​Thompson Law Office Explains Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Following a motorcycle accident, you may be faced with expensive medical care and lost wages due to your inability to work, as well as excessive stress. The accident lawyers at Thompson Law Office, located in Lexington, can ease the pressure of handling this challenging time on your own.

If you have been in an accident, it's important to know your rights:

  • The Right to Stop and Help: It is your obligation, and not so much as a right, to stop at the scene of an accident and provide reasonable help to injured parties by calling 911.
  • The Right to Medical Care: If you have no health insurance or coverage for medical expenses on your auto policy, ask the defense attorneys at Thompson Law Office about a letter of protection. In essence, this means that a consenting doctor will be reimbursed following a successful lawsuit.
  • The Right to File a Claim: You have the right to file a claim for financial compensation. Ask Thompson Law Office whether compensation is still available if you were at-fault in the accident.

When filing personal injury claims, it’s always wise to seek legal counsel in a timely manner. There are specific laws outlined regarding the time in which you are allowed to file.

In addition, your diligence for doing research and gathering key information, including contact forms and eyewitnesses at the scene of the accident, could veer the case in your favor.

To get expert legal support following a minor or major motorcycle accident, call the lawyers at Thompson Law Office at (859) 280-2222 .
