The cold winter months are a thing of the past – at least for now. That means that motorcyclists are going to take to Minnesota roadways so they can enjoy the freedom of the road. The increase in motorcycle traffic means that all drivers on the roads have to pay close attention as they drive.
Motorcycles are smaller profile vehicles, which can make it difficult for other drivers to see them. Obstacles, such as vehicles parked on the side of the road or trees, can make it hard for other drivers to see the motorcycles. That doesn’t mean that the other drivers are off the hook if an accident occurs. Instead, motorcyclists can opt to seek compensation from the driver who slammed into them. Determining who to seek compensation from and how to present the case are important considerations.
We can help you to determine what factors led to the accident, which is one of the critical components in your claim for compensation. The factors of the accident can show that the driver who smashed into you was acting in a reckless or negligent manner. For example, we might be able to show that the driver was texting while driving or that the driver was speeding.
When we file your claim for compensation, we will determine the monetary damages that you will seek. This can include money to pay for all medical bills, including future medical care costs, that are associated with the accident. It can also include money that you weren’t able to earn because you were healing after the accident.
