Most motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle are the fault of the vehicle’s driver. Riders are often seriously injured or killed. Often the primary wage earners in their families, far too many are left disabled or facing lengthy recovery with an uncertain outcome.

There is no such thing as a minor motorcycle accident. Even low-speed collisions frequently result in serious or fatal injuries.

Common motorcycle injuries include:

  • Road rash
  • Broken or crushed limbs
  • Burns
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries

Our Wichita motorcycle accident attorneys know a rider is blamed for causing or contributing to an accident in far too many cases. In other cases, an at-fault driver does not stop at the scene, leaving victims at a significant disadvantage when it comes to recovering all of the compensation to which they are entitled.

Motorcycle Injury Lawsuits

Early consultation with an experienced motorcycle injury law firm in Wichita is vital in these cases. A thorough investigation of the accident scene, and a comprehensive determination of all of the factors of causation, are the first steps toward justice.

Additionally, your chosen motorcycle accident lawyer in Wichita must have the knowledge and experience to build a comprehensive case for damages, including economic damages like medical bills and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and compensation for disfigurement or other losses that can be more difficult to value. Because these cases often result in disability or long-term medical complications, your law firm must also understand the economic value of these claims well into the future.

Insurance companies understand the liability in these cases and typically assign your claim to a senior team of adjusters, investigators, and legal and medical experts, whose sole job is to reduce the cost of your claim. Only with an experienced Wichita motorcycle injury lawyer on your side can you expect to win all of the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

In cases where a driver flees the scene, does not have insurance, or lacks enough insurance to adequately compensate you for all losses, your motorcycle injury law firm may also pursue a claim against your own insurance company via an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim. In such cases, your insurance company will treat you as any other claimant, not as a valued customer. So it’s important to understand from the outset that any statements you make, even to your own insurance carrier, will likely be used in an attempt to lower the value of your claim.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Failure to yield: The leading cause of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle are drivers who turn left in front of an oncoming rider.
  • Rear-end collisions: A surprising number of collisions occur when a vehicle rear ends a rider stopped in traffic or at an intersection.
  • Roadway departure: In too many cases, a motorist may force a rider off the road. Frequently, the motorist does not stop or remain at the scene. Even when an at-fault driver stops, his or her own insurance company is likely to argue the rider’s own contributor negligence caused the accident or contributed to injury, thereby reducing or even eliminating a victim’s ability to collect damages.
  • Parking lot accidents: Accidents in parking lots or while existing private driveways are a common cause.
  • Intersection accidents: A large proportion of accidents occur at intersections. These can be complicated cases, because determining fault and causation can be more challenging.
