Let Us Help You Recover Your Losses

Work with our motorcycle accident lawyers in Gastonia, NC, to get the compensation owed to you. Our goal is to verify what occurred in your accident and then get as much detail as possible about what caused the problem. We will then work with you to determine what your losses were. Often, there are quite a few types of losses that you may not have taken into consideration. Here are a few of the types of losses we will look for:

  • Medical bills: A settlement regarding your medical costs related to the injuries you suffered in the accident should account for any emergency care you required, surgeries, physical therapy, and other medical costs. The award we will seek should compensate you for your actual medical expenses up to the time you agree to the settlement, as well as for an estimate of any medical costs you will have in the future.
  • Lost wages: If you cannot work because of the injuries you suffered in the motorcycle crash, you can receive an award that reimburses you for any income you were unable to earn. If you cannot work in the future or if you need to work fewer hours, a calculation of this amount can be part of the settlement, too.
  • Pain and suffering: The pain and suffering judgment after a motorcycle crash that was not your fault can include payment for things like reduced quality of life, disfiguring or disabling injuries you suffered, emotional trauma, nightmares, depression, and an inability to participate in the activities you enjoyed before the accident. This pain and suffering part of the settlement is the trickiest one to negotiate, because it doesn’t involve fixed amounts. Our team’s experience in this area can provide a significant benefit to you.

You don’t have to guess what your claims may be. Let our team help determine what they are. Let our motorcycle accident lawyers in Gastonia, NC, consider all of your claims, including long-term pain and suffering.

Gastonia, NC, Motorcycle Accident FAQs

You may have many questions about your rights after a motorcycle accident. There is no better person to turn to than our Gastonia, NC, motorcycle accident attorney. Here are some common questions, but remember you can always contact us for a free consultation for personalized answers.

  • Can’t I just settle my case with the insurance company?

    You could do this, but that does not mean you will get anywhere near the compensation you may be owed.

Let our motorcycle accident lawyers in Gastonia, NC, help you overcome that challenge.

  • Do you guarantee that I will win my case?

    There is no way to guarantee results – and any law firm that promises that is not being honest with you. However, we will treat you with respect and fight our best to ensure you get all compensation owed to you. When you meet with us, we’ll provide you with a fair and usually very accurate description of what you can expect.

  • How long do I have to file a case for a motorcycle accident?

    You have 3 years from the date of the accident in most cases to file your claim. Do not wait that long to take action. It can take some time for us to develop a legal case for you. At the same time, if you think the deadline has passed, reach out to us for any help we can offer.

  • How much will I get for my motorcycle accident case in North Carolina?

    Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Gastonia, NC, will work carefully with you to determine all of your losses. Once we do that, we will then seek out compensation from the insurer or other responsible party. The amount you end up with really depends on the outcome of your case and negotiations for you, though it can also be based on cases like yours.

    These FAQs are just a bit of information we can offer to you. For comprehensive information, set up a consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney in Gastonia to help you.
