We Help Motorcycle Accident Victims Secure a Financial Recovery
When a personal injury lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers represents a Houma motorcycle crash victim, we do so based on contingency. This means we will not ask you to pay a retainer or any other upfront attorney fees. We collect our fees from the compensation we recover in your case.
Before we ask you to sign an agreement to work with us, we will explain how this process works in detail, including the percentage of our team’s total compensation. Once we go to work for you, there is nothing else you will have to worry about. We will take care of the rest.
What We Do For Our Clients
When we build a case for our clients, we take specific steps to ensure their rights are protected, and we have the evidence necessary to support their claim. This includes:
- Handling communication with the insurance company and at-fault motorist
- Gathering and analyzing physical evidence
- Obtaining essential documents and files
- Working with experts as needed
- Documenting their expenses and losses
Once we have the support we need for our client’s claim, we will approach the insurance carrier and present the evidence and the case’s value, demanding a fair settlement. This often allows us to negotiate an appropriate payout. Alternatively, we can take the case to court for a trial verdict.
Our Recent Wins
Recent verdicts and settlements in motorcycle accident cases we handled range from $1,200,000 for serious injuries to a $120,000 settlement for a motorcyclist who required surgery for a broken leg.
When you talk to a team member from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we can discuss how our team can help you. This includes the strength of your case, your rights, your options for compensation, and more.
Damages Available in a Settlement or Motorcycle Collision Trial
There are two common ways to recover damages from a Houma motorcycle accident case:
- Settling outside of court with the insurer
- Going to trial and receiving a verdict in your favor
The damages recoverable in either of these methods depend on the expenses and losses you sustained. Each case is different, both in the types of damages and the value of the case. We will help you understand the possible fair settlement range of your case before we file your claim.
Common damages in a motorcycle crash include:
- Medical costs
- Future treatment and care expenses
- Property damages
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Lost wages and reduced earning ability
- Pain and suffering
Compensation For Motorcycle Accident Wrongful Death Cases
If you are an immediate family member of someone who died in a motorcycle crash, you can benefit from the damages listed above for the estate and additional damages based on your own losses through a wrongful death action. Our team can explain eligibility and this process during your consultation.
Deadlines For Your Motorcycle Crash Case
There is a deadline for taking action to hold the at-fault driver responsible for your Houma motorcycle crash. Usually, motorcycle accident injury victims only have one year to sue. This includes personal injury cases under CC §3492 and wrongful death actions under CC §2315.2.
Occasionally, there are exceptions to this rule, but they could mean the deadline comes even sooner. This would be the case if the other driver worked for a government agency at the time of the collision. A member of our team can tell you the deadlines in your case.
Damages in Houma Motorcycle Accidents Cases
Motorcycle crashes often occur because other drivers fail to see motorcyclists, misjudge the bike’s speed, or make other careless or reckless mistakes on the road. If we can prove this is what caused your crash, we can hold the other driver responsible. This will allow us to seek a settlement for the injuries you suffered and the damages you endured.
Most motorcycle crashes cause injuries that leave victims with medical expenses, missed paychecks, and other damages. It may be possible to recover these losses through a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
