According to the Insurance Information Institute, there were 5,290 motorcycle fatalities in 2008 alone. Most of the time, these fatalities, and motorcycle accidents in general, do not result from the motorcycle driver’s recklessness, but negligence from the drivers of cars and trucks around them. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident for which they were not at fault, you are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, damages to your motorcycle, wage losses and the emotional trauma you have experienced as a result of the accident.

You may be entitled to additional compensation if your spouse has experienced severe emotional distress as a result of your accident. We’ll make sure you receive whatever you need and won’t charge you unless you do!

In order to receive the compensation you’re entitled to, it is important that you remain calm and take
plenty of precautionary measures when you are involved in an accident. Even if you don’t believe you’ve suffered any damages, it’s still necessary to call the police and file an accident report. Be sure to swap insurance information with whoever is involved in the accident, and get their addresses and phone numbers as well. It would be extremely helpful if you had contact information for anyone who witnessed the accident. If possible, it is also a good idea to take pictures of your injuries as well as the damages to your motorcycle.

More than likely, your insurance company will try to falsify your claims and shift blame to you for the accident. Insurance companies want to avoid their obligation to pay for your expenses as often as possible, but when you utilize the representation and legal advice of Van Sant Law, LLC they will not be able to get away with it. Call us right away if you feel like your insurance company is trying to take advantage of you.
