The structure, maneuvering and handling characteristics of motorcycles create unique circumstances that often lead to serious accidents and severe harm. At Law Offices of Brian J. DeLima, in Hilo, we represent injured motorcycle accident victims seeking compensation from the parties responsible for your injuries to cover the full extent of the damages you’ve suffered.
Our passionate motorcycle accident lawyers have experience representing motorcyclists injured in auto accidents involving other drivers who are:
Poor weather and bad road conditions can also lead to motorcycle accidents, but we still work to obtain compensation from any other driver whose negligence was a contributing cause.
In Hawaii, negligence by a motor vehicle accident victim can reduce or even bar recovery of damages. For motorcyclists, who are especially vulnerable to injury, it is important to take strong safety measures, such as:
Proper precautions not only can help prevent accidents but also can vastly improve the compensation obtainable when an accident occurs.
Unfortunately, even if you take all of the possible precautions, you can still get into an accident and suffer bodily injury. Under Hawaii’s no-fault system, the first step is to make an insurance claim against your own insurance company for your medical costs and other out-of-pocket expenses. Consulting an attorney can help you understand your rights and help with a fair negotiation of your claim.
If your damages exceed your insurance coverage limits, you may be able to bring a claim against other drivers who were at fault. Our attorneys can help investigate your case and determine the extent to which others are responsible damage to yourself or your property. We will bring appropriate claims against the other party’s insurers and discuss the possibility of filing a lawsuit if necessary to obtain the compensation you deserve.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, whether or not another driver was involved, you have legal remedies available. Call the Law Offices of Brian J. DeLima at 833-664-6245 or contact us online to schedule a free case review at our Hilo location.
