Do I Have a Case?

If you get injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else, you most likely have a case. You should feel confident pursuing your case if any of the following applies to you.

Did You Suffer Any of These Injuries?

Motorcycle accidents can leave you with a wide range of injuries due to your exposure to elements and other vehicles. Because of this, injuries can be life-changing and tragic. If you’ve suffered one of the injuries below or any injury, our Baton Rouge motorcycle accident attorneys are here to help.

  • Head and Brain Injuries: can cause permanent personality changes, depression, rage, and other conditions. You don’t even need to experience a direct head impact to incur a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Just having your head whip one way or the other can do it.
  • Back and Neck Injuries: can be devastating, leading to some of the same conditions as a TBI. They can also result in balance issues, loss of function in limbs, or even paralysis.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: cover everything from your basic bumps and bruises to sprains, muscle tears, and even conditions like whiplash. If you have a severe soft tissue injury that will affect you for a long time, an experienced motorcycle crash attorney can help.
  • Damage to Extremities: includes nerve damage, loss of feeling in your limbs, or even having one or more limbs amputated or paralyzed.
  • Invisible Injuries: are not as apparent as physical injuries. These can include emotional trauma, panic attacks, mood swings, and other personality shifts. These injuries are typically referred to as pain and suffering, and you deserve compensation for these, too.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by distracted drivers of motor vehicles, as well as other dangerous driving behaviors, including but not limited to:

  • Obstructed vision
  • Driving carelessly
  • Driving carelessly in poor conditions
  • Speeding
  • Lane splitting
  • Driving under the influence
  • Road hazards

The statute of limitations is the time limit you have to take legal action for your injury-related expenses. In Louisiana, the statute of limitations for motorcycle accidents is one year from the date of the accident. If you try seeking compensation after that time frame, you could get denied.

Frequently Asked Questions

After a motorcycle accident, the first thing you should do is call 911 to get medical attention. Even if you don’t feel hurt, your adrenaline could be masking a severe injury. Next, take pictures of the accident scene and capture the wreck from multiple angles. Exchange information with the other driver and get contact information from witnesses. Never apologize for anything while you’re at the scene. Finally, contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to help you get the most compensation for your damages.

While you can represent yourself legally, having a motorcycle accident attorney could give you the best chance of receiving compensation.

We make hiring a qualified, experienced Baton Rouge motorcycle accident lawyer easy and affordable. You never pay an upfront attorney’s fee, and we only get paid after you win. So if there’s no recovery, there’s no fee. It’s that simple.

It’s important to remember that the insurance company is not on your side. They will likely try to get you to take a lowball offer. Remember–you don’t have to talk to the insurance adjuster if one reaches out. In fact, it’s usually better if you don’t. Instead, direct them to your attorney at Gauthier Amedee.

Not necessarily. The majority of motorcycle cases reach settlements without going to court. However, it is crucial to hire an attorney who is comfortable with litigating your case if the other side doesn’t offer a fair settlement.

Our attorneys have extensive trial experience. So, if your case must go to court, you can rest assured knowing we’ll fight for every dollar you deserve.
