Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Riding a motorcycle is more than just a mode of transportation for many. It's a sense of freedom, adventure, and a way of life. However, when you are badly injured in a catastrophic motorcycle accident, your sense of freedom and identity are replaced by pain and worry for the future. The financial and physical burden an accident brings with it can be overwhelming. On top of medical costs, you may also need to take time off work while recovering from your injuries.
When you get hurt in a motorcycle accident, pursuing compensation is one of the most important things you can do. The money that comes from your settlement is crucial to you and your family. Unfortunately, insurance companies don't make it easy for you to recover the compensation you need after a wreck. They may attempt to take advantage of you by tricking or pressuring you into accepting a settlement offer that's far less than you're entitled to.
We understand how difficult life can be after an accident. You have enough on your plate without the added stress of a lawsuit or injury claim. That’s where our motorcycle accident attorneys can help. We will advocate for your right to fair compensation and provide you with the compassionate, personalized service you need to get through this whole ordeal and get your life back on track.
Don't Expect the Insurance Company To Let You Win Without A Fight
Insurance companies make money by paying as little as possible to motorcycle policyholders and accident victims. Therefore, they'll have you jump through as many hoops as possible during the settlement process to make you more eager for a fast offer that is much less than you need to recover fully.
If that doesn't work, they may deploy other tactics such as placing part or all of the responsibility for the collision on you to limit their liability. Victims may not collect enough money to cover their medical bills and lost earnings if this occurs. At Henson Fuerst, we know the lengths that insurance companies will go to keep you from getting the money you need. We stand up to insurance companies every day and do whatever it takes to get out clients the compensation they're entitled to under the law.

After The Accident
There are a few simple steps that the North Carolina motorcycle accident attorneys at Henson Fuerst recommend you take after your crash:
1. Visit a doctor.
Some injuries, such as road rash, don’t seem serious at first. Other injuries take time to present themselves, and having a doctor’s opinion may help your case. It’s important that you visit a doctor immediately after an accident.
2. Collect evidence.
Take photographs of your injuries, the accident scene, and the other vehicles involved in the accident. It also is helpful to preserve any items related to the medical treatment you received, such as pill bottles, receipts, glass removed from cuts, or physical aides you used during your recovery process.
3. Write down the details.
Take a few minutes to write or draw a detailed description of exactly how your accident happened. Make sure you include the lane you were traveling in and the path of the other vehicle(s) involved.
4. Obtain the police report.
You can obtain a copy of the police report from your accident at your local police station. If no report was filed, you may be able to file a report at your local police station.

What Types of Compensation Can Be Recovered?
The attorneys in our firm may be able to assist you in recovering compensation for the following through discussions or litigation against an insurance company or negligent party:
Economic damages can be proven as specific financial losses.
- Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Out-of-pocket expenses may include medical equipment, prescriptions, transportation costs, daily care such as bandages, medical or domestic helpers, wheelchairs, and other similar items. Make sure to keep a record of any costs you paid with or without the assistance of the insurance company.
- Lost Wages
It’s important that you keep all documents regarding lost wages. These documents may include: affidavits from customers or employers for whom you could not perform work, canceled checks, paycheck stubs, written orders that were unable to be fulfilled, tax returns, or any documented difference in what you made before and after the accident. You may be unable to prove your lost wages without proper documentation.
- Past and Future Medical Bills
To seek damages for medical treatment, you must provide copies of all medical documentation, including copies of your medical records and bills from ambulance services, doctors, clinics, hospitals, and specialists. The North Carolina motorcycle accident attorneys at Henson Fuerst will collect this information for you. You may also document any oral or written testimony from your doctors or medical providers.
Non-economic damages cannot be proven as specific financial losses.
- Permanent Disability/Physical Pain and Mental Suffering
If you file a lawsuit for non-economic damages, you may also be entitled to compensation for disfigurement, scars, and other permanent injuries. Either a judge or a jury must decide the total amount of these losses depending on the facts of your case—there is no exact formula for the calculation of these items.
As your attorney, it’s our job to attempt to quantify and explain these losses by using photographs, videos, and testimonies from friends, family, doctors, and medical providers.
