Advocating for You: Personal Injury & Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

You get an unmatched sense of freedom when you take your motorcycle out for a ride. The fresh air, the adrenaline rush of riding down an open highway, and the like-minded people who you encounter during rides is unlike any other experience. Getting on your motorcycle isn’t just a mundane form of transportation—it’s a way of life. You get a chance to live in the moment as you connect with your surroundings in a way that you can never quite achieve from driving in a car.

But, a single motorcycle ride can also alter the course of your life. Motorcycle accidents can lead to devastating injuries. After all, you aren’t protected by the same safety equipment as you would be in a car or truck. Even if you are using a helmet or other protective gear, the chances of sustaining a major injury during a motorcycle accident are high.

Motorcycle accidents can create major headaches—even with just minor injuries. The accident may damage your motorcycle to the point that you do not have reliable transportation. And then there are the insurance companies. Anyone filing a claim after a motorcycle accident knows just how time-consuming receiving your compensation can be. The long hours on the phone (especially on hold), adjusters working hard to give you as little compensation as possible, and a sense that insurance companies are working against you? Just leads to even more frustration. Luckily, you don’t have to fight these gigantic corporations on your own.

Why You Need A Lawyer After a Motorcycle Accident

If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, then you need a trusted personal injury lawyer who understands all of the insurance company’s “tricks.” A lawyer who is ready to fight hard to make sure that these companies aren’t just taking advantage of your vulnerable position. After all, you just want to receive fair compensation for any pain and suffering, lost work time, or damage to your bike.

The Ward Law Group has helped countless victims of motorcycle collisions to obtain their fair share of compensation. With over 20 years of legal experience, we prevent insurance companies from taking advantage of you. You’ve been through enough already; so let us take care of the litigation and negotiation!

Unfortunately, those who don’t seek legal advice often end up making critical errors that cost them precious settlement money. For Spanish-speaking individuals involved in a motorcycle accident, filing a claim can be even more difficult. After all, even those who are fluent in English have a very difficult time understanding all of the insurance company lingo. Don’t let language barriers keep you from achieving the settlement you deserve! At the Ward Law Group, we empower both English and Spanish-speaking victims of personal injury to receive full compensation for their claims!

Common Types of Motorcycle Accident Claims That We Settle

The Ward Law Group believes that anyone who sustains a personal injury because of another individual needs to receive appropriate compensation for their pain. This includes money to support a family, pay the mounting bills, and get back on your feet. Seeking help from the Ward Law Group ensures that you have a trusted partner who examines every aspect of your accident to craft a rock-solid case.

According to a 2016 report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 80% of reported motorcycle accidents resulted in injury or death. In fact, about 1/3 of all multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes occurred because another driver failed to check for a motorcyclist at an intersection or while turning. The negligence of other drivers could be putting your life at risk!

Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Drunk Driving Accidents: Alcohol and other drugs impair a driver’s ability to drive safely. When a drunk driver causes your motorcycle accident, we are ready to help.
  • Distracted Driving Collisions: Even with laws in place that prohibit drivers from using cell phones and other mobile devices, people still find the need to check their phones. Texting while driving distracts a person from safely sharing the road with other drivers, including motorcyclists.
  • Rear-End Collisions: While distracted or under unsafe road conditions, a driver can fail to react safely, thus causing a rear-end collision. While this may only result in a minor fender-bender for most cars, most rear-end collisions with motorcyclists result in devastating injuries.
  • Parking Lot Accidents: Driving hazards aren’t limited to the street. Parking lots can be dangerous terrain for motorcyclists. Since motorcycles aren’t as visible as cars, careless drivers backing out of parking spaces can cause major injuries for motorcyclists who were simply looking for a parking space.
  • Reckless Driving Accidents: Excessive speed, tailgating, or lane-switching puts nearby motorcyclists at risk. In fact, those who don’t follow the simple rules of the road can put a motorcyclist’s life in danger.
  • Hit-and-run Accidents: Either through fear of getting caught or from simple unawareness, some vehicles flee the scene of an accident. This illegal act can make your insurance claim even more difficult to process.

Even if you do your best to remain safe on your motorcycle, these types of accidents may put your life and livelihood in danger. Don’t let the negligence of other drivers destroy your family’s financial future. The Ward Law Group is ready to help you no matter what type of motorcycle accident caused your injury.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries & Compensation

Riding a motorcycle has inherent dangers that are unlike any other type of motor vehicle. During an accident, the potential for being ejected from your motorcycle is incredibly high. Unfortunately, this puts you at risk for many different types of injuries.

For example, being ejected from your motorcycle can cause road rash. This injury occurs when a motorcyclist falls off his or her vehicle and slides across the rough pavement. Road rash often results in scrapes, bruises, cuts, and sometimes, even nerve damage.

In addition, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and concussions are also common motorcycle accident injuries. In some cases, these injuries can lead to painful, debilitating symptoms that can keep you from working, engaging in everyday activities, and enjoying time with your family.

If a negligent driver caused your motorcycle accident, the Ward Law Group wants to make sure you have the resources you need to support your family. We work hard to make sure you are compensated for pain and suffering, time away from work, and chronic medical conditions that result from your accident. In addition, we make sure that any property damage, medical bills, or hidden expenses are taken care of while you recover.

For example, our legal team processed a lawsuit involving a loving father, who was ejected from his scooter when he was rear-ended by a reckless driver. Unfortunately, this man sustained severe and permanent injuries from his accident. However, our team of legal experts worked around the clock to make sure that this man was fairly compensated for his injuries and the major impact that this accident would have on the rest of his life. The verdict: a $2,500,000 settlement, securing the financial livelihood of this man and his family!

Get the Compensation That You Deserve for Your Motorcycle Accident

Are you ready for the Ward Law Group to go to work for you? No matter what injuries you sustained, we will fight the insurance companies and even take a case to trial if necessary. Call us at 855-DOLOR-55 (855-365-6755) today and take the first steps toward getting your life back!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After a Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, then the first thing you want to do is make sure that you are safe. If possible, go to a safe part of the roadway and call the local police. Take pictures of the scene and any damage or ask the assistance of someone nearby to do it. When the police arrive on the scene, they will draft an accident report which will subsequently go to the appropriate insurance companies.

If you sustained any medical injuries, then get the medical help you need immediately. Your health and well-being should be your first concern. Being in an accident can be a traumatic experience, but emergency responders can help during this difficult time.

Contact your insurance company as soon as possible. They will open up a claim based on the information you provided and the accident report filed by the police.

If the accident wasn’t your fault, then seek the help of a personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies tend to underestimate your injuries and damages in order to save themselves money. Don’t settle on any of their offers until you have spoken with an attorney.

If you choose to enlist the help of the Ward Law Group, we communicate with the insurance companies for you. This includes drawing up legal documentation of your injuries as well as any damages to your motorcycle. We also make certain that insurance companies don’t deny your claim or attempt to offer you less money than you deserve. (In legal terms, the law refers to this as a gesture of bad faith on the part of the insurance company.)

How the Ward Law Group Can Help

If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, then you realize how the big insurance companies have no problem sending you a monthly bill… but, they drag their feet when it comes to paying out your claim. There’s a reason for this: insurance companies want to make a profit. They seek to spend the least money possible to handle your claim.

It just isn’t right.

This is why the Ward Law Group fights passionately to get you the compensation that you deserve. We understand the struggles of sustaining an injury in a motorcycle accident. Lost wages, medical bills, and physical and emotional suffering can all put major stress on your work and family life. Don’t settle for less before talking to us!

In addition, our team of legal experts is dedicated to helping Spanish-speaking individuals who were involved in motorcycle accidents. We know that insurance companies can sometimes use language barriers as leverage against you. We will make sure that this doesn’t happen to you.

State laws often limit the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. So, don’t hesitate to call the Ward Law Group today!
