Motorcycle accidents are some of the most severe of all types of vehicular accidents. When riding a motorcycle, you do not have the added protections a vehicle brings, and only have your protective helmet and possibly special padding in your jacket and pants. If you get hit and thrown off your bike, you may be seriously injured and hurt. While your helmet protects your head, the rest of your body could end up with broken bones. You might find yourself confined to a wheelchair after the accident, and your quality of life drastically changed because of someone else’s negligence.

Luckily, you do have legal rights that you can exercise against the other person who caused your injuries. In order to use these rights, you need to retain a qualified and experienced motorcycle injury attorney in your area. Your attorney works on your behalf to file your claim based on the evidence they gather from your initial free consultation, as well as medical reports, police reports, and accident reports. This information is also used to establish the monetary amount of damages you are able to seek under the law.

Your motorcycle injury attorney should also work on your case on a contingency basis. What this means is he or she does not require any payment upfront to represent you. Further, they only get paid if they win your case, either through an acceptable settlement or a verdict in your favor in a court of law. The amount you have to pay your attorney after winning your case is typically around a third of the settlement or verdict amount awarded.

After a Pedestrian Accident Find Out Your Legal Rights from an Attorney

January 2, 2014

There are several different types of pedestrian accidents where you can be entitled to seek monetary damages against another party. You may have been hit by a motor vehicle while you had the right of way crossing the street in a designated crosswalk. You could have slipped, tripped, and fallen down because a sidewalk was in disrepair. You might have been knocked down by someone riding a bike on the sidewalk and knocked out into traffic where a vehicle ran you over. These are just a few examples of the various accidents than can occur, and which result in bodily injuries.

After a pedestrian accident, the first thing you need to do is seek medical treatment for your injuries. The second thing you should do is contact our law firm, here at Madison Law Group, and schedule a free consultation with an attorney. During you initial meeting, your lawyer will ask you questions about the accident, review any medical, accident and police reports you brought with you, and make an evaluation as to whether you have grounds for filing a case.

Because it costs nothing to obtain a consultation from our pedestrian accident attorney, it is worthwhile to take the small amount of time needed to find out if you have a monetary claim. Often, people do not know they could have a case, and do not take the time to find out. As a result, they are left paying for medical bills and other expenses that otherwise would be the financial responsibly of the person who caused your injuries.
