The majority of motorcycle accident cases are caused by other drivers. Generally, if you are operating a motorcycle safely, and within the boundaries of the law , you should receive a maximum compensation award for your accident.
In terms of liability, Louisiana law does not distinguish between a motorcycle accident, car accident or truck accident – all of them require the plaintiff victim to establish and prove that the other party negligently operated his vehicle.
Motorcycle victims tend to receive very high monetary awards. Although this may sound great at first, it is usually because the victim has sustained very serious injuries.
Since motorcyclists sustain these serious injuries to areas such as their head, shoulders, back, neck, hips, spine, knees and skin, it is imperative that victims obtain the best holistic care possible to heal their entire body.
Why a Holistic Approach is Best for You:
Many surgeons and specialists focus on only one area of the body, and attorneys generally send their clients to doctors who will maximize their compensation by offering expensive, but painful, surgical procedures from the start. In some cases, this may be the best form of treatment but in many cases it is not. Most surgeons and lawyers won’t tell you that.
Ramesh K. Reddy, founder and principal at the Reddy Accident Law, ensures that all of his clients have access to healers that most other injury lawyers do not even consider. He focuses on sending his patients to practitioners who treat the whole body and mind first, then take a granular, specialized approach second.
