Going out for a motorcycle ride can be a great way to see the world or blow off some steam. It’s a popular hobby, not to mention it can be an efficient way to travel without spending quite so much on gas.
But when riding on the open road turns into an accident, the resulting injuries can be devastating to the injured party and family members. A Shively motorcycle accident lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can represent your needs.
Vulnerability on the Road
If you’ve been the victim of a negligent driver who failed to share the road, you are likely entitled to compensation. An attorney well-versed in the complexities of personal injury can help navigate your situation.
When you are riding a motorcycle on the road alongside larger vehicles, there are additional risks to your safety:
- Your bike is much smaller than other cars, trucks, and service vehicles on the road, meaning there is minor exterior protection for your body and head.
- The exposure to the environment makes for a quick landing on the road, creating the additional risk of being hit by oncoming traffic.
- There can be a lack of visibility—vehicles have many blind spots.
- Motorcycle tires may not get as powerful traction in poor weather, leading to an additional risk of slipping or turning sideways.
Motorcycle riders have an additional risk of traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, nerve damage, or loss of limbs. The exact nature of your injuries can determine the outcome of your case. Always get evaluated by a medical professional following an accident for your safety and health.

Navigating Legal Options
Just because an incident was an accident does not mean there is no legal responsibility. All parties on the road should take every precaution to avoid collisions and injuries to others. If you have experienced physical or emotional harm, are dealing with medical bills, or lost income, you should know your rights.
In some cases, a lawyer may not be your first thought. Maybe your insurance company has paid out everything, covered all your bills, and you feel you’ve been treated fairly. Insurance companies often try to avoid any payouts they deem unnecessary, sometimes meaning they underestimate the actual cost of your injuries, which can have long-term effects on your life.

How a Loved One’s Injury Affects You
After an accident, your priority should, of course, be your recovery. If your loved one is the victim, your priority could be to offer support and care, leading to additional and unexpected responsibility. That can quickly turn into job loss, long-term loss of income, and increased pain and suffering.
An attorney from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help you get proper compensation through a settlement with your insurance company. There may be grounds to demand the payment from the liable party directly, mainly if the accident was caused by a driver who was drinking, driving recklessly, or refusing to share the road with you.
Establishing liability and filing a settlement can be long and complex. Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help you through the process.
What Can Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers Do for You?
When Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers take on your case, it is personal. The process from contacting our law office to receiving a settlement can be confusing, but there is a systematic way to break it all down.
The first step is investigative and involves collecting any relevant documents or evidence. This can include contacting eyewitnesses at the scene, watching footage from street cameras, and taking your own stated recount of events. It can also involve gathering testimony from a medical professional, looking over your medical bills, and filing this evidence for their records.
Compensation Calculation & Notification of Claim
Compensation can include more than just coverage of medical bills. We can fight for you, whether for a loss of income due to time off, reduced physical capacity and enjoyment of life, or treatment of PTSD.
Our lawyers at Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers have the know-how to evaluate your exact situation and explain to you along each step what to expect next.
We can then notify the insurance company or liable party that a case has been opened against them. There should be a letter requesting the amount to compensate you, which the attorney on your case can walk you through.
