Why Are Motorcycle Accident Cases Difficult to Prove?
It can be difficult to prove that a motorcyclist was not at fault in an accident because insurance companies often argue that their driver could not see them or that there was another cause to the accident. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to handle the complex process of establishing fault in order to get an injured victim the maximum compensation they deserve. Under most circumstances another driver will be deemed at fault if they were:
- Texting and driving
- Not following road safety
It can be especially difficult to prove pain and suffering in a motorcycle accident case because insurance companies tend to downplay injuries in an attempt to provide an inadequate settlement. Typically, an experienced motorcycle lawyer will be able to successfully prove the severity of an injury to get a maximum settlement. The amount you can recover depends on the severity of the injury, the amount of financial strain treating for that injury places you under, and the length of the recovery process.
What are the Legal Fees?
We charge the typical rate for personal injury lawsuits, which is one third of your award. We only charge you a fee if we are able to obtain a settlement on your behalf, as is standard for the industry.
What Insurance Coverage is Required in Johnston RI?
Rhode Island law requires a vehicle to have a minimum coverage amount of $25,000/$50,000 in insurance coverage. This minimum means that if you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you will be entitled to at least $25,000 in liability insurance through the negligent driver’s insurance company. Many policies also have underinsurance coverage available to injured parties through their own insurance which carries the same minimum of $25,000/$50,000. Read more about underinsurance coverage here. In a lot of cases, there is more coverage available than the state standard minimums that our lawyers can uncover for you.
