Helping Motorcycle Accident Victims in Louisiana
There are many reasons we ride motorcycles—thrills, fuel economy, and the open road. But motorcyclists face a unique set of dangers on the road, and when accidents happen, they often result in serious injuries. When this happens, you need the motorcycle accident attorneys at Dudley DeBosier. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates that the number of deaths on motorcycles was about 30 times more than the number of cars per mile traveled in 2010.
Our motorcycle accident attorneys can help get you the personal injury compensation you’re owed for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our legal staff has years of experience helping motorcycle accident victims with their personal injury claims, and we may be able to help you, too.
We Understand Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists are often characterized as reckless or dangerous on the road by insurance companies. Our motorcycle accident lawyers know that isn’t always true.
We understand the dangers riders face, and we know that even the most cautious riders can be involved in serious accidents, such as:
- motor vehicle traffic failing to yield right of way to a motorcyclist
- roadway defects leading to a loss of motorcycle control
- motor vehicle drivers not recognizing motorcycles in moving traffic
Don’t let the insurance company place their stereotypes above your rights to a fair recovery from your injuries. Let the motorcycle accident lawyers at Dudley DeBosier protect your rights to compensation.
We are proud to be the official injury lawyers of the Motorcycle Awareness Campaign. We support their initiatives and their riders. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident, give us a call today.
Why Should I Contact a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
When it comes to receiving proper compensation following an accident, those involving motorcycles come with some of the most complicated procedural complications.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, also called ‘no-fault’ insurance is a policy that covers medical bills and injury compensation if you are hurt in a motor vehicle wreck, no matter who is at fault. Here’s the issue: in Louisiana, PIP coverage is optional, and even if you have it, it generally doesn’t extend to cover motorcycles. This means that receiving your due compensation from a motorcycle accident becomes a process that adds significant stress and pain to your recovery.
You need an injury attorney that specializes in motorcycle accidents to help you navigate the difficult landscape that awaits in the aftermath of your accident.
When you consult an expert motorcycle accident lawyer, they will build your claim by:
- Collecting police reports, photographing the scene and documenting witnesses
- Researching details about other drivers involved, including their driving history
- Recreating the scene and the accident to gain key insights about your accident
- Helping to pay your immediate medical bills and reviewing medical records
- Collecting additional evidence and information that strengthens your claim
- Consulting with experts and dealing with insurance companies on your behalf
The laws that deal with the enforcement of justice in motorcycle accidents differ from those which pertain to other types of automobile accidents. The New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport-based motorcycle attorneys in the offices of Dudley DeBosier are highly skilled in navigating motorcycle claims procedures throughout Louisiana, and they will fight for your rights throughout the process.
