The Process for Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim
Filing a claim for a motorcycle injury can be a daunting task, especially if it’s your first time claiming any sort. However, you don’t have to worry — our attorneys will be with you every step of the way.
Investigating Your Accident
The first part of the process is always finding out exactly what happened. Our attorneys will typically accomplish this by acquiring the police report about the accident, reviewing any photos or videos from the accident, and speaking to witnesses.
Building the Case
This step often takes a significant amount of time as our team has to gather evidence for your claim — including a comprehensive medical record of your injuries, which can only be compiled after you have finished treatment.
Negotiating a Settlement
Once all the evidence has been gathered, your attorney will deliver a demand package, containing the relevant documents (e.g. medical bills) that describe your injuries and possible income loss as a result of the accident, to the at-fault party. Your attorney will then negotiate with the at-fault party and their insurance provider for a fair settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, you can then file a lawsuit.
Taking the Case to Court
Out of all the steps in the process, litigation takes the longest — taking your dispute to a court of law will likely require you and the at-fault party, plus your respective attorneys to appear before a judge and jury.
