How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Greenwood?
It costs you nothing out of pocket and nothing upfront to hire our firm. We work on a contingency-fee basis. We don’t request payment unless we successfully resolve your case. If we can’t recover compensation for your losses, you don’t pay our attorney’s fees.
Recoverable Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Case
While every case is different, if you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, our team can help you recover the following:
- Emergency transportation costs
- Hospital and doctors’ fees
- Ongoing medical care costs
- Prescription medications and mobility aids
- Lost wages from time spent away from work
- Diminished future earning capacity, if your injuries affect your ability to work
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring, disfigurement, and disability
If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, we can file a wrongful death claim to recover funeral and burial costs, loss of future income, and other expenses.
We Have Recovered Millions for Our Clients
We have more than 35 years of experience. In that time, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients. Some of our previous cases include:
- Maximum recovery for a motorcycle accident claimant who suffered paralysis
- A six-figure settlement for the family of a decedent
- A confidential settlement for a 47-year old injured in a rear-end motorcycle accident
We are confident that we can bring a favorable resolution to your situation.
You Have a Limited Time to File Your Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit
IC § 34-11-2-4 is Indiana’s personal injury and wrongful death statute of limitations. You generally have two years from the date of your motorcycle accident to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file your case within this deadline, the courts could dismiss your case with prejudice, meaning you can never file it ever again.
Our team can file your case before the deadline expires. While most cases are settled through insurance settlements, we will prepare your case as though it’s going to trial.
How Our Greenwood Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Serve You
Since 1985, our founder, Randy Sevenish, has been serving injured people. Our team has recovered millions for our clients, and we will seek maximum coverage for your losses. With our team on your side:
We Can Prove Your Accident was Caused By Negligence
Your lawyer can demonstrate that another party caused your accident. We can do this by:
- Reviewing the police report
- Interviewing witnesses
- Watching traffic camera footage
- Consulting accident reconstruction specialists
- Visiting the accident scene
If we can prove the other party caused your collision, you could seek full recovery for your losses.
We Can Negotiate with the Insurance Company
An insurance company may have already offered you an out-of-court settlement. However, an early offer may not account for your future losses. Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible to injured claimants. They know that once you accept a settlement, they can no longer be held liable for your ongoing expenses.
Your lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company and push for a settlement that fairly compensates you. Our motorcycle accident lawyers know what they are doing and can pursue the recovery you deserve.
We Will Investigate Your Case
In all Greenwood motorcycle accident cases, we first:
- Visit the collision scene
- Take pictures of your injuries and vehicle’s damage
- Interview eyewitnesses
- Read the police report
With this information, we can determine whether the other driver broke any traffic laws or otherwise acted negligently.
We Can Determine What Caused Your Accident
Attorney Sevenish is a longtime motorcyclist. He previously worked as a police officer and has a vast knowledge of personal injury law. In his years of service, he knows that the other party may deny liability because they didn’t see you on the road.
This is not a valid defense. Our team will examine your case and argue that:
- You took reasonable precautions to make yourself visible to other motorists while driving at night.
- You wore highly reflective clothing.
- Your helmet or bike panels were adorned with reflective tape.
- You installed LED headlamps and taillights to increase your visibility.
- You installed safety features such as “brake light flashers” and “headlight modulators” to promote your visibility.
- You were riding with loud exhaust pipes, alerting other drivers that you were in proximity.
Other drivers have a responsibility to be on the lookout for other vehicles. Your motorcycle accident lawyer in Greenwood, IN, can hold the at-fault driver accountable and recover your damages.
We Can Determine the At-Fault and Liable Parties in Your Case
The other driver may not be the only liable party. We will investigate whether a local municipality failed to maintain safe, unobstructed roads. We will also look into whether a manufacturer produced defective parts.
If your accident involved a bus, truck, or another vehicle owned by a corporation, that organization may be found liable, too.
We Can File Your Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit
Even after collecting all the evidence we need to build a strong case, we may not be able to reach a fair settlement. If that happens, we will continue to fight for you by filing a personal injury lawsuit. From there, we will argue your case before a judge and jury.
That’s why it is important to hire an attorney who has litigated on behalf of client like you. We are proud of the results we have achieved.
Will Your Motorcycle Accident Case Go to Court?
Our years of experience have taught us that most motorcycle accident cases don’t go to court. This is seconded by the American Bar Association (ABA). If your case goes to court, we will do everything in our power to make the process as stress-free as possible. Right now, we just want you to focus on getting better.
