Why You Need a Lawyer
Understanding the law around motorcycle accidents can be confusing, and can become even more complex when multiple parties are involved. An attorney can help because they know the law and the legal process, and they can:
- Evaluate the strength of your case and determine what legal recourse you may have against those who harmed you
- Identify who may be potentially liable for your injuries
- Gather evidence that helps make your case stronger
Additionally, an attorney will have experts with whom they can consult to help determine what the victim’s future needs will be in order to calculate how much compensation the victim is owed. Attorneys are also used to having to talk with other attorneys and professionals. This, coupled with expert opinions, can help ensure that you get the compensation you deserve, and that you do not accept a settlement that is too low.
Having an experienced lawyer represent your interest if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident can help ensure that your rights are protected, you are treated fairly, and you get the compensation you deserve.

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can often occur because another party acted recklessly or wrongfully. When a motorcycle accident is caused by another party’s recklessness or wrongdoing, they may be liable to you for any resulting injuries. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Negligent driving
- Hazardous road conditions
- Poor visibility
- Poorly maintained roads
- Debris on roadways
- Improper or blocked roadway signs
- Construction site hazards
- Manufacturer defect
- Equipment failure
These kinds of motorcycle accidents are usually caused by another party’s negligence, and thus allow you to recover compensation. However, there are other motorcycle accidents not listed here that you can similarly pursue compensation for. Since each case is different, contacting an experienced motorcycle accident attorney at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. to discuss the facts surrounding your accident can be helpful.
What Should You Do If You Have Been In A Motorcycle Accident
In the immediate aftermath of a motorcycle accident, you may be feeling confused and shocked. If you are able, however, try to take these steps after the accident:
- Get to safe place, out of further harm’s way, if possible.
- Check yourself for injuries and get medical attention immediately, if needed. If you are well enough, check to see if other parties involved in the accident need assistance.
- Call the police. A police report can be very useful for future legal and insurance claims. While you should cooperate with the police, do not admit fault for the accident or blame anyone else at the scene.
- Gather information, including:
- The names and contact information for all drivers and passengers involved in the accident
- The names and contact information for any witnesses
- Insurance information for all other vehicles involved in the accident
- Make and model of each vehicle involved in the accident
- Names and badge numbers of the responding police officers
- Date, time, and location of the accident
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Seek an exam by a medical professional. It is important to remember that some injuries may take time to manifest, so even if you feel fine, visit a doctor.
- Contact a motorcycle accident attorney.
Even if you are unable for whatever reason to follow all of these steps, you can still recover compensation for your accident. The sooner you call the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., the sooner we can start investigating your accident and working on your claim.
