ELPI Law assists motorcycle accident victims who lost contracts and wages. Our clients were tragically wounded in roadside wipe outs. And they have obtained payments after disabled from their day jobs. Also, some have lost significant contracts.
Examples of our clients include:
But some personal injury victims will take an extended time to heal. So this will either limit or prevent them from working. This can be a cause of financial stress for the injured rider. And it can wreak havoc on the family of the rider. After all, lost wages remain only part of what were talking about here.
First of all, medical bills that are adding up. A vast amount of accident victims can't get public or private employer-sponsored insurance. With Obamacare, more and more employers are only hiring part-time. Mostly this remains due to its devastating impact on the free market economy.
But the majority of folks have no secondary streams of income. Also, in most cases, fallen riders stay in arrears. So this means they are behind on their leases, car payments, rent, and mortgages.
Some cannot even pay their utility bills; it gets so bad. Others take out second mortgages just to pay for necessities. Only a real expert and genius in tort law knows what to do. As a matter of fact, this is why Ehline Law is here. We are the: “Apostles of Motorcycle Law.”
In any case, this assumes evidence exists that the case has legal merit. But this doesn’t happen over night. And your lawyer needs to examine the evidence. Afterward, he can give you a frank, honest evaluation. By and large, if it looks good, you're on the road to getting your bike fixed or replaced, and getting bills paid.
Furthermore, we use it in court if they play games. Next, we file a claim with the Insurance Commissioner. But this is when the law becomes breached. After all, the law says they must quickly resolve and pay claims.
But many times getting paid could be anywhere from several months to several years. Each case and fact pattern are different. So delays in seeking legal help will certainly increase the delay in getting redress.
So in that case, your employer has to accommodate your disability. In fact, doctors determine the limited work tasks. Afterward, he or she fills out a light duty slip. And that tells your boss the duties you may perform at work.
But the injured biker will need a copy of this work restriction from the doctor. As a matter of fact, this goes to the negligent driver’s insurance company. First and foremost, these medical documents show the insurance company you mean business.
You are mitigating losses. As a mater of fact, you are creating a record of evidence. Accordingly, the carrier sees a lost wages and loss of future earnings claim on the horizon.
But most motorcycle accident injuries released to work require some stipulations. For example, the patient may require reduced hours, different duties or restrictions.
Refrain from trying to prove you can work. In fact, this could damage your ability to recover. Let your wounds heal.
Also, it hurts compensation recovery to go back to work so fast. It sends a message you aren't hurt. Maybe you are faking it. Now the other party can argue you made the condition worse.
So make sure to document any days lost while healing from the injuries. By the same token, in serious cases, we may hire a life care planner and other experts.
Accordingly, these pros come up with a value for the loss of a job, or cancellation of a contract. And the more permanent the disability, the less a victim can perform. In short, one must retain a legal pro to cover re training money and money to survive.
