Wenatchee Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle crash, you don’t have to let an insurer tell you what your claim is worth. Get full compensation by working with a Wenatchee motorcycle crash attorney.
A motorcycle crash can leave you severely injured and uncertain about how to recover your numerous losses.
As a motorcyclist, you are in a unique position on the road. You are exposed to dangers and risks that those driving cars do not have to deal with. For example, you have less protection between you and the highway, and other drivers don’t always appreciate sharing the road with you.
This all means that you are the most vulnerable in the event of a collision.
If you have been hurt in a wreck and suspect that someone else was at fault, the first step is to contact a Wenatchee motorcycle accident lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates. State laws for motorcycles differ from those that govern cars. Our firm will help you determine if you have a case and how much you may be able to recover in compensation.
Determining Negligence in Motorcycle Wrecks
In Washington State, comparative negligence laws determine fault. This means that if you are found to be in violation of laws that apply to motorcyclists, your settlement could be reduced accordingly.
For example, if you do not wear a helmet and experience a head injury in the accident, you can be found partially responsible, which would reduce the amount of compensation you receive.
At our law firm, we know how insurance companies work to protect their bottom line. We also understand the intricacies of personal injury law and will fight to help you recover your losses.
Monetary Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident
After your accident, you may be wondering what kind of compensation you are entitled to seek. Our firm will work on your behalf to recover compensation for all of the damages and losses you’ve experienced, whether they’re financial or otherwise.
The following list contains just a few of the losses that you might be able to seek compensation for:
- Current and future medical bills resulting from your injuries
- Physical or emotional therapy
- Lost income or diminished future earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Motorcycle repairs, rental car expenses, or transportation fees
The insurance isn’t likely to help you identify all of your losses, as the settlement they offer will likely only cover what’s obvious. An insurance company never has your best interests in mind when they offer a dollar figure. That’s just a simple—if unfortunate—truth.
Your lawyer will understand the particular circumstances of your case and will see you as more than just a claim to be settled. You and your pain matter.
During the stressful time that follows a motorcycle crash, the last thing you need to worry about is proving your diminished enjoyment of life to an insurance company. Your lawyer will stand in your place and make a convincing argument to win you every penny in compensation you’re owed.
