In a recent year, there were 5,932 motorcyclist fatalities in the United States. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident, you need legal representation that you can count on.
A motorcycle accident lawyer will help in gathering evidence, filing your claim with the insurance company, and taking your case to court if necessary. At Malman Law, we take a personal interest in helping you succeed in your motorcycle accident case.
An important element of any claim is having sufficient evidence. A motorcycle accident lawyer will gather any pertinent evidence to help support your claim.
Pertinent information in a motorcycle accident claim may include:
In furthering our investigation, we often work with accident reconstruction experts to recreate the scene of the accident. These experts will investigate your accident and create a report on any of their findings.
Accident reconstruction experts will help to fill in any “holes” that might be present in readily available evidence. They will be able to answer any questions regarding which driver was negligent.
After an accident, you will be filing claims for both bodily injury and property damage. In Illinois, all claims are filed with the at-fault driver’s insurer.
You will need to provide the following information to the insurance company:
Illinois insurance laws require an insurance company to provide a written explanation for any delay in processing an automobile property damage liability claim within 60 days of the date that the accident was reported.
The insurance company’s objective is to pay as little as possible on your claim, but we won’t stop negotiations until you get the compensation that you deserve.
Most motorcycle accident cases are settled out-of-court, but if you are unable to come to a settlement with the insurance company, you may need to go to court. A motorcycle accident lawyer will be well-versed in court rules and will know what court forms need to be submitted and when they are due.
If you do file a lawsuit, your motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to gather information through discovery. Discovery is a phase of litigation by which both parties can exchange information. Discovery may involve:
Discovery is an important step in preparing your case for trial. Your attorney will know what questions to ask and what information to request to be successful in court.
The last thing you want after a motorcycle accident is to end up in court. At Malman Law, we understand that you need compensation for your losses, whether it be financial or emotional damages. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, please contact our office to schedule your free consultation.
