Fulton County Motorcycle Accident
On a motorcycle, you have a much higher chance of being hit by another vehicle. This is due to the fact that motorcycles are simply smaller, and therefore, harder to be seen by other motor vehicles, especially trucks. When these accidents do happen, they are often not due to any mistake on the part of the motorcycle driver, but instead, a careless mistake on the part of another driver. One of the other consequences of a motorcycle being so much smaller is that motorcycle accident victims often experience the most severe types of injuries as compared to other motor vehicle accidents. Examples include, but are not limited to, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries, and quadriplegia and paraplegia.
When you hire an attorney they will work to recovery medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of wages that resulted from the accident. They will take a series of steps to ensure that they are fighting for maximum compensation. First they will contact the insurance companies of all the people involved in the accident and inquire about the coverage to determine the extent of recovery possible. Then they will interview witnesses, as witnesses are very important in motorcycle accident cases. They can attests to the speed and driving decisions of the motorcyclist as well as help fill in details of the event. Finally, an experienced motorcycle accident attorney will take photographs of the scene including injuries to people and property damage. If the situation is still unclear, the attorney may even hire an accident reconstructionist to clarify any details in question.
