Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Central Virginia

The small size of motorcycles and their comparatively low costs of purchase and operation are what attract many riders to these vehicles for both commuting and leisure. Sadly, that same small size that makes a motorcycle attractive also makes them exceptionally vulnerable on the roads to distracted and inattentive drivers.

Without the protection of seat belts, airbags, and other safety features found in cars, motorcyclists often sustain far more traumatic injuries if they are involved in an accident. Other vehicles on the roadway, and sometimes the perilous condition of the road itself, can lead to crashes with injuries that turn your life upside-down. After you’ve been involved in an accident, it can feel as though you have more questions than answers. How will I pay my mounting medical bills? How will I support my family while I recover? What about my job? Do I need a lawyer to help me?

We at Allen & Allen understand that you feel your life has been shattered, and we have made it our mission to help you put the pieces back together.

What Should I Do in the Event of a Motorcycle Accident?

Under Virginia law, you may have the right to recover monetary damages if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident through the negligence or recklessness of another person. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of property

The attorneys at Allen & Allen can help you to determine:

  • The rights you have to collect from the negligent driver’s insurance company or from the entity responsible for the safe upkeep of the roads.
  • How to collect uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical payments coverage from your own insurance company.
  •  How to obtain a fair settlement offer for damages through negotiation.
  • What evidence may need to be presented in order to collect appropriate financial compensation.

Many insurance companies will contact you as early as the day after a crash to obtain a recorded statement about your injuries and your accident. These statements are not in your best interest when the full extent of your injuries and your financial burden have yet to be determined. You are under no legal obligation to provide such a statement, and if you do, it could be used against you during the settlement process. You can help to protect yourself by contacting an attorney at Allen & Allen to discuss your situation before you speak with the insurance companies.

If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may have questions about your next steps. Our convenient Glove Compartment Quick Reference Guide is an invaluable aid to help steer you through the crucial steps to take right after an accident.

Another handy source of advice about what to do after a crash is our online question-and-answer guide, “What Should I Do at the Scene of an Accident?” Both of these resources were created by our team of experienced lawyers, personal injury attorneys with your protection in mind.

Injury Types

Catastrophic Injuries

Any injury that affects the functioning of the spine, spinal cord, skull, or brain can lead to limited cognitive functioning and mobility. Permanent disabilities as a result of a severe automobile crash can have a major impact on a victim's quality of life and financial means.

Paralysis

When the damage to the spinal cord is classified as a "complete" injury to the spine, nerve sensation and voluntary movement is diminished, resulting in paralysis. A victim of a car accident with this type of injury will have to deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives, often limiting them financially as well.

Spinal Injuries

Upon impact in an auto accident, the spine and spinal cord can experience damaging compression that can lead to bone breakage or nerve damage. A spinal cord injury can lead to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs and can impact the quality of life of a victim forever.

Wrongful Death

The death of a family member due to a fatal accident caused by someone else's negligence can be emotionally and financially devastating. While families are left trying to cope with a tragedy, Allen & Allen can help you recover damages through reimbursement or compensation for the dramatic changes that will follow.
