Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do After A Motorcycle Accident?
The first thing you should do after a motorcycle accident is call 911 to get medical attention. Even if you don’t feel hurt, the adrenaline could be covering up injuries you don’t realize you have. If you can, take pictures of the scene of the accident from as many different angles as possible. Exchange information with the other driver and get contact information from any witnesses. Never apologize for anything while you’re at the scene of the accident.
Do I Really Need a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?
While you can represent yourself legally, having a motorcycle accident attorney could give you the best chance of receiving compensation.
What Will a Lawyer Cost Me?
Hiring a qualified and experienced Colorado Springs motorcycle accident lawyer to fight for you is meant to be affordable. In fact, you won’t pay anything upfront. There are no costs at all to sit down and discuss your case with us. We also won’t charge you a thing at all unless we win your case and get you compensation. So, if you’re wondering if you can afford to work with a team like Heuser & Heuser, the answer is yes, you can!
Should I Talk to the Insurance Adjuster?
It’s important to remember that the insurance adjuster is not on your side, and they’re likely going to try to get you to take a lowball offer. If they reach out, remember that you don’t have to talk to the insurance adjuster at all. In fact, it’s usually better that you don’t. Instead, direct them to your attorney at Heuser & Heuser, LLP.
How Do Negotiations Work in a Motorcycle Accident Case?
Negotiations are how most vehicle accident cases are resolved. During negotiations, there’s a back-and-forth process that allows us to come to a middle ground that everyone can agree with to get you the money you need. It starts when we value your case and submit a demand letter to the insurance company. The insurance company will often respond with a lower counteroffer and tell us why our demand was unacceptable. We then come back with a new demand, and so on until the case is resolved.
What Is Negligence?
Negligence is the key factor in every Colorado personal injury case. Negligence means proving that someone else is at fault. To prove negligence, we have to establish three factors.
The first is that the other person had a duty of care towards you. In simple terms, we have to prove that they were responsible for providing a safe environment, they were expected to act responsibly, and that they violated this duty by acting against their responsibilities. This is called the “reasonable person” standard.
Next, we have to prove that they’re violating this duty of care led to the accident, even indirectly. The term for this is the “direct or proximate cause” of the accident. Finally, we need to establish that your injury occurred because of the accident.
Should I Sign Paperwork?
We recommend never signing paperwork without your Colorado Springs motorcycle accident lawyer looking it over first. You could unknowingly put your right to compensation in jeopardy.
What Is a Statute of Limitations?
The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file your lawsuit. Under Colorado statute C.R.S. 13-80-101, you usually have three years from the date of your accident to file your suit. It’s important to have your motorcycle accident lawyer file within that time frame. If you don’t, you may lose your right to compensation.
Will My Motorcycle Accident Case Go To Court?
It’s important to understand that no two injury cases are alike. That being said, for the most part, injury cases don’t end up in court. The reason for this is that it’s usually best for everyone to come to an agreement outside of court. Court cases are expensive in both time and money, and when you go to court you either get everything you asked for, or nothing. There’s no middle ground. For this reason both sides generally work hard to come to an agreement. Still, sometimes there’s no other option.
If your motorcycle accident case does go to court, you can rest assured that our team at Heuser & Heuser will put together the best case we can to get you the money you need to get your life back on track.
