How Can Gordon McKernan Help After Your Monroe Motorcycle Accident?
The Get Gordon legal team is laser-focused on getting results for our injured clients. We leave no stone unturned with our aggressive approach to delivering you the results you need. Our full-service law firm is driven by the most important evidence of success: satisfied clients.
The majority of motorcycle accident victims are facing serious physical injuries, an inability to work, mounting medical bills, and other challenges in their recovery. The last thing you need to worry about is gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance, and proving your claim.
Unfortunately, insurance companies and the liable party for your injuries are only looking out for themselves, meaning they’ll offer as little as possible in compensation for your injuries. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys understand that you need more than the bare minimum to fully account for your pain and suffering, so we take care of the following to win the compensation you deserve:
- Conducting a full investigation of the cause of your motorcycle accident
- Working with accident reconstruction experts to build a full picture of the circumstances of your accident
- Collaborating with medical and financial experts to compile a full accounting of your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more
- Negotiating with the insurance company and the defense on your behalf
- Arguing your case in front of a judge and jury, if a fair settlement cannot be reached
You need a lawyer with experience handling motorcycle accidents, because motorcycle wrecks are more complex—and cause more serious injuries—than other personal injury claims. When the costs involved are higher, insurance and defendants will fight harder to keep from paying out.
Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys has the experience needed to win your motorcycle accident case. We’re so confident in our experience, you won’t pay a dime unless we win your case—that’s the G Guarantee.
Leading Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Contrary to what you might think, the majority of motorcycle crashes in Louisiana aren’t caused by the motorcyclist, but by the driver of the passenger car. The fact is, no matter how careful a motorcycle rider is, other drivers often fail to notice them on the road, leading to crashes.
Some of the main causes for Monroe motorcycle accidents include
- Distracted driving
- Speeding, unsafe lane changes, and other reckless driving behaviors
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Left turn accidents
- Unmaintained vehicles or defective parts
- Drowsy driving
The cause of your accident is vital in holding the at-fault party accountable for your injuries. For most accident victims, insurance will not fully compensate for the full amount of damages. You’ll need to recover much of your damages from the liable party.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Life-changing Injuries
A motorcycle accident can affect your health for weeks or months, or even for the rest of your life. An injury can lead to thousands in medical bills, a long-lasting inability to work, and physical and psychological trauma that’s harder to measure.
Even at relatively low speeds, motorcycle accident victims are likely to suffer serious, catastrophic injuries. Motorcycles are simply more exposed than passenger vehicles, leading to a much higher risk of injury in a motor vehicle accident.
Here are just a few of the motorcycle crash injuries our clients have suffered:
- Spinal cord damage
- Brain injuries and other head injuries
- Limb amputations
- Partial or total paralysis
- Broken bones
- Burns, cuts, scrapes, and road rash
- Back or neck injuries
- Organ damage
- Wrongful death
If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle wreck, you need to focus on getting the medical care and other services you need to heal. Let the injury lawyers with Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys take care of the fight for your fair compensation.
Motorcycle riders are often unfairly accused of causing their crashes. We know the facts: in the vast majority of cases, the other driver is at fault for the motorcyclist’s injuries and other damages. If you’re being unfairly accused, our legal team will advocate on your behalf.
What Should I Do If I’ve Been in a Motorcycle Accident?
The first thing you should do after any traffic accident is move to a safe location, if you can, and call 911. Paramedics at the scene will address your injuries, and their reports plus the official police report will serve as evidence in your claim.
You should also report the accident to your insurance agency, but don’t accept any preliminary settlement offers, from them or from the other party’s insurance. Remember: insurance companies are interested only in their own bottom lines, meaning they’ll try to settle as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Small settlements mean you’ll be left on the hook for the bulk of your damages.As soon as you can, call Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys at 318.716.3888 for a free consultation about your case, or fill out our easy-to-use online form. We’re here to help you maximize your compensation, so that you can heal from your injuries and move on with your life. Call us today.
