Your Rights After Being Involved in a Car Accident or Motorcycle Accident

The adverse insurance company is responsible for your medical expenses, up to the policy limits, when you have been involved in a vehicular accident. This applies to passenger vehicles as well as motorcycle accidents. The adverse insurer is bound by the terms of their policy to cover these expenses. In addition to your medical expenses, their policy should cover your lost wages from work due to the accident and provide compensation for household tasks that you have to have someone else complete because of your injuries.

When The Other Party Is At Fault

When the other party to the accident is at fault for the accident, such as a drunk driver car accident, there are certain obligations that their insurer must comply with to compensate the non-responsible party. These obligations include:

  • Provide a rental vehicle, or reimburse the injured party for a rental they obtained, if their vehicle required repair or needs to be replaced due to the accident.
  • Medical costs must be covered by the at-fault party. This may also include future medical costs associated with your recovery from the accident.
  • Pain and suffering. The pain and suffering you have endured as the result of your injuries must be compensated under the law. The State of Arizona currently does not have caps on this type of compensation.

The attorneys at Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law Accident Law will evaluate the insurance policies of both the injured party and the at-fault party to determine if there are additional forms of compensation that the injured party is entitled to under the law and the terms of the policy.

Motorcycle Accidents

It is an incorrect assumption to believe that anyone who is driving a motorcycle and is involved in an accident is automatically at-fault. Many people believe that the risk of driving this type of vehicle removes any responsibility of other drivers. This is incorrect.

Motorcyclists have the same rights under the law and the terms of their insurance policies as drivers of passenger vehicles. The only difference between these types of accidents is that motorcycle drivers often suffer catastrophic injuries during an accident because of the style of vehicle they are driving.

Commercial Vehicles and Semi Truck Accidents

Commercial vehicles, including semi-trucks, are bound to different laws and regulations when operating on the road. Because of the size and weight of these vehicles, accidents involving one of these large trucks can cause extensive damage, catastrophic injuries, and possibly death to the passengers in the smaller vehicles.

People who have been injured in a commercial vehicle accident are entitled to receive the same forms of compensation as other types of accidents, but there may be more parties at fault for the accident. People injured in a commercial vehicle accident need to work with a law firm that is familiar with the laws and regulations concerning this industry and how these accidents can impact the injured person’s life.

Speak to an Attorney That Understands Personal Injuries

When you need a specialist for a medical condition, you do not go to the local clinic for help. The same type of thought process must apply to legal situations. When you need help with a personal injury, you need a law firm that handles these types of cases. While all attorneys can represent any type of case, you will always receive better representation when you seek out a “legal specialist.”
