If you suffered a fractured or broken bone in a motorcycle accident, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation against the party responsible for your crash.

A Spokane motorcycle accident broken bone lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can represent you, answer your questions, protect your rights, and help you to get as much financial compensation as possible for your broken bone.


Proving Fault for a Motorcycle Crash

We will need to conduct an investigation to determine what caused your accident and who is to blame. This is necessary for establishing negligence and identifying who to file a lawsuit against.

You do not have to be 100 percent blameless for the motorcycle crash in order to receive financial compensation, but someone else does need to be mostly at fault for your accident—which is what we will need to prove.


Protecting Your Reputation

Motorcycle riders have an unfair reputation for driving recklessly and disobeying traffic laws. This is simply not the truth, and we will do our best to fight for your legal rights while also protecting your reputation as a rider.

Opposing attorneys often try to use these stereotypes against motorcyclists in court, but we will make certain that this tactic fails and that you are treated fairly.


Understanding the Recovery Process for a Broken Bone

The severity of your broken or fractured bone will directly impact how long it takes for you to recover. It will also determine whether you are going to have permanent damage.

If your break is clean and the bones do not move out of alignment, it will be far easier to recover within a reasonable time frame. However, if your broken bone is particularly bad, you could require surgery to complete the healing process.

Regardless, the recovery process will demand time, missed days from work, and potentially other unforeseen expenses.


Don’t Settle Too Quickly

You need to make certain that you receive enough compensation to pay for all of the ways that your fractured or broken bone is going to impact your life. This includes the cost of medical care, but also expenses related to any of the following items:

  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Travel expenses for medical care
  • Wage loss due to time off from work
  • Hiring caregivers
  • Medical equipment
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
  • And more

Additionally, we will work with your doctor to determine whether you are going to need ongoing medical care. If your healthcare providers see a need for physical therapy or other treatment on an ongoing basis, we will include these in our request for compensation.


Issuing a Demand Letter

After placing an initial value on your injury claim, we will draft a demand letter to be sent to the other party’s insurance company. They will then have the opportunity to review and either accept, counteroffer, or deny the request.

This often starts a negotiation process which can lead to a settlement outside of court. However, if they are unwilling to negotiate fairly, we will be prepared to represent you during trial.
