McDonough Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles and cars on roadEven on Henry County’s congested roads, motorcycles are a constant presence. Bikers are 35 times more likely than drivers to be killed in an accident and 8 times more likely to be injured, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. The rate of fatal accidents has increased in recent years. Research shows that in a majority of two-vehicle motorcycle accidents, the cause of the accident is the driver of the other vehicle.

When bikers are involved in a collision, they have a much higher risk of suffering catastrophic injuries. Motorcyclists have very little protection when they are struck by another vehicle. While a car driver’s seat belt, airbags, and even the vehicle’s frame protect them in a crash, bikers’ bodies are often struck by other vehicles directly, which can send them flying onto the road.

If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a motorbike accident caused by someone else, you have the right to seek compensation. Charles Scholle and the team at Scholle Law have successfully represented injury victims for over 25 years, recovering millions on our clients’ behalf.

Why Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer if I Have Insurance?

Hiring a skilled personal injury attorney is highly recommended for any injury accident, especially one involving a motorcycle. Because motorcyclists are not surrounded by automotive glass, bumpers, fenders, airbags, and sidewalls, they’re more susceptible to injury and death. When a larger vehicle collides with a motorcycle, the impact can throw the rider off their bike and result in very serious injuries. These injuries can involve a lengthy recovery timeline, mind-boggling medical expenses, and result in time away from work. 

Unfortunately, even in cases of severe injury, insurance companies will try to pay as little as possible to settle the claim. They are businesses looking out for their profits first and foremost, after all. Trying to negotiate with the insurance company on your own will almost always result in a settlement that is grossly insufficient. 

An experienced motorcycle accident attorney knows how to deal with insurance companies, when to settle, and when to litigate, all to make sure you receive every dollar you deserve. Your compensation will typically be exponentially higher by hiring an attorney than if you try to settle on your own.

When should I hire a McDonough motorcycle accident attorney?

The time to hire a motorcycle accident attorney is as soon after the accident as possible. After the accident occurs, every minute counts. Forensic evidence must be gathered and documented before it is compromised by time, weather, and more. 

Witnesses need to be interviewed while the memory of what happened is still fresh. And your unpaid medical bills will start piling up faster than you think. The sooner you get an experienced attorney involved, the sooner they can begin developing the case. That improves your chances of getting the full compensation your injury accident warrants.
