Cheyenne Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Representing Injured Wyoming Motorcyclists & Their Loved Ones
A motorcycle accident has the ability to completely alter your life. Because
motorcycle operators and passengers have relatively little protection
in the event of a crash, they tend to suffer serious injuries when they
are involved in accidents with larger, heavier vehicles, like
commercial trucks. All too often, these accidents ultimately prove fatal.
If you were injured or your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident,
you believe someone else is at fault, reach out to Lowe Law Firm. Our
Cheyenne motorcycle accident attorneys are ready to listen to your story
and learn how we can help you work to obtain the fair compensation and
justice you deserve. Throughout the process, our team will provide attentive
and personalized legal guidance, handling everything from start to finish
so you can focus on healing.

How Can I Tell Who Is Liable for My Damages?
When it comes to recovering compensation in
personal injury claims, liability is critical. The liable party is the one responsible for paying
damages, such as your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
So, how can you tell who was liable?
In most cases, the liable party will be the person who caused the accident.
However, under Wyoming’s rule of modified comparative negligence,
you can still recover compensation for your damages if you were partially
at fault for the accident—as long as the other person was
more at fault than you were. If you are less than 50% to blame for the accident,
you can file a personal injury claim, but your total recovery will be
reduced by the same percentage of fault you are determined to have.
When determining who is liable for your damages, our attorneys look at
a variety of factors, including but not limited to:
- Evidence regarding how the accident occurred
- The speed at which you and the other driver were traveling when the crash occurred
- Whether the other driver was intoxicated/above the legal alcohol limit
- Whether the other driver was behaving negligently at the time of the collision
- If the other driver violated any traffic laws or acted carelessly
- The other driver’s cell phone records, which can be used to prove
- Whether there were any defects in the design or construction of the road
- If your motorcycle or the other vehicle had any defects/defective parts
- Whether flaws in the design, manufacturing, or labeling of any safety equipment
contributed to your injuries
Once we have secured all applicable evidence—as well as records of
your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other economic and non-economic
losses—we are able to build a solid, fact-based case in support
of your recovery. Our Cheyenne motorcycle accident attorneys work to maximize
our clients’ cases in order to help them not only move forward after
an accident but thrive.
What Damages Can I Recover After a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle accident claims are often fairly complex due to the fact that
motorcycle accident injuries are often very serious. As a result, they
tend to have an immediate
and ongoing impact on victims’ lives. When seeking compensation on your
behalf, we work to recover a settlement or verdict that takes into account
your present and future costs.
Depending on the specifics of your situation, you may be able to recover
the following damages after a motorcycle accident:
- All medical expenses related to immediate treatment
- Ongoing medical care costs
- Ambulance and hospital fees
- Prescription and over-the-counter medication costs
- Expenses associated with necessary medical equipment (wheelchairs, prosthetics, etc.)
- The cost of making modifications to your home to accommodate a disability
- Lost wages/income from time taken off work to receive treatment/heal
- Lost future earnings, if your injuries are expected to last
- Lost or reduced earning ability, if your injuries prevent you from returning to work
- Pain and suffering, including both physical pain and emotional distress
- Costs associated with counseling/treatment for mental health issues
If your loved one ultimately died as a result of his or her injuries, you
may be able to file a
wrongful death claim. Such a claim allows you to seek compensation for your losses, including
medical expenses associated with the deceased’s final treatment,
funeral costs, loss of companionship, loss of support, loss of income/expected
income, and more.
