Las Vegas Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
otorcycle riding is fun, but it can also be dangerous. You may have an accident due to construction debris in the road, a car making a left in front of you, or defective equipment on the motorcycle. Unlike car drivers, motorcycle drivers rarely walk away from an accident without injuries. No matter what causes your accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries. You will need to find the most competent of all Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys to represent your case.
After your accident occurs, call the police. No matter how small the accident may appear, you need to call the police so they can take a full report of what happened. Some people feel like they are physically okay after an accident, only to find they have injuries several days later. If you think you are in any way injured, ask the police officer to call an ambulance or some type of medical assistance. If there is another driver or drivers involved in the accident, take down their names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information. Take the names and phone numbers of any bystanders that saw the accident occur. If you have time, write down their accounts of what they saw – the sooner you do this, the fresher their memory will be. Later, you will need to call the police department to receive a copy of your accident report to give to your attorney.
When injured in a motorcycle accident, you will need to find Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys to review your case to see if you are due compensation for your accident and injuries. Find an attorney that has experience with personal injury or motorcycle accidents. Most will not charge you for an initial consultation, and in some cases, you may not have to pay anything unless you receive compensation for the accident.
Once you have found the Las Vegas motorcycle accident lawyer whom you want to represent you, give him or her all your information. This includes the police report, eyewitness information, photos of your damaged motorcycle (if possible), photographs of your motorcycle before the accident, medical bills, your personal notes of your injuries and how they are affecting your daily routine, and any other information that seems pertinent to your case.
Good Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys will be concerned about three things when you make a motorcycle injury claim. First, he or she will need to help you determine the amount for which you will be asking. Second, you need to decide who is responsible for paying you compensation. Remember, this may include more than one person. Last, your attorney will begin to work with experts to see how accurate your claim is. For example, he might talk to a doctor to make sure that your doctor’s diagnosis is correct and that you will need to miss work due to your injury. He might talk to an economic expert to see exactly how valid your claim of lost wages is. If you receive a severe injury, you will be looking at compensation for many things – medical expenses, loss of employment, disability, the cost of your motorcycle, and pain and suffering you have experienced due to the accident.
