Pursuing Damages From A Negligent Driver

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, you deserve compensation for your vehicle’s damage, your personal injuries, medical bills and lost wages. In many instances, it’s possible to receive such compensation through a settlement with the driver’s automobile insurance company. Other situations will require that you prove the driver’s negligence in a court of law.

YOUR FIRST COURSE OF ACTION

In the immediate aftermath of your accident, it is imperative that you perform a few simple steps. If you are in extreme pain, obtain medical attention. Try to take snapshots of the accident scene or draw a picture if you don’t have a camera/smartphone. Look around for eyewitnesses and write down their contact information. Their testimony could prove essential in your quest for justice. Call the police to file an accident report. Once your health allows you to, meet with a Boulder motorcycle accident attorney. You’ll want to ally with someone who will zealously advocate on your behalf.

JOIN FORCES WITH A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

Your personal injury attorney will analyze the details of the accident and determine if your case has merit. If there is any possibility that the other driver’s negligent behavior caused the accident, your attorney will have an excellent chance to obtain compensation on your behalf. He will gather evidence in the form of medical records, eyewitness statements, police reports, pictures of the vehicles and accident scene etc. He will complete all the required legal forms and legal correspondence, represent you in court and negotiate a favorable settlement if opposing counsel is willing to engage in such a discussion.

PURSUING DAMAGES IN A COURT OF LAW

If the opposing party is adamant that the accident was your fault, your Boulder motorcycle accident attorney will bring the case to a court of law where he will advocate on your behalf. His knowledge of the law and ability to connect evidence to the other driver’s negligent behavior will prove critically important. He’ll craft arguments and navigate through legal obstacles in a manner that a “pro se” defendant cannot.

While your attorney builds your case and does everything possible to prove the other driver’s lack of due care caused the accident, you can remain focused on getting your life back in order. Let your personal injury attorney do the “heavy lifting” while you rebuild your physical and mental health in an effort to return to work.
