When another driver causes your motorcycle accident, knowing what to do next can be confusing. You probably just want to get the medical care you need to recover from your crash.

Why do motorcycle accidents happen?
Motorcycle crashes caused by other drivers often occur because the driver was acting in a negligent or reckless manner. Specifically, the other driver may have been:
- Speeding on the All American Freeway, I-295 or another highway in Fayetteville.
- Texting while driving, looking up directions or engaging in another form of distracted driving on Morganton Road or another busy street.
- Changing lanes or turning at an intersection without looking to see if there’s a motorcyclist in the other lane.
- Drinking and driving or under the influence of another drug, resulting in a drunk driving accident on Bragg Boulevard or another busy road.
- Asleep at the wheel, especially in cases involving late night accidents on Murchison Road or another street.
Motorcyclists often sustain serious injuries in accidents caused by other drivers. Whatever the cause of your crash, make sure you take your accident seriously right from the start. Talk to an experienced lawyer who can investigate your collision and explore every legal option available to you.
Who determines who’s at fault?
Insurance companies for all the motorists involved often have the most to say when it comes to who caused your motorcycle accident. That’s because they often have the most to lose. In North Carolina, the at-fault party is responsible for compensating injury victims for their accident-related expenses.
As a result, insurance companies often take a tough stance in such cases. Don’t be surprised if the at-fault driver’s insurance company tries to claim you caused the collision, even if you did nothing wrong. Worst of all, they sometimes get away with such scare tactics since many people believe all motorcyclists are dangerous risk takers.
That’s why it’s critical that you have a lawyer on your side. Otherwise, you might not get the money you deserve due to being wrongly blamed for causing your collision. Your attorney can help set the record straight and build the strongest possible legal case on your behalf.
How much is my case worth?
There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to motorcycle accident claims. Your case might be worth a few thousand dollars or significantly more. What matters is you should be fairly compensated for all your accident expenses.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies often only take into account short-term expenses, like motorcycle repairs and emergency medical care at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center emergency room or another nearby hospital. But the reality is you should be paid for all your accident expenses, even if they occur years from now. Such expenses may include:
- Follow-up surgery or other future medical care, including physical therapy for chronic pain or other long-term medical issues.
- Replacement income if you cannot work for several weeks or months during your recovery.
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability sustained in your accident.
- Pain and suffering in certain circumstances.
The stakes are high. Insurance companies know this. That’s why they often hire attorneys to defend their actions and deny your claim. Fight fire with fire. Hire an experienced lawyer who can build the strongest possible legal case on your behalf after your accident.
