Motorcycle on its side in the road


Ron Shepherd March 27, 2020

Motorcycle accidents can happen in the blink of an eye and can lead to severe injuries, including traumatic head injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, and sometimes death. When you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle collision, you have lots of questions running through your mind. What should you do after the accident? How will you pay for the medical care required to recover? How will you recover damages and lost wages? Should you hire an attorney?

At Shep Law Group, we understand this is a stressful situation. These injuries can be life-changing and require huge medical expenses to receive treatment. Under Idaho laws, you are within your rights to hold the party responsible for your personal injury accountable. You can protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve by retaining an experienced Idaho motorcycle accident lawyer.

We are proud to represent clients in Boise, Meridian, Ada County, Canyon County, and throughout the state of Idaho.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney After a Motorcycle Accident

On average, two fatal motorcycle accidents were recorded per month among Idaho residents between 2003 and 2010. During this period, approximately 28 Idaho resident deaths per year were due to motorcycle accidents. Services a motorcycle attorney can provide after an accident include:

Determining Compensation

Motorcycle accident cases have unique considerations. One of the most important factors that determines if you have a legal claim to compensation is who is responsible for the accident. Some of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents in Idaho include:

  • Distracted driving

  • Left-turn accidents

  • Swerving in front of a motorcycle

  • Failing to yield

  • Not looking out for motorcycles properly

  • Impaired driving

  • Making a maneuver without checking blind spots

  • Speeding

  • Opening a vehicle’s door in the path of a motorcyclist

  • Sudden stops

  • Unsafe lane changes

  • Not leaving enough room between vehicles

As your motorcycle accident legal team, we will review the evidence and unique circumstances of your accident in order to determine the best way to approach your case.
