You can work with an injury lawyer after a motorcycle accident if you want to focus on your health and recovery while also pursuing compensation. The sooner you start your case, the better since deadlines may apply.
After getting hurt in accidents, many people try to advocate for themselves because they think hiring a lawyer is too expensive. Our clients do not have to worry about paying anything for our help, though, because we work on a contingency-fee basis. If we do not recover compensation for you, you do not pay us for our time.
Damages That Could Be Available in Your Case
A motorcycle accident can leave you with serious injuries. You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for expenses that someone else caused.
We can help you secure compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Healthcare expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning ability
- Property damage costs
- Disfigurement and scarring
If you lost a loved one after a motorcycle accident, we can also help you seek fair recovery for funeral and burial costs, medical bills, and more.

We Can Help Deal with Insurers
After filing an insurance claim, you may not know how to respond to bad faith insurance practices or understand how to prove negligence.
Our team can help you:
- File your claim
- Gather evidence to prove negligence
- Determine liability
- Interview witnesses
- Review your coverage options
- Present the cost of your damages
- Manage any deadlines that could affect your case’s progression
If an insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement, we can take legal action on your behalf and seek a court-awarded settlement through a trial.
If You Suffered Serious Injuries in a Motorcycle Accident
Right now, if you are dealing with a serious impairment, your focus should be on adapting to your new quality of life, not navigating the claims process.
Some injuries that could impede your ability to handle your case on your own include:
- Broken bones
- A traumatic brain injury
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Strains or sprains
We can pursue the compensation to which you are entitled.

When You Have Problems Getting what You are Owed
To avoid paying you a settlement, the insurance company may work against you, not with you. It could do this by unjustly denying your claim, assigning you an inaccurate percentage of fault, or lowballing your losses.
To protect you against these tactics, our team can:
- Explain your losses in a written demand letter
- Gather evidence to determine your portion of fault
- Manage communications with the insurer
- Hold the insurer accountable for what you are entitled to receive
- Defend you from being pressured into accepting an unfair settlement
You have certain rights spelled out under O.C.G.A. § 33-6-34. If you feel that these rights are being violated, a motorcycle accident attorney from our firm can help.
Other Reasons Why You May Want Our Legal Team’s Help
There could be many reasons why you may want to think about contacting our team and seeking legal help. Some of these reasons include:
- Your case involves multiple liable parties
- Your case involves a major corporate entity or a municipality
- You may be partially at fault for the accident
Multiple Liable Parties
Let’s say that your motorcycle accident was caused by more than one negligent party. For instance, a driver who rear-ended you and the manufacturer of a faulty braking system may be liable. This is a complex situation, but we can pursue each liable party for compensation.
A Major Corporate Entity or a Municipality
Similarly, cases involving large entities – such as trucking companies, rideshare companies, or government bodies – could also be challenging to take on alone. Larger liable parties likely have more resources to challenge your claim.
When You Bear Partial Liability
We can also work to show that the other party was primarily responsible in cases where you share some fault for a crash.
Timelines to Be Aware of when Considering Legal Help After a Motorcycle Accident
The sooner you seek legal advice and begin your case, the better. There are several reasons for this, including:
Crucial evidence can disappear or become unavailable soon after your accident. If you start your case sooner, you give your legal team the opportunity to capture this evidence.
Protecting Your Case From the Insurance Company
You could also receive offers from an insurance company soon after the accident, and you may not know how to evaluate those offers. Getting legal advice can help you understand your case value and prevent you from accepting an offer that won’t cover your losses.
The Statute of Limitations will not Allow You to Seek Compensation Forever
Finally, there is a limited time to file a lawsuit after an accident. Our firm can review Georgia’s statute of limitations imposed by O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 and explain its effect on your case. The earlier you contact us, the earlier we can get started.
We Work on a Contingency-Fee Basis
If you are still torn over whether you should hire a lawyer for your motorcycle accident case, consider that most personal injury law firms work on a contingency-fee basis. This includes our team.
Injured claimants do not:
- Have to pay anything up front for our help
- Worry about hourly rates or retainers
- Pay us anything unless we win their cases
- Have to pay for legal help out of their own funds
Claimants pay for our help out of the judgments or settlements we get for them. Otherwise, they do not pay us anything.

Steps to Take While You Evaluate Your Legal Options
As you determine the merits of hiring a lawyer, you could take steps to help your case. Consider the following:
Building Your Own Evidence File
If you have not done so already, you can gather evidence for your own records.
- Collect your car accident report online through the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
- Keep a journal of your pain and the physical challenges associated with your crash injuries.
Avoid Making a Recorded Statement to an Insurer
If an insurance company representative calls you and asks for details about your accident, you can keep this information to a minimum.
If you are asked to make a recorded statement, we advise that you decline. These statements are not intended to help your case. Instead, they can be used to lower your settlement value or shift the blame to you.
Get All Necessary Medical Care
It’s good if you got needed care immediately following the accident. However, if you continue experiencing symptoms or a doctor advises a certain course of ongoing treatment, continue to get that care.
By receiving all necessary treatment, you will also be recording the progression of your injuries. This record can show the severity of your injuries and that you did what you could to address them.
