possible. Write down all the information you can. Remembering all the
details of a motorcycle accident is critical, especially the

Is a Personal Injury Lawyer Necessary?
Those involved in an Abilene motorcycle accident sometimes underestimate
how difficult receiving compensation is. Motorcycle manufacturers and
insurance companies are of little help. Protecting your rights is not
as important to them as protecting their profits.
One way to increase profits is to pay out as little as possible, regardless
the extent of the injuries and consequences of the Abilene motorcycle
accident. The bottom line is the concern for you and your family is not
high on the priority list of manufacturers and insurance companies. You
need an experienced Abilene motorcycle accident lawyer to obtain full
and fair compensation and protect the rights of you and your family.
Four thousand deaths occur each year due to motorcycle accidents. Eighty
thousand more people sustain injuries. Even though motorcyclists are a
significantly small group of motorists on the road, motorcycle riders
are five times as likely, to sustain an injury or die in a crash than
other motorists. The risk of injury and death is due to less crash worthiness
and minimal protection against vehicles and other physical elements.
Injuries from a motorcycle accident are frequently devastating. Extensive
medical treatment and significant loss of work often result. Common motorcycle

· Traumatic brain injuries

We help those injured in a motorcycle accident receive compensation for
lost wages, medical expenses, property damage, and other resulting damages.
The value of motorcycle accident cases takes liability and damages into
consideration. Liability defines who is at fault. The burden of proving
the negligence of a defendant lies with the plaintiff. Damages are the
injuries and losses suffered from the accident. Significant injury compels
a higher compensable amount.
Two valuation types exist when trying to put a value on a motorcycle accident.
They are the settlement value and trial value. Settlement value is the
amount reasonably anticipated that would settle the case. Trial value
is the reasonable anticipation of the settlement amount if a case goes
to trial. The settlement value is lower than the trial value because a
settlement avoids the risk of a trial loss.
