The Potential Consequences of an Upper Darby Motorcycle Accident

When you’re on a motorcycle, you typically don’t have protection in the form of airbags or a vehicle’s metal frame surrounding you. This is why, statistically, when someone is involved in an accident on a motorcycle, their odds of dying are 29 times greater than they would be if they were in an enclosed vehicle.

If you’ve survived your motorcycle accident, you might nevertheless be left with serious injuries that can have long-term impacts on both your finances and quality of life. Depending on the severity of your injuries, they may permanently impact your mobility, employability, and more. You deserve to receive compensation accordingly if your accident resulted from someone else’s negligence.

Seeking Compensation After an Upper Darby Motorcycle Accident

If a negligent motorist or other such party caused your motorcycle accident, you can seek compensation for your losses by filing a claim with their insurance or filing a lawsuit to pursue damages in court. You can specifically seek compensation for such losses as:

  • Your medical bills (potentially including bills for future medical treatment if you need ongoing care)
  • Related expenses, such as the cost of at-home services if your mobility is impaired
  • Lost wages, if you can’t return to work until you recover from your injuries
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other such non-economic damages

How an Upper Darby Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help

It’s wise to enlist the help of a legal professional with experience handling cases like yours when seeking compensation after a motorcycle accident. An Upper Darby motorcycle accident lawyer can improve your chances of receiving the full amount of compensation you’re owed by:

  • Investigating your accident to identify the negligent party or parties who caused it
  • Gathering sufficient evidence to prove negligence
  • Reviewing your compensable losses to determine how much money you might deserve
  • Filing a claim and handling all correspondence with the insurance company
