Injured in a Motorcycle or Bicycle Accident?

If you or a family member was injured in a bicycle or motorcycle accident, seek legal representation from a skilled attorney as soon as possible. Contact Youngers Law and schedule a free consultation: 505-933-8480 or 575-636-2057. Ms. Youngers has extensive experience with motorcycle and bicycle accident cases. She can seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.

Motorcycle and bicycle accidents often result in very serious trauma, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Paralysis (paraplegia/quadriplegia)
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Severed limbs and surgical amputations
  • Severe road rash burns and abrasions

These injuries are very serious and can require life-long rehabilitation and care. Attorney Joleen Youngers will seek compensation to help cover treatment expenses. You may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and emotional harm.

Hit-and-Run and Drunk Driving Accidents

Unfortunately, careless and negligent drunk drivers can cause serious injuries by acts of careless or reckless driving, including changing lanes without regard to bicyclists and motorists and driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol. Another form of reckless driving involves a hit-and-run injury involving someone who causes a crash and then takes off, leaving the scene. Attorney Youngers will hold those drunk drivers and negligent drivers responsible for their actions.

In some cases, negligent parties may be uninsured or underinsured. You may be covered under your own insurance for uninsured/underinsured motorists if someone else is at fault and either does not have insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance.

Bicycle and Motorcycle Accident Wrongful Death Cases

Nothing can ever replace a loved one. However, a wrongful death claim can be filed to seek financial compensation and to hold the wrongdoer accountable. If your loved one was killed in a motorcycle or bicycle accident, Ms. Youngers can help.

Maximizing Compensation After a New Mexico Motorcycle Accident

Our goal is to help you get full and fair compensation after a collision. There are several things you can do to help your claim shortly after the collision.

  1. Help Gather Evidence: You can help your case by gathering information that can lead to evidence. Properly documenting the scene after your accident can be an invaluable resource in your claim. You or someone you know may have taken photos or videos of the accident scene. You also may find out who might have witnessed the crash, get their names and contact information, and find out what they may have observed. In addition, it can be helpful to take photos of your injuries.
  2. Track Medical Records and Providers: You will want to keep track of all your medical records and providers. Taking notes or keeping a journal about your treatment and how you are feeling can be very helpful in later explaining not only what your injuries were, but also how they impacted you in all aspects of your life. You should also make a note and record of all financial burdens related to your injury. It’s important to consider all the active and potential long-term effects, as well as the physical and emotional toll on you.
  3. Get Legal Support: One of the next most important steps is to work with an attorney who understands how to negotiate with and navigate the insurance companies and others involved with your case. Youngers Law can help you do this. We are highly skilled and ready to advocate for you. We can help you determine and prove who was at fault for your accident and we will help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

How long before I will get compensation after my bicycle or motorcycle accident?

The length of these cases can vary a lot. Some settlements can be achieved without filing a lawsuit. Others require litigation. The case can still settle at any time between filing the lawsuit and trial. Having an experienced attorney on your side throughout this process will help a great deal. We can do the negotiating on your behalf and make sure things proceed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
