O’Fallon Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

When other drivers are careless around motorcyclists, the results can be dire. If you were hit while on your motorcycle, you may be entitled to compensation for your O’Fallon wreck.

Motorcycles can give you a sense of freedom that you may not find elsewhere. They’re fuel-efficient, they’re exciting, and they’re popular for traveling quickly and lightly. Unfortunately, that lightness can come at a cost.

It’s unfortunate, but many drivers aren’t looking out for motorcyclists as fellow motorists, and sadly, the results can be deadly. Now, you might be hurt and suffering both financially and mentally. That can be tough to overcome without a lawyer from Hipskind & McAninch, LLC.

Fortunately, you do have the chance to recover. When you’re hurt by a careless driver, reach out for an O’Fallon motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you seek out the full compensation you deserve.

Common Motorcycle Wreck Injuries

Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes are especially dangerous because you’re exposed to the road and other hazards. Cars and other motor vehicles are enclosed, with safety features like seat belts and airbags.

Unfortunately, as a motorcyclist, your main form of protection will be your helmet, and it may not protect you from all possible injuries. Even the mental trauma of the accident can leave you with lasting mental scars. Sadly, these damages can be costly and difficult to recover from.

Motorcycle accidents can leave you with any of the following conditions, all of which can impact your quality of life:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Emotional disorders, like PTSD
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries

Insurers May Not Help

Your injuries may be severe, but you should be able to rely on your insurance company, right? Unfortunately, insurance companies are for-profit businesses, which can hurt your chances of getting your full settlement from them.

Since your claim may be especially expensive, they may push back, refusing to respond or offering a low settlement, claiming that’s the best they can do for you. Many motorcycle crash victims lose the compensation they’re owed by not fighting back against these tactics.

Worse, they may try to claim you were partly at fault for your O’Fallon accident by using stereotypes about reckless bikers. Unfortunately, those claims could reduce your compensation if you don’t fight back, leaving you with less to recover with.

Fight Back with Help from an O’Fallon Attorney

Motorcycle crashes aren’t just expensive, unfortunately. They’re traumatic, and your status as a motorcyclist can make it even more difficult to overcome your accident. You’ll need to be ready to defend your claim, seeking out the full amount you deserve.

At Hipskind & McAninch, LLC, we understand that getting your full compensation is tough. Fortunately, our attorneys can guide you through your claim, starting with your free claim consult, and help you seek out the full compensation you deserve. We want you to know that we’re ready to fight for you before you sign anything.
