What should I do if I get in a motorcycle accident in Columbia?
Motorcycle accidents can be serious, so be sure to check for injuries first. Request the necessary medical care and then notify law enforcement. Once the police arrive on the scene, they'll write up an official accident report. You should also exchange driver information, collect photographic evidence, and gather any relevant witness statements.
What is the average settlement for a motorcycle accident in Columbia?
We unfortunately cannot provide an accurate estimate for Columbia motorcycle accident settlements. Amounts vary greatly by case, and your specific situation will depend on factors including the severity of injuries, medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. 75% of all personal injury cases settle for under $30,000, but some motorcycle accidents reach the hundreds of thousands and beyond. A skilled lawyer from our referral network can help you value your case properly.
Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in Columbia necessary?
Hiring a Columbia motorcycle accident attorney is entirely your decision. That being said, the aftermath of a motorcycle crash can be stressful, and professional legal representatives will guide you through the tricky process. An experienced attorney takes away the burden of paperwork, negotiates offers in your interest, and provides key industry context. You'll have the best chance at maximizing your settlement.
How much does a Columbia motorcycle accident attorney cost through Mighty Law's referral network?
We work on a contingency basis, which means you only pay if you win. Columbia legal services cost in most cases 10% less than the industry average when referred by Mighty Law. Cases that settle directly have a pre-suit fee of 33% of the gross settlement amount. Cases requiring a lawsuit include a post-suit fee of 40%.
What does the process of working with a motorcycle accident lawyer from Mighty's network look like?
We're here to listen from day one. We begin with an initial screening where we learn the facts of your case. If our legal team can help, you'll work with a case manager to collect documents and evidence. You'll also receive a personalized treatment plan at this time.
Once the medical bills are in, a Columbia motorcycle accident lawyer from our top-tier legal network will assemble your case and begin negotiations. We'll bounce settlement offers back and forth until you're satisfied, or, if we can't quite arrive at a suitable agreement, we may help you file a lawsuit.
How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in Columbia?
The average personal injury claim reaches settlement in 1.5 years, but your unique case will affect that timeline. The expediency of the process depends on the insurance company's response times, your medical treatment, and the potential of a lawsuit, among other factors.
Rest assured that Mighty is prompt at every turn. With our 60-day no-strings-attached policy, if we haven't filed a demand letter or lawsuit in that time frame, you walk away without owing us a single cent.
What happens once my Columbia motorcycle accident case is settled?
Once your case has been settled, we'll deduct any remaining fees, including legal expenses, medical bills, and loans from the gross settlement amount. You walk away with the rest. And if you found your lawyer through our Mighty Law network? We'll give you your referral reimbursement—10% back on your fee in most cases—at this time. Mighty is here to celebrate your win and ensure you recover with the most options possible.
