Although fun to ride, motorcycles offer little protection from the elements and absolutely no protection in the event of a collision with another vehicle. When a motorcyclist is struck by a car or a large commercial vehicle, the injuries a biker suffers are oftentimes catastrophic compared to those the other motorist may suffer. Collisions with motorcycles can lead to a variety of serious injuries, such as:
These types of injuries can require extensive medical treatments and they may even make it difficult or impossible for the rider to return to work. In some cases, injuries may be fatal.
For more than 20 years, Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, has made sure that injured bikers get the compensation they need and deserve after a serious accident. We handle all matters related to the crash, including securing benefits from the insurance company and filing a lawsuit if necessary. If litigation is needed, we will prepare all the required documents and will act as an advocate for you in all hearings and court proceedings.
When you retain us, you can rest assured that we will seek fair compensation that will cover your medical expenses, doctor’s appointments and lost wages. If your injuries leave you permanently disabled and unable to work, we can help you with the application process for Social Security Disability. If a loved one is killed in a motorcycle crash, we can help family members file a wrongful death claim.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle wreck and you have an insurance policy for your bike, you can seek benefits directly from the insurer. However, you may be entitled to accident insurance coverage under other vehicle policies you own.
