Arizona Motorcycle Accidents

Do I have a claim/when to contact an attorney?

Yes, you are entitled for a claim. Accident claims like these are governed by Personal Injuries laws meaning that when a person has been emotionally or physically injured or killed by another person's wrongful acts. A Motorcycle accident lawsuit is filed when the victim seeks to get compensation for the harm caused by wrongful acts of another person(at fault). These claims are generally for negligence as the injured party has been harmed by the wrongdoer's carelessness. Usually Motorcycle accident claims can be filed by the individual himself. If the client is the wrongdoer, he/she must contact an attorney. Irrespective of who is at fault for the accident, the insurance company is responsible for paying the initial medical expenses as per the insurance policies. If the insurance company REFUSES to pay the expenses, the client must contact an attorney afterwards.

What kind of claims are there in regards to motorcyle accidents?

1. First party motorcycle accident insurance claim is made against the insurance company based on:

§ uninsured motorist - If the client is involved in a motorcycle crash with another driver who does not have insurance or in case of single bike accident.

§ underinsured motorist coverage - If the client is involved in a motorcycle crash with another driver who has insurance but the insurance limit does not cover the compensation for the injuries.

2. Third party motorcycle accident insurance claim is made against the insurance company of another driver, motor vehicle rental company, government entity or other third party.

The Process

If an individual is unable to recover damage on his own, he must file a lawsuit. According to Arizona's statute of limitation, Motorcycle accident lawsuit must be filed within two years from the date of injury.

The process involves filing and serving summons to the defendant and complaint describing the incident and its circumstances followed with the causes of action showing clear negligence of the wrongdoer. After the summons is served, the defendant (wrongdoer) has to file an answer to the complaint. The process includes discoveries such as an array of interrogatories served by defendant's attorney to the plaintiff (client) and requires written response. The plaintiff is also required to attend deposition in which the defence attorney can ask a number of questions about the accident, injuries, health history and employment under oath. The court may also ask the plaintiff to submit medical records. Finally, judgement is pronounced either by a judge or a jury. The judgement includes the case winner and the amount of money the client is entitled to get for the damages and suffering.

What kind of attorneys can handle a motorcycle accident case?

Motorcycle accident lawyer is an expert in handling motorcycle accident cases.

How much does it cost me to hire an attorney for my case?

For some attorneys, it depends on the number of hours an attorney is spending on this case and some charges a pre defined amount for handling particular type of case. Usually, most attorneys receive a contingency fee which is a percentage of the money as part of settlement or trial. In Motorcycle accident cases, the lawyer in the beginning agrees to bring a satisfactory settlement claim by doing his/her best. Initially the client agrees to pay the lawyer from the money claimed at the end of a settlement. However, the payment is agreed upon percentage of the amount claimed.

Even the litigation cost which includes fee for filing the case at the court of law, money paid to investigators, expert witnesses and for obtaining the medical records is paid by the client after the money has been claimed. It is different from the money paid to an attorney based on his/her efficient work and efforts. Furthermore, upon mutual understanding, both the client and the lawyer agrees not to charge any money if the lawyer does not succeed in the case. The client does not owe money to the lawyer in that case. Usually in Motorcycle accident cases, the fee entirely is dependent on the lawyer's hardwork and him/her being successful in obtaining money from the wrongdoer. The client still may have to repay the lawyer for the cost related to the Motorcycle accident claim.

What is involved?

The civil lawsuit involves, issuing of summons, filing of a complaint, written response by the defendant, discoveries, interrogations, cross examination and judgement.

How long does it take?

Usually it takes 3-4 months to settle a Motorcycle accident case. However, it can take 1-2 years if there is a lack of evidence and other supporting documents.

What type of compensation can I expect?

In Arizona, there is no certain amount the client can recover for the damages and suffering. The client is entitled for compensation for damages, pain and suffering caused by another person's negligence.

Should I get an attorney even if the accident is my fault?

Yes, the client must contact a motorcycle accident attorney even if the accident is your fault. The specialized attorney will review your case and provide appropriate action to be taken. Since Arizona is a comparative fault state, if a jury decides that you had any degree of fault in causing the accident, the compensation awarded will be reduced in proportion to the relative degree of the client's fault.

Arizona is a pure comparative fault state, meaning that if a jury concludes that you had any degree of fault in causing the accident, any damages awarded are reduced in proportion to the relative degree of your fault. For example, if you were responsible for 70 percent of the accident, you can still be awarded 30 percent of your damages.
