Family Member Injured in a Motorcycle Accident
"My Loved One is Injured – What Can I Do?"
Motorcycle accidents send a shockwave through families and friends, causing a ripple effect that impacts everyone. When your family member or loved one is injured in an accident, you can feel helpless and confused. You want to make things better, but it can be hard to know what to do.
Don't feel defeated. There is something you can do to help. Contact our experienced attorneys. They know the in's and out's of motorcycle accidents and will fight to recover the compensation your loved one deserves.
Call us for your free legal consultation at 412-394-1000. We're available any time, and we can help give you peace of mind after your loved one's motorcycle accident. Let us handle the hassles, while you focus on what's most important – helping the person you care about to recover from their injuries.
Time Limits to Your Family Member's Claim
There are also time limits to filing a claim. These are known as statutes of limitations.
Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.
A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.
However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.
It's important to act fast after an accident. Evidence and witnesses disappear. You can step in and help your loved one so they can make healing their first priority without jeopardizing their legal rights.
Finding the right attorney might not be high on their list right now. But finding the right attorney will make all the difference later when it comes to paying for inevitable medical bills and lost wages.
Protect Your Loved One's Legal Rights
Insurance companies are often in a hurry to settle an injury claim for less than it's worth. Don't let an insurance company steal your loved one's legal right to the compensation they deserve. Encourage them to speak with an attorney before they sign any legal documents.
Without fully understanding the paperwork from an insurance company adjuster, your family member could be doing themselves more harm than good. Let us take care of the insurance company and the burden of paperwork, so you and your loved one can focus on getting back on track.
