Determining whether you have a personal injury case is greatly dependent on whether negligence was involved. Because every motorcycle accident is different, consulting with a skilled lawyer may help you in your decision of whether pursuing legal action is the best decision for your particular situation.
Intersection collisions are often the fault of a negligent driver; however, it’s possible that a dangerous or faulty roadway or street light, or even a defective auto part, may have contributed to the crash.
Motorcycle crashes at intersections that are the result of a motorist running a red light can cause a biker to suffer serious injuries. A traumatic brain injury (TBI), burn injury, spinal cord injury, and other catastrophic injuries may all result in long-term hospitalization, rehabilitation, and time away from work. The financial losses caused by a motorcycle accident may be reimbursed through economic damages won in a claim or lawsuit. These damages may also include past and future earnings and benefits lost as well as the cost of surgery, medication, occupational therapy, physical therapy, home-care, and more.
How a motorcycle accident survivor is affected emotionally varies according to the circumstances of the injuries sustained and the accident itself. Most commonly, bikers cope with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief, and other forms of mental anguish. Psychotherapy or psychiatric help may be recommended as ways to overcome such challenges. Compensation for these non-economic damages can’t undo the harm, but they may help a biker find closure and peace of mind.
For a motorcycle accident involving a red light run, testimony from witnesses at the scene can help prove legal responsibility. Accident reconstruction also lays out the details and physics of a crash to demonstrate the events leading up to and during the collision. Running a red light may be connected with distracted driving, such as texting while driving, or a deliberate violation of the law. By gathering this data as well as medical evidence, your attorney can help you prepare for dealing with insurance companies and the legal proceedings of your case.
Having a lawyer who also rides on your side can help a biker feel understood and protected.
