Motorcycle Accidents

Louisiana Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

With little protection for the occupants, motorcycle accidents are among the most catastrophic personal injuries in Louisiana. Common injuries include severe burns, broken bones, and even death. Recovering from a motorcycle accident can take years, and in some cases, a lifetime. As a victim, you are worried about the high costs of medical bills, as well as lost wages. You also fear what will happen if you never fully recover. How will you provide for your family if you can’t go back to work or can only return at a diminished capacity?

These questions are common after suffering severe injuries from a Louisiana motorcycle accident. Herrin Kervin understands the physical and emotional toll these accidents take and is here to help. Contact us today, so we can discuss your case and help you recover compensation.

WHO IS LIABLE FOR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS?

Some motorcycle accidents are straightforward. For instance, if a motorist speeds, runs a red light, and crashes into a motorcycle, the motorist is at fault. However, other accidents aren’t nearly as cut and dried. For instance, if the motorcyclist gets in an accident after hitting a pothole, the government agency in charge of maintaining the roads might be responsible. On the other hand, the motorcycle manufacturer could be liable if a malfunction led to the accident. Properly investigating the case and filing claims against all responsible parties are key to collecting the maximum amount of damages. The Louisiana motorcycle accident lawyers at Herrin Kervin have spent their entire careers investigating these cases and holding the responsible parties accountable.

COMMON MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES

The Louisiana motorcycle accident attorneys see clients with a wide range of injuries. People commonly suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, internal injuries, burns, and road rash. Accident victims can also end up with extremity amputation after a wreck. Because of the severity of these injuries, many people spend years recovering. It’s not unusual for people to have to undergo surgical procedures, rehabilitation, and other treatments. Even after all the hard work, many don’t fully recover and can’t go back to the same jobs, if they can work at all. Herrin Kervin fights for clients, so they can get compensation to cover their long-term needs. If you are worried about how you will handle the financial impact of your injuries down the road, contact Herrin Kervin for help.

HOW MUCH IS THE CLAIM WORTH?

Louisiana motorcycle accident claims vary in value. The amount of damages is based on the extent of your injuries, the expected recovery, and other factors. Also, the degree of the other party’s negligence can play a role in the amount of money you’re eligible to receive. While each case is different, a motorcycle accident attorney at Herrin Kervin can give you an estimate of what your case is worth after evaluating the evidence. Then, your attorney can attempt to settle with the insurance company. If that does not work, the case can go to trial.

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

You have one year from the date of your motorcycle accident to file a claim. Fling after the deadline will lead to a dismissal, preventing you from collecting damages. While you can file up to the expiration date, you shouldn’t wait to investigate the claim and file the evidence. Your Louisiana motorcycle accident attorney can get on the case immediately while the evidence and eye-witness accounts are still fresh.  This will make it easier for you to prove your case and collect a monetary award.
