How are motorcycle accident claims different than car accident claims?

Answer:

Differences Between Motorcycle Accidents and Car Accidents How are motorcycle injury claims different than car accident claims in Arizona? Just the other day a motorcycle accident victim called and asked one of our attorneys that question. Here’s what our attorney said. The number one difference is usually if you’re on a motorcycle, you have more serious injuries just because that’s what happens on a motorcycle.

Your medical bills are often much, much higher. In that situation, the hospitals out there file liens against you. They say if you get any money from an insurance company, we’re going to swoop in and take it away from you first. Health insurance companies do the same thing. That’s even more of a reason to call us because that’s where you can actually benefit even more by having a law firm represent you than if you do it on your own.

If you do it on your own, the hospital and insurance company just go you can have what’s leftover. If there’s nothing leftover, do they care? Heck no. That’s another major difference. Beyond that, it’s very common for a motorcycle accident client to suffer concussions, even with a helmet. Hopefully you understand that a helmet can prevent you a lot of the worst kinds of head injuries, but it does not guarantee that you won’t have a concussion.

You know about the secondary impact. You can definitely end up with serious concussions even wearing a helmet. If you have headaches that you didn’t have before the accident and you have short-term memory loss, you feel like you’re in a fog, depression, just posttraumatic stress disorder, those kinds of things go along with concussions. We can get you to top experts at diagnosing and treating those even if you don’t have health insurance. That’s another area where there’s more concussions than in car wrecks. That’s more of a reason to call us.

We really do focus on concussions and traumatic brain injuries. We have expertise in that field. If you go on our website, you’ll see way beyond the average law firm. I even give lectures to doctors on the subject. I even give some educational programs. I’m always surprised at how many doctors are not aware of the latest diagnostic imaging and advances in treatment for concussions and brain injuries. It’s surprising, let’s just put it that way.

Those are some of the major differences. If it’s happened to you, you know that I may never be able to walk with my right ankle again or whatever. You know personally about some of the differences but call us. The call is free. The information is free. The referrals are free, and it can make a difference of tens of thousands, sometimes millions to your case. Call us and we’ll be happy to talk to you because we really do care about you.
