The open roads around Lafayette beckon to motorcyclists seeking adventure and freedom. But even the most skilled riders can find their lives upended in an instant when accidents occur. Motorcycles offer little protection, turning even minor collisions into potentially devastating events.

In the aftermath of a crash, you may be facing severe injuries, mounting medical bills, lost income, and an uncertain future. It’s an overwhelming situation, but you don’t have to face it alone. The experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Yosha Law are here to stand up for your rights and fight tirelessly for the compensation you deserve.

The Aftermath of a Motorcycle Crash

Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries due to the lack of protection riders have compared to occupants of passenger vehicles. Some common injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and concussions
  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Road rash and disfiguring lacerations
  • Internal organ damage and bleeding

These injuries can lead to lengthy hospital stays, surgeries, and ongoing rehabilitation. Medical expenses can quickly spiral out of control, especially if you’re unable to work during your recovery. The physical, emotional, and financial toll can be immense.

Insurance companies are well aware of the high stakes in motorcycle accident claims. They may try to take advantage of your vulnerability and pressure you into accepting a settlement that falls far short of covering your losses. 

That’s why it’s so crucial to have an experienced legal advocate on your side who understands the true value of your claim and will fight for every penny you deserve.

Learning about personal injury law

Understanding Indiana Motorcycle Accident Laws

Indiana has specific laws that can impact your legal case after a motorcycle crash:

  • Statute of limitations: In most cases, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. It’s crucial to take action before this window closes.
  • Comparative fault: If you are found partially at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. However, you can still recover damages as long as you are less than 51% at fault.
  • Helmet laws: Indiana only requires riders under 18 to wear helmets. However, wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of severe head injuries. Not wearing one could potentially be used against you by the insurance companies.

An experienced Lafayette motorcycle accident attorney will thoroughly understand these laws and how they apply to your unique situation. We can guide you through the complex legal process while protecting your rights every step of the way.

Investigation to determine the fault and liability of crash

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can happen in a split second due to a wide range of factors:

  • Distracted or reckless drivers who fail to watch for motorcycles
  • Unsafe lane changes or failure to yield right of way
  • Speeding and aggressive driving
  • Impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol
  • Poor road conditions like potholes or loose gravel
  • Defective motorcycle parts

Determining liability after a crash often requires an in-depth investigation. The skilled attorneys at Yosha Law will gather evidence, interview witnesses, and consult with experts to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

We’ll carefully examine factors like police reports, medical records, eyewitness testimony, and accident scene photos to uncover the truth of what happened. Our team has the resources and expertise to stand up to the insurance companies and their armies of corporate lawyers.

Damages You May Be Entitled To

A serious motorcycle accident can impact virtually every aspect of your life. The legal term for the losses you’ve suffered is damages.

Compensatory damages are categorized into two distinct types: “general damages” and “special damages.” General damages cover non-economic losses, often known as pain and suffering, while economic damages have a clear dollar value and may include:

  • Medical expenses, both current and future
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Reduced earning potential if you’ve suffered long-term impairment
  • Property damage to your motorcycle

Non-economic damages are more subjective but equally important. They may encompass:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement or disability
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In rare cases, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the at-fault party for particularly egregious behavior and deter similar conduct in the future.

No amount of money can undo the trauma you’ve experienced. But a fair settlement can provide vital resources to aid in your recovery and help you move forward. Our dedicated attorneys will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation possible in your case.

We’ll work with medical experts to fully understand your prognosis and any long-term implications of your injuries. We’ll factor in the expected costs of future treatment, adaptive equipment, home modifications, and other needs. 

Our goal is to secure a settlement or verdict that safeguards your financial future and provides peace of mind.
