Motorcycle accidents are far more likely to result in injuries than car crashes. They also lead to more severe injuries that are more costly to treat, according to a recent study at the University of Toronto. The study showed the following results when comparing motorcycle wrecks to car accidents:

  • The injury rate for motorcyclists is three times greater.
  • Severe injuries are ten times more likely on a motorcycle.
  • The cost of medical treatment for injuries is double for motorcyclists.

These statistics make it easier to understand why insurance companies want to avoid paying a settlement amount that will cover all medical costs of a motorcycle accident victim.

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Ward Black Law have the experience, knowledge, and resources needed to help you receive a settlement or award that covers all costs related to your accident. You’ll also have the benefit of working with attorneys who are dedicated to keeping you updated about all aspects of your case and offering the support you and your family need during this stressful time.

Understanding the Legal Process in Motorcycle Wrecks

You can arrange an initial consultation about your case with one of our attorneys at no cost and even start and advance the legal process without paying any money up front. Ward Black Law works on contingency, meaning we are only paid from any settlement or awards you may receive. If for any reason you do not receive a settlement or award, our work is free. 

After an initial consultation with you, our first step is to investigate the motorcycle accident scene. When our personal injury lawyers are able to investigate the scene promptly, as close as possible to the actual accident time, it makes it easier to gather key evidence and talk to witnesses that can support your case. 

How Accident Scene Investigation Impacts You

A prompt and thorough investigation of a motorcycle accident scene can help determine who was at fault and document the severity of the accident. The legal team at Ward Black Law has experience: 

  • Examining police reports 
  • Gathering witness statements
  • Photographing the scene
  • Reconstructing the accident scene
  • Investigating the other motorist’s driving history

All of these steps can be vital in building your case with an insurance company.
