Motorcycles may provide one with the feeling that comes with the freedom of the open road, but when not operated with a high level of care–or when there are other, irresponsible drivers on the road–a motorcycle crash is possible. In fact, in a single year in the state of Virginia, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles reports that there were more than 2,000 motorcycle crashes, or more than 7.5 crashes per day.
A motorcycle crash can leave a rider with serious injuries, sometimes even ones that are fatal. At the offices of Hampton Injury Law PLC, our experienced motorcycle accident lawyer has been helping those harmed in crashes recover compensation for their losses for more than 20 years.
After a motorcycle crash in Virginia, you should be sure to report your accident to the police, collect the other party’s information, and above all else, seek medical care for your injuries. After doing these things, you should initiate the claims process as soon as possible, giving the insurance company plenty of time to investigate your accident.
Because Virginia is an at-fault car insurance state, you may file a claim for damages with the at-fault party’s insurance. If you carry medical payments insurance, which pays for medical bills regardless of fault, you may also file a claim with your own insurance company.
Motorcycle accidents can have life-changing effects, leaving motorcyclists with disabilities, permanent scarring, and disfigurement, the inability to return to work or do the things they once loved, and often psychological injuries, as well. Our compassionate accident attorney believes that you deserve to be compensated for the full extent of your losses, and will work hard to recover damages on your behalf for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, property damage, emotional anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
Having a knowledgeable lawyer on your side as you navigate the claims process after an accident is important; filing a claim in itself can be a complicated process, as can negotiating for damages, and the state of Virginia maintains strict contributory negligence laws, which hold that if a plaintiff contributed to their injuries in the slightest, they are barred from recovering compensation. Our law firm works around the clock to build your case, prove the fault of the other party, and hold the other driver 100 percent liable for your damages so that you can recover the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle accidents are terrifying, both for those involved and the family members of those who are injured. If you are not sure what to do next to protect your future and your family, please contact Hampton Injury Law PLC today. Case evaluations are offered free of charge, and there is never an obligation to hire our law firm.
