Treasure Island Motorcycle Accident Attorney
As a motorcyclist, being hit by a car or truck is terrifying, infuriating, and causes tremendous emotional distress on the victim and their loved ones, straining relationships, careers, and finances all at the same time. Sadly, negligent drivers rarely take responsibility and admit what really happened, further exacerbating the damage they caused. On top of it all is the fact that in a personal injury claim, the motorcycle crash victim pursues damages from the negligent driver’s auto insurance company. Insurance companies do not care about people. They care about making as much money as possible, often at victims’ expenses. Here at Reep Coleman & Stubbendorff, our Treasure Island motorcycle accident attorney provides the support that injured victims need during this time. We are here to answer any questions you may have, and will do everything in our power to win your case when the time comes.
Motorcycle Injury Claims Present an Additional Challenge
Drivers and other eyewitnesses at the scene, responding police and crash scene investigators, the media that reported on the crash, insurance companies, and society at large are all too eager to point a finger at an injured motorcyclist when it comes to placing fault. We understand the challenges that injured motorcyclists face in personal injury claim disputes. As such, we often employ our own investigators to get to the truth of what really happened if the other party denies responsibility. Crash scene forensic experts can reconstruct the collision using skid marks, damage to your motorcycle and other vehicles involved, the location of vehicle and bike debris on the road, and witness testimony to get an accurate picture of what happened, and who was at fault. It is important that we do everything possible to prove that the other party was solely at fault, because anything less than 100 percent liability reduces your damages.
Damages in a Treasure Island Motorcycle Claim
Damages in a motorcycle claim are often extreme, due to the serious injuries victims often face. Multiple fractures, concussion or traumatic brain injury, deep lacerations that leave permanent scarring, internal bleeding, and fractured vertebrae are all too common. The more severe the plaintiff’s injuries, the greater their damages:
- Medical expenses and cost of ongoing and future medical care and treatment
- Lost wages during time in the hospital or recovery, as well as lost future earnings due to reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering, emotional distress/mental anguish, and loss of joy of life
- Property damage
