Were you or someone you love injured in a recent motorcycle wreck? Then, you can hold the at-fault driver accountable. Our motorcycle accident lawyer will help you recover your medical bills and other post-accident costs. Our client-focused team is passionate about pursuing damages for victims of negligence-based accidents.
At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we fight hard to recover the compensation that lets you start putting your life back together after an unexpected injury or loss of a loved one. We listen to your story with compassion, gleaning details that help us build the most compelling case possible for you.
Compensation for Victims of Motorcycle Wrecks
No two motorcycle accident cases are exactly alike. Thus, no two will result in identical recoverable damages for the injured party. So, when we accept your case, we treat you like an individual, not a case file. In addition, we’ll carefully assess the specific monetary expenses and losses you incurred.
Our personal injury lawyer will help you recover the following damages:
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future loss of income
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Property damage or total loss
- Lasting disability or disfigurement
- Ongoing physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
Wrongful Death Following a Motorcycle Wreck
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were more than 5,500 motorcycle accident fatalities in 2020. If your loved one died in a motorcycle accident, please accept our sincerest condolences. While you grieve their loss, we’ll pursue wrongful death damages, including funeral and burial costs for your loved one and your family’s loss of their financial, emotional, and domestic support.
Understanding and Complying With the Applicable Statute of Limitations
Most personal injury and wrongful death cases settle out of court. If you cannot settle your claim, it must go to court for final resolution. The state where your accident occurred will determine how much time you have to file your lawsuit. In general:
- North Carolina gives you three years to comply with the personal injury statute of limitations, per G.S. § 1-52, and two years to comply with the wrongful death statute of limitations, per G.S. § 1-53
- South Carolina gives you three years to comply with the personal injury and wrongful death statutes of limitations, per S.C. Ann § 15-3-530
Filing your lawsuit on time is mandatory. Thus, the sooner you put our law firm to work on your case, the better. With enough notice, we will meet the applicable filing deadline and ensure the court will not dismiss your case for failing to adhere to it.
Commonly Reported Causes of Motorcycle Wrecks
To pursue the at-fault driver who caused your motorcycle wreck, our legal team must prove its cause. The most common causes of motorcycle wrecks include the following:
- Vehicles making left-hand turns
- Interior and exterior distractions
- Road and weather conditions
- Alcohol or drug intoxication
- Speeding or reckless driving
Our investigation will uncover the cause of your accident and identify the at-fault driver and their insurance provider. Then, we’ll collect evidence that drives your case toward a monetary settlement versus a lengthy trial.
How We Prove the Cause of Your Motorcycle Wreck
We never strain you or your family with proving what caused your accident. Instead, we will collect the following evidence to prove the validity of your case and its financial value:
- Your motorcycle accident report: It will contain contact details for all involved parties, potential causes of the collision, points of impact, and the investigating officer’s narrative.
- Your medical records and bills: They will document your injuries, their extent and severity, and your known and anticipated treatment and recovery costs.
- Employment and salary history records: They will prove how much income you lost due to your injuries and recovery time.
- Accident scene photos: These can come from dashcam, smartphone, security, and surveillance cameras.
- Witness statements: We will locate and interview anyone who observed the collision and any expert witnesses who support your case.
Leave evidence collection to our results-oriented team. Our motorcycle accident lawyer at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, will do more than collect evidence. They will also present it to the at-fault driver and their insurer in an organized fashion.
