The Denver Motorcycle Accident Attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were more than 34,000 motorcyclists killed, and an estimated 1,222,000 persons treated in U.S. emergency rooms for non-fatal injuries between 2001 and 2008. With more people than ever before riding, those numbers may only rise, and the incidence of motorcycle accidents increase. If you ever find yourself involved in a motorcycle accident, you will undoubtedly have questions. Here are answers to some of the more commonly asked questions:
Q: What should I do if I am involved in a motorcycle accident?
A: In order to preserve your rights, do not admit to any fault or sign anything. Take photographs of any injuries or damage to your motorcycle, and keep copies of any medical records, bills, or any related expenses.
Q: Is a timely investigation of my motorcycle accident case important?
A: Yes. Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to blame the motorcyclist for an accident. To safeguard the value of your claim, a prompt investigation is essential.
Q: Who is responsible for injuries or death to motorcycle operators and passengers?
A: Any individual or entity whose negligence contributed to the cause of the crash could be held responsible. Typically, in cases involving injury it is the driver of the vehicle who is found to be at fault. If the motorcycle operator is at fault, he could be responsible for injuries caused to his passenger.
Q: If I don’t have insurance on my motorcycle can I still sue the driver who hit me?
A: Yes. Lack of insurance does not prohibit you from filing a claim against the driver who was at fault and caused your injury.
Q: How long do I have to file my motorcycle accident injury case?
A: The statute of limitations varies depending on the state in which the accident took place. A different statute may also apply to cases involving a fatality. If you don’t file a claim before your state’s deadline, you could lose your right to sue and recover any money damages.
Q: Do I need to hire a lawyer if I am in a motorcycle accident?
A: A lawyer will be able to determine whether you have a legitimate claim for damages. Individual case details such as compliance with traffic laws, liability, motor vehicle statutes, and medical treatment issues should be analyzed by a personal injury attorney with expertise in the area of motorcycle accidents.
