The Costs of Hiring Our Lawyers
If you are like most people handling the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, you are probably curious about the costs associated with hiring our lawyers. When you work with us, you will not have to pay any upfront costs. We work on a contingency fee model, so our attorneys will only collect a fee when we secure a settlement on your behalf.
Under this model, you are free to unburden yourself from many of the financial worries that come with seeking legal assistance. We also offer a case review to help you better understand your legal standing after an accident.
What It’s Like Working with Our Motorcycle Collision Attorneys
While you focus on your recovery, your lawyer can get to work for you and take on the following tasks:
Compiling and Organizing Evidence
Evidence will be the foundation of your case. Some common pieces of evidence we can gather include:
- The crash report
- Maintenance records
- Medical records
- Expert and eye witness testimonies (e.g., other road users and medical professionals)
- Surveillance footage
- Photographs of your injuries and the accident
- Cell phone records
Identifying a Liable Party
Once our team has collected evidence, we will begin to establish a liable party. Liability is a key element to any case involving motorcycle riders. Some potential liable parties could be:
- A motorist: If they were speeding or driving while distracted
- The city government: If they failed to keep the road free of hazards
- A parts manufacturer: If they produced a defective part
- A mechanic: If they improperly installed the right part or installed the wrong part
Our motorbike collision lawyers will defend you as we strive to establish a liable party and seek justice by holding them responsible for their actions.
Handling Communication and Negotiations with the Insurer
If the other party’s representatives reach out to you because they want to take a recorded statement of your account of the accident, please decline and direct them to your lawyer immediately.
Keeping track of emails and phone calls with them is tedious, especially when you’re trying to heal from your injuries. Also, it’s possible for the insurer to twist your words and hold them against you so they don’t have to pay you what you are due during negotiations.
When your case file is complete, we will negotiate until we agree on a settlement. If not, we will file a lawsuit and argue your case in court.
Keeping You Up to Date on Your Case
Our lawyers have dealt with motorcycle accident cases, and we will answer any questions that you have along the way. You can also stay up to date on your case, as we always strive to issue regular reports and check-ins.
Time Limit to File a Claim
The statute of limitations in Illinois outlines some specific parameters for those seeking to take legal action after suffering a personal injury.
According to 735 ILCS 5/13-202, you have the right to seek justice after an incident that results in a personal injury, but you must do so typically within two years of the incident. If you fail to act within this time, you risk giving up your rights to do so.
When you get in touch with our team, we will get to work on outlining your legal options after a motorcycle collision. If you discover some new details about your case along the way, we will advise you accordingly.
