Few people are as vulnerable as motorcycle riders when hit by a car. Such accidents can result in head trauma, spinal injuries, paralysis, or even wrongful death. Insurance companies aggressively defend such claims as they often do not want to pay out large sums for medical expenses, lost income, or pain and suffering. Proving damages is a critical portion in any catastrophic loss case. Factors that will be typically looked into, in order to prove the value of your case, include:
Proving these types of facts will often require the use of medical and vocational experts. Hiring motorcycle accident attorneys who are familiar with this area of law, and who have the resources to see the case through to completion, is crucial. Such resources may include the ability to front up to $1,000,000 for expert fees and court costs.
The first step in a motorcycle accident case is to ascertain the extent to which a victim has been harmed. Once the amount of harm is known then the Plaintiff’s lawyer may send a settlement demand to the insurance company. If a settlement cannot be reached then the case will proceed to litigation. Under Texas’ comparative fault laws a victim may recover at trial as long as he or she was less than fifty one percent responsible for the accident. The trial is a complicated process and it is crucial that victims retain competent counsel.
