Motorcycle accidents are very different from car accidents, not only when they occur but in how the case must be handled legally. Motorcycle accident victims are far more likely to be killed or severely injured than occupants of enclosed vehicles. Often, there are no reliable witnesses. Bikers often face prejudice that other accident victims do not have to contend with. The Madison motorcycle accident lawyers of Boller & Vaughan LLC can help you and your family get the compensation you so badly need.
The motorcycle lawyers of Boller & Vaughan LLC make a point to get to know you and your family personally. You can meet with us in a relaxed setting at our office, in your home, or in your hospital room. It is important that we understand how your injuries have affected you and your family and the impact that your motorcycle accident has had on all of your lives.
This gives us the power to diffuse prejudice on the part witnesses and of the jury by presenting you as an individual that jury members can relate to and empathize with, who is truly suffering and deserves compensation for the harm that another person’s negligence or intentional misconduct has caused you and your loved ones.
Motorcycle Accident Challenges
Motorcycle accidents are often single vehicle or hit-and-run accidents, with no witnesses. Motorcycle accident victims may not be able to recall the details of the accident due to their injuries. Even when there are witnesses, they may not be reliable. Witnesses may not have seen what truly caused the accident or lack the fundamental understanding of what can cause a motorcycle to crash and do not really know what they saw.
Calculating the value of your motorcycle can also be challenging. The insurance company will always undervalue a bike. Custom and aftermarket parts and any custom work that you or someone else has performed on the bike can greatly increase its value over stock and without the right expert testimony that value can be very difficult to prove, especially if you do not have receipts.
