Understandably, most people only wish to recover quickly and quietly following a motorcycle accident. The idea of retaining a lawyer in the aftermath can potentially seem overwhelming. The Law Office of WT Johnson understand this and appreciate the difficulties associated with such incidents. We are firmly committed to providing superior council to the victims of motorcycle collisions in the most efficient and effective way possible. Here are just a few examples of how we can work for you:
Representation: Motorcycle accidents tend to end with significantly more damage done to the bike rider and passengers than anyone, or anything, else. As a result, insurance agents on both sides of the wreck are prone to low-balling settlements to avoid extensive and lengthy payment schedules. This dubious behavior and other confusing techniques exist to serve the interests of the insurance companies – not the victim(s).
Before speaking to any insurance adjustor, even one representing your own policy, we encourage you to meet with one of the knowledgeable motorcycle attorneys at The Law Office of WT Johnson. We can help determine the best course of action with your claim and act as a direct line to the insurance agencies in question.
Litigation: More often than not, the aforementioned insurance settlements simply cannot cover the medical costs or suffering of those who have survived a motorcycle crash. Additional financial compensation can be sought by bringing a lawsuit against the at-fault party. While filing a claim can never undo the damage done or the lives lost, it can provide much needed support during a victim's time of need.
Having a qualified Dallas vehicle accident lawyer in your corner to fully investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash, track down evidence, and interview witnesses, can go a long way in establishing your case. To that end, The Law Office of WT Johnson can help you pursue every avenue of litigation available and secure the benefits that your family deserves.
Motorcyclists love the feel of the wind in their face as they travel the open road. But the fact is that on their journey they are uniquely exposed to dangers because of their vulnerability against other vehicles. It is sadly almost a certainty that a motorcycle rider will be involved in at least one accident in their lifetime. And in that accident, he or she is likely to suffer serious and sometimes even devastating injuries.
Obviously the severity of the injuries suffered will vary based on factors such as speed, angle of impact, where the accident occurs, the type of terrain, and what kind of protective gear the rider is wearing. But there are some commonalities in terms of injuries:
- Road Rash. This is a usually somewhat superficial but extremely painful condition where the skin is literally rubbed off on contact with the ground. Gravel and other debris may be embedded in the skin and extensive areas of the body can be affected.
- Degloving. This is a far more serious injury where a person’s skin is literally ripped off of their body and requires multiple surgeries. It is an intensely painful condition.
- Broken bones. In a forceful impact with the ground, the human body can only absorb so much energy before breaking.
- Whiplash. While usually thought of in terms of automobile accidents, this neck injury is caused by the rapid back and forth movement of the head on impact. It can cause neck pain, headaches, and stiffness.
- Spinal injuries. Motorcycle accidents can cause damage to the spine which can lead to partial or in some cases, total, paralysis.
While any victim’s primary goal should be to try to recover from their injuries, the fact is that the cost of medical treatment and rehabilitative therapies can be overwhelming. The reality is that in a car versus motorcycle accident, the motorcyle and motorcyclist is likely to suffer far more significant damage than the occupants of the car or the car itself. Insurance companies know this as well.
