New Hampshire Motorcycle Accident Compensation

Posted by Ryan Russman | Oct 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

Motorcyclists face the possibility of severe bodily harm on the road because they must share the road with much larger automobiles. Unlike drivers in automobiles, people who ride a motorcycle are more exposed to injury given that these vehicles are open-air vehicles. Because of this motorcycle riders are less protected than those riding in a car, bus, or truck, the damage to a person on a motorcycle can be very severe.

A motorcycle accident in New Hampshire could occur for a variety of reasons. Automobile drivers often become distracted and do not see the cyclist on the road. Further, some drivers erroneously believe they have more rights than people who drive motorcycles and become enraged when a motorcyclist is nearby or causes them to slow down. As a result, drivers begin to drive more aggressively. In addition, the New Hampshire streets can often be crowded causing dangerous collisions.

NH Motorcycle Accident Attorney

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident in New Hampshire, there may be feelings of physical pain, a fear of getting on the road again, and emotional distress.

The first step is to contact a NH motorcycle accident attorney immediately. A qualified personal injury attorney like Attorney Russman, can investigate your situation and build a successful case for you. Attorney Russman will investigate the scene of the accident shortly after it occurred to preserve evidence and he will study the scene to review the conditions of the road at the time of the accident including any wet pavement, skid marks and roadblocks. He will also gather eyewitness testimony.

Thus, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as you can before the evidence is no longer available, or in the case of a witness, before the memory of the accident fades. The attorney will communicate with insurance companies, handle medical concerns, and determine your damages. Most of all, Attorney Russman will fight for you and make sure you get the best settlement possible.

Motorcycle Injury Compensation

Motorcycle injuries that occur as a result of an accident are generally eligible for personal injury compensation. A motorcyclist who has suffered injuries caused by a negligent driver may receive payment. Payment for pain and suffering, disfigurement, emotional distress, economic loss, and repair or replacement of the motorcycle are among the potentially recoverable damages.

The court divides damages between two categories, general and specific.

General damages are those that necessarily flow from the injury. General damages include, but are not limited to, damages for emotional and physical pain.

Special damages include, but are not limited to, medical bills, medication, and physical therapy.

Severe motorcycle injuries can result in expensive medical treatment and lengthy recovery times. Victims would rather have avoided the accident altogether, however, if a motorcyclist does have an accident, these cases can be worth a significant amount of money. Less severe accidents can result in less compensation, especially if there was less pain and suffering, less of an emotional effect, and less lost wages.

A NH Motorcycle Accident Attorney, like Attorney Russman, can determine the damages in your case. Assessing the value of a personal injury case is a difficult task, but Attorney Russman has the necessary experience. Once the necessary evidence is obtained, he can prove the monetary amount of your case and ensure you receive a fair settlement for your motorcycle injuries. Whether you were in a serious crash or suffered minor injuries, the Russman Law Offices will make sure your rights are protected.
