An Uphill Climb
If you ride a motorcycle and are involved in an accident and not liable, you might be able to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident. Under the law you will be entitled to claim compensation for all expenses related with the accident. These would include medical bills, loss of income, compensation for pain and suffering, and even emotional distress. The list is by no means exhaustive. But while you are entitled to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit under personal injury law, winning the suit and being awarded the compensation you deserve will be far from easy.
Proving Your Side
As the plaintiff, you will have to prove that the other driver was negligent, and that this negligence was the cause of the accident. You will be required to demonstrate that he/she did not exercise reasonable care owing to other drivers on the road. In addition, you will have to show that harm was caused, and the extent of the harm.
Given the complexity of the case, your chances of winning will be better if you have a motorcycle accident attorney representing you. Your attorney will use witness testimony, accident photos, medical bills, and all other available evidence to prove your case.
With special expertise in motorcycle accident cases, an accomplished personal injury attorney will be able to maximize your claim and negotiate a settlement that compensates you justly.
