3 Things to Know | Motorcycle Accident Case Value
There are several components when we’re valuing the case. Your injuries are probably the top, along with your medical bills. Those are the numbers that we take to the other side to show what the value of the injuries are. We also take into account your pain and suffering – what type of medical treatment, how extensive and painful it was, and how it’s affected your daily life. We take all that into account as we negotiate the value of your case with the other side.
3 Things to Know | Motorcycle Accident Claim for an Injured Passenger
The answer is 100% yes. We have had cases with that exact same scenario: a husband is driving the motorcycle with his wife on the back and they get into an accident. Both the husband and the wife have a claim. If you are a passenger on the motorcycle, you have a claim just like the driver of that motorcycle. You will have a claim against the person that hit you, and more importantly, hopefully the person that hit you has insurance and you have a claim against that insurance company as well.
Choosing an Attorney
One of the most important things is consistency. One thing that sets our firm apart from other firms is you’re with the same Jacksonville motorcycle accident attorney from start to finish, all the way through trial, if necessary.
There is no shifting responsibility to other attorneys or different paralegals. You’re with the same team, and that gives you consistency and builds a relationship. One thing that is so important is for your attorney to get to know you so ultimately, if you have to go to trial, that attorney is able to tell your story. Creating a relationship for that length of time is highly important and it makes for a very successful and effective case.
