Investigating a motorcycle accident case involves evidence. Our legal team will obtain these key elements to prove a legal motorcycle accident injury case. An investigation is necessary in order to obtain the evidence to prove that another party is responsible, or negligent for the accident. Proving another party’s liability requires evidence that our legal team acquires through investigation.
The investigation is complex. Often times, the cause of the collision is not obvious. The factors that caused the crash and who is liable for causing injury are determined through investigation. What factors contributed to the accident? Who is to be held responsible?
After thoroughly examining evidence and investigating the scene, an attorney at Injury Lawyers Tucson will gather evidence in order to prove a case. An investigation includes:
A visit to the accident scene
An analysis of the crash site
Obtaining all evidence of the accident (photos, videos)
Obtaining pictures from the accident scene (road signs, road conditions….)
Acquiring any evidence pertaining to the specific case
Record keeping of all damages
Gathering medical evidence of any injury
Consulting expert witnesses and crash scene investigators
How to determine negligence in a Motorcycle Accident
It is crucial to build a strong personal injury claim. To develop a solid case, all available evidence must be uncovered and examined by our attorney. Of course each case has its specific circumstances, and may take different forms.
There are many potential causes and different factors that could have caused the motorcycle accident:
Distracted driving is becoming a very common cause of accidents. Distracted drivers who are negligent for an accident must be held responsible and accident victims deserve compensation.
Driving while intoxicated
Intoxicated drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol cause severe accidents and serious injury.
Dangerous driving behaviors like speeding, fast lane changes, or tailgating can end in a collision.
Poorly maintained roads, potholes, shoulder drop-offs, or other dangerous road conditions may contribute to a motorcycle accident. Because of the instability of a motorbike with 2 wheels, hazardous roads are dangerous.
Defective Motorcycle Parts
If any part of a motorcycle malfunctions or proves to be defective, this involves the manufacturer as a liable party to an accident.
Again, many factors may have played a role in causing a motorcycle accident. In order to maximize compensation, an attorney will fully investigate and identify all factors that may have contributed to a crash and injury.
Motorcycle Accident Settlements
In your personal injury claim, a demand for compensation should include the full impact of your injuries. Injury Lawyers Tucson works with doctors to make sure that your injury type, which is central to your claim, will reflect current and future compensation. Injuries related to motorcycle crashes include:
Neck and Shoulder Injury
Damage to neck and shoulder (soft tissue injuries) can do permanent damage to range of motion or cause chronic pain.
Traumatic brain damage or a head injury affects both physical and cognitive performance.
A motorcycle collision can leave victims paralyzed or with chronic back pain. Sometimes ongoing medication is needed or special equipment and accommodations.
Severe burns can not only affect nerve function, but they can permanently scar or disfigure an accident victim.
Likely victims with broken bones or permanent loss of a limb will experience a lot of pain and suffering. Often the recovery and healing time may affect ability to work.
Organ Damage Injury
Damage to a vital organ is a life-threatening injury can seriously compromise a victim’s health.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is real and can affect a victim’s life like a physical injury.
Regardless of the severity of your injury, if your accident was due to the negligence of another party, you are entitled to claim compensation for damages.
