At the McGuire Law Firm, we know that there is always more to a motorcycle accident than the accident itself. Proving that you were not at fault in an accident can allow you to recover compensation for your injuries, but in many cases, that is only half the battle. A motorcycle accident may lead to many injuries and upfront medical costs, and some may focus exclusively on these injuries, settling for compensation that covers medical expenses while ignoring other factors.
The truth is that, because motorcycle accidents often cause catastrophic injuries or even death, they often have a larger financial toll than medical bills or, in the worst cases, funeral expenses. There is also the matter of wages lost during recovery because the victim was not able to go to work, and even future wages that the victim may be unable to earn because he or she is no longer able to perform the functions of his or her job.
Health care that is required immediately following a motorcycle accident can certainly put a strain on your finances, and proving that you were not at fault in the accident can allow you to recover compensation to offset these costs. However, proving that these injuries led to further medical expenses can increase the amount of compensation you recover so that you are justly compensated for the damages caused by an accident.
That is why you need legal assistance, even if you feel that your motorcycle accident was clearly someone else’s fault. Even if you do not need assistance proving fault, you may be able to benefit from an attorney’s help in proving just how serious the injuries are and how much money the injuries cost you.
