The injuries caused by a motorcycle crash can require substantial amounts of money to afford the necessary medical care. Get the compensation you need by working with a Richland motorcycle accident lawyer.

The Tri-Cities is a great place for motorcycle riding. Unfortunately, motorcyclists sometimes get into accidents due to negligent drivers, leaving them seriously injured and in need of compensation.

If this is your situation, you don’t want to risk dealing with the other driver’s attorney or insurance company on your own. They’ll do everything they can to avoid financial liability—possibly even blaming you for the crash. To ensure that your rights are protected, work with a Richland motorcycle accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates.


Can I Handle My Motorcycle Crash Claim on My Own?

We hear this question frequently. Technically, the answer is “yes.” Unfortunately, there are pervasive stereotypes about bikers that cause most people to assume that they are reckless and dangerous. This will work against you when trying to negotiate a settlement or achieve a successful verdict in court.

You need a Richland motorcycle accident lawyer on your side to advocate for your rights and your need for compensation. We will gather evidence to prove that someone else was responsible for what happened and that you were not negligent. Our firm can expose the other side’s baseless arguments for what they truly are.


Valuing Your Motorcycle Crash Claim

How much your personal injury claim is worth depends on how badly you were injured. You can recover money to pay for your injuries and how your life has been impacted financially, emotionally, and mentally. The greater your injuries, the larger the impact and the more money you could be eligible for.

There are several types of compensation you may qualify for. The most common are economic damages, which may include money for any financial losses caused by the motorcycle crash:

  • Lost wages due to being injured
  • Medical bills (current and future)
  • Transportation expenses
  • Cost of hiring a caregiver
  • Money to retrofit your home to accommodate an injury
  • Motorcycle repair or replacement

You can also recover compensation for non-economic damages, such as disfigurement and pain and suffering. Your Richland motorcycle accident lawyer will seek compensation for all of the ways that your quality of life has suffered. If your injuries have strained your marriage or left you unable to participate in activities you once enjoyed, you deserve compensation.


What Caused Your Accident?

The first step in any case is to determine what caused your motorcycle accident, who was involved, and who was responsible. As a biker, you could even have a case if you were the only one involved. Sometimes the manufacturer is negligent because they sold a bike with a bad part. At other times, the roads could have been dangerous due to a lack of maintenance. We can evaluate your case and determine if someone else was responsible, even if there were no other vehicles involved.
