As discussed last week, a motorcycle accident can leave you with significant injuries that cause severe pain. Many of these injuries have long-term effects, including disfigurement and disability. Broken bones may make it difficult for you to get to work or school, and a brain injury may leave you or a loved one reliant upon constant medical care. While recovering from these injuries, you have a lot to think about. How are you going to pay your medical expenses? If you are unable to work, how are you going to pay your other bills? How can you send the message that the negligent individual who hurt you will be held accountable?
A lawsuit very well may be the answer to those questions, depending on the facts surrounding your accident. By taking legal action, you not only put yourself in a position where you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, but you might also be able to raise awareness of motorcycle awareness. A successful claim will also send the message that those who fail to drive safely around motorcyclists will be punished.
Though the legal process may seem daunting, an experienced attorney may be able to help guide you through the process. A lawyer can help you analyze the circumstances surrounding your wreck and advise you as to whether filing a claim is in your best interest. If you do decide to take legal action, then an attorney will represent your best interests in settlement negotiations and/or before a judge and jury.
