At least thirty people lost their lives in motorcycle crashes, marking only the third year in the state’s history during which motorcycle-related fatalities have reached this level.

While officials strongly recommend taking precautions such as wearing a helmet and completing rider courses, collisions caused by other people’s irresponsibility can never be fully prepared for.

The injuries from this experience caused me to lose an entire year from my life. The company responsible for this accident cared nothing about my well-being and refused to work with me. Despite the odds, your firm was willing to take my case. The staff that handled my case was absolutely courteous, friendly, and appeared interested in me and my well-being. I would highly recommend your firm. Thank you so much for your kind and friendly service.

Do You Have a Case?

Motorcycle riders get hurt every day because other drivers are irresponsible and careless. If you get hurt because someone else was being reckless, you could be entitled by law to collect significant compensation for your injuries. Some of the most common reasons motorcycle crashes occur are as follows:

  • Driving recklessly in bad weather
  • Road rage
  • Speeding
  • Talking on a cell phone or distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Ignoring street signs
  • Ignoring bad road conditions
  • Basic bad decision making

Motorcycle injuries can be far worse than other collisions because you’re unprotected from the elements. Have you suffered an injury like one of these in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault

Fractures 

Many motorcyclists suffer bad fractures requiring surgeries. We specialize in accident cases involving fractures with surgeries.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBIs are life-changing. They don’t even require a direct impact, as they can occur just from your head whipping forward in your helmet.

Spine and Neck Injuries

Your spine protects the nerves that let your brain communicate with your body. When you suffer an injury to your spine, you might lose feeling and mobility or even be paralyzed.

Loss of Function in Limbs

Whether from a spinal injury or harm to a limb, you may lose function in your arms, hands, or legs after an accident.

Soft Tissue Injuries

The most common type of soft tissue injury is whiplash, but this can also refer to any non-bone injury, like internal organ damage from the impact.

What Can Compensation Cover?

You could be entitled to collect compensation for your hospital stay, emergency room visit, doctor’s bills, medical procedures, physical therapy, medication, and other medical costs.

You may be able to get compensation for being unable to work, including past wages and the wages you may have earned in the future.

Pain and suffering refers to all of the invisible damages you suffer. It means everything from PTSD to mood swings, depression, and other mental health problems.

If you can’t maintain a relationship after your accident because of your injuries, you may be able to get compensation for your loss of consortium.

You could also receive compensation if your bike or other personal property was damaged in the crash.

Take on the Insurance Company

We are familiar with the tactics the insurance companies use when trying to unfairly deny or underpay claims, and we are prepared to fight back for you. You never have to speak with an adjuster — simply refer them to your attorney at Lowry & Associates in Portland, ME, and let us take care of negotiating what your claim is worth.

What’s Next?

It all begins with you scheduling a free case review in person, over the phone, or right here on our website. This is how we get to know you and your story to determine whether you have a case to recover damages.

Once it is established that you do qualify to file a claim, we will get down to business. We collect hospital bills and physician records, eyewitness and expert testimony, pictures of your motorcycle and your bodily injuries, police reports, and more to make sure no stone is left unturned.

After building your case, the next step is dealing with the insurance company and convincing them to pay you what you’re due. Fortunately, you don’t have to stress over this step — your motorcycle injury lawyer at Lowry & Associates will handle all calls from the insurance adjuster and facilitate negotiations on your behalf.

Finally, you’ll be offered a settlement with the option to accept or decline. Of course, we will be right by your side with our advice on what will be best for you and your family, but the choice will ultimately be yours.

If you do take the offer, we will continue working with you to be sure that the agreement is carried out honestly and as agreed upon. We will also help ensure you get your check as soon as possible.

Motorcycle Accident FAQ

Having a Portland, ME, motorcycle accident lawyer represent you is always a good idea. We know how to stand up to bullying insurance adjusters and fight for you.

Your case review is completely free, and you won’t owe us anything at all for our services unless we get the compensation you deserve.

Most cases settle out of court. Sometimes, however, we do have to go to court, and when we do, you can be sure that we will fight for you every step of the way.

The statute of limitations in Maine is simply a time frame during which we need to file your case. In Maine, the statute of limitations for a motorcycle accident is usually six years from the date of the accident, which is one of the longer deadlines in the country. If you wait too long, you can lose your right to compensation.

Yet, this deadline can vary depending on the details of your accident, and statutes of limitations could even be as short as one year. The earlier we get started on your case, the better off the outcome may be, so get in touch with us today and let us protect your rights.

Modified comparative fault in Maine is a law that states your compensation may be reduced if you’re found partially responsible for the accident. If you are, for example, 10% responsible and are owed a settlement of $100,000, you will only receive $90,000.

If you are at least 50% responsible, you can’t receive any compensation. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney, like our attorneys at Lowry & Associates, who understand Maine motorcycle accident law in your corner.

In Maine, any accident in a public area that results in any property damage of $1,000 or more, an injury, or fatality must be reported to the police. This means that even most fender benders have to be reported according to Maine law. Failure to report the incident is a crime and carries up to six months in jail as well as fines of up to $1,000.

You should call 911 or the local police or sheriff’s office as soon as it is safe to do so after an accident. While a police report cannot be used as evidence in your motorcycle accident case, it can determine who is found at fault and can also help you remember important details that could increase your settlement.

Maine has strict insurance requirements for all drivers. At a minimum, drivers must carry $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident for bodily injury or death, and $25,000 for property damage. In addition, Maine also requires all drivers to have a minimum of $50,000 in uninsured motorist coverage per person and $100,000 per accident.

This uninsured motorist insurance will cover your accident if the other party isn’t insured. If you were in an accident with an uninsured driver, contact our qualified motorcycle accident attorneys as soon as possible for a case review to ensure that your right to compensation is protected.

This is what is referred to as a “no-contact” accident. While it can take place between any pair of motor vehicles, motorcycle riders are most often associated with this type of accident.

Whether you had to lay down your bike to avoid a collision with a negligent driver or you swerved away from an oncoming vehicle and ended up colliding with a tree or other object, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and property damage.

Unfortunately, many no-contact crashes are also hit and runs, in which the responsible party flees the scene or does not even notice the damage they left behind.

If you were seriously hurt in one of these types of crashes, it’s in your best interest to call our law firm for advice. Even if this was a hit and run, we may be able to help you.

There are ways the law protects you even when you don’t know who the responsible driver is. Under “uninsured motorist coverage,” you may be able to collect a settlement even if you don’t know who ran you off the road as unknown drivers are usually considered “uninsured” under the law.
