Pleasant Grove motorcycle accident. You need fair compensation to get your life back. A qualified lawyer with our firm will hold greedy insurers accountable to help make sure you aren’t shortchanged.
Hire a Lawyer to Build Your Case
A Pleasant Grove motorcycle crash attorney will have resources and connections that the general public doesn’t have. We’ll use those resources to gather evidence to prove what happened in the accident and how you, the motorcyclist, could not have been responsible.
This process could include the following:
- Obtaining video and photo evidence
- Going over the police report
- Speaking with witnesses
- Talking to your doctor
Getting the Compensation You Deserve
After your Pleasant Grove motorcycle accident, you are likely facing all kinds of expenses. Every single expense and loss tied to your accident should be accounted for in your claim.
When you team up with an attorney, part of the lawyer’s job will be helping you identify and place a value on all of your damages. This process can be difficult without a lawyer’s help. You might know how much your medical bills cost, but what about the cost of physical therapy for the next few years? How much should you ask for to account for your pain and suffering?
Your attorney will help you list all your damages and place an appropriate value on your claim. Your damages might include the following:
- Healthcare expenses
- Motorcycle replacement or repair
- Lost income during your recovery
- Lost future income because you’re now unable to work
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced quality of life
- Wrongful death
