Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
It is a sad truth that many insurance companies, claims adjusters, and even judges and juries have unfair biases against motorcyclists. Since riding a motorcycle assumes more of a personal injury risk than driving a standard passenger vehicle, many believe this equates to greater liability for accidents – even those the motorcyclist didn’t cause. You need an attorney to help you protect your rights and fight back against prejudices that could interfere with your ability to recover damages. A lawyer can demonstrate your injuries and help prove the other party’s fault in front of a judge and jury.
Motorcycle Accidents Overview
Colorado motorcyclists face many dangers on the road – but none as grave as human error. Distracted, drunk, drowsy, and reckless drivers are the greatest dangers motorcyclists encounter. Common causes of accidents, like speeding, can increase the severity of the injuries to a motorcyclist. Other potential causes include defective motorcycle parts, unsafe roads, and bad weather. The most common injuries motorcyclists suffer in accidents include:
- Bone fractures, particularly to the lower extremities, arms, wrists, and skull
- Lacerations, road rash, and traumatic tattooing
- Head and traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding or organ damage
- Wrongful death
These are all serious injuries that deserve legal attention. Victims with these injuries could be eligible for pain and suffering, psychological trauma, lost wages, property damage, and medical bill damages through the Colorado civil courts. Filing a claim with help from an attorney can maximize your odds of full, fair recovery after a collision.
Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim
Generally, you have three years from the date of your motorcycle accident to file a personal injury claim. At Varner Faddis Elite Legal, LLC, however, we recommend you don’t wait to contact an attorney. Missing your deadline can mean forfeiting a potential compensation award. You may have the right to file a lawsuit if you suffered serious injuries, an insurance company is improperly denying your claim, or if you can’t reach a satisfactory settlement.
You will need to file with the correct county court by the deadline for the state to hear your claim. A lawyer can help you file your claim according to the rules and expectations. Instead of dealing with serious personal injuries and a lawsuit, hand your legal battle over to a lawyer who has the skill, knowledge, and experience to secure top results. Trusting the right attorney can enable you to focus on yourself, not the law.
