Boulder Motorcycle Accident Attorney Helps Injured Riders Receive Compensation

For motorcycle enthusiasts, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of the wind in your face and the freedom of the open road. Navigating a motorcycle around other drivers, on the other hand, can be a very different type of thrill. Far too many drivers operate their cars while distracted and fail to notice the motorcycles sharing their road. As a result, auto/motorcycle accidents can occur and motorcycle riders are at particular risk for serious injury or even death. This is why it is so vital that injured riders talk to a Boulder motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure that they receive the help and compensation they deserve.

Types of Compensation

Motorcyclists involved in an accident have a much greater risk of suffering serious head or spinal cord injuries than occupants of passenger cars and trucks. Due to the seriousness of injuries that often result, people involved in a motorcycle accident have particular need to have a motorcycle accident attorney in Boulder working for them. Some of the types of damages that may be recovered include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Disability
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death benefits for survivors

Only an experienced Boulder motorcycle accident attorney can help determine the types of damages and compensation that are possible after an accident. Timing is everything, however, so motorcycle accident victims should contact a lawyer immediately following an accident so that their lawyer can start investigating their case and gathering crucial evidence.

Finding the Help You Need

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, do not leave your physical and financial future unprotected. Do not assume that the insurance companies involved will do the right thing. Their job is to pay you as little money as possible. They may even dispute your claim and try to leave you left holding the bill. With a Boulder motorcycle accident lawyer working for you, you can make sure that your rights are protected and you receive the full compensation you deserve. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, please don’t hesitate to contact an experienced Boulder motorcycle accident attorney at Sloat & Nicholson, P.C. at 303-447-1144 today for a FREE initial consultation regarding your potential case.
