If you're in a motorcycle accident, you're almost five times more likely to get injured, and 27 times more likely to die than in a passenger car accident, reports the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration. If you were injured in a motorcycle crash, or a family member died in one that was caused by the carelessness and negligence of somebody else, an experienced and successful Utah motorcycle accident attorney from Hepworth & Associates is prepared to meet with you and discuss your options at any one of our four locations.
You most likely have a lot of questions, as most motorcycle accident victims do:
- How can you help me to get compensation for my damages?
- How do we pursue making the at-fault party or parties take responsibility?
- How much is expert legal representation going to cost me?
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
A serious motorcycle accident injury is likely to affect you for the rest of your life. Some of the most serious injuries include:
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
- Multiple fractures requiring surgery
- Organ damage
- Cartilage and tissue injuries
- Severe infection from "road rash"
Get the Compensation That You Deserve
Motorcycles present a low profile in traffic, and other drivers just don't see them until the last second or upon impact. This is especially true when the other driver is turning left. Our experienced, respected and aggressive motorcycle accident lawyers can help you get the compensation that you deserve for your present and future medical expenses, lost earnings, permanent disfigurement, and disability, pain and suffering and loss of a normal life.
Shifting the Blame Over to You
As soon as the opposing insurance company learns that you've been injured in a motorcycle crash with their insured person, they know that they’re facing significant financial loss. They’re going to do anything that it can to shift the blame for the accident over onto you. Their objective is to pay you as little as possible or nothing at all for your damages; that's how the bottom line is preserved for insurance companies. Our objective is to maximize your compensation.
We Have the Expertise and Resources to Effectively Represent You
After suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle crash, it can take many months of treatment and therapy to reach the plateau of maximum medical improvement. We'll be preparing your case every step of the way. Hepworth & Associates has the expertise and resources necessary to bring your personal injury case before a judge and jury when necessary.
If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle crash, it's wise to be cautious about cooperating with the opposing insurer. The law doesn't require you to. You can preserve, protect, and assert your rights by contacting an attorney right away.
