Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Will Fight for You
If your insurance company is wrongfully denying your claim, retaining us can be the best way to receive the payment you deserve. Motorcyclists can run into prejudiced treatment even if they followed all traffic laws. They often face unfair stigma from witnesses, police, and insurance companies, because many wrongly believe that motorcyclists are inherently reckless. We can prove what our clients truly deserve.
This includes the financial harms a motorcyclist may incur, such as:
- Lost Wages
- Medical Expenses
- Property Damage
- Diminished Earning Potential
- Emotional Pain and Suffering
In especially tragic cases, a loved one may have passed away as a result of the injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash. Our Hoboken law firm knows the pain and suffering caused by a wrongful death is impossible to make up for with any amount of money. However, you deserve compensation to pay for funeral costs, burial fees, and the financial support you no longer have due to your loved one's passing.
Evidence Is Key How You Can Help Us Help You
We understand it can be painful to think about your accident, and you may want to put it all behind you. However, hard evidence is the best tool you can provide our motorcycle accident attorneys to help build your case. In addition to what you can provide, Dunne, Dunne & Cohen, LLC in Hoboken, Avon-By-The-Sea, and Kearny has experience leading investigations into the specific facts of motorcycle crashes. These are key ways clients throughout New Jersey can aid us in their injury claims:
Gather and Protect Evidence
While the accident is still fresh in your mind you should make note of the details. These include the time of day, road and weather conditions, and direction each vehicle or motorcycle was traveling. It is also important to take photos of the accident scene and of any injuries that you suffered. If possible, get the name and phone number of all witnesses.
Once your evidence is gathered it is important to safeguard it. Oftentimes, victims keep proof on digital devices that can be compromised. You should back up your evidence on multiple devices and print out multiple hard copies.
Never Admit Fault
When you are involved in a painful motorcycle accident, it can feel normal to want to apologize even if you did nothing wrong. Sometimes, other parties may angrily insist that you caused the accident. Motorcycle accidents are scary situations that can lead to extreme rage.
Under no circumstance should you admit fault or apologize. This applies not just to others involved in the incident, but to police, insurance companies, and anyone else. Any admission can be used as evidence against you for the duration of your case. Being coerced into a confession can only harm you and your family.
Attend All Doctor's Appointments
Your health is of the utmost importance. Even if it does not seem like a medical necessity, you should schedule and attend all doctor's appointments. It is common for injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents to not be fully felt or evident until well after the crash. Attending all doctor's visits can help you in a number of ways.
First of all, a doctor can diagnose and treat any injuries you may have. When it comes to your case, medical records can be a key piece of evidence that allows us to prove personal injury claims.
