Salt Lake City Motorcycle Accident LawyerRequest Free Consultation
If you live in Salt Lake City and drive a motorcycle then you might know just how easy it is to get into an accident with so many vehicles on the road. What you may not know is that drivers of motorcycles can be injured much more severely than other motorists and it doesn’t always have to be because of a collision with another vehicle. Motorcycles are simply at greater risk of being injured, sometimes severely in an accident due to the number of larger vehicles on the road. We all try to do our best to be safe drivers, but we can’t account for the actions of other drivers.
That’s why, if you find yourself in an accident and it wasn’t your fault, regardless of how it happened, you need to consult with a personal injury attorney and find out if you have a case. Chances are, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages. Even if you think you aren’t, it’s worth a chance to call and speak with a local injury attorney who knows the law in Utah and can help.
That’s when you need the experienced attorneys at We Win Injury Law to help you prepare your case. In fact, not all motorists know this, but you don’t even have to come into contact with the at-fault driver if you’re on a motorcycle and you still may have a case. There are two types of accident cases for motorcyclists and we will discuss both of them here.
A standard collision is your typical accident where one vehicle crashes into the other. If it is the fault of another driver that you are in an accident and collide with their vehicle, you are entitled to damages in a court of law.
You may have severe injuries and a number of other damages after this type of accident and it is only fair that you receive compensation for all of your losses as a result.
No Contact Accidents
Another type of accident that not all motorcyclists are aware of is the no-contact accident. If a motorcyclist is injured as a result of another driver, even if they don’t come into contact with that other driver, then they may still be entitled to compensation.
An example of this would be a driver behaving erratically and forcing a motorcyclist to take evasive action to avoid a collision. In this case, the injuries and damage the motorcyclist sustain as a result of the evasive action they take is the redirect fault of the reckless driver. This can be seen in cases where a driver fails to signal before turning, does not stop in time for traffic, or otherwise drives erratically.
Even without a collision, a motorcyclist may still be severely injured trying to save their vehicle from a collision and this would ultimately be the result of negligence on the part of the at-fault driver. This is why, even if you don’t think you have a case, you should contact an injury lawyer at We Win Injury Law to see if you have a case.
