Motorcycle accidents are common and often intense. Motorcyclists are easy to miss on the road, and since they don’t have the benefit of being protected by a vehicle, accidents result in more serious injury and fatalities.
Additionally, since motorcycle riders don’t have the protection of being surrounded by their vehicle, when they are in an accident, the injuries are more intense and often fatal. Those who do walk away are lucky, but should still seek medical attention after being in a motorcycle accident.

If you or are a loved one is involved in an accident that involves motorcycles, there are a few things that you must do:
1. Call the police and file a report.
2. Get the personal information of any other parties involved.
3. Document the scene. Ensure there are photos of any vehicles involved, where they are situated, and any damage received. Make note of anything else that you think is important. Talk to anyone who may have witnessed what happened.
4. Seek treatment. Ensure that you’re covered for insurance claims, mitigate your harm, and speed up your recovery by getting immediate treatment. You must see a doctor even if you have little to no symptoms.
5. Inform your insurance company of the incident, but don’t get into any details until you’ve spoken to your lawyer.
6. Call Snedaker Law. You need a motorcycle accident lawyer who understands the injuries that can occur during a motorcycle accident. Snedaker Law knows what to do and how to best assist you in recovering so you can get back on the road.
The most common motorcycle injuries involve the rider’s legs, knees, and feet. Depending on the severity of the incident, injuries could range from small bruises and cuts to more serious sprains, dislocations, and broken bones.
The head and neck are also commonly injured in motorcycle accidents, and many drivers suffer from road rash.
Motorcyclists aren’t always awarded appropriate compensation for accidents. Other parties involved in the accident may have vastly different insurance plans, which means that certain aspects (like damage to the bike itself) may or may not be covered.
After a motorcycle accident, your insurance company will not be on your side. Instead, their main concern is settling the claim as quickly and as cheaply as possible. You may be denied a perfectly valid claim, or receive compensation that is much less than what you deserve.
If you can’t reach a settlement with your insurance company, your other option is to bring the case to court. But in our experience, jurors aren’t always sympathetic to motorcyclists, and if you lose the case, you may be out of compensation altogether.
Keep in mind that the statute of limitations for this kind of case is four years. If you don’t pursue legal action in this amount of time, you’ll no longer have the opportunity to do so.
To get the compensation you deserve, you need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer that can stand up for you. This expert will negotiate with the insurance adjuster, handle the details of your claim, and demand appropriate compensation.
We’ve been through hundreds of motorcycle accidents and know how to apply the laws in a way that will get the settlement that you deserve. We protect you and your best interests by finding out what really happened at the scene of the accident and proving that the other parties acted negligently.
The compensation you can expect from a motorcycle accident depends on a lot of different factors and moving parts.
As we build your case, we’ll consider the details of the scenario, who was at fault, and the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life.
While some motorcyclists only receive a settlement for their injuries, others have successfully claimed expenses for pain and suffering, necessary home renovations, lost wages, and more.
There’s no true average settlement, but with Snedaker Law on your side, you can expect to receive between $15,000 and $100,000 for a typical motorcycle accident.
