Westmoreland County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

US Route 30 cuts through Westmoreland County from North Huntingdon to Ligonier and US Route 22 goes from Murrysville to Blairsville. Both roads are scenic and when the weather is nice, riders can be seen throughout Westmoreland County taking advantage of these scenic roads. Our Personal Injury Team lives and works in Westmoreland County. We are familiar with the roads and the stops that are popular for riders. When an accident happens, it is more than just a point on a map to us. It’s a road we’ve used or it happened at a place that we’ve been. Our connection to the community is essential in fully understanding what happened. When an out of county, or worse out of state, insurance adjuster tries to pay less than full compensation to someone injured in our community, we take it personally. This is our community.

How Much is My Case Worth?

At trial, a judge or jury cannot rewind the clock and make it so the motorcycle accident never happened. Often, the only compensation that can be awarded is money. It is common to hear from outside voices that lawyers and their clients are taking advantage of a situation. It’s our experience that that cannot be further from the truth. It is a perfectly fair question to ask “how much is my case worth?” You were injured and monetary compensation is usually the only relief available. It’s the only legal way to make you whole again. 

Every motorcycle accident case is different. Our team will evaluate your injuries, review medical records, and speak with our network of medical professionals to fully understand what “full compensation” is in your case. You will have an honest conversation with the personal injury attorney handling your motorcycle accident case about what monetary compensation is appropriate. 

I Was Involved in a Motorcycle Accident, Should I talk to an Insurance Company?

You SHOULD file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. But, DO NOT give a recorded statement. Also, DO NOT discuss your injuries. If they ask, just tell them that you will be evaluated as soon as possible by a medical professional. An insurance adjuster will try to use your statement against you. Until a medical professional fully evaluates you, you do not know what your injuries are. Insurance adjusters are known to try and limit your claim by using your statements against you. DON’T LET THEM. Call the personal injury team at Bononi and Company so that we can fight for full compensation. 

When you hire our personal injury team, we handle your claim so that you can worry about recovery. You do not have to worry about what to say because we are there to take care of these difficult conversations for you. It’s our job to guide your case from the filing of a claim to full compensation with you doing as little work as possible.

I Wasn’t Wearing a Helmet. Will that be Held Against Me?

Many believe that if you were not wearing a helmet and were injured in a motorcycle accident that you cannot recover for your injuries. That is not true. If you are injured and it is not your fault, you can still recover monetary compensation for your injuries. However, the amount that you are entitled to may be reduced if you not wearing a helmet contributed to those injuries. Our personal injury team has the experience necessary to know how to protect your claim and what to do if you are being blamed for your injuries. 

Will there be a Trial?

We prepare every case as if it’s going to go to trial. Our team of attorneys, support staff, and accountants, along with our network of professionals, will be utilized to make sure no stone is left unturned. It’s our firm’s policy to always be ready. We believe this approach helps to ensure that you get the money that you deserve. In most cases, we are able to negotiate settlements that fairly compensate our clients. So, we are always ready to go to trial, but we know when a fair settlement is reached.
