Personal Injury and Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Personal Injury and Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Because motorcycles do not offer the physical protection that autos do, motorcycle riders are much more susceptible to catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, fractured bones, and wrongful death.

According to the national highway traffic safety administration:

In 2021, there were 109,000 motorcycle accidents, 62,000 involving a motor vehicle collision. While 2,881 crashes were fatal, 42,000 resulted in injuries and 18,000 in property damage. Other accidents were collisions with a fixed object, collisions with something that was not stationary, and non-collisions.

Motorcyclists were about 34 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle crash and eight times more likely to be injured.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle or ATV accident, you can benefit from early representation from an experienced and proactive motorcycle accident lawyer. Do not let the insurance company put their financial interests in front of you and lead you into a quick, unfair settlement.

You have numerous legal rights if you have suffered a head, spinal cord, neck injury, or any other injury in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence. Some of those include, but are not limited to:

reimbursement for damage to your motorcycle
medical expenses for the past and future
lost wages in the past and future
compensation for pain and suffering

To understand the dynamics of a motorcycle case, the lawyer must understand the dynamics of riding a motorcycle. Some of our personal injury lawyers are motorcycle enthusiasts. Some used a motorcycle as their sole source of transportation while in college. Additionally, our lawyers possess knowledge of insurance companies and their practices in attempting to settle motorcycle accident claims quickly.

The following statement underpins the concept of dedication to supporting the individuals’ right to self-representation by designing self-help do-it-yourself kits for many areas of the law.

“Pro se’ representation (representing yourself) is firmly embedded in American jurisprudence yet, for a layperson, this conceptual right is but a meaningless truism without the corresponding abilities to see through a legal maze and use the complicated procedural mechanisms necessary to vindicate that right. “ Moses Apsan, Esq., Assisting the Pro Se Litigant: Unauthorized Practice of Law or the Fulfillment of a Public Need, 3 NYLRev XXVIII (1983).

Many legal proceedings do not require the assistance of anyone, not even a lawyer. The right to self-representation is universally accepted and has been protected by law since the creation of the American government. The Judiciary Act of 1789, enacted by the first Congress and signed by President Washington the day before the sixth amendment specifically provided that “in all the courts of United States, the parties may plead and manage their own causes personally.” The United States Courts of Appeals have repeatedly held that the right of self-representation is protected by the Bill of Rights. Similarly, the individual states, with few exceptions, accord an individual the right of self-representation, explicitly conferring that right in their state constitutions and corresponding statutes. Many state courts, in accord with federal courts, have opined that the right is supported by the United States Constitution. The American Bar Association [ABA], in its Code of Professional Ethics, recognizes that “anyone who does not wish to avail himself of [legal] representation is not required to do so.” With this in mind, this Do it Yourself Law Kit has been designed.

This kit is not intended to replace a lawyer who is the only person qualified to analyze your individual facts and give a legal opinion. Although every effort is made to have this kit up to date, immigration laws and corresponding laws, rules, and regulations are constantly changing.

What is an Independent Medical Examination?

What is an Independent Medical Examination?

Personal injury cases can be stressful, complicated, and scary. Especially if you have never gone through a lawsuit or had to sue anyone before. One of the most important parts of the personal injury lawsuit process is being able to show the nature and extent of the injuries you’ve suffered. To do this, you’ll need to be able to show evidence, such as medical reports from the doctors who have examined your injuries.

However, your doctors will likely not be the only people who take a look at you. The other side in the lawsuit will also want to know the nature and extent of your injuries. They probably won’t want to rely on the word of your doctor. Therefore, to gather information about your injuries, the other side will have its own doctors exam you in an independent medical examination, or IME.

IME and Lawsuits

A person who files a personal injury lawsuit is known as a plaintiff. The plaintiff has a legal obligation to show that he or she has suffered an injury and that the defendant – the person the plaintiff is filing the lawsuit against – is legally responsible for paying for those injuries.

In any personal injury lawsuit, the defendant has the right to require the plaintiff to submit to an independent medical examination. This is true whether the plaintiff claims physical or psychological injuries. It’s also true whether you’re suing an individual, an organization, multiple individuals, or multiple organizations.

The Independent Medical Examination Process

The independent medical examination process is fairly simple. However, not only can the process be intimidating, the doctors who perform them may not always make a report that’s favorable to you or your cause.

Let’s take a look at an example. Let’s say you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident at a local business. You fell downstairs that were covered in oil, suffering an injury to your hip that resulted in medical expenses and painful rehabilitation. You sue the business for the harms you’ve suffered.
The business requests that you receive an independent medical examination from a doctor of its choice. (This doctor is usually selected by the defense attorney and paid by the defendant’s insurance company.) They tell you where the doctor is located, schedule an appointment in advance, and compensate you for the time and expense you incur traveling to the doctor. Once you get there, the doctor exams you and your injuries. The process will be like any other examination but will focus on the injuries you have claimed you sustained as a result of your accident.personal injury lawyers

Talk to a Lawyer Before Submitting to an IME

If the thought of going to a doctor paid by the other party in your lawsuit gives you pause; it should. IMEs can be stressful, and the doctors who perform them can be intimidating. If you’ve been asked to submit to an independent medical examination, you should talk to your attorney about what you need to do to prepare and protect yourself.
