Being involved in a motorcycle accident can result in terrible injuries. In a head-on collision, they can be even worse. The problem is that it can be difficult to prove who was at fault for the motorcycle wreck. This is why you need a Spokane motorcycle head-on collision lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to represent you.


Who Was at Fault for Your Motorcycle Head-On?

This is the first question that must be asked. In order to file a personal injury lawsuit, someone else needs to be to blame. Typically, the other driver will be at fault. However, other parties could have contributed to the head-on as well.

For example, if the roads were dangerous and not properly maintained, the entity responsible for road maintenance could be to blame. If a part malfunctioned in the other driver’s car or your motorcycle, the manufacturer could be to blame.

It is important to name all negligent parties in your lawsuit to increase your chances for receiving compensation.


Proving Fault for Your Motorcycle Crash

An investigation will need to be conducted in order to determine what happened, why, and who is to blame. Presenting a strong case in court requires gathering and presenting evidence. This may include the following:

  • Reviewing accident reports
  • Looking at photographic evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Asking the other party questions under oath during a deposition

With evidence in hand, we can proceed to negotiations or to trial and make a strong case for why you deserve to be compensated.


You Should Prepare to Fight

After a head-on collision, you may feel like you have a strong case and that the other party will admit guilt. Don’t count on it. They are more likely to try and blame you (at least partially) for what happened. If they are successful, the insurance company pays less money, which means that their attorneys will be working to push blame in your direction, in any way possible. Be careful not to speak with them without your own attorney present.


Compensation for Your Injuries and Losses

Getting money for your injuries requires building a case for why you deserve compensation. It is also necessary to document what your expenses have been and are likely to be in the future. You could be eligible to recover compensation for any of the following damages that apply to your head-on:

  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Transportation costs
  • Emergency care
  • Caregiver expenses
  • Cost to retrofit your home or vehicle

You can also seek money for lost quality of life by requesting non-economic damages. This is money that compensates how your life has been impacted by the head-on collision and the trauma you have faced.
