Motorcyclists love their hobby and it’s not hard to understand why.

Why a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

It’s easy to think that any personal injury attorney could handle a motorcycle accident case, even if they have no experience in the matter. While it’s true that any lawyer can try to oversee a lawsuit like this, the chances of success may be improved by working with counsel that has specific experience with all that makes a motorcycle accident different from, say, a car accident.

Motorcycle accidents are highly likely to be more serious in nature than other types of crashes. Statistics back this up. The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and Bureau of Motor Crash found that even though motorcycle accidents account for less than 2 percent of all crashes, they result in 15 percent of deaths.

Furthermore, even non-fatal motorcycle accidents are more likely to end with a catastrophic injuries. A motorcyclist isn’t protected by the typical safety features enjoyed by someone in a car or truck. The cyclist is more likely to be thrown forward and land on their head or neck.

The result is that motorcycle injuries have a higher chance of resulting in injuries to the brain and spinal cord, leaving them with permanent disabilities.

An experienced attorney understands all that must go into calculating an appropriate settlement in motorcycle accident cases. Dollard Evans Whalin understands what it takes to win, and we fight hard to make it happen. Call our Noblesville office today at (317) 854-5877 or contact us online to set up a free consultation.

Settlement Value in an Indiana Motorcycle Accident

An attorney must have a good understanding of what level of damages need to be paid out. It won’t be as simple as tabulating up immediate medical expenses–even though those will be considerable.

The Noblesville motorcycle accident lawyer must be able to project out and consider the long-term costs of rehabilitation. An attorney has to ask questions like whether a home needs to be refitted with ramp ways to replace staircases and other renovations aimed at improving accessibility. Lost wages have to be calculated, including an assessment of how much long-term career earnings were impacted by the injury.

Those are just the economic damages. There are still the non-economic damages–often called “pain and suffering” that have to be factored in. No one can truly place a monetary value on the quality of a person’s time with friends, family, and their enjoyment of hobbies–like motorcycling. But a realistic assessment has to be made on how much of this has been lost and then offer some compensation 

Getting a fair settlement that truly considers all of this requires a lawyer who can make a holistic assessment of how their client has suffered and know what that means in light of Indiana law.

Dollard Evans Whalin has motorcycle accident attorneys who think through everything strategically, communicate with their clients, and then get into the legal trenches and fight with the insurance company for a settlement that’s fair and just.
