Colorado Springs Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers
When you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, choosing the right attorney to represent your interests is one of the most important decisions you will make. At the McDowell Law firm, our Colorado Springs based motorcycle injury lawyers understand what it means to work with you to fight against the at-fault party’s insurance to get you the settlement you deserve.
Unfortunately, most motorcycle accidents result in serious or even catastrophic injuries to the motorcycle rider. It is all too common that motorcycle accidents cause the wrongful death of the motorcyclist or passenger.
Free consultation. NO Fees unless we recover for you!
We offer free, no obligation consultations for all Colorado motorcycle accident cases. When you’ve been injured, you have questions that only an experienced and knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney can answer for you. Call (719)227-0022 to schedule a time to meet personally with Josh McDowell to discuss the facts of your case, and formulate an individual strategy. In all motorcycle accident cases we offer a contingency fee, which means there are no attorney’s fee unless we recover a settlement for you.
How can we help you?
In every case, our first job is to represent your best interests, and to get you the best settlement for your injuries and expenses. We will work with you to establish liability and show the other party is at fault for the accident they caused. We will work with your medical providers to obtain records and bills to show the extent of your injuries. And finally, we will be your advocate with the insurance company to get you compensation for your injuries, expenses, pain and suffering.
What should I do if I am in a motorcycle accident?
• You should always call 911, and if possible, get yourself in a safe place. If you are severely injured, you may need to wait for first responders before trying to move yourself and risk further injury.
• Do not move the motorcycle or vehicles until police arrive.
• Take a lot of photos of the accident. These photos cannot be perfectly recreated after the scene is altered and the vehicles are moved. This may be extremely important later in your case.
• Speak to the first responders about your injuries and seek medical treatment.
• Call an attorney to discuss your next steps. In many cases, having an attorney from the beginning can help you make the rights decisions from the very beginning and possibly avoid costly mistakes.
What should I do if I am injured in a motorcycle accident?
You should always play it safe, and seek immediate medical care. Many motorcycle accidents result in severe injuries to the motorcycle riders based solely on the physics of a car versus motorcycle accident and the lower level of protection a motorcycle rider has from injury. It may seem like a no-brainer, but if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, get to the Doctor! In every case when a person has been injured, they should obtain medical treatment, and always follow their doctor’s orders.
In many cases, going immediately to the emergency room (ER) to be checked out is the right decision.
Some common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:
• Spinal injuries: including thoracic, lumbar (low back) and cervical (neck) injuries
• Soft tissue damage
• Road rash injuries
• Broken bones
• Concussions and brain injuries
• Torn muscles and rotator cuffs
Motorcycle injuries can be life-changing events for injured riders. Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can prevent people from obtaining work in their chosen field, pursuing sports and hobbies, doing household chores, and even living a pain free lifestyle day to day. In many ways, a serious motorcycle accident can change a person’s way of life forever.
How much is my motorcycle injury claim worth?
This is a very difficult and complex question to answer. It depends on a variety of factors including liability for the accident, the damages you’ve suffered and the insurance coverage available. Attorney Josh McDowell will analyze the facts of your case, review the damages, and work to obtain the best settlement for you. Once we have reviewed the relevant factors in your case, we will submit a settlement proposal to the insurance companies in an attempt to reach a settlement that is fair to you. If we are unable to reach a settlement in your case, we may file a lawsuit in order to obtain compensation for your injuries.
How much will it cost me to hire an attorney?
We offer our services on a contingency fee basis, meaning you won’t owe attorney’s fees unless we recover for you. This means once we obtain a settlement or favorable verdict in your case, we are paid a percentage of the recovery. Your goal and ours is the same: to obtain the highest recovery possible in your case.
