What Happens Next After Your Motorcycle Accident

With spring in sight, many are preparing to get back on the road. Before you head out, take a moment to think about safety. Inspect your bike and take it in for regular maintenance. There are steps that you can take to minimize risk, as injuries in Motorcycle Accidents are often severe and life-threatening. If you are in an accident, be sure you understand your rights. At James H. Brown & Associates, we fight for you. You can be confident you will get the compensation that you deserve.

Critical Investigation

Motorcycle Accidents require thorough and timely investigation to ensure the crucial evidence in your case is preserved. This often involves a team of lawyers, accident reconstruction engineers and specialized analysts to work diligently to gather evidence so that your strongest case is advanced. We have our team of accident reconstruction engineers and analysts attend at the scene of the accident to ensure the critical evidence is gathered in your case. Don’t wait. Contact our Accident Injury Lawyers.

Know Your Rights As A Motorcyclist

In Alberta, the plaintiff, the person injured in an accident, has the onus of proving on a balance of probabilities (that it is more likely than not), that their injuries were caused by the negligence of the other driver. In some cases, the motorcyclist is found to have contributed or been partly at fault for the accident. Factors considered include whether the motorcyclist was following the laws and regulations and whether the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet. The timely investigation is critical. Contact us today so that you understand your rights and your options.

We Are Available 24/7

When you have been injured in a Motorcycle Accident, help is only a phone call away. Whether you are waiting with your loved one at the hospital or you just returned home after midnight, at James H. Brown & Associates, we are available 24/7, seven days a week for a free consultation.

We provide in-person, phone and virtual consultations and are here to answer your questions. If you do not know what to do, you are not alone. Many people have never been in an accident before and have never had to contact a lawyer before. We can help. We explain the process right from the start so that you can focus on your recovery.

Calculation of Damages In A Motorcycle Accident

You may be worried about whether you will ever fully recover from your injuries or whether you will be able to return to work. Most people do not know the long-term nature of their injuries right after an accident. Recovery takes time and is different for each person. Do not wait to call us. The critical evidence in your case needs to be gathered immediately after the accident. We can help you understand how compensation for damages, or the losses you have suffered, are calculated. We fight for you and advance your strongest case so you are confident you will get the compensation that you deserve.

If You Or A Loved One Has Been In A Motorcycle Accident: Don’t Wait

If it has been months or more than a year since the accident, and you have been hesitant to speak with a lawyer, call us today for a no-obligation, free consultation. We can answer your questions and concerns so that you understand your options. Remember that there are limitation laws in Alberta that specify the time you have to sue. After the limitation has passed, you lose the right to sue.  Do not wait until a few days before the limitation date to decide if you will pursue your case. The sooner you call us after the accident, the sooner we can help you navigate the process.

Help is a Phone Call Away

As you head back out on the road, take time to get comfortable again riding. For many people, they haven’t been out riding since last summer. Be familiar with the controls and operations of your bike. Take your bike in for tune-up and regular maintenance. Be sure to wear a proper helmet and protective gear. Let’s return to the roads safely this summer and rest assured that if you or a loved one are in a motorcycle accident, you know where to get help.
