Motorcycle accidents in which the motorcyclist was at fault are far less likely to find legal grounds for their personal injury claim.
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) May 19, 2015
Motorcycle accidents can leave victims in very serious and painful conditions. While it is wise to seek compensation for personal injuries, The Jones Firm recommends in their recent article that motorcycle accident victims review their answers to six critical questions before filing a personal injury claim.
The first question clarifies who was at fault in the accident. Motorcycle accidents in which the motorcyclist was at fault are far less likely to find legal grounds for their personal injury claim. The article goes on to state that, “If you were not at-fault in the motorcycle accident, this drastically increases your chances of receiving compensation. Your personal injury lawyer will most likely be able to file a personal injury claim that will compensate you for medical expenses incurred during your recovery, as well as other personal losses.”
The fourth question in the article considers whether the victim saw a doctor shortly after the accident. Personal injury claims with a large time-gap between the time of the accident and their next doctor’s appointment are weakened by the time lapse.
The article clarifies that, “The reason for this is because, if the time span between your accident and initial treatment is large, it will be difficult to prove that your injuries were actually sustained during the the accident.”
The final question asks if either party involved in the accident has insurance. The article explains that, “In order to successfully file a claim, at least one party involved in the accident must have insurance.”
If motorcycle accident victims can appropriately answer each question in the article, then the only thing remaining is for victims to locate a recognized and experienced personal injury lawyer who can help to make sure their needs are met.
