What Should I Expect in a Motorcycle Personal Injury Lawsuit?
After the accident occurs, do your best to document the conditions of the scene of the accident (obviously not if you’re seriously injured). It will be critical to reconstruct the scene of the accidents and the conditions that contributed to it. Seek medical care with a trusted physician. Don’t post about your accident on social media, and try to be private about your condition, as anything you say or post online can be used against you in court.
Set up a free consultation with a personal injury attorney; our phone number is 845-600-0000. We’ll discuss:
- What are your medical costs
- What is the extent and severity of your damages
- Who was at fault for the accident
- What your legal options are going forward
If you choose to work with us, we’ll conduct an investigation. It may include things like:
- Obtaining police reports from the day of the accident
- Reconstruction the scene of the accident and the conditions leading up to it
- Gathering photos and testimony from eyewitnesses
- Obtaining video footage from any traffic or security cameras
- Reviewing medical records, employment history
- Determining lost wages and earning power
No two cases are the same. It’s important to retain a law firm who examines each case individually so to obtain the maximum possible compensation.
