Our Team will Help You Establish Fault and Prove Liability for Your Accident Case
We investigate the case and obtain evidence to identify the party who caused your motorcycle accident. We establish liability for your damages by demonstrating the following legal elements:
- The other party owed you a duty of care.
- They failed to uphold their duty, behaving negligently.
- The defendant’s negligence caused your accident and injuries.
- You suffered medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
For example, motorists have a legal obligation to drive with reasonable care, so as not to harm others on the roadway. If a motorist gets behind the wheel while intoxicated, violates the speed limit, texts while driving, or otherwise behaves negligently, they breach their duty of care. If they cause an accident and you sustain injuries as a result, they are liable for your damages.
We will Use Evidence to Support Your Case Argument
To support your case, we will use documentation and information, such as:
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- Photos or videos of the scene
- Accident scene reconstructions
- Expert opinions
