What Does a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Do?

Motorcycles have been a popular mode of travel in Twin Falls, Idaho, for many years. They’re great for riding to work or weekend getaways. But with new residents and population growth comes more vehicles on the road. And the more cars and trucks, the higher the risk of motorcycle crashes. Many of these accidents lead to injuries or even death. The Advocates’ team of experienced attorneys is well-equipped to handle all aspects of a personal injury claim involving a motorcycle accident.

Working with us means you will have a lawyer assigned to your case. This person is an advocate, an ally; they will fight for what is fair. This means they will work toward a settlement to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and temporary transportation costs. As lawyers, we work to determine the facts, gather evidence, and collect eyewitness testimonies from your motorcycle crash. Using all the information we can find, we will create an accurate depiction of how your crash happened and why the at-fault party is responsible for your losses.

Reasons to Choose the Advocates

Every motorcycle accident is different, but with our experience and expertise, we can help with your claim, no matter how complicated and how many people are involved. Here are some of the reasons people prefer The Advocates:

We work on a contingency fee basis. This means payment is contingent upon our ability to win your claim or case. You don’t pay for our services unless we successfully get your settlement. With a contingency fee, there is no risk in hiring a personal injury lawyer from The Advocates. Once we win, we will take a small percentage of your settlement to cover our fee.

According to research, hiring a personal injury attorney tends to increase the settlement amount of a claim. Because lawyers understand the legalities, have experience with a variety of claim types, and know how insurers work, they can build a more compelling case than an accident victim can on their own. Our attorneys can also devote more time to a claim and have insights into what is necessary for a legitimate claim.

Lawyers at The Advocates can file a claim as well as litigate a suit. Because we are a team of attorneys, we can take unsettled cases to trial. All attorneys are lawyers licensed to litigate. Personal injury lawyers that are not attorneys can file a claim but cannot represent you in court.

Working with insurance companies is frustrating and can feel hopeless. Insurers will rarely pay what a claim is worth unless pressed by a lawyer. Some insurance companies even look for ways to completely avoid paying on a settlement owed. The Advocates can help by handling the stress of working with insurance adjusters.

After hiring us, one of our motorcycle accident attorneys will contact the insurance company for you. Our objective is to reach an optimal financial solution.

Recovering from any accident is difficult, but a motorcycle crash can be more traumatic than your typical vehicle collision. You certainly don’t want to be burdened with expensive medical treatments. However, people injured in a motorcycle crash often avoid medical care because they fear the cost. The Advocates’ motorcycle accident attorneys work towards settlements that include payments for all medical treatments.

The property damage and injury type vary from crash to crash because there are many potential scenarios. The Advocates have experience with all kinds of motorcycle accidents. Regardless of how many parties are involved and how nuanced the details of a crash are, we can help.

Every motorcycle accident is an emergency. We know time is essential in filing a legitimate claim. Our Twin Falls motorcycle accident attorneys take every call seriously and are quick to respond. Once hired, we jump into action, gathering case details from witnesses and the parties involved in the crash.

Your job is to recover at home or in the hospital. Our job is to reach a resolution that holds the responsible party accountable for your losses. From start to finish, we will maintain an open line of communication — you can contact us anytime. And don’t worry about talking with insurance companies — we will navigate all their questions and demands.

Why Choose the Advocates Over Other Twin Falls Law Firms?

After a motorcycle accident, you may be rushed to the emergency room to treat your injuries. When you start your recovery, your accident injuries might begin to impact your work, diminish your income, and impede your normal lifestyle.

Many insurers work to minimize their client’s liability and take as little responsibility as possible. The questions and confusion may be overwhelming. Many motorcycle accident victims ask:

  • Can I prove the other person was at fault even if my claim was rejected?
  • Can I get compensated for my damaged motorcycle?
  • What are my legal options?
  • If I am unable to work, what happens to my source of income?
  • Who pays my medical bills, and how?
  • How can I find temporary transportation?

The Advocates of Twin Falls have heard it all and found answers to these and many more questions. We look at every accident from the victim’s point of view and sympathize with the anger, fear, frustration, and disillusionment you likely feel. And we are well aware of the games insurers like to play.

At The Advocates, we don’t let insurance adjusters push our clients around. We battle every step of the way, so you can get the compensation you deserve.

How Long Does It Take to Resolve a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

When you contact The Advocates, we prioritize your claim and immediately begin the legal process. As we handle your motorcycle accident claim, we will:

  • Work towards a fair settlement
  • Provide legal help and file a legitimate accident claim
  • Demonstrate negligence and liability with evidence and facts
  • If necessary, file a lawsuit and take the case before a judge
  • Create a claim for any property damage
  • Compile all medical records
  • Track all bills related to your case

Motorcycle accidents tend to be more dangerous than truck and car crashes. These types of claims may last months or even years. We always recommend our clients take the time they need for a full recovery. If you rush back from an injury and require more treatment because you didn’t follow medical advice, getting compensation for additional expenses is difficult. When your injuries aren’t severe, and our lawyers have proven liability, settling a case within 5-8 months is possible.

In extreme cases, we will have no choice but to take a claim to trial, which might take several years to resolve. It’s important to note that litigation is time-consuming as the discovery phase sometimes lasts 6-12 months.

If this should happen, we can litigate your case because everyone at the advocates is an Attorney. Personal injury lawyers who are not attorneys can only file claims. If your case goes to court, they can’t help.
