Have you or a loved one been involved in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else? Except for pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents tend to be the most catastrophic of traffic accidents as a whole. These accidents often cause severe burns, broken and dislocated bones, and even death. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, a motorcycle accident attorney can help you fight the insurance companies and adjusters to get you the compensation you deserve. We work quickly to evaluate your claim, investigate your accident, fight the insurance companies, and navigate the legal process and court system.
Pursuing a motorcycle accident claim can be tricky and overwhelming, especially while you or a loved one is trying to recover, heal, pay medical bills, and go back to your normal life and job. You need time to focus on yourself and your recovery, and our team at Tehrani Law, LLC, can help you do that. We can take over your insurance claim, meet all deadlines on your behalf, preserve your rights, and fight the companies that are trying to reduce or deny your claim. We can help hold the people who caused your injuries responsible.
We have experience investigating motorcycle accidents and determining all the various people and companies who can give you money to pay your bills and expenses. Determining liability for your motorcycle accident is critical. A police report can often help in clearing this issue up early on, as most reports list an “at-fault” party. This means that it was someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness that caused your car accident and the injuries you have. However, with motorcycle accidents, proving liability can be a trickier process than with other traffic accidents.
We are here to help you with your legal questions
Why Are Motorcycle Accidents More Difficult to Prove?
Because motorcycles are smaller than most vehicles, and because motorcycle drivers can more easily and quickly navigate the roads and lane changes, they are often blamed for traffic accidents. Although it is true that some motorcycle drivers weave in and out of traffic in a negligent and reckless manner, that is generally not true for most motorcycle drivers who actually try to drive carefully and obey the rules of the road.
However, the quick and seamless movements of motorcycles do often contribute to other drivers’ startled reactions and improper swerves and lane changes while they attempt to avoid a collision with a motorcycle driver. If the driver who caused your motorcycle accident claims that you or your loved ones changed lanes in front of them quickly, merged into their lane improperly, were racing other motorcycle riders, or otherwise driving too fast or recklessly, the insurance company will claim that you are at least partially at fault in the accident.
In Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., this claim of contributory negligence – that you at least partially contributed to your own accident – is a complete bar to your motorcycle accident claim. Therefore, it is very important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible so that you can fight against these claims and prove that you were not at fault in your own motorcycle accident.
